What Time Should You Workout?

What’s the best time of day to exercise? The answer to this question is totally up to the individual. In most cases, a person’s job affects when they hit the gym.

Personally, I like working out in the evening. After a long hard day at work, I use exercise to help with my winding down process. After a good workout and shower, it’s usually time for dinner and then it’s time to relax a watch a little television.

My wife on the other hand likes to get her workouts done as early as possible. It helps her wake up and it gets her day started in the right direction. She tried working out with me in the evening but it just wasn’t a good fit for her. She enjoys cooking dinner but after a long workday and a tough work, the last thing she wants to do is cook dinner. Which has caused us to have to suffer through my cooking or order out, which is another story.

So there really isn’t a perfect time to exercise, the goal is just to get it done. Find out what works for you and your schedule and find a way to make it work. There are some people that use the excuse that they just don’t have time, but we all know how to make time for what we really want.
