Ask the Trainer: Early Bird Workouts or Night Owls?

By: Chad Ruf, Director of Personal Training

Question: When is the best time to work out? Morning or evening?

Answer: There is really no best time to work out. Some people come in early before work, some after work, and some come in early for their cardio and then again later in the day for weights. It really depends on what your goals are and what you have time for. The best rule to follow is to work out when is best for you. I have seen too many people try to become morning people and they end up missing too many workouts and don’t see results. If you are a morning person, work out before work. If you are not a morning person try to fit it in during your lunch break or after hours. Either way, it is up to you to be consistent. Whatever time you’re more likely to stick to a routine for is the best time for you.
