Early Morning Work Out?


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

If the best time for you to work out is early in the morning, but, like me, you begrudge getting up sooo early . . . get everything ready the night before. For example, I work out to emoticon , so I make sure the DVD is in the player before I go to bed, my water bottle is full and in the fridge, my work out area is clear and I go to bed in my work out clothes!
The only thing I have to worry about is getting up and exercising . . . no worry about all the prep!

You start the music, it is your favorite tune and it is in your ears...
You start to move and before you know are finished with your workout!

    It really works! I pack my gym bag with wrinkle-free work clothes, towel, etc. and put my workout clothes on the chair so that I can find them without even turning on the light. Unlike SHANNONY84, I find that my legs and back hurt LESS if I workout at the beginning of the day. (Maybe I sit up straighter for the rest of the day.) Furthermore, the other early gym users are so friendly. Regardless of age, gender, or anything else, they all say "Good morning!"
DEBBYNATION 1/24/2013 7:33:00 AM

    Anything to make it easier!
SHANNONY84 1/24/2013 7:24:00 AM

    This is so true! But then my legs kill me throughout the day!
