Benefits of exercising early...

Exercise is great at any time of day, but for me, I like to get my training done early when I can.  There are a lot of pluses to getting it in early, here are just a few.

Getting your workout in at the start of the day means that you are more likely to get it done.  At the start of the day, for most people, your day is fairly open in terms of time commitment.  Sure you may have work or study, but those are always around.  Towards the end of the day things tend to crop up that may derail your plan to hit the gym.  After work drinks invites, sick children who need to be picked up and looked after, having to work late to make a deadline, feeling sick yourself, feeling exhausted from your day at work or school, the list goes on and on.  Getting your training session in before your day really starts is a great way to ensure that you get it done.

Another reason to get a workout done early is the feeling of accomplishment that you start the day with.  It is great to get ready for the rest of your day knowing that you have already done something for you and your health.  You also ticked something off your to-do list for the day, and if you are anything like me, ticking an item off a list is a great feeling.  So start your day with a tick, get that workout done.

It can also help to put you in a good mood for the start of your day.  It is well known that exercise produces Endorphins.  These great little hormones are known to make us feel good.  So exercising early in the day can help lift our mood.  This, added to a cup of coffee (if you're anything like me) can make the first few hours of your day feel awesome. 

So there are just a few reasons to get your training done first thing.  If you would like to join our men's group fitness sessions first thing on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday check out our group fitness page for more details.
