Morning is a prime time to work out. It’s good for your body and often is a little easier to fit into your schedule.

Doesn’t it sound wonderful to have that out of the way before you start the rest of your day? You’ll have more energy and confidence to take on the day’s challenges.
Midday workout can be fun. What about fitting in a trip to the gym around your lunch break? It’s a great way to let off some steam from the morning and get set for an amazing afternoon. Let friends and coworkers know of your plan and you’ll be more likely to follow through. Pack a gym bag with clothes and toiletries the night before or even keep supplies at your desk.
After work or after dinner? Because family life is hectic, get your spouse, and even children on board with this idea. They can be your support system for other possible household duties while you head to the gym. Planning ahead can really make a difference. Try slotting the workout time into the family calendar.
