Start off with 10 minutes whenever you can... instead of a coffee break at work, go for a quick walk. Try to find 10 minutes, 3 x each day. Do 2 cardio and 1 ST. it can be as simple as walking up and down the stairs at home. When you've done 10 minutes 3 x a day, try to increase it to 15 minutes, 3 x a day. It doesn't matter when you exercise, just do it!

My schedule is quite varied, so it's just a matter of blocking it into each day.

For me, morning is the best time to workout ``before my body can figure out what i`m doing` lol.

There is no way that I am getting up early to exercise. Ain't happening. So, I exercise after work instead. No excuses, no 'I'm tired', none of that. I go straight to the gym, get changed and get going. I have my gym classes/times in my google calendar and I treat them like every other appointment.

For the first few weeks you will have to force yourself to workout. After that it will probably become a habit and it won't be as hard.

I like to do it first thing in the morning, or mid afternoon so I have time to shower afterwards.

I exercise when I'm at my best which happens to be in the early morning. That's when I have the most energy and motivation to put into a good workout. If I wait, I often don't because I'm a morning person. Do it when it works best for you.

You get the same benefits working out at any time of day.

Go with whatever time suits your schedule the best. Some people find that working out in the morning before 'life' intervenes works for them. But if a different time of day works better for you, then go for it.

morning if possible ... by the afternoon I'm too apt to put it off and not get it done

I agree, although I feel stronger in the afternoon - if I don't do it in the mornings it usually won't happen. I record t.v. shows and watch them while I work out on either the elliptical or treadmill I have at home.

Stay focused/Keep moving!

In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.

The best time is when you'll do it. I do mornings. You have to pick and make it a habit. No excuses.

I find it is best to exercise first thing in the morning. If I don't, I won't. Make an appointment to exercise. Pick your time such as 7:00 a.m. I have an appointment to exercise. Make that appointment just as important as any other appointments that you need to keep.

Exercise when you'll do it. For me, though I hate mornings, I have to work out then. If I don't, the day gets in the way, and I procrastinate until there's no day left.

There's no "best" time for exercise; it's just when your schedule and motivation allow!
