I run early in the morning--I need to be home by about 6am on weekdays, so depending on my planned mileage for the day, I start between 4:30 and 5am. On strength training days, since I just do that at home, I do it in the evening, after the kids are in bed.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

I'm a SAHM who homeschools. For me, the best time most days is in the afternoon during quiet time. But some days I have to put it in at the very end of the day. And once in a great while I do it in the morning.
You have to do what works best for you. :)

I do the majority of my workout (cardio) early in the morning and my strength training in the afternoon. I do about 50 minutes of cardio and 25 to 40 minutes of strength training (at home). I will also ride my bike 2 to 3 times/week in the afternoon.
You can always try things out to see what works best for you. You could run in the morning 2 or 3 times per week, do kickboxing/taekwondo class once or twice a week in the evening, swim on the mornings you don't run. Don't forget about strength training 2 or 3 times a week. It just depends on what works for you.
There are things to consider: your work schedule, kids/spouse, caring for an elderly family member, etc. It may take some time to figure out what works for you, but once you do, it shouldn't be too difficult to stick with it.
I have a super busy go go life that I set my alarm for 5:30 a.m. and I am on my treadmill by 6. I love my early morning workouts. I also take a core (abs) class at 6:30 2 evenings a week. It's about fitting in it where you can.....It's just like scheduling anything else.
