Disagree entirely...I've tried the morning workout session and while it does leave no time for excuses which can come up with an afternoon workout, it does not leave me with an energy boost all day long. I have to get up at 4:30am to get in my morning workout before work. I do like that no one's there, which doesn't add up with your survey where people claim to have morning workouts. The place is empty and I'm there until after 6am. I guess those who have the luxury of being housewives don't have to hit the gym until after 9am. Must be nice. I do have energy for my morning at work, but after lunch and sometimes before I am crashing hard. I'm exhausted and I can't keep my eyes open. By the time I get to 4:30pm with 30 minutes to go at work all I can think about it getting sleep and I have a busy schedule that can include my second job after my full time one, theatre rehearsal until 10pm...I don't have time to be tired. I quit morning workout sessions and I either go right after work at 5 or after my other night events at more like 9:30pm. I hate for it to be late, but at least I get it in. I try more so to stick with the 5pm sessions. Late night sessions make it hard to get to sleep, but on the other hand I get some house work done.
Morning workout sessions are not for everyone, or at least early morning sessions. If you're lucky enough to not have to get up early already then by all means enjoy the gym after 9am. If I could go then, I think it might work out better, but some people have to make a living.
