Yeah, tell that to my hand when it's hitting the snooze before I wake up ;)

regular morning exercise would be a little difficult if not impossible for some people who work on shifts like me. so what i do instead is, every before i shower & go to work, i stretch and/or run at least 15 to 30 minutes, whether it's morning, noon, or evening. : )
Just started workouts in the morning - for now plan is 2 days a week, but maybe will go for cardio some other day. The main reason - yes - I am usually to busy and/or tired to do anything in the evening...

I've found several of these points to be true. 1st if I don't exercise in the morning, I know it usually doesn't happen latter on. I also find I eat less. The waking up without an alarm clock is another one on the list that is true for me.
I've recently started walking four mornings a week with my best friend. It's cooler in the mornings, which is nice, with less direct sunlight (we walk around dawn, at about 7am). Other than the occasional headache (which lasts for a few hours), I generally feel pretty good after working out in the mornings. I find I have more exercise, which helps me get more done throughout the day!

I got a workout plan here if you want http://www.health-infor.com/best-morning-w orkout/
I find that getting up for the gym in the morning isn't always "easy" -- but I do feel better. And much more guaranteed to get in my exercise than if I plan to do it after work. It's to easy to postpone or change plans after work.
I made it my goal to start to like morning exercise. End result, half way through this experiment now (4 weeks)...I HATE IT. I become more stiff than with afternoon/evening exercise, I actually dont feel good and I am pushing myself to finish this experiment. I have 3 more weeks to go. I am 53, and have always felt more flexable in the afternoon and evening and being exhausted from this is giving me more headaches. If after 53 years I am still a night owl, dont see how I am going to change it...I do wake up thats for sure, but if I let my body do what it wants, I would be up till 3 am and get up at 6am...dont think health wise my body likes that routine...
Has to be a night time workout for me. I have been a night owl since childhood. I can and do get up in the morning, but exercise doesn't feel "good" to me when I do it in the morning. And also, yes, I must agree with one of the other comments about feeling hungry after exercising. It always makes me hungry and it is easier to go to bed after working out than to risk all the damage I can do throughout the day eating.

I was never a morning person either. As I trained myself to become one and goto the gym first thing in the morning, it has helped me tremendously. I feel much better once I get to work and am in a better state of mind. A highly recommended approach!
