Secrets of Success

Early Morning Work Out?



If the best time for you to work out is early in the morning, but, like me, you begrudge getting up sooo early . . . get everything ready the night before. For example, I work out to emoticon , so I make sure the DVD is in the player before I go to bed, my water bottle is full and in the fridge, my work out area is clear and I go to bed in my work out clothes!
The only thing I have to worry about is getting up and exercising . . . no worry about all the prep!

  • Great plan! Thanks for sharing! - by PYNETREE
    It really works! I pack my gym bag with wrinkle-free work clothes, towel, etc. and put my workout clothes on the chair so that I can find them without even turning on the light. Unlike SHANNONY84, I find that my legs and back hurt LESS if I workout at the beginning of the day. (Maybe I sit up straighter for the rest of the day.) Furthermore, the other early gym users are so friendly. Regardless of age, gender, or anything else, they all say "Good morning!" - by ZIEKEPPLER
