Secrets of Success

Morning Exercise



I am a morning person. I get most of my exercise done early. Then if I have more time during the day, even just 10-15 minutes, I get in a bit more. It has been great for me.

More Information:

I do CURVES 5 days. I walk at least 30 min. a day. I stretch 15-20 minutes a day and do a dance DVD 3 X a week.

  • Wish I was an early riser, unfortuantely I'm not and more than likely never will be one. Now retired my body is still in working overnights---getting better but still mid morning riser. DH and I usually go to the gym late mornings or after lunch. - by FRAN0426
    Wish I was a morning person, but my body does not wake up until noon, regardless of when I wake up. Have always found my most energy late at night. - by SCOTLA

  • I wish I was a morning person but unfortunately I am not...I do have a membership in a 24 hour gym but late at night when I get motivated...there is no one to go with me.
