I love working out at night.  I’m not an early morning person at all.  Even though I’m not working now, I can’t make myself get up early just to work out.  Plus I hate getting all sweaty and gross and don’t want to shower at the gym and then get ready for work or school.

I work out in the afternoon.  Around 4pm.  I can’t work out at night either.  Keeps me up too late!

I try to do it first thing in the morning, which for me is around 9 or 10, because if I don’t, I just don’t have the motivation to do it later.

I work out in the morning, usually. It makes me feel like I can get on with my day. I always wake up extra early and sit with a cup of coffee for about 45 minutes, an hour and let my body wake up/warm up a little bit. And it gives me some times to check Wedding Bee 🙂

Wow, 4am tho! That’s really early. I would have trouble getting out of bed that early, so good for you!

I work out after work…usually around 7ish. If I was to work out before work, it would have to be 5am and that is just a no go!

I prefer to work out in the morning when I get up, but my current work schedule doesn’t allow it. So I try to work out when I get home ~ 4-5pm, but I find it so much easier to make excuses in the afternoon!

i like (well i don’t like it per se) working out in the morning..which for me is 5:20am then go to work. I find its too easy to be busy and make excuses at night. However sometimes i double up and workout both in the morning and at night. (I have an elliptical in the apartment so its easy just to get on it real quick for 30 minutes)

I usually work at 630 or 7 am so I tend to go around 6pm. I work til 330 and class gets out at 515 so it’s just enough time for me to get over there, change, and grab my ticket for the classes i want. I don’t mind working out in the AM but i’m really scrunching it time-wise….i just end up looking half put together for work most of the time

i started going to the gym in the mornings in late january, and i love it. i used to go in the evenings, but i tend to work late and then come home and eat dinner right away, and i get indigestion if i work out soon after eating, and then i’d get tired, so i just wouldn’t go. in the morning i’m less likely to make excuses, i just make myself go. fi leaves the apartment at 6:45 every day and i don’t leave until around 9, so it’s a good schedule.

Twice a day?! You go, krissybee! 🙂

I usually do late afternoon, after class. The hardest part for me in the a.m. is that I am also so hungry! I feel like I have no energy to use. And I have to wait like 2 hours+ after eating anything  to workout, so I cant do a morning snack. But, when I really have to do a morning workout for some reason, I will sleep in my workout gear. Haha, sounds weird, right? That makes it easier to get going, and I would feel like such a loser changing out of my workout stuff if I decided to skip it!

i find it so hard to work out in the mornings!! especially in the winter – it was so hard to get out of bed when it’s grey and freezing outside. I usually work out after work – around 7 pm.

In an ideal world I would get up and work out in the morning every day. I always feel refreshed and ready to go for the rest of the day if  I do it first thing. However, I usually end up doing it in the early evening.

I would love to be able to get up early to work out… unfortunately I am not a morning person.  So I end up working out at night.
