I’ve always been an early morning workout girl, at least as long as I’ve been working out consistently. I think it’s because if I get in the habit of doing it first thing in the morning, then I don’t run into the excuses that happen as the day continues on. You know the ones I’m talking about – I’m too tired, I have too much to do, I’ll do it after this, no after that, etc. Getting it done early sets you up for a great day ahead. Plus if something does come up first thing in the morning and you can’t get in your workout, you do still have the rest of the day to try and make it happen (but like I said, I try to avoid that and just get it done).
Obviously some days working out in the morning just isn’t an option. I’ve been there, I get it. You work at 5 or 6am and the gym isn’t open yet or isn’t open early enough for you to workout, shower and get to work on time. That’s when I started pushing back my workouts to when I got off or during my lunch breaks (depending where I was working at the time) but I took the same approach to my workouts during that hour. So here’s a few of my tips to get in that early morning workout:
