I am truly a “morning” workout person. My friends can’t believe how early I get up to train, but that’s my favorite time of the day and above all, that time belongs to ME! So, I choose to use it wisely.

A big positive behind morning workouts is that you get it out of the way in time to meet your other lifestyle obligations. Whether it’s children’s activities following work or major networking that may be required for your job, the early morning workout gets you on your way toward getting on with other important obligations.

Morning workouts keep your metabolism elevated for hours, keeping up your ability to burn calories up throughout the day.

Mental activity is greatly improved with morning exercise many studies have shown. This is a BIG advantage for me.

Finally, it’s just NOT that BIG of a deal. All it takes is waking up 30 to 60 minutes earlier to accomplish a solid day’s workout.

Sara Weis is one of my best “workout buddies” and she recently won The Des Moines Business Record’s "Fittest Exec" in the “Woman Under 50” category. Take it from her as she claims you “feel better” and can easily move on to other daily activities --

Mornings are best for me too. I can't believe I get up so early to run. I feel so much better when I do, though.

I did my first morning run in a long time today and, while I enjoyed it, I think I'll stick to evenings. Rock on!
