How to establish a morning Gym routine – check out the tips and tricks in this Infographic
There are many benefits to exercising first thing it the morning; you feel more energised for the rest of the day, it kick-starts your metabolism, you get more out of your day plus many more benefits.
I used to workout only in the evening. I thought I didn’t have time to incorporate it anywhere else in the day. More often than not I found that my workouts in the evenings tended to be more rushed and I had to deal with everyone else that simply didn’t have the time to workout in the morning. I felt I didn’t have the focus especially if others were queuing for the same piece of equipment; not a great experience. That’s if I made it to the Gym, if I didn’t then I’d have the guilt of not going which for me made it hard to go back if I missed a few sessions.
It wasn’t until I had a couple of busy weeks where it was impossible to get to the gym in the evenings that I gave switching to a morning workout a go. It was hard getting up those first few mornings but once I got into the swing of things I began to enjoy it. I felt I could focus more, there were no queues for certain equipment, I had no guilt trip about not making it in the evenings but most of all I got a huge sense of achievement for having worked out first thing; it give me more motivation to find the time to exercise in the morning.
I’ve put together this Infographic for those who are thinking of switching to early morning gym visits and perhaps feel there are too many barriers in their way to doing this. These are the tricks I used to get me out of bed, into my gym gear and out if the door! It won’t happen overnight but once it becomes part of your routine you’ll wonder why you never worked out in the morning before.
