3 Reasons to Work Out First Thing in the Morning

By Genevieve Cunningham

We all know that working out is important. We’ve been told time and again to make exercise a part of our daily routine. We know it’s important for weight loss and energy and muscle strength. But still, many find it incredibly hard to get it done. Luckily, making exercise a consistent thing in your life may not be the hardest thing after all. Maybe all it takes is a slight change in schedule. If you’re having trouble keeping exercise a constant in your life, take a look at these reasons to make it happen first thing every morning.

To Get Your Metabolism Moving

One of the best parts about working out first thing is that it kick starts your metabolism. And if we’re being honest, weight loss or weight maintenance is a huge motivating factor. Exercise helps get your blood pumping and calories burning. After you exercise, you’ll likely be hungry. You’ve burned energy and your body is demanding more. But if you follow up your workout with healthy food, then you’re starting your day in a caloric deficit. If you like the thought of getting your metabolism revved up, working out first thing in morning is a great option.

To Boost Energy Levels

You may think that working out in the morning will make you more tired, but for most people, the opposite is true. Working out gets your heart pumping. It helps you start the day with more energy -- an energy that often lasts for the remainder of the day. While it may take a while to get used to the earlier wake up time, getting in a workout early in the morning will likely bring more energy into your life in the long run.

To Get It Over With

OK, let’s be completely honest. Perhaps one of the best perks to working out in the morning is that it’s done and over with. You don’t have to dread it for the rest of the day. You don’t have to squeeze it in after work. It’s finished! This allows you to begin your day in a healthy, and it also makes you feel accomplished right out of the gate. If you’re likely to skip the workout later in the day, suck it up and get it over with!

Working out in the morning can certainly be a challenge. It’s hard to wake up and get moving! But if you can make this a part of your normal routine, it will likely bring big healthy benefits into your life. You may even decide that you enjoy it! Give it a try, and get your health moving in the right direction today.
