Original Article : 11 TIPS FOR EARLY MORNING WORKOUTS

I love working out first thing in the morning and I’ve been doing it for just about as long as I remember. I swam growing up so it was 5:30 am swim practice weekday and Saturday mornings…gross. As yucky as that was for a teenager, it helped set a lifelong habit of early morning workouts and I’m so grateful for that.
Although I’ve been doing it for a long time, those first initial minutes are always hard. Warm, cozy bed versus cold, rainy day? No thanks. But I get up anyways because I absolutely love the feeling of accomplishment after getting it done.
I also don’t like disappointing myself. I hate that feeling and I’d rather get up early than face that feeling all day if I don’t. Luckily though, I really love my workouts, so once the hard part is over (getting up), I get pretty pumped for the actual hard part…the workout!
Working out early sets me up for the best day and frees up my evenings to be at home with my family. Early morning workouts aren’t for everyone though, so if you already have an established lunchtime or evening routine, you can probably skip this post!
