Don’t think you have the time to workout? Give this morning (or any time of day) workout a try:
You can do a run through of it once to get a little energized, or, you can go full throttle and do several reps to get a complete workout.
I used to love getting up early to exercise. I felt so accomplished beginning my day with a fitness routine. When I first started I was going to the gym. It was a different gym than I belong to now and I wanted to go first thing in the morning because, like many, I was intimidated and embarrassed. I wanted no part of anyone seeing me working out. When the gym burned down I gave up for a bit but eventually picked up my morning workouts again when I began a relationship with my elliptical.
From there I moved on to other morning fitness rituals, like Insanity and Jillian Michaels, and even attending boot camp classes. But over the last few years I’ve decided that I really like sleep. In fact, I like sleep much more than getting up at the buttcrack of dawn and sweating it up. And since I started teaching classes I prefer to run my sessions after the work hours.
But, spring is here and summer is coming and I’m seriously contemplating running early morning classes. (But again, I also reallllly like my sleep!)
Now, all that being said, I challenge you to morning workouts three times a week for two weeks. See if you can do it and see if it changes your day. I (almost) guarantee it will.
Fall in love with the solitude of the mornings and the privacy of your living room workouts – or grab a buddy and make the above-workout part of a system routine to start your days.
