Four Reasons to Exercise at Night

Helen Bush

Most of us are bombarded with reasons to exercise in the morning and how much better it is on your body to wake it up with a nice workout. However, some of us just do not have the option to workout in the morning. We may not be a morning person or our schedules might not allow it. Do not fear! There is nothing wrong with having to exercise at night. In fact, there are actually some added benefits in choosing to perform your fitness routine at night instead of in the morning.



Beat the crowds

Gyms are usually more crowded in the morning hours. Everyone wants to start their day off by squeezing in their fitness routine before work; therefore, if you opt to visit the gym at night you can take advantage of working out at non peak hours. At 9round, there’s never a line, so you can enter anytime.  There are NO class times so scheduling your workout around a specific time is totally eliminated.


Form a better habit

If you choose to hit the gym at night, you will be less likely to splurge at happy hour. You won't feel like indulging in too many drinks or appetizers after work if you know you have a fitness class waiting for you, and after your workout you will be more likely to reach for a healthy snack. You will easily be able to avoid just going home and sitting in front of the tv for hours with your post workout routine on your mind.


Exercise when you feel best

Some of us are just not morning people. We can barely drag ourselves out of bed at six in the morning let alone push ourselves through an entire workout. So, why would we not choose to workout at night? As a night owl, we perform better at night, and if we want to get the most out of our fitness routines, then we should obviously workout at night. Our energy levels are higher, and our bodies are more prepared for our fitness routines.


Release your stress

After a hectic and stressful day, it can feel good to skip the bar and hit the gym. Hitting the heavy bag at 9round can be the perfect way to alleviate that stress stored up from a hectic day at the office. A fitness routine can help many of us de-stress and relax. It is the perfect way to get rid of all of our daily pent up frustrations.

The only bad workout is the one that didn’t happen, so just pick the best time for YOU!
