We all want to look and feel our best, and a big part of taking care of ourselves comes from regular exercise.
But, between work, friends, household responsibilities, and shepherding the kids off to all their activities, it’s practically impossible to find time for yourself.
Luckily, Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club has a wide range of morning fitness classes available that work around your busy life, so you can break a sweat and have fun while doing it.
Let’s look at why morning classes might be a great fit for you.
Why Morning Fitness Classes?
Of course, there is no wrong time to get a workout in. However, there are a few reasons why a morning workout might be the best option.
It sets you up for success.
We’ve all heard that building strong habits can help you stay more focused and productive throughout the day. One of the best ways to create a new habit is to build off other established habits.
Our strongest routines tend to happen in the morning—we get up, we might make breakfast for the family, get the kids to school, and then start our day.
Whatever your mornings might look like, Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club has morning classes you can add in to build a fitness routine that sticks.
With classes starting as early as 6 a.m., you have the ability to get in a workout without having to sacrifice time with the kids in the school drop-off line or those precious hours with your partner before the busy commute.
Plus, starting your day with a workout is a great way to boost your mood and get those endorphins flowing!
Scientists think it may be optimal for your body.
There’s a ton of research in the fitness community around optimizing our fitness routines, including the optimal time for exercise.
Research has shown that working out in the morning can have a variety of benefits for the body, including:
- Improving your metabolism; morning exercise has shown increases in cellular oxygen consumption and breakdowns of fats and amino acids.
- Awarding you a better night’s sleep; exercise in the morning has been associated with increases in deep sleep.
- It’s also ideal if you have diabetes; morning exercise has shown to have a lower rate of exercise-induced hypoglycemia.
All these benefits can really support your overall health, helping you look and feel your best. And who doesn’t want that?
