5 Reasons to Workout in the Morning

1) Jump start your metabolism

Exercising early in the morning "jump starts" your metabolism, keeping it elevated for hours, sometimes for up to 24 hours! As a result, you’ll be burning more calories all day long—just because you exercised in the morning. Via Spark People 

2) Boost your mood

It boosts your mood: A long stream of research has indicated that exercise boosts endorphins and other feel-good hormones in your body, and it may be enough to push you through the morning slump and keep you smiling all day.  Via Glamour 

3) Start the day off right

Set a heathly tone for the day. You usually will feel so good that you want to refuel with good food. Via Women's Health Magazine 

4)  Be consistent

A consistent work out. A big barrier to getting enough exercise is often the fact that it’s hard to fit it into a daily schedule. It’s extra hard if you have kids, work unpredictable hours, or have a somewhat spontaneous social life. If you commit to working out in the morning, however, you’re way less likely to have the excuse of things just popping up. Plus, you won’t be exhausted from a rough day at the office. In fact, people who work out in the morning have shown to stick to their exercise plans better than people who plan to exercise after work. Via Daily Health Post

5) Long-term results

Better long-term results. Research shows that those who exercise in the morning are more consistent exercisers than those who exercise later in the day. Our bodies love routine. If you force yourself to get up when your alarm goes off, your body will thank you and pay you back by feeling rested and ready for the day. Via US News
