Do You Work Out at the Same Time Every Day?

Do You Always Work Out at the Same Time of Day?

My workout schedule is on the fritz. I'm pretty much a night person, and same goes for working out. I almost always go to my climbing gym at night, hang there (literally!) for a few hours, and have dinner around 9:30. But my workout partner is working late for the next few weeks, which leaves me stranded. (My gym is only accessible by car, and I don't have one.)

To remedy the problem, we've been trying to go to the gym before work — it's not exactly panning out. I'm not really a morning person and I can't seem to wake up enough to get the kind of workout I want. I know that if I stick with it, I'll come around, but since my climbing partner's schedule is back to normal in two weeks, I'm opting out. Instead, I signed up for a temporary membership and I'm doing midday workouts at the gym by my work. I guess when it comes to working out, I am a creature of habit. How about you — are you chained to a schedule or do you play it loose?

I do two-a-days about 3 times a week, cardio during my lunch hour at around 1:30, then weights around 7 (I get off work pretty late.). Then my weekends, I do boot camp on Saturday and run in the park on Sunday morning. I'm such a creature of habit...

OP, I used to work out past 9:30 so I totally understand.

Depends on the day for me. It's honestly whenever I can fit it in, and when I feel like it.

I work out first thing in the morning. Sometimes for me that is 3am and other times it's more like 9am. Depends on when I have to work.

I try to work out in the mornings. I like to get it over with so that the rest of my day is free.

I used to ONLY work out in the mornings, but i now have a gym in my apartment building, so it's not the end of the world for me to work out at night. I acutally sometimes feel like it's a treat because i don't have to rush at all, and afterwards i feel showered and clean and ready for bed!

Working out for hours with dinner at 9:30?? I would die! haha. I only workout for a half hour around 6pm usually. I'd like to workout in the morning but I am definitely not a morning person at all haha

It totally depends on if I'm working that day and what else I have going on. I will work out either around 10 am, 2 pm, or 5 pm.
Yes, for the most part. I run in the morning before work. But if I my schedule changes or it rains or I plan on swimming then I will do it after work.
