Do you train morning or evening? Depends on your goal, says new study

Millions of Americans cut time out of their busy schedule to exercise daily. However, only 23% of adults aged 18+ meet the recommended guidelines for both aerobic and muscle-strengthening activity. The biggest obstacle for most people: Not having enough time. On the contrary, says a study from 2019 from CDC and Rand. The survey of more than 30,000 participants showed that Americans on average have more than five hours of free time a day.

Whether you’re considering starting an exercise program or a more experienced athlete, one of the biggest questions I hear is, “When is the best time to exercise?” Most people are quite regimental and protective when exercising. Choosing to exercise in the morning or evening is often a product of a work schedule or childcare responsibilities. Or just whether you are a “morning person” or a “night owl”.
