If you exercise in the morning, does it wake you up?
If you exercise in the evening, does it make it harder or easier for you to sleep?

I exercise in the morning and I love how it kickstarts my day. I haven't done anything too intense in the evenings but I do remember in the past it would keep me up if I did it after 8pm.

I normally exercise at night, and it doesn't keep me from falling asleep. I do think it would be energizing to work out in the morning, but I can't drag myself out of bed earlier...when I'm working, I already have to be up by 4:30.

It energizes me in the morning, but it doesn't affect my sleep much at night.

nothing wakes me up in the morning except time LOL but I still do some workouts in the am....but if I do one at night I do find it help me sleep better just because I am so exhausted after the workout!

I don't exercise at either time so it's hard for me to say. Sometimes I do a morning workout with Angie but I can't say it wakes me up. I am usually awake by then. If I workout in the evening, which I've only done a handful of times, it does tend to keep me awake for a while.

If I work out in the mornings it energizes me, but I tend to work out mostly at night and since I am already drained from my day my work out doesn't affect my sleep.
