Morning vs Evening | Best Time of Day to Workout
This Is the Best Time of Day to Work Out, Based on Where You Live
When it comes to reserving a spot in your workout favorite class, you probably take your scheduling preferences pretty darn seriously. Depending on whether you prefer to sweat it out in a packed spin class or be the only one in your yoga studio, timing your workouts can really make or break a sweat sesh.
Wish you knew when your favorite spot was likely to be totally packed—or blissfully empty? Well, ClassPass recently pooled their massive mound of workout data to create a roadmap, breaking down the most popular times to work out by region. Here's when classes tend to get crazy-crowded:
West Coast:5:30 p.m.
In other words, if you'd rather not be packed in shoulder-to-shoulder at Barry's Bootcamp, you're better off switching to morning sessions if you live anywhere north of the Mason-Dixon Line. But if you thrive off of the energy of a crowded class, stick to those p.m. bookings (unless you live in, say, Atlanta.)

Of course, day of the week matters, too. The most popular day to work out across the country is Tuesday, so apparently we’re not the only ones who feel like getting to the gym feels a little too ambitious for a Monday.

Consider your workout scheduling woes a thing of the past.
