There is nothing quite like the feeling of physical well-being that comes from morning exercise. Several high-profile CEO types and corporate high flyers put much of their success to regular morning exercise and how it sets them up and makes them feel fantastic for the rest of the day. If you are working in the Sydney CBD and you are looking to incorporate CrossFit into your working day, you will know the challenge of juggling a career, being a devoted family contributor and being physically fit all at the same time.
If you can manage it, the early morning is a great time to train. It involves the trial of getting out of bed early, but from there it is all pretty positive. If you catch public transport, you will find that commute much more pleasant at 6:00 am than the Sardine experience at 8:00 am. There are few better ways to start the working day than with a vigorous CrossFit session. There are fewer participants in the early morning than in any other session, so you will generally get much better value out of equipment and the personal attention that your instructor can give you. Also, most of the people you train with will be more dedicated and regular with their attendance making the community training experience all the more valuable
Feel Great for The Rest Of The Day
The best thing about starting your morning with CrossFit training is the feeling of accomplishment before you even start work. Throughout the day your body will remind you of the morning session and the gains that were achieved with those little muscle tingling highs that are experienced when you start the day with exercise. You will most definitely have more energy and you will feel great for the whole day.
Morning Exercise Schedules Are The Easiest To Keep
Finding a productive routine and having some sort of social life in Sydney is difficult. Friends will want to meet up out of the blue. Colleagues and customers may need to organise meetings at short notices, schools will have events that you may want to attend and the list goes on. It is unlikely that any impromptu meeting that you will not want to miss will be scheduled for 7:00 am. Reserving your CrossFit training time between 6:00 am and 8:00 am means it is unlikely to be disrupted by anything else. This time slot is the easiest for you to make your own.
Once you have your morning CrossFit routine established, you will undoubtedly get better and more efficient sleep. This will contribute to you feeling a lot better as you wake up in the morning and will help you feel rested with lots of energy during the day. It will also contribute to you feeling like you want to train harder in the mornings.
When you are CrossFit training, you probably won’t be thinking of anything work related. You most likely will be thinking of your current physical challenge (that extra pull up) and you will have forgotten about deadlines and workload for that 1 hour that you are flogging your body. Being able to use CrossFit to de-stress in the morning is a great way to start the day and you will (probably) feel less stressed for the rest of your day.
Attack the Day
If you can get your morning CrossFit training schedule organised properly, you will probably also arrive at work before you would normally so you can get half a day’s worth of work done before the rest of your colleagues start to arrive. You will be more productive and consequently more empowered to make better work decisions throughout the rest of the day. You will also be much better placed to deal with any unplanned work related incidents that would otherwise cause you more stress.
