Why Spinning Class Is the Best Way to Start the Day

Get Fit For 2010: Favorite Workout

This week's challenge for the Get Fit For 2010 giveaway is to share a workout that works for you. Here's why FitSugar reader acfreema adores morning workouts.

Spinning class is the BEST possible way for me to get my week started. The Monday morning teacher is super tough. I tackle sprints, hills, intervals, standing, sitting, climbing and sweat a ton all before 7 a.m. It makes me feel like anything else I'll encounter during the day will be a piece of cake. After the class, I have to take lots of time to s-t-r-e-t-c-h or I'll be hobbling up the stairs later.

Once it warms up, I change spinning up for nice long sunrise runs. There's a bike trail near my house, and as soon as it's not dark out anymore in the morning I'll be able to head out with a running mix on my iPod. I see the same cute elderly couple walking their dog, a few other runners that I'm on "waving" terms with, and for a special treat I stop at Starbucks for a nice iced latte for my cool-down walk.

For me, heaven = early morning exercise.

I'd love to hear about more readers' workouts, so join our Get Fit For 2010 community group and write a blog post about your favorite workouts.
