I can’t decide if I’m a morning person. Yes, I wake up before the sun rises 4/5 weekday mornings and immediately head to the gym to lead cycling classes, so it sure sounds like I’m a morning person.

1. Plan the Night Before:
I don’t leave any details for the morning. The night before a morning workout, I set my full outfit on the couch, pack my bag if I’m going to be heading straight from the gym to the office, and have my coffee maker set to grind. If anything is left to be done in the morning, there’s a good chance it won’t happen.
