It’s always worth dedicating time to making the most of a gym in your hotel though, so if you’re not sure when to fit your workout in, consider the following:
Top 3 Best Times to go to the Gym
Working out against the grain
Going to the gym at an unusual time can give you the freedom to get the most out of your workout, with less competition for the equipment and more floor space to work with. In high-quality hotels though, lack of equipment is rarely a problem, so we advise to listen to your body and consider the type of exercise you’re planning instead.
Some fitness experts have suggested that your time decision should depend on the activity and strenuousness of your workout.
It has been argued that highly energetic exercise is best done in the afternoon, since muscles are warmer at this time of day. Not only does this minimise the time needed to warm up through stretching, but it also it means that the body has the energy to perform to its utmost.
Nonetheless, nobody should be deterred from early starts if they prefer them. If the desire is to lose weight instead of building muscle, an early morning workout can be ideal. A stomach with little in it can mean that fat reserves are tackled right away.
Indeed, research has indicated that the fitness regimes of people who start their exercise first thing in the morning are more likely to be sustained than those regimes based on afternoon or evening activity
Above all though, exercise is best performed when you feel at your physical peak. Whether that’s morning, afternoon or evening, there’s never a bad time for a workout in a top-notch gym. Check out the gyms at Hallmark Hotels
