Reason #5: Energy Levels Are Up
Studies have shown throughout the years for both men and women that hitting the gym, especially in the morning, will improve energy levels throughout the day.

Energy levels are crucial because the higher up that they are, the better you will be able to get through the day, but it could be disastrous throughout the day if they dip too low, so hit the gym to keep them up.
