If your day starts early in the morning, an evening workout might be the best option.
It is usually believed that exercising in the morning is the most beneficial. But just as a morning workout routine has its perks, there are also significant benefits of exercising in the evening: it might be surprising, but our performance level is better in the evening due to our muscles having already been flexed and warmed up throughout the day.
Moreover, working out after work can also help lower the stress accumulated during the day, get a clearer mind and enhance sleep quality. To sum up it can help make you feel fabulous INside-OUT, and that’s our favourite mojo at Kalon!
Because being consistent can be challenging after a busy day, we gathered our team’s best tips to help you optimise your evening fitness routine & stay motivated:

Our co-founder Sophie selected her favourite classes from the Kalon app for an evening workout. If you are going for a more cardio class, we suggest to finish your class at least 1h before going to sleep to have time to cool down and recover.
