SLEEP – July 6, 2022

As gym owners and coaches we all LOVE exercise! The benefits are too many to list here.

But what if I told you that exercise could be detrimental to your sleep duration and quality of sleep? Research has shown that vigorous exercise performed 2-3 hours before planned bedtime can actually delay sleep initiation and the time it takes to achieve deep sleep and REM sleep. I’m not saying you need to cancel your evening classes!

Just like we would with alcohol and caffeine, it may be worth discussing habit changes around exercise timing IF you work out in later groups and also experience poor sleep. Use a notebook to track your hours of sleep – and pay attention to how exercise later in the evening affects them.
