Your wake-up call
FASTED MORNING
PERSONAL TRAINING

Exercising on an empty stomach has been shown to be especially good for fat-loss, and some studies have found that people who regularly train this way become better, over time, at burning fat at higher levels of intensity. Get your workout done before your body's awake enough to know what's going on.
