I always work out at night.... it keeps me from being bored and snacking. I always have a banana or choc milk after workout to replenish muscles, then go to bed. It seems to work fine for me. I have been doing it for 4 months, and lost close to 70 lbs, and I feel great ! Thats MY opinion. Good luck.

the only problem is that workouts make you release endorphins which is a good thing but might make falling asleep difficult

Any exercise is better than no exercise. If your optimal time to exercise is late at night, knock yourself out. Smile I say go.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

I agree that I always work out at night! I just make sure to eat something and drink water or milk before I go to bed to give my muscles something to replenish them! I found peanut butter toast and a glass of chocolate milk help me fall asleep after the high of my workout too!

oh! it's okay. workout during night is still fine. in fact, many people do that. i just think that after you do workout, give yourself time to relax, don't sleep immediately.. and also, pair it with proper diet in proper time. i think you should know the right foods that works for you. Source:

I think so long as you have an hour before you go to bed after exercise you should be ok to sleep. You do what you haveto do

You can exercise at any time of day. There is no best time. Some people find it energizes them in the morning so they do it then, while others like me find it exhausiting, so others do at night before bed time.

I have insomnia, and I discovered after I started exercising at night, that I sleep better and I haven't had a sleepless night but a handful of times.

I have to agree with gardengranny, the Doc should be the one telling you if you are ok to continue or stop taking a medication. You could end up doing more harm than good.
