Nine to five days are killers if you want to exercise. I didn't know it at the time, but I was living the life of luxury when I used to be able to saunter into the gym at 2p and stay for as long as I'd like. The solution now? Get up early and get after it, or find an awesome night-owl fitness class. Here's the best spots in the Hudson Valley that offer early-morning or late-night workout options.

EARLY

Orange Theory classes are popular across the nation. There may be another one closer to you, but my local stop would be in Newburgh, NY. They have 5am options Monday and Wednesday-Friday (not Tuesday) and 6:15am options Monday-Friday. Check them out here.

Fit Social - Poughkeepsie, NY

Another group option, Fit Social has 5:15am classes Monday-Thursday
