This can be taken even more literally than you think. Or perhaps less. I guess it all depends on how literally you took it, doesn't it?
Anyway, if your friend from the office tells you all about how they do a workout before work and it sets them up for the day, you may start to think that this is the path for you. Perhaps but perhaps not. If your body doesn't respond to getting up early and getting it done then do it in the evenings. Either way, just do it (do I have to pay Nike money for using that last sentence?).
