I don't know your current fitness level, but if you're not exercising now, I'd start with walking every night, six nights a week. When that becomes easy, try HIIT, alternating walking and jogging or walking and stairs. After a few weeks, I'd do the HIIT for 30 minutes and then add some weight training, alternating between upper body and lower body. And I'd also include some core training every night.

For some people doing aerobics so close to bed keeps them from falling asleep. I'm one of those people. I always reserve my weight training for the afternoon or evenings.

I'm the same way. I usually work out after work, but then I can't fall asleep. I wish I had 'recess' during work where I could go workout for an hour... I really think that should be required for all jobs!
