No: Many people exercise early in the morning. There is no harm to it.

Good warm-up: Exercising early in the morning is preferred for many people because of their time schedule. It is fine as long as you are alert and have a proper warm-up. A proper warm-up means beginning your exercises slowly and at a lesser intensity than you would 5-10 minutes later in the workout. Doing cardio (walk, bike, elliptical, slow jog) for 5-10 minutes before you get deeper into your workout is wise.
