7 Super Simple Tips To Get Motivated for a Morning Workout

morning workout motivation

Let’s face it - most of us deal with the occasional lazy, zero-motivation morning.

We all know the feeling - we wake up knowing that we have a bunch of stuff that needs to get done, but still we can’t convince ourselves to do any of it. 

Forget the snooze button! It’s time to wake up and get your sweat on! According to multiple studies, morning workouts can lead to eating better, feeling more awake, and having an overall healthier day. But let’s face it - working out isn’t always the easiest task to take on, especially when you have to peel your eyes open and be up before the sun. So, how do you change that? There are some painless ways to trick yourself into making an AM routine easier. Let’s check them below:

1. Move your alarm clock

Instead of sleeping with the alarm next to your bed, move it to the other side of the room. By doing this you will have to get up and get out of bed to shut it off. Once you get up, it’s much easier to stretch, get your workout clothes on, and head out the door for a brisk walk around the neighborhood or to the gym for a morning workout routine. If you use an alarm that plays music, set it to a song from your workout playlist to help get you in the mood for exercise. 

2. Have a set goal

Every Sunday night, create your workout schedule for the coming week. Tell yourself, for example, “This week, I’m getting up at 6 a.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and running three miles before work.” Schedule your morning workout just as you would an appointment. You’re more likely to follow your morning workout routine if you write it down. If you don’t make it, write a note in your calendar to explain why. Later, you can analyze your exercise excuses and look for ways to overcome them.

3. Prep the Night before

To follow through on a morning workout routine, it helps to lay out your exercise clothes and equipment the night before. That way you don’t waste any time getting dressed and ready for your workout. One possible disadvantage of exercise in the morning is that your time may be limited — overcome this limitation by having a set routine and not wasting time looking for your sneakers or your weights.

4. Follow your favorite playlists for working out on Spotify (or any other service you are using)

“Music is a good motivator in the morning,”. “If you have a great playlist, it can be enough to get you out of bed in the morning. Having workout music works for me.” Research has shown that listening to music when you exercise can produce positive thoughts and help offset fatigue. Using a faster tempo to pump you up first thing in the morning and switching to a slower tempo toward the end of your workout routine.

5. Look forward to a better breakfast 

You may want to eat something quick, like a banana or a handful of almonds, to give you a boost of energy before your workout routine. Then after you cool down, have your real breakfast — and make it special as a reward for your efforts. But don’t sabotage your exercise efforts by eating a high-fat muffin or fried eggs and bacon. If you promise yourself a healthy, satisfying breakfast, such as eggs with veggies or oatmeal with fruit and nuts, when you get back, that will motivate you as well.

6. Try something different 

Instead of sticking to the same routine each day, set up something new to do a few times a week. You can start looking forward to trying out these new workouts - and maybe even find what fits you best and that you can't wait to wake up and do! (resistance bands)

7. Reward yourself 

If you've been consistently waking up each morning and reaching the goals you've set for yourself, you deserve a reward for all the hard work! Buy a new workout top or tickets to a band you've been anxious to go see. And if you are eating healthier too - we think you will be! - then make sure you follow these cheat meal tips!
