Not a morning person but need to fit in an early A.M. workout? Try my tips to get you up, out, and sweating before breakfast!



Have your gym bag ready: Packing up your gym bag the night before will allow you to get out of bed and simply pop on your sneakers, grab your bag, and head out to the gym. Rustling around in the dark at 5:30am is something no one looks forward to, especially if you are a someone who is not a workout-in-the-morning type person.

Go in with a Plan: Figuring out what you will be doing in the gym before you go will not only save you time, but it will make your workouts more efficient and worth the early morning wake up call. Looking for some bodyweight workouts? Check out my workouts and playlists!

Energize: I don’t know about you, but no matter what time I workout, I HAVE to have a little snack. I usually go for a banana and a few sips of coffee, but any snacks including a protein bar or a scoop of peanut butter will help you get rid of that sluggish feeling.

Get Your 8 Hours: Always try to get enough sleep, but especially try on the days you have to wake up earlier to workout. Getting enough rest will not only help you wakeup easier, but getting enough rest aids in weight loss as well. 

Have a Motivator: Still having trouble getting up and going? Set up a morning meet-up time with a friend on your designated workout days. Your friend will keep you accountable and why get up to cancel when you could get up to workout? If a friend doesn’t work, try having a reward for yourself. Promise yourself those new workout shorts or cool new kitchen gadget if you complete your workout goal!
