Morning workouts come with a long list of benefits, but many people aren’t in the mood to hit the gym right after waking up. If you’re one of them, here’s a couple of tricks that will help you get motivated for your morning sweat session.
Good Night’s Sleep
It’s natural to feel too tired to hit the gym when you’re not well-rested. Make sure to get a good night’s sleep a night before and consider moving your phone out of your arm’s reach so you have to get up to turn the alarm off.
Prepare everything you need the night before so you wouldn’t use not being ready as an excuse to bail on your workout. Pick the clothes you’re going to wear, pack your gym bag, and prep your breakfast for the next morning just in case.
Having a workout buddy is also a good way to stop bailing on your morning workouts. They’ll help keep you accountable, and you’ll feel bad about skipping your training because this will also mean you’re letting them down.
