How do people do it? How do people find the motivation to wake up THAT early to work out?

Let’s start with few tips NOT to snooze your alarm:

If you really think about it, hitting the snooze button in the morning doesn’t even make sense. It’s like saying “I hate getting up in the morning, so I do it over, and over, and over again.

Prepare your workout clothes the night before and put them somewhere close by so you don’t have to think and look for them with your eyes half open in the morning – which could seem like an overwhelming task and put you right back to bed.

Set up your alarm and put your phone FAR FAR FAR away from you so you’ll have to get up anyway to snooze it, and once you’re up you might as well just keep going!

Try and go to bed 15m earlier than you usually do, so you’ll feel – at least mentally – less tired and less anxious about waking up earlier than usual.

Visualize the feeling you get after a Motion workout class, whether it’s an evening class or a morning class, yes you know what we’re talking about, because THAT feeling is worth the early wake up itself.

Consistency is key to create a new habit. Give yourself and your body time to adjust and each wake up will seem easier than the previous.

The after coffee. Yes, you read it right, grab your coffee after every 7AM class, on us!

There is something truly magical about an early morning class.

The light, 
The atmosphere when the rest of the city is still asleep, 
That feeling of achievement and pride once you’re done,
The positive mindset you’re left with for the rest of the day. 

We promise you, when you start your day like this, on such a high positive note, you will feel invincible, powerful, and ready to tackle any challenge life throws your way.

So, go ahead, give it a try.

When you wake up each day with passion and purpose, you join the small percentage of high achievers who are living their dreams. Most importantly, you will be happy. By simply changing your approach to waking up in the morning, you will literally change everything.

And because, at Motion, we want nothing but see you succeed,
every wake up is celebrated and rewarded.
