Motivation in the morning
 
What motivates you in the morning to get out of bed and go to the gym? I used to have issues with not wanting to get out of bed, wanting to sleep in a bit longer. But I have found that if I have all my stuff ready and see it when I hop out of bed, I get my butt to the gym because I have taken the time to get it ready. I also set my alarm on the other side of the room so I have to get up to shut it off, and when I do, my gym bag is there waiting for me.

I make sure to go to bed early enough that when I get up I have somewhere between 6 and 8 hours of sleep and even if I do not feel motivated that day I still go. Better to have a "meh" training session than no training session.

My motivation to go train in the morning comes from not having time to go any other time haha.

The early morning is my only window to train, so if I miss it, it's a big deal. My motivation comes from seeing how far I've come via my training.

I am a morning person so I do not have issues with getting out of bed to work out. I prefer to get up early.

I hate getting up early. But if I do not, then I have to work out later in the evening and that means less time with the family. So for me, if I get up early it is a win win situation for me.

This is how I feel as well. If I can not train first thing in the morning, I will have to wait until the next day. And when I see results, I am motivated to do way more.

I'm not a morning lifter, but when I'm tempted to skip, I just show up and do that first warm-up set...after that, it's easy (and often a really good WO).

Time is extremely precious for me. Knowing I won't really have another chance during the day without sacrificing something I need to do makes me get up and go. Having a deadline helps my workouts. Also, trying to lift after work SUCKS. Cooking is a workout of its own.

I agree. I love to cook but hate the mess that it makes. Sometimes I have to work out after work and it stinks.
