Waking up in the morning can be difficult for many, especially since those precious moments being one with your bed can be almost unbearable to give up. Building a morning routine is important to a healthy day, however, and one of the best things you can incorporate into your schedule is a morning workout.
Even as little as 30 minutes a day can do wonders for your health, but this is easier said than done. Between your personal lives and work deadlines, finding ways to excuse yourself from a few reps of jogging can be easy. Building such a habit, however, extends beyond just fleeting moments of feeling good—in the long-term, your overall health will benefit.
So before you hit that snooze button once again, consider the benefits a morning exercise regimen can bring to your life:
Benefit #1: You’ll effectively exercise self-discipline
The mere choice of waking up earlier is a self-discipline exercise in itself, which is already a bonus benefit. It will be difficult at first, especially since the snooze button is merely a tap away. Forming good habits is never smooth sailing, however, and in time, the process will get easier. Once your body recognizes the need to get up early, it will adjust accordingly.
This discipline not just improves your health, but spills over into other facets of your life. You’ll find yourself eating better, forming positive relationships, and above all, forming a more positive mindset.
Benefit #2: You’ll be enjoying better boosts of energy
While drinking a cup of coffee is always a welcome surge of energy, it isn’t a sustainable method. By incorporating morning workouts into your daily routine, however, you’ll find yourself better prepared for your day.
There will be a boost of energy you’ll enjoy greatly, especially since it does not lead to any after-effects. Such a healthy boost also motivates you to do better, thereby ensuring you remain as productive as possible.
Benefit #3: You’ll have better mood dispositions
Exercising is scientifically proven to induce serotonin and dopamine boosts, which makes you feel happier and more positive. Doing a morning workout allows you to sweat, and this little body process sends you into a state of euphoria—one that will last throughout the day.
The best part? It eliminates any stressors in your body, leaving you feeling happier. In time, the disposition could become permanent, especially when your body starts feeling lighter, brighter, and overall healthier.
The Bottom Line
There’s no other way to put it—making exercise a part of your morning routine allows you to enjoy a plethora of benefits, one in which alarm snoozing can never give. Getting into the habit can be difficult to do, however, especially when it does not fit your schedule.
Although mornings are the most ideal schedule for your workout, the important thing is to find the time to exercise daily. With the aforementioned tips, however, you may very well be able to figure something out—especially since the benefits are rewarding. Ready to say goodbye to snoozing?

Chad has been my personal trainer for over 10 years. He is very dedicated and resourceful as a trainer. I would highly recommend Chad. He has kept my body healthy through all these years and in my 50s. Chad is also very accommodating to working with your schedule. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
I love working out with Chad! I have been working out with him for the past year and a half and have had the best results compared with other trainers. Chad’s dedication to his clients, humor, warmth and expertise are a winning combination. I look forward to our sessions and always leave feeling stronger, more flexible and energetic. I highly recommend Chad.
I have been working with Chad (the trainer) for almost three years now and have gone through an amazing transformation! He bonds greatly with his clients and is a very qualified trainer. He tailors workouts to individual clients and has helped me perform better as an equestrian and achieve my physique goals. If you are looking for a great one-on-one trainer, I would highly recommend.
When I started going to the fit factor I went in thinking I had a pretty good knowledge of weight lifting and exercise without having much to improve. I was so wrong! Chad was incredible and really took the time to explain and show proper technique as well as a variety of different exercises that I had never done before. I now have much more confidence in my form and have a really great and well rounded routine. Additionally, Chad catered to my personal goals and really listened to what I wanted to accomplish. I cannot recommend The fit factor and Chad enough!
I have been weight lifting for over five years but have never had dedicated instruction from a trainer. Chad was able to notice where my form was failing and correct it immediately. He also guided me towards effective exercises so that I could keep achieving my goals and moving up. After a couple of months of working with him I was able to see some great results. Chad knows his stuff!
Chad has been great with not only the types of specialized workouts each session but also with checking in after the sessions. He has a real passion for seeing people make big health changes; which makes it fun. Would highly recommend!
I went to Chad looking to get back in shape and lose weight, which had crept up from working long hours. Chad was super patient and non-judgmental. We started at a level where I would see results but not get so sore or so disappointed at what I could not do it. He focused on what I could do if I pushed myself hard and taught me that step/skill building was an integral part of the process. We also talked about nutrition and self-care. As other reviews have mentioned, he cares about his clients beyond the appointment time, and wants them to make positive change to their lives that will stick. I lost 30+ pounds and I am in the best shape of my life. I have been able to maintain this for 2 years. He taught me how to create a sustainable workout plan. Even during the pandemic I was able to maintain my weight and my fitness level thanks for his frequent check-ins and the solid fitness base we created through his work and fitness mentorship. I highly recommend him!
I started with Chad in August 2020, my first semester of college was cancelled and i needed something active to do. At that point I was a small underweight kid looking to gain muscle and gain weight. I went to Chad 3 times a week until late January 2021. Those 5 months were great, I really enjoyed going to chad and it was the highlight of my week and something I would look forward to going to 3 times every week. Throughout this time Chad has perfected my form on workouts and had a great and unique workout for me everytime. I went in weighing 125 pounds at 5’10 and now I weigh 150 pounds after the five months. Not only did Chad give workouts but he also gave me a diet for me to follow so I could maximize my time with him. He really personalizes workouts for each person. Currently i’m in the best shape of my life and am super confident in my body. GO TO FIT-FACTOR!!
