I make this a priority. No matter when I get up I am going to work out so everything else can wait. My health if number one on my list every morning.

We know not everyone is a morning person. (And even fewer of us are eager to wake up and hit the gym.) But getting up and moving can actually be an amazing way to start your day.

Sure, you may have heard the usual tips and tricks, but what hacks do people who consistently work out in the early a.m. use? We asked those who know best—a mix of people who train for a living, Greatist staffers, and you, our dear readers—to find out what gets them up and at ‘em at the crack of dawn.

I set three different alarms and give them motivational titles to get me moving.

On second thought, I'll teach you how to do for free, in the hopes that the world will be a happier and more awesome place. Or at least to decrease the chances that I might have to bear the brunt of your morning misery in the future.

Make it a part of your schedule. Before breakfast get in a few crunches or run on the treadmill. It will start your day off on the right track.

Again, the reverse is true -- though not for every one, at least for most of us -- not only does working out in the morning help us become more energetic, it can actually set a powerful series of events in motion to help you create more productive days, weeks, months, and years for yourself.

You must be very dedicated to get this done. I have found that people who can do this are more successful in life in general.

While the best time to exercise depends on your schedule and your body, the odds are in favor of morning workouts. Think about it: You won’t have to trudge to the gym after a long day of work, you may sleep better, and you’re more likely to actually get it done if you do it before other (sometimes more fun) options come up.

I personally prefer working out at night. Not a morning person.
