About 2 years ago I suddenly began to struggle bending to tie my shoe laces and being out of puff after playing with my toddlers. Of course it wasn’t that sudden – it was a few years of neglect that did it. Now I am out before dawn so I’m fit enough to run around with them both now and when they are older.

The joy of earthing myself – being in tune with nature and the natural elements in my environment – is what gets me up each morning. Wanting to run, move and feel the youthful energy that is ignited by a holistic approach to exercise and nutrition is optimum health for me.

Doing my sunrise run in Berowra gets me up in the morning, the most amazing run, in the middle of the bush with sound of the birds, the sunrise in the East & the Blue mountains in the distance in the West, dedicated to my sister who died of cancer.

Matt says:

I had a heart attack 12 years ago, aged 42, after playing football for 35 years, what gives? I have a healthy diet and exercise regularly. I still play touch footy aged 53. Finally a product that has all the good ingredients in it and not the fillers and artificial stuff. I am going to tell all my gym and workmates to get out of bed each morning and tuck into some 180 shakes. Go you good thing!

Pascale says:

Going to the gym. The accomplished feeling you get after a hard training session sets you up for the day.

Knowing that I feel 100 times better after exercising or running in the morning!! I need those endorphin’s first thing to make me feel great for the day!

Andrew Knight says:

Fear of losing form

I used to be unhealthy and spend everyday walking around sluggish and lethargic.
Knowing that waking up in the morning to a run or a 6am WOD will make me feel better for life…. consistently training makes me consistently better!

Colleen webster says:

My alarm clock at 4:30am to get out and running some speed, trail or long run with great company.

Michael says:

I get out of bed in the morning with the thought of aspiring to compete in the death race. I’m only new to obstacle course racing and want to be the best therefore I would look to 180 nutrition as the best to help me be the best.

Cassie says:

Feeling accomplished before most people are out of bed, makes me feel confident, positive & energized for the rest of day.

What gets me up – The thought that if I don’t get up someone else is and then they have the advantage… Now I just need the inov8 advantage…

Waking up before the sun and seeing the sun rise while going on my morning run

Lachie says:

Simply, my shoes just calling my name. They never lead me astray.

Rino Paluch says:

Knowing that I’m able to – some people don’t have the luxury of even being able to get out of bed due to sickness, disease or disability. I consider myself lucky and that’s what gets me up and running in the morning.

benny mulley says:

The harder I work today the better ill be tomorrow…I work hard to make the best of my past the worst of my future…my vigilance ensures this…

Paolo Ardiani says:

Get up and run! Is my way to go around this world, I run every where any time.. I don’t own a car, motorbike or a push bike.
My motto:
Legs are taking you around, stronger they are, far you go!

Steve Corke says:

At 0530 hrs every morning 2 cats come thundering down the hallway and virtually push me out of bed. I think it is only because they want the bed for the day.

Being honest, going for another run through my mini obstacle course (local school + stairs) in my new Innov8’s waiting for the next race and putting them through their paces, race style 😉

Sonya says:

I love having my morning coffee and cooked breakfast with my husband before the kids get up. Having my 180 fruit smoothie before bed is currently keeping morning sickness at bay so cheers guys. Love your stuff!

Kate says:

The sound of my kids waking in the morning is enough to get me up and out the door of a morning. Besides wanting to set a good example for them, my morning exercise is the only ‘me’ time I get all day. And it can also be the difference between a happy mummy and a grouchy mummy.

Mike Bromley says:

staying healthy and being the best roll model I can be too my two boys gets me going every morning.

To be better than yesterday.

Waking up 10 minutes before my alarm so it doesn’t wake my beautiful, sleeping wife……

This beautiful country of ours, my gorgeous kids, my wonderful husband, and always the memory of my amazing mum..who last words of advice were to ‘enjoy my life, every moment, in the moment’. I certainly feel this on those tough mountain trail passion for trails just grows!!

Mali McKie says:

Looking back on my 48 kg weight loss and knowing that it was this very moment every morning when I chose to get up and train instead of stay in bed that got me to where I am today

Sputnik says:

I don’t get up and run because of how i feel BEFORE i run, but because through experience, i have faith that i know how much better i’ll feel after it. Sets up my day nicely.

(And also because i know damn well that if it doesn’t get done in the morning it may not get done. And that is not acceptable.)

Shane says:

the 2 kids getting up at 5:30 every morning gets me up and going

Anna says:

Those few moments of peace with a cup of coffee while the world wakes around me, before my children are up and the tempo of the day steadily increases…

the thought of a nice early morning run in the dark with no one else around, sets me up for a great day even if its a work day.

The challenges and opportunities presented with each new day.. Regardless of what happened yesterday, Morning gives you a chance to become something better than you were

My determination to beat my personal best from the previous workout session; in running and core training. Everyday, I challenge myself knowing that the rewards for my efforts will be AMAZING to say the least!

Knowing that today is a new day – to start over – to be a better version of me.

What gets me up? The sun creeping through my blinds and my alarm clock gently waking me as it gets louder… ready to tackle the day (unless it’s the weekend and I don’t have the alarm set) 😛

Harrison says:

Wanting to meet Chad Mackay and James Newbury at regionals. That’s what gets me out of bed! Although I better get off this computer and start training 😉

Missus!! Lol =)

To be better than I was yesterday

Because I never want to look like I used to look…

Because I love what I do…keeps me…

Not knowing what each day will bring makes me excited to get up and get started. There is always something new to learn, experience or discover.

Johnathan says:

I am out of bed for two very enthusiastic small dogs who demand a morning walk, and show me how to love life.

Peta Van Luyn says:

What gets me up & running in the morning is the fact that I am able to do so… I never take mobility for granted, as there are so many people who would wish to be able to physically get out of bed, put on their runners and get out amongst the day. I’m so grateful to be able to do this, and I will keep running until no longer able to do so! For me, it’s a choice… for others, it’s a wish.

Denise Johnson says:

The promise of a beautiful sunrise over the Central Australian desert. The rich hues of orange and pink are breathtaking as the sun rises over the rocks and scrub. It’s an ehhilerating start to the day and the beauty takes my mind off any protesting from my legs.

Your not living life, unless you love life, training is my life:)

I don’t run in the morning. Too tired. But if I had new shoes… hmmm.

My dogs. I take them for a run every morning cause they’re energetic fellows and they need the exercise. They keep me totally responsible and no matter what – I’m getting up to give them their run, since they make me so happy.

Knowing that today im a stronger and fitter person than yesterday gets me up and running in the mornings.
