An Alarm Clock That Motivates You to Work Out?

I'm a fan of early morning workouts; they wake up the body and the mind. I always have way more energy the rest of the day, and feel good knowing I don't have to try and squeeze a workout in later. The problem is, motivating in the morning is not the easiest, and most of the time when my alarm clock goes off, I want to throw it out the window and sleep for another hour. That's where My Workout Wake Up Call Alarm Clock ($40) might come in handy.

Forget about waking up to Madonna blaring or the daily weather report. This clock wakes you up with motivational messages from a personal trainer. To hear an example of the message keep reading.

As corny and annoying as this message is, it could be just the thing to get you out of bed and into your sports bra. It's definitely not as demanding as the Shape Up! dumbbell-shaped clock, but would it be effective? Tell me what you think in the comments section below.

I can record messages on my cell phone to use as alarms, so if I really think I'll need some extra motivation in the morning, I just do that.

Not only would it be annoying, but you fail to mention that it only comes with 30 messages and you're supposed to pay $15 to reload it each month. Wouldn't it be easier to program your cell phone to wake you with a motivational recording?

I am consistently wake up before my alarm clock. But I would like to have one that record my message for my husband and my kids. :)

I showed this to my husband and he replied, "That clock would be smashed to bits in about 5 seconds". Haha! At least one of us is a morning person...

I think you should be able to chose different voices and characters. I agree with Retro23 that it sounds very kindergarten teacherish, which does not work for me but if there was one that yelled at me boot camp style or told me I was getting fat just laying there, it might work!

.....highly annoying. i fear my boyfriend would chuck it out the window. though having a trainer motivate you out of bed sounds good. maybe i could hunt down my old cycle instructor and have him record several messages to get my butt out of bed for class! LOL. That'd be great. I can hear Dave yelling at me now. . .

Maybe if they didn't have a kindergarten teacher record the wake-up message....

Obnoxious stuff like this would probably have the opposite effect on me...I'd just want to smack the stupid thing and go back to sleep.

I am glad I have to be at work so early so I have to workout in the late afternoon and don't have to worry about waking up to crap like this because this is super annoying!
