  • Calliet shared some advice with INSIDER for people who struggle to find time to work out but also hate getting out of bed in the morning.
  • "If you're not prepared, you won't do it."

When an entire day of work is looming before you, it's easy to justify hitting the snooze button instead of putting on sneakers. But according to celebrity trainer Corey Calliet, there are no valid excuses for skipping the gym. 

"There's time and you can do it. I don't care what nobody says or what they do," Calliet told INSIDER. "I travel, I work, I do a whole lot of things but I still make sure I get that time in. I see everyday people do it."

Calliet, who worked for the postal service before becoming a full-time trainer, admitted that becoming a early gym-goer is hard. He told INSIDER that he used to "sleepwalk" out of bed when he started exercising before work. 

Now a trainer on Khloe Kardashian's transformation show "Revenge Body," Calliet has plenty of tips for people who want to get started with a morning workout routine.

"First of all, the night before you go to bed, be prepared," Calliet told INSIDER. "Have your workout clothes laid out. Have your breakfast made. If you're not prepared, you won't do it. You're going to find any excuse so that you won't make it to the gym."

If you don't have a gym membership or can't make the trip before work, the celebrity trainer recommended working out at home — noting that exercise can be effective anywhere if you put in the effort.

"It just takes about 30 minutes to an hour to get a good workout in," he said. 

For those mornings when it's a challenge to even pick your head off the pillow, the first things you hear and see can make a big difference, according to the celebrity trainer.

"When you set your alarm clock, don't set it on some regular old alarm like a chicken sound or a clock ringing," Calliet told INSIDER. "Put on some music that's going to get you up. Write something in the bathroom that's going to motivate you. If you have to wake up and splash water in your face at the side of your bed, do that."

Calliet admitted that some of this might sound unappealing, but emphasized that it's worth it in the end. In fact, fellow fitness gurus often tout the varied health benefits of exercising in the morning. 

Andrea Orbeck, who has trained Victoria's Secret models and Kardashians alike, previously told INSIDER that early workouts promote mental focus, yield better physical results, and encourage you to stick to your fitness goals.

"Someone who works out early is probably less likely to grab a cinnamon bun right afterwards on the way to work," Orbeck told INSIDER.

Indeed, researchers from Brigham Young University found that morning exercise makes food seem less appealing and inspires you to remain active the entire day. Additionally, a recent study published in Health Psychology found that the waking up early and heading to the gym makes you more likely to exercise regularly throughout your life. 

"Do whatever you can to make yourself get up. Because if you can do that, you can change your life," Calliet said. "You can change your attitude, your mental health, and the rest of the day will be perfect."
