The Scientific Reason For Why You Can't Get Out of Bed in the Morning

June 08, 2015 1 min read

The reason behind why you have a such a love affair with your bed, the truth about your need for extra zzz's in the A.M. and why you keep hitting snooze despite your best efforts to open your eyes? It's all in your genes! Yes, research from the University of Leicester shows that a person's biological clock and it's functions are directly related to genetics. Your biological clock refers in this instance to a broad range of bodily functions (sleep patterns, etc), not just your reproductively time limit. The research suggests that the entire genetic make-up of someone who prefers being awake in the morning is completely different from one who enjoys being more nocturnal creatures. It comes down to genetic variations in DNA. Thus the structure of a typical 9 to 5 job isn't productive for nearly half of the population, because their DNA is composed differently. So now you know that it has nothing to do with laziness why you can't drag yourself out of the covers when the sun rises! Perhaps scientists can change the future of work schedules, and rule out 8 a.m. shifts based on DNA testing, wouldn't that be nice? And don't forget, just because you aren't a morning person, doesn't mean you can't fit in a killer workout! With over 80 hours of on demand workouts, SweatFlix℠ allows you to do your favorite workouts any time, or any place, you want! Start your free trial today? Let us know your thoughts! Are you can early riser or a night owl?

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

Free Shipping: We are thrilled to now offer free shipping at checkout! If you choose this option at checkout, your order will be delivered ground within 5-7 business days.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number.
