Morning exercisers: What time does your alarm go off?

Options
The title pretty much speaks for itself.

What time does your alarm go off when you haul yourself out of bed and head to the gym/out for a run/switch on the exercise DVD player, etc?

Also, what time do you go to bed?

I get up around 6.15am and usually do a good hour of running then do stretching for 10 minutes or so when I get back. I work from home so I don't have to commute to work.

On weekends, I usually get up around 7.30am and head out.

I have an alarm that goes off at 9.30pm each night that tells me to get ready for bed. This helps me get a decent sleep so I can maintain my exercise routine.

How about you?

    On gym/lifting days I my alarm goes off at 5.00 to get to the gym when it opens at 6.

    On non gym/lifting days I just get up at 6.30 and weekends whenever I feel like it (usually 7-8am)

    No alarm. Usually up by 3:30-4 & at the gym by 5:30 for Spin or 5:45 for Body Pump. I just started a C25K training last week so I'm going to shoot for making it to the gym by 5am to hit the TM first.

    On weekdays, my alarm goes off at 4:30am if I'm going to the gym. I leave my house by 4:45 and am at the gym by 5am. I have about an hour and fifteen minutes to spend there before I have to get home to get ready for work. On weekends, I'm normally awake by 7:00am anyway (and my gym doesn't open til 7 on weekends) so I usually get there before 8am.

    Unless your route to work from the gym passes your house, I'd get ready at the gym.
    I purposely picked a gym that was pretty much on the way to work so id go before work or if I wasnt feeling 100% that AM, go on my way home.

    I get up about 430am. Im there a little after 5am.
    Get ready there and then off to work!

    Alarm = 4:30 am every day. I usually wake up a few minutes before that. I set an alarm for 8 pm to remind me to go to bed. Let's get going!

    If I go length swimming I'm up 6am and walk to the pool, finish about 8:15 and get a lift there to work. Not a great morning person for exercise but I might get up at 6am for some yoga or a workout DVD. I'm usually in bed by 10:30

    On weekdays the alarm goes off at 5:45am for either a run outside or an exercise DVD at home. On weekends it varies. I usually have rest day on Saturday and do longer runs on Sundays- out the door by 10 or 11am.
    During the week I'm in bed by 10.

    No alarm -- up by 4am (most) everyday (can sleep till 4:30 on Sundays). Stuck on the elliptical right now (winter) - my 45 mins need to be done by 6:15 or so (7 on Sundays). Anxiously waiting for clear roads so I can resuming racewalking/running - workouts become longer then but...............wakeup time stays about the same.
