Madrugar means the same as levantarse temprano?

I don't understand why in one sentence the lady says that she gets up early every morning (me levanto temprano) but in the next sentence she says "no me gusta madrugar".  Are you just showing us that there are two ways to say that she gets up early? Isn't this a bit much for beginner Spanish!?!?

Hola Lynne

We are offering two different words for "waking up early", yes. We do mention the words "temprano" and "madrugar" in the introduction so that the students can familiarize with some words they may have not seen/heard before. 

The exercises are planned for a certain level but there are some that are slightly more challenging which is something lots of students enjoy and benefit from in our opinion. Nevertheless, as I said, the tricky words are suggested in the introduction so they can look them up in advance.

I think that she doesn't like getting up early but she must get up early because she might have to go to work or prepare breakfast. So she said "me levanto temprano".
