Jimmy Chin’s morning ritual—how this extreme athlete and adventurer starts his day
Whether scaling the World Trade Center or climbing the Grand Teton, elite athlete, respected filmmaker and professional photographer Jimmy Chin begins every day with a solid routine.
As a 15-year veteran of the North Face Athlete Team, frequent National Geographic contributor and documentary filmmaker, Jimmy’s days are packed with travel, adventure and more than his fair share of risk. He has filmed many of the world's best climbers, snowboarders and skiers on their most challenging expeditions around the world, including his own with the award-winning documentary Meru, which took him seven years to complete. He has climbed Everest twice and was one of the first Americans alongside Kit and Rob DesLauriers to ski from its summit.
We love the fact that Jimmy takes HANAH ONE every day as part of his morning ritual and that he realizes the benefits while out on his adventures around the world. We caught up with him this winter in his home and are excited to share a glimpse into his morning ritual.
