The filming of “Free Solo” provided extreme challenges for Jimmy and the production team – Jimmy not only had to fix ropes and cameras while climbing and rappelling alongside Alex throughout the process, but also deftly document the expedition while not distracting the climber as he scaled the nearly 3,000-foot granite face.
Jimmy has credited HANAH products for supporting his vitality, focus and immunity throughout the three-year filming and production process. Jimmy additionally shared HANAH products with the production team over the course of the filming process, ensuring the crew was operating with maximum focus and drive.
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.
We caught up with him this winter in his home and are excited to share a glimpse into his morning ritual.
“I got hooked on taking the combo of HANAH ONE, Ashwagandha and Turmeric during the filming of 'Free Solo.' This trio noticeably enhanced my focus and energy levels and really bolstered my immune system.”
Check out these two recipes created by Jimmy Chin. The HANAH coffee recipe goes beyond what most “Bulletproof” concoctions are brewing up with the addition of HANAH Vechur Ghee, shroom coffee mix, cacao, and a heaping tablespoon of our HANAH ONE herbal blend. The smoothie recipe contains the “super secret sauce” that fuels him on long days.

“HANAH ONE is the single product I take every day whether for a long day in the office or on a big mountain day… I feel the results; improved focus, energy, stamina and recovery. Not to mention I haven’t been sick once in the last two years, which is a small miracle given my work and travel schedule.” Jimmy Chin
