3 Tips to Optimize Health During Corona Quarantine

“We are not starving to death, for sure.”  – Jon Hipp

Jon Hipp (@jonhipp) and I first met in South Beach, Miami through a mutual friend.  We attended Tony Robbins’ Unleash the Power Within event and then skydived out of a plane to celebrate my birthday the day after.  Jon is a biohacker, purposeful model and healthy lifestyle designer.  He models for brands that are making the world a better place and healthier humans. 

He works with people to design their healthiest lives.

Here are some of the key topics and takeaways from our time together:


Keep phone on other side of room in airplane mode

Get room dark as possible – cover LED lights

Keep room cold – 60s fahrenheit – 18-20 celsius

Black out curtains

Sleep mask 

Foam ear plugs 


Intermittent fasting

Eat in compressed window of time, 1-2x/day

Jon fasts almost every day

Tea, apple cider vinegar, sparkling water – non caloric drinks

Break fast with nutrient dense food – white bread is the opposite of nutrient dense

Steak, spinach, avocado for breakfast

Salmon, sweet potato, broccoli for dinner

Snack on almonds and cashews

Grass fed whey protein 


Bodyweight workouts

High Intensity Exercise

One of Jon’s go to workouts: 5 burpees, 10 pushups, 15 air squats 

Go through cycle as many times as possible in 7 minutes
