Life is unpredictable. The best way to combat this is to build a consistent routine. My days are primarily based around creation, outdoor adventure, entrepreneurship, community development, recovery, and self-development.

When I’m not traveling, this is what life looks like in Denver, Colorado.

My (Typical) Daily Routine

6:45 am – 7am: Breakfast

Most days, I wake up around 6:45am (I don’t set an alarm). I rarely schedule anything before 8am.

Upon waking, I read for 15-30 minutes. I drink 20 ounces of cold water and brew a double espresso with my Rocket Espresso Appartamento Espresso machine, or I have 1½ scoops of Caffeine Army in hot water.

I make a smoothie using 2 handfuls of spinach, 2 Brazil nuts, half an avocado, half a banana, 1 cup of frozen blueberries, ginger powder, Human Improvement Vanilla Protein Powder (Discount Code: ERIC15), 2 cups of A2 Milk or Goat Milk and six to eight cubes of ice.

I also mix one scoop of Super Reds, one scoop of Organifi Pure, two scoops of Cowboy Colostrum (CODE: ERIC15), one scoop of Creatine, and one scoop of AG1 in water. I take NAD3, 6 bison liver capsules, and Shilajit and Sea Minerals [Code: Eric]. 

7am – 8am: Planning & Meetings

I write out my workout (I loosely follow HWPO for CrossFit training). I plan out the content I need to create for the day.

3–4 days / week, I meet someone for coffee — generally someone new. This might be a contact from social media, someone I was introduced to, or catching up with a like-minded person. I make a conscious effort to meet several new people every day. If I don’t have a coffee meeting, I work from 

8am — 9:30am: Content & Messages

I answer messages and post on social media.

9:30am – 11:30am: Workout #1

I workout 5-6 days / week — Thursday, I typically stay out of the gym.

Olympic Lifting / Gymnastics / Crossfit Metcons — I loosely follow HWPO for strength training + gymnastics.

12pm – 2:30pm: Lunch

  • 2-3 scrambled eggs, chicken sausage, a slice or two of canyon bakehouse gluten-free bread
  • 20 ounces of water
  • 8 ounces of coffee or an espresso

2:30pm – 4:30pm: Workout #2

Aerobic Conditioning — running, hiking, mountain biking, or bodyweight interval training — keeping my average heart rate around 130 beats per minute. 

I like to vary this.

  • 3–4 days of mountain biking. 
  • 2–3 days of hiking/trail running. 
  • 2 days of road running — on the pavement. 
  • Rock climbing occasionally — for mental toughness!

4:30pm – 6:30pm: Recovery & Community

6:30pm – 10pm: Dinner & Connection

Dinner at home with my girlfriend, and we often entertain, inviting friends over. 

A typical dinner consists of smoked chicken thighs or wings, grass-fed buffalo burgers or steak (we source our grass-fed/grass-finished meat from a family-owned regenerative ranch called Wild Idea Buffalo (discount code: ERIC20%), grilled zucchini, avocado, and potatoes or rice.

Along with 2–3 giant glasses of water w/ electrolytes

10pm: Bedtime snacks

Other snacks and long workout fuel

I rarely snack, but when I do, here’s what I gravitate towards.
