It is not often that you find someone who has been incredibly successful in the finance industry and also has a healthy outlook on living a balanced lifestyle. Jeffry Schneider breaks the mold and shows us that it is possible to be passionate about your career and physically fit at the same time. While Schneider is most widely known for his ability to raise capital quickly and manage one of the most cutting-edge and promising investment firms around today, he is quickly gaining notoriety as a health and fitness enthusiast.
Schneider’s primary exercise of choice is running. For almost two decades, Schneider has completed some of the world’s most prominent marathons. Schneider completed his first Ironman triathlon in 2013 in New Zealand. He persevered through some of the most challenging course conditions of all triathlons to complete the feat and sign up for yet another one. He has been setting new goals for himself ever since. One of the things that Schneider says that he finds most rewarding and fulfilling about training and racing is that he learns that he has the mental fortitude to keep pushing himself to new limits. Schneider says that this positive outlook and sense of self-worth has carried through to his profession, which has allowed him to maintain a determined mindset even in the face of great adversity.
Schneider loves to share his love of fitness with others. He hopes that his story will inspire other people to get out of their fitness comfort zones and challenge themselves to achieve something new and exciting. He also shares this lifestyle with all of his employees and has worked hard to build a corporate culture around maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Schneider knows from his own personal experience that his employees are better equipped to achieve their best at work each day when they are confident and physically healthy. In addition to chatting generally with his colleagues and employees, Schneider also writes frequently about the benefits of physical fitness and how he has pushed through some major challenges to achieve his objectives. His blog posts are uplifting and informational.
