Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit and Initialized Capital, is forever on the road. Heres what keeps him going. As told to Marjorie Korn

The week started in Buenos Aires. Then I flew to Mexico City. Now Im home in Miami. Last year, I did 550 flight hours for Initialized Capital, which I co-founded. So Im thoughtful about what I packlike a TRX to get a quick pump in before meetings. It makes me feel alive and helps with jet lag.

I try not to be away for more than a week at a timelonger for Grand Slams and tournaments. The mornings my wife, Serena [Williams], and I are together, shell go train, and Ill hit the gym with my trainer. I do whatever he tells me to dostrength training, weights, and old-school medicine ball work. I like to incorporate big, heavy chains into those workouts. I find excuses to wear them during exercises. As far as tennis, Ive never played in my life, and I dont really plan to pick up that sport unless my daughter, Olympia, wants to learn. Then Ill play with her.

I love intermittent fasting. Its easy for me because I love black coffee; thats all the breakfast I need. On weekends, I cheat. Family breakfast is more important. And Im 90 percent plant-based. I saw the documentary Game Changers before Olympia was born. It made a compelling case for a plant-based diet. At 34, I drink less than I did in my 20s. In business, its easy to drink every night. Now when I drink, I make it count. As far as my overall health, Id give myself a B+room for growth, but the trend is in the right direction.
