Jeffry Schneider has always been a man who focuses on his health; inside and outside of work. While at work, he makes sure that he eats a healthy diet, because he is all-too-aware of the pitfalls of an American diet. Outside of the job, he participates in numerous half ironman challenges that take place around the world. These have taken him to parts of the globe he would of never imagined visiting, such as, Croatia, New Zealand, Chile, Saint Croix, and many different parts of the United States. He also enjoys traveling, aside from the challenges, and especially loves rural Budapest and Thailand. He says it’s mainly the culture and vibe that draws him to those places, and he hopes to continue being able to visit them.
