Morning Routine: Michael Chernow

Michael Chernow, restaurateur – founder of The Meatball Shop, Seamores, WellWell is also a husband, father, model, watch junkie, serious fitness freak and STUD. Read below for a peek into his morning routine (hint, he gets up and after it!)

My morning routine is not always the same. The routine changes based on what I am training for, if its marathon or bodybuilding competition, I am up and out at 5:30 am, but if I am not training for anything specific, here's my morning.

5:45 AM

Eyes open... the first thing I do when my eyes open is a smile, I smile from ear to ear, a cheesy, 10-second long smile. I was given this tool by someone I respect immensely, the mental and physical impact the morning smile has on me is incredible.

5:46

Typically my kids are in bed at this point, they are early risers and so my wife grabs them and brings them into our room most mornings around 5 am. I roll over and hug and kiss my wife and kids, Finn is 4 and Dakota is 22 months. We wrestle a bit, Donna pops up and starts the breakfast stuff. 

6:00

Pop-out of bed and immediately make it, I never do anything before my bed is made. Then I open the curtains and let the sun blast our bedroom.

6:05

I hit the bathroom, wash my face, brush my teeth, put on my contacts. 

 6:10

Once I'm done with the washing and brushing, I hit my knees. I have been praying every morning for the last 15 years. I simply ask the universe to help humble me throughout the day and to guide me with positivity and optimism.

6:15

I do 50 push-ups right after my morning prayers.

6:20 

I make my bulletproof coffee and layout my supplements

6:30

Make my breakfast, I've been eating the same thing for a few years now. 4 egg whites, 1 whole egg, 2 cups of spinach. 

6:35

Throw on some tunes that the whole family enjoys, typically The Beatles, Queen, or.... The Batman theme song, Power rangers theme song... you know…

6:45

Eat breakfast, drink coffee, take supplements.

Check my emails

7:15

Help my wife get the kids ready for the day

Hop in the shower and apply Jack Henry Face Refresh Serum that keeps my face feeling so fresh.
