Photographer, Filmmaker and longtime The North Face athlete, Jimmy Chin is a busy man. His photography expeditions take him all over the world and while regular grueling gym sessions may not be something the average photographer needs to do, they are an essential part of Jimmy's routine to ensure he's ready and able to keep up with the explorers and other adventurers he follows with his kit.

As you'll learn in the above video, Jimmy has to be ready at a moment's notice and his training plays a pivotal role in maintaining the focus and fitness he needs to be able to do this. 

"One of the hardest parts of my jobs is staying in shape so when I'm home in Jackson I'm always pretty much training for my next assignment," says Jimmy. 

As well as his fitness regime, the video gives a little insight into Jimmy's love for New York day-to-day activities which sometimes include climbing a snow-covered mountain! 

"In the mountains I want to be cranking, I want to feel strong and I want to be able to enjoy myself," says Jimmy. "It's really critical for me to stay as fit as I possibly can in order for me to shoot with the athletes that I shoot with. The last thing I ever want to do in the World is hold up my crew.....I just have to keep training (here) so I can do what I do in the mountains."
