In this Rebelcast episode, Jevgeni and Tom divert from the traditional coder profile to discuss what they do to maintain their incredible physiques–they’ve become very good at patiently explaining to modeling agencies that they are already employed running a successful software company.
Some things that the guys do for staying in shape and still meeting all their deadlines:

- Change your outlook! Workouts are like jobs. When you wake up to go to work, you don’t think much about it, but unlike a job, you do not get paid to exercise so you must look for something that gives you that motivation.
- Keep up with the Go and chess, but realize that your body needs exercise just like those synapses.
