A day in the life of Tim Kennedy is packed with training, business, and family commitments, all vying for his time and attention.
A Green Beret sniper and retired Mixed Martial Artist, Tim Kennedy was once on the ISIS hit list. When he found out, rather than shying away or going into hiding, Tim challenged the terrorists to come and get him. They didn't.
Now a wealthy man, Tim is also a television star, entrepreneur, and TV producer. He takes on some of the world’s most hazardous tasks on the Discovery Channel's “Hard to Kill” series. Previously, he took part in the History Channel's “Hunting Hitler“ series.

A typical day for Tim Kennedy starts bright and early at 5.30 am. He says he eats six to seven meals a day. His meals consist only of healthy food. So, he’s likely to start his morning with a bowl of oatmeal or Avo on toast.
His first training session is in the morning, choosing strength and conditioning training.
Much of his afternoon likely revolves around working on and in his businesses. Kennedy has become a serial entrepreneur with ownership and stakes in several companies, including Sheepdog Response and Ranger Up. Equally, he may be busy with television production, which could take up the whole day.
Tim Kennedy starts the afternoon with a healthy snack, including plenty of fruit and vegetables.
He works out at least twelve times a week, so you'll find Kennedy in the gym sometime in the afternoon. His training regime is varied, with workouts including Brazilian Jiujitsu, hot yoga, and cardio. Kennedy usually finds some time for sparring in the afternoon.
He likes to take a regular dip in icy water. He'll have another mid-afternoon snack.
After an evening snack, Tim fits in a Jiujutsu workout. He has a third-degree Black Belt. He’ll enjoy another bigger meal a little later in the evening with his wife, Ginger, a teacher and media personality, and their four children.
With all the exercise Tim does, there is very little time for less grueling pastimes, but he’s sure to spend some part of the evening hanging out with his wife and kids and, from time to time, a few pals. He enjoys a glass or two of wine on occasion.
At 11.30 pm, he switches off the lights and turns in for the night, meaning he gets about five and a half hours of sleep a night.
