Here's what the CEO of Cigna does to stay in shape when he can't get to the gym

Cigna CEO David Cordani works out every day.

“An average day for me is an hour workout in the morning before I start my day — no matter where I am in the world — to get that not just physical activity but stress reliever and quality of life,” Cordani, who’s a triathlete, told Business Insider.

Since Cigna is a global company, being out of town is more likely than not for Cordani. Even so, he doesn’t miss a day.

“I’m a big believer that there’s always a way to get in a workout,” he told Business Insider via email. “I’ve had hotels open their gyms ahead of schedule when the gym hours don’t align with my work schedule. And when I’m at a hotel without a gym and exercising outdoors isn’t an option, I’ll run the stairs.”

Cordani’s in his 25th year running triathlons, and has competed in more than 125 races. He also participates in that also participates in Achilles International, a program in which he runs races guiding veterans who may be single or double-amputee.
