Jeffrey has to stay in shape all-year-round due to his model engagements and the reputation he got for being athletic. He manages that feat in a wide variety of ways and his workouts are never boring. He does boxing, plays basketball, swims, surfs, rides a bicycle and a skateboard, and also does calisthenics and can do a “human flag” which attests to his upper body strength and muscle balance.
Jeffrey is also a fan of adrenaline-pumping, extreme sports such as riding a powerful motorcycle. He is also not afraid of heights and was seen hanging from an extremely tall tower-like construction in a pull-up position, which would result in certain death if his grip slipped. Jeff and Cierra also jumped out of a plane in the Death Valley National Park in Eastern California, United States.
