DJ Ruckus (government name: Greg Andrews) is so devoted to fitness that whenever he travels to another city — which, as a celebrity DJ, he does often — he always tries to hunt down the best local gym.

The Cut caught up with the DJ, who is engaged to Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik, on a recent phone call. Read on to find out why he doesn’t eat meat in the mornings, how he prepares for flights with yoga, and where all the cool people go to work out in Los Angeles.

Why I meditate: I like to meditate in the morning for 5, 10, or 30 minutes. It sets your mind at ease. When you’re DJing, there may be some technical issues, or some bottle-buyer in the club who spent $100,000 on Champagne and wants you to play something that’s completely left of what you’re playing and it changes your whole trajectory. It’s important to stay calm and comfortable, and that comes from meditation.
