    Ep 174 – Lucy Spraggan: Embracing Sobriety And A New Identity

    Ep 174 – Lucy Spraggan: Embracing Sobriety And A New Identity

    On this episode of RNT Fitness Radio I’m joined by singer Lucy Spraggan, who first sprung to the limelight for auditioning on X-Factor in 2012, and since gone on to produce a number of top chart albums. More recently, after years of struggling with alcohol, she went totally sober and decided to go headfirst into getting into shape. What transpired was a whole new body, lifestyle and mindset, and in this episode we discuss this transformation, as well as the struggles she faced, managing her new identity and what we can do to make gyms more female friendly!
     
    “The only validation that should matter should be from you.”

    Ep 172 – Andy Lopata: Just Ask

    Ep 172 – Andy Lopata: Just Ask

    On this episode of RNT Fitness Radio I’m joined by Andy Lopata, a professional speaker, relationships strategist and an author of a few books, of which the newest to be released is called Just Ask - which is what we’re diving into today. We talk all about vulnerability, authenticity, the power of a safe space, and why the simple question of ‘how are you?’ can be so powerful. In fact, you’ll see the transformation of that one question asked at the start compared to later on, and just how it can open up the conversation to another level. 
     
    “Understand your purpose in sharing and how you expect it to move you forward.”

    Ep 171 - #AuthenticAF P1: Metabolic Damage & Adaptation, Is It Real?

    Ep 171 - #AuthenticAF P1: Metabolic Damage & Adaptation, Is It Real?

    Today we are kicking off a new series where we’ll dive into all the industry myths out there and break through them one at a time.
     
    With the initial goal to get through five topics today, we instead spent an hour dissecting metabolism, specifically talking about metabolic damage, whether it’s real, what really happens physiologically and psychologically, and the realities of metabolism during dieting.
     
    This is a deep dive that will continue to evolve in more episodes, and I can’t wait for you to hear the first of many myths getting slayed
     
     
    “We know what works, and it’s hard work and consistency. But it’s a lot easier to blame metabolism.”

Jakk epitomises using the physical as the vehicle, and in this he speaks straight from the heart about breaking out of the victim mindset, taking the small wins, and climbing out of rock bottom into a whole new life he lives now.

    Ep 169 – Asoka Veeravagu: How Developing A Growth Mindset Can Impact All Areas Of Your Life

    Ep 169 – Asoka Veeravagu: How Developing A Growth Mindset Can Impact All Areas Of Your Life

    On this episode of RNT Fitness Radio I’m joined by Asoka Veeravagu, to talk about his journey of being in the shape of his life at 50 years young, and all the challenges he’s faced in getting to this point. Arguably the biggest point to emphasise here is the need to shift from a fixed to growth mindset if you want to truly embrace the power of incremental gains that come with this transformation journey. In a candid conversation, Asoka tells the story of rewiring years of thinking to reveal his best self heading into his sixth decade.
     
    “Everyone can have a better day today than yesterday.”
