On the 22nd of September 2020, Vikram took a huge step towards completely transforming his life.
He had been following RNT on Instagram and had always been amazed and impressed by the quality of the RNT transformations he saw week on week. A couple of his friends had also been on their RNT journeys and he thought maybe this would help turn his life around.
Vikram had always struggled with low self-confidence and low self-esteem. He had a deep-rooted inferiority complex that affected his work and his relationships with friends and family.
He hated the way he looked in the mirror and felt so self conscious that he hated taking his top off at the beach or by the pool when on holiday.
“When I signed up to RNT, I was at a really low point in my life, I literally felt like I was losing control of my life and I knew that something had to give. I had to make drastic changes both for myself and for my family. I had no education on nutrition, I was drinking excessively, I would get a takeaway 3-4 times a week and was not watching what I ate at all! I knew I had to make a change both physically and mentally. When I saw the way people’s lives changed after they joined RNT I was inspired and I thought, if I could have that support and guidance I can change my life, it’s not the end I can start from the beginning and improve myself. I feel so blessed now that I found RNT, it has truly been a life-changer”
Vikram has lost 30kgs on his journey and gained a new surge of confidence and self-worth. He is now a completely different person!
The RNT Support System
Vikram had been trying very hard to improve his physical fitness for years. He had tried loads of personal trainers and had spent loads of money trying to find the right fitness solution with little progress.
“There was no structure to my training, I felt like I was just jumping from one PT trainer to the next. I had a PT session every week, but there was no progression in place. I felt like it wasn’t a holistic approach to training, it wasn’t about transforming the overall health and well-being. It felt like it was just about increasing muscle mass which is just one part of it, but with RNT it was a total transformation which has really been a game-changer for myself.”
Vikram achieved the level of fitness he desired with RNT that had previously eluded him because he had all the tools he needed to action his desires. The information he received and the support from the RNT team as well as from fellow RNTers was instrumental in helping him reach his goals.
The three aspects that had the biggest bearings on his transformation were:
The Book - Transform Your Body, Transform Your Life
Before signing up to RNT - Vikram read Akash’s book, the Amazon bestseller, Transform Your Body, Transform Your Life. He found that the book really pulled all the bits and pieces of body transformation into a context that was easier to absorb.
“The book is so amazing! It really helped me put the structure and systems in place that has helped me so much! It really helps people understand exactly what they need to do and what to expect when you start on a body transformation journey.”
To help all our members understand all aspects of physical fitness we roll out a weekly curriculum that gives them bite-sized, easy to understand information on the essential points of the process.
“The education aspect has been phenomenal. I have listened to all the podcasts and I have learnt so much! I have learnt about training techniques, the importance of sleep (my sleep was really bad before), the water and the importance of steps. I never used to monitor my steps before, now I’m better informed and educated. The weekly deep-dives have been amazing with the RNT coaches. I have learnt something new every week which has been really invaluable.”
The RNT Community
Holding yourself accountable to make sure you adhere to the different parts of the process is of course important, but when you have a large community of people who are on the same trajectory the support and advice from all of the RNT family can make the whole process seem a lot less daunting.
“I was a bit hesitant at first when I joined the RNT Facebook Community. I was a bit scared and I wasn’t sure what to expect. Now it’s like part of being in a family, it’s so supportive, you can ask questions and get feedback from other members as well as the coaches. I would upload training videos to check if I was executing the exercises properly and that has greatly helped my confidence in the gym as well.”
The Physical Is the Vehicle
Since joining RNT Vikram has lost over 30kgs. He started off at 97kgs and a year later he met his checkpoint weight at 66kgs.
In his video testimonial Vikram tells us how much his life has changed after his journey with RNT and not just with respect to fitness. His life transformed in every sense of the word.
“I never thought I could achieve that! I never thought I would have a 6 pack. I never thought I would be this lean. It’s so true, if you trust the process and you trust the stages, if you follow and you are adherent you will get where you want to be.
My main focus now is to improve my mental health, I have struggled with mental health over the years. I have anxiety and I also have anxiety attacks. It’s getting much better. On the physical aspect I want to add more muscle mass and find the sweet spot where all areas of my life are in sync. I want to be a high performer in all areas of my life. I am excited to see what I can achieve going forward. I am so confident now, I have the systems in place and the education. Another main focus is to improve my relationship with food, I have an addictive personality so that is something I want to change. The journey will go on for me in that respect, I am confident I can make all the changes and better myself with all the help and support I get from RNT.
The mantra ‘the physical is the vehicle’ is such a powerful phrase and it helps me improve other areas of my life. I have lots of plans and I have lots to look forward to and so let’s see where it all takes off for me. I am so grateful to RNT for everything that they have done for me.”
