EP 100: Akash & His Parents: Coming from Africa, Secrets to Successful Relationships & Riding the RNT Journey

We’ve hit a century at RNT Fitness Radio! To mark the special occasion, I decided to bring on my greatest mentors and supporters in life: my parents!

In a candid episode, we dive into their reaction to my change in career choice, their roots in Africa, social stigmas and community shifts, the secrets to successful relationships – both romantically and within families, where my drive comes from, and their thoughts on what we’re building at RNT.

Nothing at RNT would be possible without their support – they’ve been there through every part of the rollercoaster journey, the highs and the lows, so it only made sense to mark episode 100 with them.
