Episode 284 - Energize w/ Simon Alexander Ong

Welcome back to another episode of RNT Fitness Radio, where I’m joined by Simon Alexander Ong, who is a personal development entrepreneur, coach and public speaker. His clients are from all walks of life but they share one trait; they all believe that the greatest investment you can make is in yourself. His work has seen him invited onto Sky News and BBC to be interviewed, while Barclays featured him in a nationwide campaign asking him questions on how families could embrace better lifestyle habits. 
His insights have seen him featured in HuffPost, Forbes, Virgin and the Guardian. He also regularly speaks at organisations (these have included Salesforce, Microsoft, EY, Canon and Unilever) and keynotes public events and conferences. His debut book Energize was published by Penguin in April 2022 and received endorsements from the likes of New York Times bestselling authors Simon Sinek, Marie Forleo and Dr Marshall Goldsmith. 
In this episode today, we dive into energy management, the art of high performance, leadership, and how you can immediately change the trajectory of your days, weeks, months and overall life.
