EP 52: Maneet Dharia: How He Dropped 50lbs to Get Shredded in a Year

On today’s episode of RNT Fitness Radio, we’re joined by one of our RNT clients, Maneet, to dive deep into his awesome transformation. At the start of this year, Maneet came to us with his life-long goal of getting a six pack, but he said he wanted to take a slower approach and make it seamless with his extremely busy lifestyle as a dentist, moving to a new city. Over the course of the last 10 months, he’s managed to drop a total of 50lbs, get into the shape of his life and complete a photoshoot in California with one of the world’s best photographers. He did so well he even had tourists asking to take pictures! We discuss lifestyle design, accountability, personal development, and ultimately, and how to create real sustainable change in your life.

 “If you can’t keep a promise to yourself, what can you do?”.
