Ep 67 – Team RNT: The Five Phases On A Transformation Journey

Welcome back to another episode of RNT Fitness Radio, and this week I’m joined by the Hitman Nathan Johnson who’s here to speak with me all about the five phases of an ideal transformation journey, which are: Phase 1 – Clean the Palate, Phase 2 – Process, Phase 3, Consolidation, Phase 4 – Investment and Phase 5 – Reward. We dive into each phase separately and uncover the lifestyle solutions that can help you maximise each one. Where we spend most of our time, and go really deep into, is the Consolidation phase. We talk about the dangers that many of you will face here, and how you need to be prepared for it ahead of time in order to consolidate your gains properly. I know we discuss this phase a lot, but given our own personal experiences of spending years messing it up, it’s now our duty to make sure you don’t go through the same. Hope you enjoy this one!
