Ep. 86 - Hall of Fame | Sanjeeta Halai - How She Dropped 20% Of Her Bodyweight In 16 Weeks To Fight Her Demons & Climb Out Of Rock Bottom

I still remember when Sanjeeta first reached out to us.

She wrote an email titled ‘help’, and after learning about where she was in her journey, I knew she’d come to the right place.

When you’re at rock bottom, one of the best ways to climb out is to focus relentlessly on yourself, and use the physical as an outlet to pour your energy into.
Since working with us over the past 5 months, she’s completely transformed both her body and mind. She’s down 11kg, regained control of her day, and found purpose in her life again.

In today’s episode, Sanj doesn’t hold back, and talks about all the struggles she’s been through, taboos she’s faced, and how the physical has proven to be a real vehicle for her change.

We’ve also released her case study, which is written as an account from Sanj, and I’d urge you to read it in the show notes after listening. 

‘’The timeframe doesn’t really matter, you’ll get there’’
