Ep. 98 - Hall of Fame | Dan Hill – The Traits, Struggles & Art Of High Performance

Welcome back to another episode of RNT Fitness Radio, and today I’m joined by one of our RNT clients, Dan Hill.

Dan’s a serial entrepreneur in the world of property, and over the past year has completely transformed his body to get into the shape of his life. 
In this episode, we talk about the journey Dan’s so far, and how an extended phase of Cleaning the Palate served him so well in achieving his photoshoot condition, as well as his experiences in Consolidation so far.

Where this podcasts gets really interesting though is when we discuss the art and characteristics of high performance, the mindset required for it, and the introspection and insights you gain through the dark periods of a transformation.

This is a candid and raw episode where we both go deep into why we do what we do, common struggles of high performers, and why ultimately, as Dan likes to say, success and failure are both very predictable. ⁣
