Ep. 117 - Hall of Fame | Vishal Shanker - Building Relationships & Auditing Your Life Through The RNT Journey

Welcome back to another episode of RNT Fitness Radio, and today I’m joined by RNTer Vishal Shanker, who at the tail end of 2019 reached his first Transformation Checkpoint and came on the podcast to tell his story while in the midst of the Grind phase.

Vishal shares his strong connection to his why, how he’s juggled his own goals with being an active father to a newborn, and how the physical has been the vehicle to transform his life over the course of his RNT Journey so far.

This is a powerful episode, and I can’t wait for you to listen to Vishal’s story. Let’s dive in..
