Ep. 133 - Hall of Fame | Dhinil Patel - Business During Covid-19, Funny Fitness Stories & Using The Physical As The Vehicle

On today’s episode of RNT Fitness Radio, I’m joined by one of my closest friends, Dhinil Patel, who joined me to talk about business, specifically how his own business is doing through the covid-19 pandemic,. Dhinil was one of my first clients close to ten years ago, and he was one of my first guinea pigs for many of my early experimentations on all things fitness. In this episode we dive deep into his journey over the past decade, and how the physical has been the vehicle for the greater good in his life, while forming the underpinning for allowing him to succeed in his business, relationships and life overall. I was in tears of laughter at one point in this episode, and I can’t wait for you to listen.
