On today’s episode of RNT Fitness Radio, I’m joined by long term RNTer Stephen Smyth, an ex army officer  who comes on to talk about why long term investment phases are so critical, as well as diving into some sage leadership and management advice from his experiences of leading big teams both in his army and corporate career. If you’re looking to upgrade your physique after your first checkpoint, build rules around your ultimate lifestyle and learn leadership strategies from the best, make sure you tune into this episode.
