Episode 138: Jay Alderton – Permanent Thinking, Preventing Meltdown & Staying Healthy In Lockdown

On today’s episode of RNT Fitness Radio, I’m joined by Jay Alderton, author of two books, Mindset With Muscle and Meltdown, creator of the Trainermind app, and founder of the Train With Jay and the J8 challenge. 

In this episode, we dive into the strategies to keep yourself physically and mentally healthy during lockdown, the mindset of how to approach the situation, and the importance of adopting what Jay’s coined as permanent thinking.

We also discuss the continuum of being selfish and selfless, morning and evening routines, and how to protect your number one asset: you. 

There’s plenty of golden nuggets to pick out from Jay here. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and always chasing your tail, this is one you won’t want to miss.


                  ‘’The art of success is showing up every day regardless of how you feel’
