Ep. 139 - Hall of Fame | Nim And Sonayna Chandran - Living The Lifestyle Solution

On today’s episode of RNT Fitness Radio, I’m joined by long term RNTers Nim and Sonayna Chandran. Both of them are in lengthy Investment phases so I wanted to bring them on to discuss the power of this phase, the benefits it can bring, and how the journey continues to evolve as you go through it.

Through this discussion, we talk about building the ultimate lifestyle solution around your unique 3Ss and rules, how to be coachable and how to transform your body and life as a couple.
‘’Fat loss gives you lessons on how to get really good condition, investment phases give you lessons about how to live your life”
