Ep. 143 - Hall of Fame | Kunaal Shah – Programme Hopping, Yo-Yo’ing & What To Do About It

On today’s episode of RNT Fitness Radio, I’m joined by Kunaal Shah, the man who’s transformation so far has inspired communities all over the city of Nairobi. 

His story is a truly remarkable journey that I’m excited for you to hear more about as it defies all the problems so many are stuck with, from programme hopping, to paralysis by analysis, to overwhelm, to yo-yo’ing, and all the repercussions these bring.

In this episode we talk about his why, the different phases he’s gone through, and the bit I loved the most, hearing how the physical has been the vehicle for the greater good in his life. 

If you want to dive deep into the power of the journey, this is an episode you won’t want to miss.             
’You have to trust your coach, and trust the process’’                                                                         – Kunaal Shah
