Ep. 155 - Hall of Fame | Shiv Haria - Being A High Performer To Stay In Shape For Life

Today I’m joined by long term RNT’er, Shiv Haria, who epitomises everything about our mission at RNT, and I can’t wait for you to listen to this conversation between us.

While Shiv’s started off as a journey to improve his physique, it’s developed and evolved into a journey of how to become a high performer in all areas of his life. Especially for his career – where he uses the physical as the vehicle to fuel his growing business. 

A common trait we’ve seen in those who STAY in shape year round is that it goes beyond the physical. It becomes about connecting the dots between what the physical gives to your highest priorities in life – whether that be your relationships, career, health or business. It has to be about something more, and it has to become about being a high performer in that domain. For context, Shiv has held a ‘4 pack’ for over two years now, which shows his real change. 

When you start using rules to fuel your performance, you stay in shape as a byproduct. Having rules that work takes trial and error, education, accountability and effective coaching to get right, and it’s arguably the most important part of building a lifestyle solution that works for you year round.
In this episode, we discuss the first three years of his journey, and how he’s moved through the gears to unlock more and more on his pursuit of self mastery. 

If you want to learn how to be a high performer and STAY in shape, listen right till the end of this one.
