Episode 164: Government Health Initiatives, Sporting Culture & High Performance

On this episode of RNT Fitness Radio, I’m joined by fellow RNT Coach Kunal Makwana, aka Mr Kmak, to talk all about some of the recent government “health initiatives” in the UK and where it’s all going to go wrong.

We also dive into the power of a strong culture in any organisation. Specifically, what some of the building blocks of ours at RNT is, and what we can learn from some of the best in sport.

As a self acclaimed sporting historian, Kmak gives anecdotes from different sports on what you can implement into your place of work for the better of everyone.


‘’Health is something that we can’t take for granted; health is wealth.’’
