Episode 170 – Jakk Gerard: Training 1200+ Days In A Row

On this episode of RNT Fitness Radio I’m joined by Jakk Gerard, who shares his story of going from suicidal thoughts to a remarkable journey of training in gym 1200 days in a row and counting. Jakk epitomises using the physical as the vehicle, and in this he speaks straight from the heart about breaking out of the victim mindset, taking the small wins, and climbing out of rock bottom into a whole new life he lives now.


“Your emotions are fuel. Channel it into something positive.”

Jakk Gerard
