Ep. 197 - Hall of Fame | Ricky Shah - How People Really Make Decisions

On this episode of #RNTFitnessRadio I am joined by long-term member, Ricky Shah, who to this day, is still the most impressive physical starting point I have seen on an application form. At the start of my book, I say: getting in shape is easy, staying in shape is a whole different ball game. Ricky knew this so decided to come to us for one reason, and for what we are best at: to learn how to stay in shape, make continuous improvements, and truly transform your behaviour, mindset, and identity to be your best self. Where this podcast gets interesting is when we tap into Ricky’s consumer psychology background, and explore themes of decision fatigue, food variety, reversions to the mean, and the most popular meal in the UK. He has recommended some books to read more on these topics, for which I have linked in the show notes below.
“In order to succeed, you need to be innovative.”
