Ep. 210 - Reframing Expectations & Lessons From Failure w/ Ivan Gavranic

On this episode of RNT Fitness Radio, Ed and I decide to put Ivan Gavranic under the spotlight, where we have a fascinating discussion about his early experiences of failures and childhood expectations, that ultimately led to him down the path he travels on now, where he lives and breathes our mantra: the physical is the vehicle. If you want a glimpse of what true transformation, inside and out, is all about, and how you can reframe setbacks – no matter when they may have happened, into opportunities, this is going to be a big one for you.

“If you have a passion for something, you will educate yourself on it.”
