The second alarm bell was less of a shocker, but the long-term effect on the quality of his life really drove the point home. During park dates with his then 1-year-old daughter, he was barely able to keep up with her as she explored. He was self-conscious when he noticed that other fathers were able to keep going while he simply could not.
That became the trigger for Akshar to start a remarkable journey which saw him drop 70lbs, and most importantly, gain the energy, strength, and vitality to be the best possible father and husband for his family.
Akshar transformed his body and life, and is using the physical as the vehicle, and in this podcast, he discusses just how far he’s come. Be sure to check out his case study linked in the show notes too.
“There’s so many layers beyond body transformation.”
