I am a UK based professional engineer who has a routine office job like many of us. Being a fitness fanatic, training with weights has been my passion for quite a few years now. It is my personality to be driven by SMART goals in whatever I do, as this gives me a sense of achievement. This has been my approach to training as well. And as a result I had been able to achieve good numbers on my major lifts (Deadlifts, Squat and bench) and even competed in powerlifting competitions.
However, a couple of years ago, I reached a point in my training where no matter what combination of training (i.e. varying volume, lifts, and exercises) I followed, I reached a plateau and saw no progress. I stalled and I started feeling like I was losing strength due to over training to compensate without recovery. That is when I made a decision to seek help from “experts” BUT that is not when I joined RNT. Instead I sought help form one of the other leading online training groups, who is considered to be well reputed in the industry. And honestly having trained under their guidance for 4 months, I saw ZERO progress. There were times when I even felt that I know better than that coach who was supposed to be an expert!! It was a lot of money down the drain and was the height of frustration with plateauing for me. And that is when I did my proper research for a trainer who is knowledgeable and importantly shares my focus on achieving results and not just a well-advertised brand. This is when I landed at RNT fitness 18 months ago!!!
The process of working with RNT, so far, has been quite a positive and successful journey for me. Since having joined RNT, not only am I physically the strongest I have ever been but the leanest ever as well!!! I have seen results on my lifts which were previously just aspirations to achieve for several years. Coupled with the results, the last 18 months have also been a steep learning curve for me, not only related to training but more so about nutrition. I realised during my journey that I had to relearn lot of information and change quite a few old habits. However, I was not reluctant to do that as I found the RNT team very methodical and knowledgeable. Having seen the best strength results and the highest body fat loss during my journey, if I have to pick one thing which I have learnt at RNT then it would be the importance of how much getting the correct nutrition coupled with training can fuel the body to achieve the required goal; be it muscle building or fat loss. I am most happy to have experienced that I can have a healthy relationship with Carbs and I don’t need to live forever excluding them from my meals. This had always been a struggle for me for years.
I am very proud and happy to have achieved my results but I could not have possibly been even close without RNT!!
As I continue my journey with RNT, for anyone who is aspiring to achieve their desired results and work with RNT, here are some insider’s tips :
- Trust the coaches at RNT they know what they are doing
- It’s not going to happen in a day but don’t question the process for there is no other outcome, just positive results
- Be assured your coach will be there through every roadblock in your transformation journey.
- Give your best and take it a day at a time
