Ep. 08 - Hall of Fame | Shyam Kotecha - How He Went from Chubby City Worker to Photoshoot Lean in 15 Weeks

Over the course of 7 years, Shyam finished three body transformations. 

With the guidance of Akash, he was able to complete the 15-week transformation. In today’s episode, Shyam shared how this transformation made him feel and what will be his future plans. Akash also discussed the importance of sticking to one program and how being inactive will slow down your progress.

“Don’t chase perfection. Too many people will start this thing and try to get the nutrient timing down. They will try to take the correct supplements all the time. The key is you get started, you do what you can and be consistent with it”
– Team RNT
