    Today I’d love to give a big shout out to RNTers Zain, Punit, Reena and Zulf for all crushing their checkpoints 🔥

    The checkpoint is the moment you’re in the best shape of your life.

    I like to think the faster you can get to your checkpoint, the faster you can get to work on the real work:

    Building the lifestyle solution to stay in shape for the rest of your life.

    On yesterday’s Masterclass (which was off the charts!), I shared the exact methods behind how we help our members.

    I know life can get busy, so I recorded it for you to watch back:

    The only catch? It expires on Tuesday 17th October, so if you can carve out an hour in the next few days, it’ll be well worth it.

    For now, let’s dive into this week’s Transformation Thursday…


    3 Ways To Feel, Look & Perform Better

    1. “Spot stop swap” for reduced snacking
    I really like Jay Shetty’s framework (from his book Think Like A Monk) for beating bad habits here:

    Spot - Clock the feeling (“I feel like I want a snack”)

    Stop - Ask why (“why am I wanting a snack? What’s the trigger?”)

    Swap - Do something else (“let me go for a walk instead and call a friend”)

    I think it works great for beat snacking, and getting to the root cause of why we snack.

       2. Reducing wardrobe decisions!

    One of the biggest game changers for more mental bandwidth is simplifying and automating one of the following:
    • Your clothing choices (ie. giving yourself a uniform)
    • Your daily routine (ie. when you go to the gym, etc)
    • Your meals (ie. eating similar foods 80% of time)
    I recorded a quick video of what I’ve been doing since 2015 here.

       3. Don’t die in your cardio sessions

    I’m learning with my running that most of your cardio doesn’t need to kill you.

    In fact, the goal for my “easy runs” is to choose an intensity I could easily do for double the prescribed time. 

    I used to always think cardio needed to be done all out to get a training effect. But the opposite is true.

    I now try to feel good, not battered. I’m breathing a little more but I could maintain a conversation if I needed to.

    Next time you’re doing some low intensity cardio (on whichever machine or outdoors), try this approach instead.

    Save the high intensity work for the gym!

    RNT Member Spotlight - Premila 🏆

    Today we’d love to give a huge shout-out to supermum Premila who redefined her health at 50 💪

    Premila was no stranger to an active lifestyle, regularly running 10 miles and cycling long distances. 

    She believed she could manage her health independently with exercise and a good diet. 

    But 3 pivotal moments made her strong stance wobble: 

    • A selfie taken with a friend gave her a new perspective on how she actually looked. 
    • A fit and active friend in his 50s had a health scare on a hilly bike ride.
    • Her blood work showed that her cholesterol levels were a bit too high.

    These three moments together sealed her decision…

    She signed straight away.  

    And today, she feels much stronger, looks fantastic and her blood work is fine!

    Most importantly, she has the tools and knowledge she needs to fine-tune her approach to health and fitness.
    What a physique at 50!
