I am a Business Mentor/Coach and serial entrepreneur. I am Founder & CEO of Lighthouse Capital, a company forged on the principles of Honesty, Transparency and ultimate Integrity.
I am a father of 2 young boys and have run multiple businesses. I lost my father (he was 51 years old at the time) at a very young age, which really made me grow up faster than I would have wanted. Having worked within the Investment Banking arena for over 25 years, I found life just got away from me and noticed my body struggling some 3 years ago. Having frequent gout attacks, high cholesterol, onset of diabetes together with real pain in my body I decided that I simply did not want to die when I had not even reached 50 years!.
In October 2017, I decided to undertake some DNA, blood & Urine tests as the first measure to find out the current state of my health, which really opened met eyes up. Its at this stage I came across RNT Fitness, having seen some amazing results from two of my good friends Akash Desai and Shiv Haria, that’s when I thought there must be something in this and decided I wanted to work with RNT Fitness. The crazy thing was, I signed up in April 2018, but physically did not kick start my RNT journey until August 2018 – I call these the lost months.
When I was assigned my RNT coach, I remember suggesting I would be happy with a 10/15 Kg drop. At this early stage I simply did not have the self belief that I could drop even 10 Kilos, let alone the subsequently amazing results that have come through. At the time, I was even gave me some ball park numbers as to my shredded weight and even mentioned that he would get me to 28 inch waist – which I politely laughed off. Well, I can safely say that he was 100% right in saving my life.
All my health markers are now stable, with Diabetes, Cholesterol and Gout all gone. I can safely say that RNT has given me a second wind in my life, having recently turned 50 I now look forward to the 2nd chapter in my life. RNT Fitness, lead by the able Akash Vaghela, I simply say they are the most caring bunch of people I have ever had the pleasure of working with – life changers. The process, systems and accountability they have continue to inspire and change peoples lives. The support is incredible and goes above and beyond the call of duty.
Feels great to feel young again and full energy. Not only have I improved my life as a Coach/Mentor, my business has exploded, as RNT puts it, the Physical is the Vehicle for great immeasurable things in life. To those considering putting a value on their lives, RNT Fitness are simply priceless.
Thanks RNT, Big Love & Hugs!
I first contacted RNT to get into shape for an upcoming holiday, and within 8 weeks I’d reached my goal of 6 pack abs on the beach.
Their level of service impressed me so much that I’ve continued to train with them long past the holiday, focusing on different goals such as gaining muscle and strength development.
I’d recommend RNT to anyone looking to improve his or her physiques in the most efficient manner possible.
After fracturing my foot over the summer I spent the weeks recovering eating, drinking and being generally inactive and soon piled on the weight. I was not in great shape and I decided I needed to take action so set myself a challenge to get into the best shape ever. My previous attempts at getting fit using home DVDs were just not working. That’s when I came across RNT Fitness and after reading up and contacting them I decided to sign up! It was the best decision!
They devised an extremely detailed workout plan which included everything I needed to achieve my goal. One of the best things about this program was the communication my coach kept with me. Not only did he answer all my questions but he was always touching base, giving me lots of motivation and support. RNT’s passion, commitment and dedication to their clients is clear, they want the results as much as them if not more!
Overall, it has been an incredible experience. I have gone beyond what I had hoped for and achieved what I felt was impossible. It has definitely been a challenge juggling family life and work but by being organised and making a some changes it is possible. At 43 years of age let’s call it my midlife crisis and I aim to keep going.
My name is Ivan and I’m a coach residing in Perth, Australia. I have been extremely passionate about training, nutrition and physique optimisation from a relatively young age which stemmed from a girl saying my arms were small (as most guys can probably relate to!). I was always active from a young age and seemed to have always had certain obsessions that I would completely immerse myself in and disregard everything else.
Before starting RNT, I didn’t feel like I was going through any real emotional struggles, but I was always struggling financially. Always struggling to pay bills on time, having little money to spend on myself, etc. Having a mortgage as a personal trainer is not always the most secure thing in the world. Looking back, I just wasn’t being the best coach I could be and was blaming my circumstances more than looking inwardly as to why my client base wasn’t where it should be. This transformation made me so much more organised, pro-active and a much more effective coach which put me in a much more comfortable financial scenario. So even though my journey wasn’t born out of a strong motive to physically change (illness, breaking up with a partner, unhappy with my body) the transformation definitely leaked into other areas of my life, which seems to be a very common thing at RNT!
I decided to take action with RNT because I had been following their stuff for a while and a lot of it resonated with myself personally. I have always wanted to be shredded, and I mean disgustingly ‘paper thin skin’ shredded. It has been an obsession of mine for a long time and I felt I was in the right place and life situation to get it done. I know I knew the process on how to do it but I needed the accountability and wanted to take all the thinking out because I knew I would get in my own way when things would get hard. I could see these guys (RNT) were getting people from all works of life into amazing shape, including themselves which was very important to me. They were very liberal with their content, evidence based and most importantly, they got real results with real people and not just the genetically elite.
Working with RNT and my coach has been the greatest experience I have ever had working with a coach. I have worked with and learnt from many big names that I won’t mention, but all I am going to say is they don’t even come close to the level of attention, detail, accountability and most importantly, the care factor. RNT seemed to care more about my results than I did and I love how excited he would get with the progress we were making which just made me even more motivated to keep pushing. RNT also destroyed many preconceived notions I had about getting in TRUE stage lean condition in regards to dropping calories, doing cardio, losing muscle when dieting, cheat meals and diet breaks. It was liberating to put my full trust in them and the process and it had paid off immensely.
I can say with 100% confidence that I have finally achieved my goal physique that I want to keep for the rest of my life. I have veins coursing through my abdominals and legs all the time, my face and skin look better than ever and I hit 6.2% body fat on a DEXA. My goal was always to get to stage condition and then maintain it which I know is not sustainable or healthy for a lot of people, especially if you want to grow more muscle over the long term. But the way that RNT have guided me into this position really makes me believe it is possible. The habits I have learnt over the process have just become part of my normal day to day which I look forward to so much as they fit into my lifestyle perfectly. Cycling has now become a non-negotiable that I do every morning for 1 hour because I love it (not because it burns calories), walking 20,000 steps/day allows me to get a lot of vitamin D and learn through audiobooks and podcasts, time restricted eating allows me to feel like my meals are substantial and having to wait for your first meal makes me appreciate food so much more. Also, due to the nature of my training these days which is all gymnastic and calisthenics based, I can tolerate a much higher training frequency without getting as beat up as someone training with barbells predominantly. I believe all these factors combined have put me in the perfect position to maintain what I have worked so hard for and I can’t praise the team at RNT enough. It has truly been a life changing experience and I have never felt more comfortable in my own skin.
I have struggled with my weight since a very young age and tried all sorts to be in better shape and to really shift the excess weight. But I was never completely successful or satisfied. I came across RNT through facebook. A friend of mine was training with RNT and her results looked amazing. Then it was a case of convincing my husband to join too.
We both embarked on the RNT journey on 29th Jan 2018. It gave me a regimented approach that worked. RNT’s nutrition plan showed me the importance of prepping on a Sunday for the week ahead. I realised cooking my chicken home for lunch, I could control what I put in and it was way better than buying a “healthy” chicken salad. I started to see the importance of macros and not just focusing on calories. I was always of the mindset that carbs were my enemy and RNT definitely changed that.
Until January, I was almost scared of weights. Unaware of how to use them, I would happily stick to cardio as my workout but obviously never really saw much difference. Doing the full body workout; planned by my RNT coach; I started weight training and was elated to see the difference. I am not yet in bikini body to show off stage but I have come so far; i cant believe it myself.
I think what worked with RNT is that I never felt hungry or deprived. Seeing results week to week motivated me further to keep going and the weekly check-ins just gave me the accountability to work my butt off.
It was tough breaking away from old habits but it was all worth it in the long run. I never thought I could lose 15kg in 5 months. I am not near my end goal but this is definitely a perfect start to my journey.
