Today on The Mindvalley Show, we explore the connection between mental and physical transformation. Our guests are Yasir Khan and Ronan Oliveira, two dynamic fitness experts who transformed from humble beginnings to excel in the field of full body transformation. 

Yasir is the founder of TWB Gym in Dubai, a revolutionary approach to fitness that incorporates nutrition, stoicism, and personalized workouts that facilitate a complete metamorphosis of the subconscious.

Ronan Oliveira is the head of Mindvalley’s Health and Fitness and co-creator of our 10x program. He shares how growing up in fitness-obsessed Brazil influenced his approach to health and shaped his journey to creating a program that has helped over 300,000 people. 

In this episode, we discuss the mindset needed to develop discipline, habits, and a lifestyle that rewards you with your dream body. Yasir teaches you that fitness goes beyond physical exertion and breaks down the nutritional aspect of his program and how he helps break down the subconscious to rebuild a resilient mind in his clients. 

Join us as we tear down the stereotypes of fitness and discuss a new paradigm of physical and mental discipline.

If you want to improve your life and if you want to transform your life, it’s not about getting the body, it’s about the discipline and the lifestyle, because as I said, I don’t believe there are great people, but there are great habits, so you need to build those habits and that happens slowly.” [41:40] -Yasir Khan
