Welcome back to another episode of RNT Fitness Radio, and today I’m joined by one of our members of the RNT Family based Stateside, Stazie Hyslop. Stazie’s been on one hell of a journey with us so far, and if you ever wanted to hear our mission of using the physical as the vehicle for the greater good in action, Stazie’s story epitomises this. Having battled with clinical depression and anxiety for over 20 years, Stazie talks about her road to recovery, and how dropping 50lbs through 2019 has been a huge catalyst in giving her a new outlook in life. In fact, Stazie is also the co-author of the book ‘I Defeated Depression’, which details her spiral into depression and ultimately her amazing recovery. She wrote the book with her Dad who gives his perspective as the parent and how he and his wife helped with her recovery. The authors have used the pen names Samantha and Richard Olivier in order to protect the identities of the characters. The book is available on Amazon and in all good book shops, and I’ve linked it in the show notes today for those interested. For now though, let’s dive into Stazie’s story! ‘’What’s the difference between a diet and a transformation?
