Our community will know I love telling a story of transformation and inspiration. Today I am too proud of Ravi Reddy’s achievements.
I have been sitting on the “Ravi” story for a while now but today when he broke into single figures and weighed in at 99kgs for the first time since 1999.
He posted this today on the Sleekgeek Facebook group … (Which is where all the Sleekgeek action happens.. join us there)
To put things into perspective that was when he was 16 years old! So for Ravi’s adult life he has not been under 100kgs. So it is a proud moment in the Sleekgeek community. I want to celebrate that.
We has lost a total of 43kgs since November 2011 and 18kgs of those in the Sleekgeek Winter Warrior Challenge.
A story of SUPPORT, motivation and perseverance. It is a wonderful example of how you can get what you want in life if you fight hard enough.
Ravi is leading by example and his actions will have the Sleekgeek ripple effect and inspire others.
I have a strong personal interest in this story since I had met the “old Ravi” many times and we played “Geek cricket” together on many occasions..
Ravi has promised me that he will write his own account of his story but until we have that, here is some of the latest chapter.
Ravi has lost 40kgs.. he lost the last 18kgs doing the Sleekgeek 8 Week Winter Warrior Challenge. [Enter the 2012 Summer Body here]
Watch this inspirational video clip of me announcing his victory at the Quirk Cape Town offices in front of the all the Quirk stars! I also brought in his trainers from 360training. It was an emotional moment and gives a taste of what Sleekgeek is really about…
My 1-on-1 interview with Ravi so you can hear about the journey from his perspective. He makes it clear that anyone can get the results with dedication and persistence.
I then interviewed him with his trainers from 360training to give you insight into his schedule and what he did…
The Ravi and Elan story ..

This was the “Old Ravi”
This video clip shows Ravi in an office display of bravado showing how many Provitas he can shove into his face while being cheered on by colleagues…
The Quirk and Ravi story
In life you have people who enable you and those that do not. By all accounts Ravi was willed on, supported and loved by the Quirk Stars at their agency…. after visiting them and witnessing their amazing family culture I could see what a support they were..
This is a video testimonial of a range of their staff talking about witnessing Ravi’s incredible journey.
