This episode's guest is my long time friend Rua Gilna from Bua Fitness.
Rua Gilna has over 14 years of experience in the Fitness Industry in roles ranging from training elite level athletes, training the average Joe, managing prestigious gyms, consulting in difficult injury rehab cases and leading education for teams of 30+ trainers to designing and lecturing on Europe's highest level training certification courses.

He has a background in martial arts, gymnastics, breakdancing and yoga among other things. His passion for helping people stems from his own journey through fitness and the confidence it gave him and his desire to help as many people live life pain free and to the fullest.
On this episode Rua and I discuss:

- Rua talks about his experience of when Ron Hruska put an appliance in his mouth, and the sensory impact this had on him

This was a great discussion with Rua and I hope you guys really enjoy it.
