What are the odds that a skinny teenager from Latvia goes on to become a world-class fitness model? What are the odds that that same kid goes on to develop his own fitness methodology and to help others achieve and exceed their health and fitness objectives?
Meet Ru Wikmann, AKA “The Shredded Brainiac” and “The Sculptor”. Ru is a London-based fitness expert, personal trainer, WBFF pro fitness model, and body transformation coach. As you will hear, Ru adds philosophy and mindfulness to his approach to fitness. He is also lots of fun and we get into a wide range of topics in this episode including:
- Growing up in Latvia and moving to the UK;
- Transforming from a skinny kid to a pro fitness model;
- His philosophies on fitness and health, and making changes that will stick;
- Taking risk and risk-taking;
- Knowing your purpose;
- Ru’s fitness app Fitswap;
- Meditation and mindfulness;
- Language and culture;
- Lots more!
