Train With Stefano

Keep Up




In between harvesting wild pine pollen and trout fishing, I sat down with Daniel at the ReWilding headquarters to discuss my philosophies on being a more capable human. During this fun and wide-ranging conversation, we get into the correlation between movement and cognitive ability, how to stay motivated to train, moving through dynamic and texture-rich environments, unstructured play, forest bathing and much, much more.
