The BAFTA-winning naturalist, explorer, writer, and television presenter is a big admirer of how Wild Training personalise your gym experiences.

Steve Backshall said: “If you want to make first ascents of Himalayan Mountains, or first descents of whitewater Rivers – how much you can bench press is totally irrelevant; you need practical, focused training.

“Wild Training is exactly tailored to your needs, punishing, innovative and best of all, fun.

“For me, it’s the perfect physical training regime.”
