Editors' note

Rafa Diez, hailing from Madrid, Spain, carries an inspiring narrative of resilience and passion. Spending his early years intertwined with nature and sports, Rafa’s understanding of movement was deeply ingrained. Later, his life took a turn when a motorcycle accident left him with severe injuries. The long, arduous journey to recovery ignited a new purpose within him.

Rafa’s transformative experience led him to establish Entrenamiento Natural, a movement laboratory. Here, Rafa uses his personal methodology, R10Method, along with other proven techniques like Animal Flow and Functional Range Conditioning, to enhance the mobility and efficiency of his clients. Rafa’s expertise extends to coaching barefoot runners, an extension of his role as the president of the Barefoot Running Society.

Despite his many accomplishments, Rafa’s most significant contribution lies in his approach to teaching movement. His passion for reestablishing the connection between individuals and their innate ability to move is unparalleled. With a focus on control, balance, dynamism, and power, Rafa offers a unique perspective on fitness that extends beyond traditional workouts. He challenges his students to regain control of their movement, a prerequisite he believes is essential before lifting weights or distance running.

Rafa, a Master Instructor since 2015, promotes Animal Flow as a “movement revolution” which facilitates a fun, sensory, and challenging workout. This approach, combined with his commitment to improving health, mobility, strength, and skills, ensures his students can adapt and evolve in their personal movement journey.

Beyond physical movement, Rafa also aims to inspire confidence and lifestyle changes amongst his students, encouraging them to live fully, take risks, and embrace freedom. His teachings can be accessed throughout Spain and globally as he travels, providing instruction and participating in various events and conferences. When not teaching, Rafa is often found indulging in his love for nature and movement, embodying the philosophy he hopes to instil in others.

  • Movnat Spain Founder
  • Movnat Entrenamiento Natural Master Instructor
  • Spartan Race X Coach
  • Movnat Certificate Trainer
  • Barefoot Runners Society Spain President
  • Vivobarefoot barefoot running Coach
  • Born to Run Coach

While simple, it isn’t easy. Foresighted makes it easier though, regardless of where you are in your journey.  Discover all the free resources available below.
