Podcast Opening:

Welcome to HardWodder Radio Episode 22. I am Jason Archer… founder of HardWodder, creator, freedom seeker, leader of self and this tribe of those giving all they have for all they want… and today we’re talking with Michael Roviello about his path from the Navy to seeking total wellness.

So, turn up the volume, put down the distractions and let’s kick this off…


Quote: “Benefits and pension, benefits and pension… that’s kind of all I heard growing up. Nobody ever talked about like hey what are you passionate about, what do want to do, what do you want to learn, what do you want to give to your community, humanity… there was none of that talk. It was benefits and pension.”

Michael is a New York native, now residing in Arizona. He is a twice decorated Naval Aviation Warfare Vet, Plant Medicine advocate, Wim Hof instructor and owner at Optimyze, a newly constructed wellness center here in the valley.

His journey is an interesting one… hailing from a single parent home of 4 kids, Michael sought a way out of his environment by going into the service where he excelled and won 2 medals before retiring and entering civilian life.
A successful guy, he began to search for meaning by filling his life with things and seeking status, but along the way an injury would open his eyes to the world of alternative medicine, ultimately guiding him toward certifications with Wim Hof and plant medicine ceremonies which opened him up to new levels of introspection.
This is a must hear episode.
