Everyone can participant at their own level but if you have any form of problems regarding your health, especially when it comes to the cardio vascular system or high blood pressure, please contact me in before hand. I also advise you to check with a physician in advance just to be sure.

HOW TO PREPARE:

You can prepare for the ice bath by getting a little familiar with the cold beforehand by taking cold showers. Start with showering hot as long as you like and then end with 1 minute on cold. You can also try to go from hot to cold, from cold to hot and play around with it back and forth. Just make sure that you're listening to your body and that no force is involved. Experiment, feel and observe how your body is reacting. Don't put your head under.

  • Towel
  • A snack/light lunch
  • Waterbottle
  • Flip-flops (optionary)

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:

"”I have used this method together with things like better sleep and dieting to improve my health, loose 120 pounds and transform my life. I booked my place at the instructor program four days after trying the method for the first time. I knew very early that this was what I wanted to do and after taking my health into my own hands, I am now teaching other people how they can use this method to improve their own unique situation as well. With this workshop I combine my passion for teaching with a life long wish of traveling to Australia. Can't wait!”"
