Do you want to take control of your health? Reach your full potential? Try something new? Challenge yourself? Expand your knowledge? Be Happy, strong and healthy?
There's a method that has been helping people to achieve all of these things. If one of them resonated with you then maybe this is for you.
Giovanni Bartolomeo is the first certified Wim Hof Method instructor in Canada and is coming to Alternity in Toronto to share some of his knowledge with you.
After watching a VICE episode about the superhuman Iceman, Giovanni's curiosity skyrocketed, once he heard that anyone can learn how to achieve these incredible feats it was something he had to experience for himself. At the next opportunity he went to the Colorado Rockies to train directly with Wim Hof himself and is now dedicated to sharing his knowledge with others.
"At first I just wanted to climb a mountain in my shorts, but after doing the method I realized there was so much more to it. It opened me up on so many levels, physically, emotionally and even spiritually (to my surprise)!"

What is the Wim Hof Method?
The Wim Hof Method is a method that combines specific breathing techniques, cold exposure and mind-set techniques, coupled with physical excercies. It has been developed over the sum of thirty years by Wim Hof, who has taught and developed these in nature. It's a natural method to improve health and well-being.
THE WIM HOF METHOD IS BASED ON THREE POWERFUL PILLARS:
The cold is your warm friend. Exposing your body to it in the right way starts a cascade of health benefits, including the buildup of brown adipose tissue and subsequent fat loss, reduced inflammation to facilitate a fortified immune system, balanced hormone levels, improved sleep quality, and the production of endorphins— the feel-good chemicals in the brain that naturally elevate your mood.
We’re always breathing, yet we’re mostly unaware of its tremendous potential. Heightened oxygen levels hold a treasure trove of benefits, and the specialized breathing technique of the Wim Hof Method unearths them all: more energy, reduced stress levels, and an augmented immune response to swiftly deal with pathogens.
The third pillar is the foundation of the other two: both cold exposure and conscious breathing require patience and dedication in order to be fully mastered. Armed with focus and determination you are ready to explore and eventually master your own body and mind.
