Improve athletic performance

To improve your athletic performance, you need to practice both your physical and mental skills. By physical skills, we mean elements such as strength and speed. The term strength is the ability to generate and absorb maximum force. By the term speed, we mean the ability to move with great rapidity. This is where the Wim Hof Method comes in handy. The method includes many benefits for you to experience:

Increased sports performance training
Sports performance training is tailored to your specific needs for a particular type of sport. Benefits of the Wim Hof Method include improved cardiovascular health and increased muscular endurance, which are advantageous when improving your athletic performance.

Faster workout recovery
Taking the time to recover from a workout is just as important as working out itself. But how do your muscles recover faster after a workout? Get more sleep, eat enough protein to repair muscle tissue, and stay hydrated. Learn how to commit to these principles by practicing the Wim Hof Method and benefit from a faster workout recovery.

Mental skills are just as critical as physical skills when it comes to improving your athletic performance. There are a lot of different mental elements that contribute to increasing your athletic ability. Some examples are:

Boost concentration
To get to most out of your workout, you need to focus. But when you experience concentration problems, you might not be able to get the results you want. Most concentration problems are stress-related. Not only is stress bad for your concentration, but it is also very harmful to your health in general. The Wim Hof Method teaches you the techniques that help you regain your focus to get the full benefit from your sports training.

Increase willpower
Willpower and self-control are essential for a successful improvement in your athletic performance. It helps resist distraction and keeps you going, no matter how difficult and challenging the situation sometimes seems. By practicing the exercises used in the Wim Hof Method, we believe that you can train your brain to increase willpower and therefore boost your athletic ability.

After 8 months of daily Hoffing, puffing and cold showers I can claim to be cured of my 5 year burnout. Not having had a single cold or flu, my sore knee is working perfectly again, which was very painful the last 2 years. It is like a miracle, and I’m really grateful that our paths crossed.

I would have paid $10,000 for this, but that would not be enough because this has changed my life. I feel like I have taken Valium yet am supercharged. As a clinical psychologist my days can be very stressful. There is a stillness inside me now, and what I am really amazed by is the peace lasts.

I started the Wim Hof method in October of 2018, and now the holes I had in my brain are gone. My neurosurgeon was so impressed by the scans that he told me I don't have to come back anymore. I take this as proof that this method works to regenerate brain tissue.
