What is the Classic Course?

Filmed in and around Wim’s cabin in snowy Poland, the Classic 10-week course is the first video course we created.

It’s a no-frills exploration into the Wim Hof Method, with the creator, Wim Hof, as your companion and guide.

Week-by-week you’ll explore & experience the effects of the breathing technique, cold therapy & mental commitment for yourself.

As Wim likes to say “Power is within us all. Anything can be overcome by going within.” And that’s what the Classic course is all about - journeying within - to learn how you can take back control over your body and mind, naturally.

Here's what you will learn

The Classic 10-week video course is built around the three pillars of the Wim Hof Method - breathing, cold exposure and commitment (focus) - with lessons and exercises designed to enhance your understanding of each pillar as you move through the online course.


  • Reach profound levels of relaxation
  • Feel energized within minutes
  • Reduce inflammation & improve recovery
  • Experience deep meditative states, quickly

Cold therapy

  • Decrease stress and feel more relaxed
  • Build your resilience and overcome fear


  • Activate the body to free the mind

Make a start and feel the benefits of the Wim Hof Method today.


The Classic 10-week video course include some helpful features to make it easier and more enjoyable for you to learn the Wim Hof Method.

Weekly Wim-spiration

The Classic video course increases in intensity week-on-week, allowing your mind and body to adjust to the increasing stimulation, letting you find your own limits through a more self-guided approach.

To help broaden your experience and build out your practice, each week either introduces a new, or varies an existing exercise across these three themes:

  • Breathing
  • Cold shower
  • Physical/Focus

You can reinforce what you’ve learnt and build your practice into a sustainable, positive habit with the additional homework assignments.

I have severe arthritis in my left hip. By implementing the Wim Hof Method in my daily life, I can deal with this without getting surgery. I love Wim’s purity. His coaching inspires me and gives me energy. I’m almost 66 years old and by practicing the Wim Hof Method I feel much more...

For 12 years now I have had rheumatism. Thanks to the Wim Hof Method I have been able to halve the amount of anti-inflammatory drugs. My goal is to completely stop the use of anti-inflammatory drugs after finishing the video course.

I am 52 years old, and after 10 weeks of the Wim Hof Method I am in the best shape I have ever been. I did 30 push-ups as a test before I started the course, and when I finished I did 100 push-ups for the first time in my life. The Wim Hof Method gives you a good mood, it’s addictive!

It’s only been 4 weeks since I started, but the results are remarkable! Thank you from the heart for changing my life, my health, and my understanding about my own power and the influence I have on this. I’m looking forward to a nice cold winter in the Netherlands.

Learning Wim’s method is like studying from one of nature’s best students. My life long fear of cold is history. I now fully enjoy cold immersions, but the benefits are not limited to cold. I am now a better person and a happier being. I smile when facing life challenges.
Gregor Testimonial Wim Hof
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.

Wim I hope to train with you someday. I love to jump into that cold water and climb that mountain with you. Your method has truly helped me with psoriatic arthritis. I am no longer taking Humira injections for my symptoms. I am controlling it with breathing, cold showers and ice baths.

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.
Per Kristian, Testimonial Wim Hof

After 3 weeks of daily practicing my medication (Naproxen) for long-standing sciatica has been cut by 80%, and my arm pain and 'pins and needles' following a neck injury 50 years ago has been halved!
Arthur, Testimonial Wim Hof
Arthur, USA
I got anxiety 2+ years ago, and have had panic attacks every day since. Medicine helped a little. I came across your videos and started to walk my 2 miles a day in only a t-shirt at 20F degrees. Within 2 weeks my anxiety went away! I found it to be a miracle.

I’ve had astonishing results battling addiction with the Wim Hof Method. It has saved my life and is the only thing that worked on getting clean and healthy. I go ahead and get my suffering over with in the cold showers, so I don't have to suffer throughout the day. Pretty good trade to...

Cardiac and respiratory arrest began my life. Heart defect and cleft palate pushed diseases. Depression, lack of self-efficacy, and post traumatic stress disorder followed. The Wim Hof Method frees me: I am twenty-nine years old, and I love to live. Thank you!

Grant, Australia
I was born with Spina Bifida, and was told I would end up in a wheelchair. After incorporating the Wim Hof Method into my daily life I have begun to see results in my pain levels and athleticism. I am no longer looking down the barrel of becoming a paraplegic, and I attribute that in part to the...

Raúl, The Netherlands
From the 90s to 2012 I developed hayfever symptoms and had to take daily medications in order to cope. The effect of these medications only lasted for several hours. By using the Wim Hof Method training daily, my body has conquered hayfever symptoms since 2013.
Benjamin Testimonial Wim Hof
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.
