An "Ice Cold" Revolution
It is the dead of winter. Most people are warm and dry in the comforts of their homes - but there is one interesting human that isn’t. Instead, he is half naked, cutting through the ice so he can jump in the frigid water. What’s even crazier is that he smiles as he does this, knowing that his his polar plunge will be wonderful and peaceful. He’s not a descendant of a different species. He’s not mentally insane. He’s just…. “The Iceman.”
From Guinness World Records To Changing The World
Since discovering a deep connection with the cold, Wim Hof, aka The Iceman, has accomplished countless crazy feats, such as climbing Mount Everest past the “death zone” (~7,500), wearing nothing but shorts and shoes (2007), completing a full marathon in temperatures close to −20 °C (−4 °F) without a shirt on, and setting the Guinness World Record for longest ice bath ever recorded - 1 hour 53 minutes and 12 seconds.
Wim Hof is not part of some sort of alien species - he has simply learned to harness the cold and unleash the power his body already stores. Since 2012, he’s been teaching others to do the same, and it’s creating an incredible amount of positive change around the world.
Now, thousands of people around the world are taking cold showers every morning...and LOVING it! And while Wim Hof still plays a big roll, it’s not all because of the Iceman. It’s mostly due to his breathtaking (no pun intended) method that teaches the average Joe like you to do the same.
Wim has been all over the world appearing on popular media outlets (BBC, Vice, The Joe Rogan Experience, The Tim Ferriss Show, and more). He’s even featured in a scientific textbook as a case study.
In 2012, the Wim Hof Method was created in order to teach everyday people to tap into their “inner fire” and use a combination of breathing techniques and cold water immersion to feel happier, stronger, and healthier in order to live a better life.
His technique uses the power of nature - oxygen and cold water – to help unlock a multitude of benefits, including; increased energy, better sleep, reduced stress, improved sports performance and a stronger immune system.
The method has also been shown to alleviate symptoms of chronic illnesses, mental diseases and other ailments, and as an organisation we are continually working alongside various research institutions worldwide to explore the potential of the Wim Hof Method.
Since 2012, more than 22,000 people have learned his method, and it continues to gain momentum. Everyone from professional athletes and celebrities, to health professionals and everyday people on the street, use it regularly for a variety of reasons.
For the last decade, Wim Hof has been a public figure as well as a scientific mystery. Now, it’s not only his larger-than-life personality but also his method that is beginning to make noise, and impact the world at large.
Since 2017, the Wim Hof team has been travelling around the world - Sydney, London, Berlin, Los Angeles and other major cities – teaching the method to more than 30,000 people... and there are more tours being planned all the time!

Introducing: The WHM Fundamentals Video Course
Our flagship product —the original 10-Week Video Course— is universally loved. After 4 years, with the help of useful recommendations from many in our community, we figured it was time to expand our product line. That is why we are proud to announce our brand new product: the Wim Hof Method Fundamentals Video Course!
With our new version of The Wim Hof Method Fundamentals, we hope to teach people like you how to become stronger, happier, and healthier. This new course is designed to make it easier for people to learn this method and improve their lives.
To be clear: the core principles underlying the Wim Hof Method remain the same: breathing techniques, cold exposure, and mindset. But this is now presented through a more dynamic, interactive, and varied program, split into weekly themes to keep things fresh, and supplemented with fun homework assignments that reinforce your practice.
Your feedback over the years has been carefully evaluated, and incorporated into the new course to make for an easier, better, and more enjoyable overall experience. Alright....enough about that. Let’s get into what’s inside of the new course.
We edited the material from the first course to make sure that it’s more helpful and easier to follow. After teaching thousands of people all over the world, we’ve discovered more efficient ways to make it easier for you, the student.
Now, the course is formated in a way that will allow you to go at your own pace, so you won’t feel overwhelmed or skip ahead. It will be easy for you to stay on track, despite your time commitment.
We also brought in a professional videographer to make the videos as high quality as possible. When you find a quiet place and watch the videos, you will feel like Wim is talking directly to you.
The new course is made up of 10 major themes - Going Deep, Stress Control, Energy Management, Inflammation, Endurance, Longevity, Under Pressure, Spirituality, Creativity and Life Adventure.
These themes were chosen carefully to help you get the most benefits from the advanced breathing and cold exposure techniques.
They’re also meant to show you the diverse benefits that can be derived from this method. The more we teach it, the more hidden benefits we discovery. For example, we’ve helped so many older women around the world find more calmness and serenity. This method has also helped elderly people regain their vitality and energy.
This method is for everybody hoping to gain more peace, strength, and control over their energy and happiness, and each theme will help you get there. The Wim Hof Method is simply a tool, but this tool can open up doors for your life that you didn’t know existed.
It’s YOU who harnesses the power within. It’s YOU who has infinite potential physically, mentally, and spiritually. The Wim Hof Method is a vehicle that can take you wherever you choose to go, and these themes are meant to guide you to your own personal paradise.
More In Depth Education
Each theme will come with videos that follow the theme - a group video, a homework video, a stretching video, and a one-on-one guided breathing video. These videos will help you understand this technique both intellectually and experientially.
These videos look at all angles of these techniques, especially the scientific background. The better you can understand the concepts, the more you will understand when you see all of the positive effects on your body and health.
We know that it can be overwhelming if you don’t know much about the autonomic nervous system, PH levels, and brown fact activation. We’ve simplified everything for you. The more you learn about your body and how it works, the more you’ll be able to work with your body rather than against it. The more you learn about the science, the easier it becomes to work through your challenges. Then, of course, the better you will feel.
Guided Audio Breathing Excercises
You asked and we listened. For the last few years, we’ve got a lot of feedback about the videos. While they’re helpful, it can be challenging to get into the practice while you’re watching a video.
The new course will have audio of breathing exercises so you can listen to it without watching from wherever you want. You can listen alone, with your eyes closed, in nature or at a Wim Hof breath café with your closest friends.
With these video audio files, the method is always with you whenever you need it. We’ve heard stories of fellow Hoffers doing breathing exercises in the bathroom stall when their work day gets stressful. Sounds a bit silly, but it’s much better than getting into an argument with your boss.
Now, you can do the breathing practice. If you are stressed out at the airport after your flight has been cancelled, Wim Hof can be in your pocket and ready to calm you down. . If you’re on the train during your daily commute and feeling like you need four cups of coffee to wake up, this audio guide will come to the rescue. ( offline option will be available soon via our app)
New Homework Videos:
Each week will include a homework video to help you stay accountable and keep track of your progress. You’ll be able to print out the exercises and fill it out as you complete each assignment.
We’ve noticed that, in the past, our students lacked the necessary accountability to go through the course. They would watch the videos, but then have trouble following through with the practice every day.
Now, we know you probably hated homework growing up, but this is by far the most fun and fulfilling homework you’ll ever do. Obviously, if you don’t want to do it, you don’t HAVE to. Nobody is going to force you, but these homework videos are designed to help you. And if you give them a try, you will notice that it helps take your practice to the next level. We are devoted to making this experience as easy and beneficial for you as possible. And these homework videos will accomplish just that.
Professional Yoga Teacher: Meet Mariken!
If you’re not familiar with the Wim Hof Method, it combines a variety of exercises to keep your mind, body, and spirit as healthy as possible.
On top of cultivating the proper mindset, we use three types of exercises to help you improve your quality of life and heal whatever ailment you may be facing.
The first exercise we teach is a breathing technique that will help you go deep and feel energized instantly. Next, we help you retrain your “monkey mind” as well as your nervous system through cold immersion. The third type of exercise is stretching. This helps keep your body’s muscles loose and healthy.
In the last course, Wim taught the stretches. This was great and very beneficial, but let’s be honest, Wim is the “Iceman”! He’s known for his ability to do the unthinkable. To accomplish the unaccomplishable. But so far, he does not hold any Guinness World Records in stretching!
That’s why we hired a professional yoga instructor. We want to show you the best ways to stretch and keep you disciplined during the course, and that’s exactly what you’ll get when you learn from Mariken.
