Here’s what others have said after completing the Fundamentals course.

Matthew, Australia

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.

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.

Michael, Canada

I took the course to help with my depression. Life is different now because Wim taught me the beauty in it. That deep inside there is a light within us all. When I stop practising, life can get hard but when I do a few rounds it brings tears and bliss! Cold showers make me feel strong and...

Erik, USA

I chose the Fundamentals course because I wanted to learn the how and the why to the method. The biggest change I noticed is my mindset. Instead of reading the thermometer and cringing, I see it as an opportunity to endure some short-term discomfort for long-term health benefits.

Witske, The Netherlands

The reason I started the course is because I was curious about the effects it would have on my arthritis and my energy level. To my surprise the arthritis in my hands totally disappeared and my energy level went over the roof. Every morning my husband and I do the WHM and we feel so...

Oskar, USA

After my week in Poland, I decided to jump into the Fundamentals course. I wanted to go more in depth of what we are capable of doing if we commit to something, and learn how much our body is capable of accomplishing. Spiritually, my mind and body have been at their best stage in my entire life....

Heather, UK

Doing the Wim Hof Fundamentals Course was one of the best things I’ve ever done. I did it to test my commitment level to pushing myself even when nobody was watching. Ultimately the end result of sticking to the daily practices enabled me to use what I learned not only in my pursuit of...

Johnny, UK

The Wim Hof Method has now been part of my daily routine for over 2 years and the transformation has been amazing. My anxiety levels have reduced significantly and I now lead a much more fulfilling life where I regularly take on challenges I would never have dreamt possible.

Dion, USA

This man literally changed my life for the better and I will tell anybody and everybody this! My picture was taken after completing the Fundamentals course. Pretty good for a 50 year old.  

Petri, Finland

I have been doing Wim Hof Method 2+ years. I started the Fundamentals course because I wanted to deepen my practice. I had a burnout and problems with my lower back and health in general. It was possible for me to get off all the painkillers after the first week and haven't needed them since....

Jason, Canada

I was trying to overcome debilitating depression and anxiety. Depression is gone and anxiety for the most part under control. I changed my career and pursued a much more meaningful endeavour that I enjoy, my connection to family and friends are deeper. I am much more aware &...

Jerzy, Poland

I started the Wim Hof Method Fundamentals course to boost my immune system. It helped a lot during the last two winters. No flu, no cold. When it comes to boosting the immune system it is a great outcome for relatively light effort and I also have a better attitude to everyday life.

Leona, Czech Republic

I started the Fundamentals course because I wanted to get healthier in general plus experience something new and challenging. I fell in love with the Wim Hof Method and am breathing and cold bathing regularly. I love the combination of breathing, cold exposure and exercising.


After learning about Wim, I bought the Fundamentals course and started on an amazing journey. This course made me aware of my limited time left on this planet and that there was no excuse not to get started, so I jumped right in! I’ve realised I’m able to lift my spirits and energy...

Erlend, Norway

I started the Fundamentals course as I was interested in building cold tolerance. The 10 min cold shower was a strange experience. I was just really surprised that this would be doable. I think also just getting so used to the cold seemed to make me more present. Since completing the course...


My Fundamentals course experience introduced me to another life: The breath technique became more like a ritual for me. I can now stay in near-freezing water for minutes. I feel no cold, I feel amazing and relaxed. It helps me to connect my brain to the body and to be connected with the Earth,...
