What is the Wim Hof Method?
The Wim Hof Method is a powerful and unique method, comprised of three pillars; breathing, exposure to cold and commitment (focus/mindset). It is the combination of all three elements that enables you to influence your body and achieve things you previously thought beyond your reach.
Several scientific studies have found proof of the positive effects of the Wim Hof Method and research is ongoing to study the many effects and causes.
Wim Hof in the media
Long before the VICE documentary, Wim Hof’s extraordinary feats of endurance including staying submerged in ice for extended periods of time and running a half marathon barefoot above the arctic circle, put him in the media spotlight.
However, thanks to the popularity of the documentary (which has +3.5 million views), more and more people have discovered the “Iceman” and his life-changing Wim Hof Method.
