Rob Hartman is a performance and stress resilience expert. He has travelled all over the world studying the nervous system and its relationship to our health and performance levels; training with neuroscientists, yogis, shamans, stress experts and researchers in the United States, India, Indonesia, and Peru.
Through his advanced breathing and body techniques, Rob has helped people transform their lives by getting to the root cause of most issues – stress. He has trained executives, lawyers, medical doctors, yoga teachers, physical therapists, martial artists and champion poker players. Rob has also trained dozens of veterans and military members with PTSD and trauma, helping them recover from brain injuries and increase their performance in combat.
Rob also maintains a career in cybersecurity/warfare. Since 1997, he’s designed security systems for supercomputers, space platforms, and missile defense. He has worked with clients in the US defense, civilian and intelligence sectors of the U.S. government and also designed the first computer security strategy for the Costa Rican government. He graduated with an MS in technology management from George Mason University School of Business.
While he was working in cyber security and warfare, Rob felt completely burnt out and was in poor health. He decided to make a drastic lifestyle shift and learn techniques that would help him become resilient to everyday stressors. In 2009, Rob began a quest to research these techniques that led him on a global endeavor to study with Wim Hof (a.k.a The Iceman), to travel to Bali to study with Elizabeth Gilbert’s medicine woman, and learn from medical doctors and a Peruvian shaman.
Rob’s workshops focus on harnessing the Wim Hof Method for increased performance, immune system function, and reduced stress.
