Sports performance training

With sports performance training, you can take your physical and mental fitness to another level. Professional athletes from all over the world, in many different sports, conduct sports performance training to increase their strength, to become faster, to reduce their risk of injury, and to improve their mindset. Sports performance training differs from general fitness, because it is specific to a particular sport. The Wim Hof Method includes many components that can be used to improve sports performance. Professional athletes like Laird Hamilton and Alistair Overeem already practice Wim’s principles to stay on top of their game.

Benefits of sports performance training

Without sports performance training, becoming the best in your particular type of sport will be nearly impossible. A good sports performance program is tailored to your specific needs and takes your personal characteristics, such as age, past injuries, and physical fitness, into account. Depending on the type of sport that you perform, proven techniques will be applied to help you increase your strength, speed, agility, stamina, willpower and confidence.

Sports performance training will: - improve your sports performance, while taking your personal characteristics into account - focus on the specific skills that are needed to excel in your type of sport - focus on both physical skills, mental toughness, and nutrition

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
