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!

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...

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.

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...

A few years back I was rushed to hospital with an afib (fast heart beat). After going through many tests, I realized the answers to healing are within us. My search brought me outside of the traditional medical system and I learned about Wim. By doing my daily exercices and taking cold showers...

I led a stressful life with a busy mind and had issues with sleeping. Now I love the cold showers, swimming in the cold North Sea in winter and ice baths. The fundamental course is a perfect investment. It’s a perfect tool to control stress, power up and master the Wim Hof Method online.

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....

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...

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.

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....

I started doing wim hof breathing during a 7 week canoe trip and have never looked back. It has allowed me to overcome chronic fatigue, depression, IBS and several orthopaedic injuries (one which I had been told would never recover without surgery). I share Wim Hof Method with everyone who will...

I was being consumed by day to day situations with work and personal relationships. I discovered the Wim Hof Method as support for a changing lifestyle. The most powerful use I have found for the breathing method is for hiking in altitude; it has helped me conquer Kilimanjaro and Elbrus. Anyone...

I started with cold exposure 7 years ago. I wanted to upgrade my skills as a long distance runner. I am so happy that 3 years ago I started the Wim Hof Method. Since I am doing Wim Hof Method I haven't been sick at all and my running results are far better than before.

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.

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.

A friend told me about the Wim Hof Method and I tried the breathing. I felt that this was what I was looking for. Cold showers were the most challenging for me. I kept going and after 3 months my chronic pain decreased. What I love the most about this method is that Wim doesn’t make a...

I started to practice the Wim Hof Method a year ago and now start each day with the breathing exercise and a bath in an outside pool - all year long. This ritual gives me a perfect start and relieves me from stress, no matter how hard the day is ahead of me. I feel more relaxed, confident and...

I discovered Wim Hof after listening to the Russel Brand podcast and was intrigued about how such an ‘ancient meets modern’ technique might be able to help me with both my mental and physical health. As well as noticing benefits to my mood and slowly getting used to the cold...

I have been taking cold showers almost every morning for 2 years. It gives me a good feeling starting my day with a victory, even though it is not something I always find pleasant. It is an exercise that helps you the rest of your life, with stress, panic and fear. I recommend it to everyone...

I've been suffering from headaches & migraines for 30 years. I came across Wim Hof and in the following weeks the pain attacks were reduced and for the last 3 months I haven't had any severe headaches. After decades of pain I have discovered the power to heal myself. This...
Benjamin Testimonial Wim Hof
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.

I have Psoriasis and have been doing WHM breathing for 3 years now. It’s like a light switch for me. If I’m doing WHM, no psoriasis. If I stop, it comes back. If I restart, it goes away again. It’s a miracle! It’s also made a big step improvement to allow me to get to...
