Who Is Wim Hof?

Who Is Wim Hof?

Better known as The Iceman, Wim Hof is a Dutch athlete and creator of the method that bears his name.

Why The Iceman? You may be wondering. This nickname was given to him because of his extraordinary ability to withstand temperatures that go well beyond freezing!

Being the holder of over 20 Guinness World Records, (including climbing Mount Everest in shorts!) he gained much popularity across the world, and helped millions of people.

The Wim Hof Method

The Wim Hof Method

The method consists of 3 fundamental pillars

  • Cold therapy happens through doing cold showers and ice baths in a controlled way: the breath should always remain controlled and slow.
  • Breathing: Take 40-50 deep breaths, at the last one exhale fully. After exhaling hold your breath as long as you can but remember to keep it controlled. After holding, take a deep breath and hold again for 15 seconds, before exhaling again.
  • Commitment: These exercises will provide extraordinary results if performed regularly over time. Keeping track of progress helps you stay motivated.

Getting Started

Getting Started

  • Start small. For example: take a 10 seconds cold shower at first, then, gradually increase the time as you become more comfortable with it.
  • Make it a habit. These exercises aren't simple to do at first, therefore that's why it's easy to quit. Make it a habit to do cold showers and breathing exercises
  • Trust the process. Even if you don’t see results at first, I can guarantee you will later on.
  • Like Wim said: “Just take the damn cold shower!” Don’t be scared, don’t wait for the perfect time to get started, because it is now.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone
