Wim ' The Iceman' Hof

Wim Hof is a Dutch athlete known as "The Iceman" for his ability to withstand extreme cold. He has received global recognition and fame through his extraordinary achievements. Wim is convinced that everyone is capable of doing the same exceptional things his body allows him to do. Wim’s story and philosophy is completely unique and refreshing for any audience. He demonstrates an unparalleled perseverance and encourages other people that they too can do exceptional things.

He has developed the Wim Hof Method - a combination of breathing exercises, cold exposure and commitment - that gives you the tools to take control over your body. He has set out to spread the potential health benefits of his breathing techniques, working with scientists around the world to prove that his techniques work. 

Over the years, Wim Hof has put several extraordinary achievements in his name, including 26 Guinness World Records. Highlights include swimming underneath ice for 66 meters and climbing to 6.700 meters altitude at Mount Everest wearing nothing but shoes and shorts.

The Wim Hof Method is built on three pillars:

  1. Breathing
  2. Cold Exposure
  3. Commitment.

Together they form a powerful method that is capable of changing your life. The Wim Hof Method is can relieve symptoms of several diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, asthma, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and several more autoimmune diseases.

What Wim is capable of was long viewed as scientifically impossible. But, after running several tests, scientists couldn’t but admit that Wim and others are able to voluntarily influence the Autonomic Nervous System. Something which up until then was thought impossible. ​ 

Wim’s story and philosophy is completely unique and refreshing for any audience. He demonstrates an unparalleled perseverance and encourages other people that they too can do exceptional things.
