Altered States

Wim Hof Fundamentals (4.5 hrs)

Who is "The Iceman"?

Dutch extreme athlete Wim Hof got his nickname by breaking a number of records related to cold exposure, including: climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in shorts, running a half marathon above the Arctic Circle barefoot, and standing in a container while covered with ice cubes for more than 112 minutes.

Using “cold, hard nature” as his teacher, his extensive training has enabled him to learn to control his breathing, heart rate, and blood circulation and to withstand extreme temperatures.

Meet your guide

Hi, I'm Chun. I spent a good part of the last 15 years pushing my body through various activities like wakeboarding, scuba diving, snowboarding, skydiving, triathlons and military training. Eventually it became difficult to maintain the required energy to recover in time and prevent my body from falling apart. At times, my limbs would swell painfully and prevent movement for a few days, which was probably the body's way of slowing me down.

After discovering the Wim Hof method in 2016, this painful response subsided tremendously through constant practice of breathing, cold and mindset conditioning.

I've personally seen how the Wim Hof Method has helped my fellow course participants who have been through dilapidating illnesses and inflammatory issues, or my own friends with long term shoulder and back issues. To me, this is a path with far greater outreach than the simple confines of my self, and I hope that I can play a part in the continuous branching out to help others looking for a way to become stronger, healthier and happier.
