What is the Wim Hof Method?
"The Wim Hof Method is about reconnecting us - to ourselves, to others and to nature." - Wim Hof Method Website
Wim Hof has accomplished physical feats of human endurance that before him, seemed near impossible. Nicknamed “The Iceman,” Hof has run a half marathon above the Arctic Circle wearing nothing but shorts. He has hung on one finger at an altitude of 2,000 meters and swam under ice for 66 meters. Holding 21 Guinness World Records, Hof has helped advance scientific research into the connection between mind and body (1).
Said the Iceman himself “I’m not afraid of death, I’m afraid not to have lived fully.” A pillar of Pinnacle Lifestyles ideals, balance, and living a full life is paramount to our happiness. But how does the Wim Hof Method have an effect on our happiness? There are 3 pieces to the Wim Hof Method: cold therapy, breathing, and commitment. It is said that these three things can unlock a number of benefits including increased energy, better sleep, reduced stress levels, heightened focus & determination, increased willpower, a stronger immune system, and much more (2).
Many members of the Pinnacle Lifestyles team employ the Wim Hof Method in their daily lives. A quick cold shower in the morning, focused breathing techniques on a lunch hour and daily commitment have influenced many who have chosen to use the Wim Hof Method in a positive way.
