Armеd together with his mоttо “whаt I аm succesful оf, еvеrуbоdу саn lеаrn”, Wim Hof іѕ соnvіnсеd that еvеrуоnе can tар іntо thеіr іnnеr potential wіthоut hаvіng tо make investments thе similar dесаdеѕ wоrth оf ѕtudу, trаvеl аnd dаrіng.

To show that any human can be taught his strategies, Wim provided to show Matt Shea and Daisy-Might Hudson to climb a freezing chilly mountain of their shorts with out getting chilly. However when Matt and Daisy signed up for the coaching, that they had no concept that the so-called Iceman was planning to steer them on a psychedelic journey throughout Europe that circled the chasm between science, spirituality, and thriller.

    Call him aquaman

  2. Hi Hof why do you look 10 years older than your real age?

  3. Dr. Bill says:

    I had a cold shower recently, and right after she finally said Yes. Wim Hof is a super human. I’m doing my best. Start with an ice cube on your forehead .😊.

  4. Jason Mongan says:

    My father has had crohns disease for the past 17 years, he suffers serious chronic pain all the time, he also wears a drainage bag for an abscess in his stomach, I am wondering will mr. Hofs exercises help him, bear in mind my father had a heart attack two and a half years ago, he went through a triple bypass, also he is 64 years old so would it be safe to do. Any advice would be appreciated, thank you.

    Yall white people are limitless when it comes to crazy, yall really do think no harm can come to you.

  6. Matheus 97 says:

    I want a breath motherf#%ker t-shirt now

  7. Steal the ancient technique and don’t even give credit to where he got that from !! Lol well still good start for people of west !! And, respect to the great nature and the bhairava !! Existence 🌎🌎

  8. I wish I could pay for a retreat of some kind to experience the wim hoff method in person. Hopefully one day after this virus subsides, I can go to one of his In person experiences

  9. 28:58 this is exactly the problem every "enlightened" person has had. Jesus said, "as I do, so will you, and more." Buddah said a bunch of these things before jesus said them. We are all asking, "how do we get there" when we are already there. It's the cosmic giggle. That's exactly what he means when he said "you're the king, shes the queen" The problem dude has is the same problem that one apostle that walked on water and then started sinking had.

  10. Anne Knowles says:

    Your son is a genius!! Like his father

  11. Anne Knowles says:

    I love your truth it is all our truth and you are a blessing

  12. He may be a superhuman…
    …still he has chicken legs.

  13. Open Link says:

    6:55 why is this so hilarious?

  14. Consciousness is fundamental. Material is derived from consciousness. So you can effect material with our consciousness. You do that every day. Lift your arm and thats it.
    Consciousness can modify future probability. Thats also proven and is calles placebo effect.

    More information from Tom Campbell. He developed a theory of everything.

  15. This guy is truly inspiring

  16. Ethan Dudash says:

    Love is my mission, too. ❤

  17. joe dispenza, Dawson church, wim hofman. DIfferent words but describing the same <3

  18. Enough "theories", get him in the Mayo clinic or I'm not buying it.

  19. This guy is like a GOD to me now

  20. Yako Bako says:

    Vice: posts same video 5 years later

  21. Accepting Wim Hof as your leader is like asking Gaahl to teach you. You completely missed the point!
    Does Vice hire anyone who can think for themselves or only people who act like a sponge?

  22. 15:00 i think they were doing much longer exercises than the normal ones. Am I right?

  23. Vice trying to get the clicks in before going bust!!

  24. S M says:


    I've been doing his breathing more for more than two months and thought it was bullshit. The only reason I did it was because it seemed to make me sleep quicker. One day, I woke up early in the morning. It had rained the whole night before so when I got into the shower, I expected the freezing cold water to knock my breath out like it usually does. However, I was standing there, like as if I was bathing in lukewarm water. I could feel the cold, but no pain, no heavy breathing, no shivering, no nothing.

    I went from a guy who used to take less than a minute bath in freezing cold water to taking 15 minute long baths in the freezing cold water.

    I'm going to continue to do this and see where it takes me. I'm a very skeptical guy by nature but that was the first time I saw the direct application of Wim's method. Try it. It's free. Just do his breathing exercise before you go to sleep. He recommends it twice a day, when you wake up, and before you sleep. Maybe I should try it when I wake up too and see if more positive changes occur.

  25. SGT FLVCO says:

    to anyone who does not believe in this just think about when wim was injected with the toxin why he didnt catch symptoms or why his temperature doesnt change when hes in ice for hours!

  27. ziggy morris says:

    I’v been doing this since the early 90’s, didn’t know I could have been famous lol

  28. SAHIL Sehra says:

    This is not wim hoff method….this is type of ancient Indian practice – yoga …..deep breathing like he is doing and then cold water ….we have some lord Shiva devotees here in India …who spend there whole life in Himalayas

  29. Bossman says:

    how do i get this guy to teach me serious

  30. Does this guy do any classes and train with him to deal with the cold?
