In the past five years, the Wim Hof Method has exploded, attracting the attention of science and the media, beating world records, and introducing more people worldwide to its three core tenets: cold therapy, deep breathing, and concentration. Through the author and narrator’s experience of intensive training with Wim in the remote Polish mountains, this text offers a unique and literary insight into the practice of WHM. The author’s personal account is interspersed with physiological explanations of the method, and the voices of those sharing the training. Unique among WHM literature, Ice Apprentice focuses on practice rather than theory.
This is a tale of adventure; of surpassing oneself; of tapping one’s full strength and full potential; and of achieving physical and emotional relief. It offers solace to anyone uncomfortable with the cold, disconnected from nature, or feeling weak, sickly, or depressed; for those already feeling strong, it offers new ways to better your ‘personal best’. As the author discovers, all one needs to benefit from the Wim Hof Method is to have fun in cold water, and breathe deeply.
