We finally are internationalizing the Wim Hof Method Academy!
Wim Hof, better known as the Iceman, has achieved many exceptional performances, baffling scientists everywhere. How can someone's body be exposed for so long in such extreme circumstances? How does he not suffer the consequences while others would be in a life-threatening condition. The answer lies in the Wim Hof method. He mirrored himself in hard nature. In nature he learned many things, like influencing his internal thermostat. You can make this possible too because you can reach far more than what you think is possible. As Wim often says: "What I am capable of, anyone can do.”
The training of the Iceman
The trajectory to learn and control the Wim Hof method and to teach others consists of several meetings, divided into three modules. Below you may find an overview of a brief summary of all the modules
Module 1 – Basic Course or WHM 10 week online video course
The 10-week online video course will be equivalent to the basic course as people are not always able to travel so much. It is necessary to have completed the 10-week online course in order to attend the weekend of the Advanced Module.
Module 2 - Advanced Module in the USA, Australia and the Netherlands)
This module consists out of two consecutive days of training on a Saturday and Sunday. The Advanced module consists of a theoretical part and a practical part. In these two days, you will delve deeper into the theory, and practice the exercises (breathing exercises, mind-set, cold exposure and physical exercises). The training will be held by Wim Hof and one of our instructors.
Module 3 - Master Module
The Master Module will be organized in the USA and in Europe and will take a week. Before starting the Master Module, you must have successfully completed the 10-week course and the Advanced Module. At this level, we expect people to have a good level of understanding about the theoretical side of the WHM. We also expect the attendees to control the physical exercises of the WHM. Knowledge of the 3 components of the WHM will be tested and also if you can convey the message clearly. In these days, you will also be challenged in your physical performance. You will be trained by Wim Hof and another instructor.
Coaching skills and teaching skills
To become an instructor, it is important that you can convey a message clearly. Experience or competence in teaching skills is a requirement for becoming a certified instructor.
