Famous Dutchies - Wim Hof aka The Iceman
As an expat in the Netherlands you want be able to join the lunchtime conversations at work. Which is why I am explaining about famous Dutchies, this time: Wim Hof also known as ‘The Iceman’.
Who is Wim Hof?
Wim Hof (born in Sittard, 1959) known for his spectacular records, most involving cold and ice. He has several records for standing in ice or an ice bath starting from 30 minutes to almost 2 hours. He has walked up the Mount Everest - barefoot! And swam under the ice at the Northpole, every ‘normal’ person would likely die from this, but Wim Hof not!
Wim Hof method
According to the Iceman, he is not the only one who can do this. As long as you breathe well and practice his Wim Hof method a human can do way more than it things.
I think Wim Hof is a fascinating person, to read learn more about him and his method check out his website Wimhofmethod.
