About us

What is the Wim Hof Method?

The Wim Hof Method is characterized by its simplicity of implementation and a scientifically sound follow-up. It is a practical method to become happier, healthier and more energetic.

Over the years, we human beings have developed different attitudes towards nature and have forgotten our inner power. Our bodies have the ability to adapt naturally to extreme temperatures and survive in our natural environment. The Wim Hof method is based on these universal principles.

Today, we wear clothes and artificially control temperatures in our homes and workplaces. We have reduced the natural stimulation of our body by atrophying the very ancient mechanisms of our vital and survival functions. Because these physiological mechanisms are no longer solicited as before, our bodies are no longer in contact with this inner power. This inner power is a powerful force that can be reactivated by stimulating these physiological processes using the Wim Hof method.

More about Wim Hof - The ICEMAN

Iceman Wim Hof

Wim Hof holds the nickname of ICEMAN because of his many records related to the cold.

You can remember your ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro and Everest (7830 mt) in shorts or run a half-marathon barefoot at the Arctic Circle and stay immersed in an ice cube tray for over 112 minutes.

By accepting the majestic power of nature, Wim Hof decided to share his discovery with the whole world. He is convinced that everyone is able to exploit their own potential without having to invest the same decades of study, travel and challenges. That is why he developed the Wim Hof Method, which represents a natural path to an optimal state of his body, mind and spirit.

Wim Hof's extraordinary achievements

Wim Hof or Iceman is known to have accomplished many extraordinary achievements including 21 Guiness Records. His thorough training allows him to control his breathing, his heartbeat, his blood circulation and to withstand extreme temperatures.

Here are some of his most famous accomplishments: 

  • running a half marathon at the Arctic Circle barefoot and in shorts
  • swim under the ice for more than 80 metres
  • to rise on a finger at an altitude of 2000 meters
  • ascent of the world's largest mountain in shorts (Everest)
  • running an entire marathon in the Namibian desert without drinking
  • immersion in an ice box for almost 2 hours

Wim's mantra is" What I am capable of, anyone can learn ».

The Wim Hof method is also transmitted worldwide to professional personalities and athletes to enable them to control their body and mind to accomplish extraordinary things.

They testify to their participation in the Wim Hof Method internships @INSPIRE


François-Xavier Montil

Chief of Staff at the Cantal Departmental Council

"Since 2017, I never put on a T-shirt to go for a run (and I run every week on the road to the ridges), I no longer turn on my hot water tap (and I live in the cantal!), I never took antibiotics again (which never happened to me) because I have no more angina, the frequency as the intensity of my migraines have dropped by 75%.


Brian Rousseau


"I first brought Leonardo into one of my personal development seminars, then participated in a 5-day internship in Cantal. Leonardo is pedagogical, organized and very caring. I look forward to sharing new experiences with him."


Alessandro Grandis

European MMA Champion

"As part of Leonardo's training course for the Italian Special Forces, Leonardo's coaching was professional and allowed me to get to know myself better and better understand my limits, which I thought, before this work with Leo and the cold, would be insurmountable"


Andrea Vitello


"It's an experience that changed my life!"
