I’ve been following Wim Hof’s breathing course with some slight modifications for the past 8 weeks. I’d like to say I feel FANTASTIC and it was LIFE-CHANGING, but we all know that’s not true. The course is excellent, however, and it has helped me improve my life.
(Wim Hof’s course added so much value to my life that I’m working on a video course for Gorilla Mindset.)
What have I noticed after 8 weeks of Wim Hof’s breathing course?
I’m more calm and grounded, and also able to quiet my mind much easier than before.
I have zero anxiety when doing public speaking or giving seminars.
I’m slightly stronger in the gym, as Wim Hof’s breathing exercises lower the amount of lactic acid in the body. (You’ll notice that when you do push-ups after using his breathing method. You’ll hit failure, but you won’t feel the lactic acid burn.)
No gurus needed, but Wim Hof is great.
I’m 38, been through a lot of drama in life, and wrote the best mindset book ever. My vision is focused on dialing in my life. Not much is going to change the entire course of my life.
But I can always make steady improvements.
By reminding me of the importance of breathing, I’ve been able to become much more calm.
How I used Wim Hof’s Breathing Course for my Gorilla Mindset Seminar.
Public speaking is listed as one of a person’s greatest fears.
I’ve felt my legs tremble before speaking in front of large audiences.
When I save my first ever Gorilla Mindset seminar in London, I felt some anxiety. Then I reminded myself, “Mike, these people like you. This isn’t a hostile audience to win over. They came out to see you. All you gotta do is show up and not fuck up.”
I still felt a little nervous at first, although the nerves went away once I started talking.
Before my Los Angeles seminar, I felt a bit of anxiety. I did a set of Wim Hof breathing exercises, however, and was calm for the rest of the morning.
Was the Gorilla Mindset seminar a success?
I recently went to a Gorilla Mindset Seminar to get to know Mike a bit better.
I wanted to check his demeanor, his friends, his wife, and decide if this man is congruent with the claims he makes online.
What I found was that he is even better in real life!
He is the real thing, and he’s a really NICE GUY despite all the trolling online!!
He did not try to sell anything to us. Everyone there already had Gorilla Mindset.
He paid for the venue out of pocket and charged us nothing.
He spent the entire time going over the techniques in Gorilla Mindset and answering our questions.
Believe it or not Mike is actually trying to help people!
I highly suggest this book to anyone looking for concrete and practical steps to get better control of their emotions.
Wim’s course is systematic and well-organized.
It’s a 10 week course, and you can’t skip ahead!
During the first week you’re introduced to his breathing method. You also get a bunch of free ebooks and a workbook to fill out.
From there you add in contrast showers, cold showers, long cold showers, push-ups (with your breath held and then with no breath in the lungs), and finally ice baths.
