Your experience is our priority

Everyone can participate to their own ability and level of comfort. It is all about fun, new experiences and learning. If you have any health conditions or concerns please contact us beforehand.

How to prepare:

If you are new to cold exposure, you can start practicing by finishing your warm shower with 30-60 seconds of cold water only. Begin with your feet and then follow with your legs, your stomach, shoulders, neck and back. Focus on calming down your breath. Don’t put your head under the cold shower, it is better to skip the cold shower on the head for the first month. This way you will become more familiar with the way your body reacts to the cold.

Testimonial from Jules Allan is a very nice and patient person. He taught me the magic Wim Hof Method well. Thanks to this day, my technique of breathing has improved. Now it's so easy for me to take a very cold shower. Allan is a good listener also. Thanks again man!
