Wim Hof

There are only a few people in this world to have a 'method' named after them. The Wim Hof Method, and the man behind it, are game-changing and rule-breaking in equal measure.

In this conversation with Fearne, The 'Ice Man' talks about the tragic circumstances that brought him to this epiphany - and the lives he has changed since then.
