August’s App of The Month: Wim Hof Method

5th August 2020

After hearing about it in an audiobook, our Senior Software Engineer, Ste Martin, downloaded ‘Wim Hof Method.’ This is August’s App of the Month. 

So what is the Wim Hof Method?

The Wim Hof Method itself is a powerful natural training tool, centred around guided breathing techniques. It addresses both the under-stimulation of the body, and the over-stimulation of the mind. When practised consistently, the techniques afford optimal vitality and are believed to help ward off disease. However, as with anything, it takes time, effort and dedication to turn anything into a habit. This is where the Wim Hof Method app comes into play.

The app has been built to aid the reprogramming of your nervous system for less stress and a better immune system. Even more so it’s been designed to promote consistency by adding structure to your practice. The app has been built to be available to you anywhere, anytime. With all the content downloadable to your phone, ready to use offline, you can benefit from the Wim Hof Method in any corner of the world.

What notable features does the app have?

The Wim Hof Method app doesn’t just stop at guiding your breathing practises. It also offers you the platform to time your sessions with the integrated stopwatch; log your breathing and exercise results, and track our progress on the in-app calendar and bar graph. 

With introductory videos and educational resources, the app is available on both Android and iOS. Unbelievably, it’s also free. Having used it every day since downloading, all that Ste would ask for is finer controls for the tempo for breathing. Occasionally he finds himself needing to go a little quicker than it allows. Maybe that’s a suggestion for the app developers to note.

The final verdict?

Ste has hailed the app ‘Superb!’ and has given it a five-star rating. If you want to try the Wim Hof Method for yourself, you can download it from Google Play here, or the App Store here.
