This article is part of our series “Vocate’s Wall of Fame”. Each person described in the series is someone who has inspired the Vocate team and who we believe represents what “unlocking human potential” means. Quite literally, the Wall of Fame exists in our office (printed out images framed on the wall) and every week we vote on a new honoree.
Wim Hof was born in the Netherlands and grew up in a large family with 8 siblings. He is known for pushing the boundaries of survival and has set 26 world records for withstanding extraordinary conditions. Hof has dedicated his life to pushing human limits by exposure to extreme (inhuman) temperatures. In his work, he developed sophisticated techniques to persevere through severe conditions. Hof’s method combines yoga and meditation techniques which allows him to embrace nature in its most raw and challenging state.
Hof encourages others to embody his courageous lifestyle with his training methods. He challenges the potential of the human body and invented revolutionary means to accomplish what many consider the impossible.
