Scott Carney set off in 2012 to debunk Wim Hof and the Wim Hof Method. Carney an experienced investigative journalist spent most of his career debunking gurus and false prophets. He traveled to Poland to meet the man and learn his methods and expose him. However, instead of debunking Hof he was a convert to the benefits of the cold.
After claiming an ice covered mountain is nothing more than a pair of shorts with Hof, Carney set off on his own Odyssey into basic human physiology. Carney traveled around the world, learning the methods of elite athletes and trainers working with people like Laird Hamilton and Brian MacKenzie. He would learn how we as humans can tap into our own inner strengths.
