The Wim Hof Method with Lisa Shabbas

by | Mar 24, 2019 | Podcasts On Performance

Lisa Shabbas, a plant based athlete & ultrarunner, talks to us about the Wim Hof Method and her use of it in preparation for the UltraMirage100k she will be running in Tunisia this coming September.

For those of you unaware of Wim Hof, he is a Dutch-born world record holder who under scientific study has shown he can ‘turn his own thermostat up’ and consciously activate his sympathetic nervous system by using his mind. He has 26 world records including longest ice bath (1hr 52 minutes) and longest distance swum under ice (66 meters) under a meter of ice. And it’s not just all about ice – in 2011 he ran a marathon in Namib Desert, Southern Africa (35 degrees during the day) without water!

Lisa Shabbas talks about bringing a Wim Hof Method workshop to our local hometown Brighton (England) and filling us on on her own fascinating past including 8 years in the military, female bodyguard to Katy Perry and natural bodybuilding champion!

Interested in starting YOUR OWN Podcast?

Here’s two things we wish someone had told us when we started:


    Choosing a suitable host company to upload, store & distribute your podcast material will always depend on your individual circumstances & needs. That said, if you’re looking for a company to help your podcast grow, we recommend Podbean. Set up is super easy, as is transferring from a different host. Click HERE for details.
    After trying many ways to do both solo recordings and with guests, we wholeheartedly recommend you try Be.Live online software. It’s the best value, simple to use (for you AND your guest), and has some great tools to brand it as you want. Testing the software is FREE (no credit card recquired). Click HERE for full details.
