Where is it that we find the most growth? It is not from doing what we always do or staying in our comfort zones. It almost always happens at the point of a personal challenge. As most of you know I am 13 weeks into recovery from a major shoulder surgery. In this we found numerous complications so my physical activity for the past 3 months has been almost non existent. I share this for one reason only – FEAR!
I have the opportunity to attend an exclusive breathing clinic being held by one of my favorite practitioners, Coach Brian Mackenzie. To top it off he is having Mr. Wim Hof as the special guest for the all day session. If you do not know Wim, please watch the quick video below. He is the global leader in breathing technics to improve athletics, stress reduction and healing.
I don’t mean some late night infomercial scam, I mean the guy has worked with the scientific leaders from around the world to validate, measure and document his approach.
Did I mention that I am scared? Afraid – like my stomach is nervous as hell to attend and participate. Needless to say, this journey is for me and the things I will learn will be un measurable in value. As much as this post is about the importance of breathing, it is more so on overcoming your fear to find growth. Today – challenge yourself to do something uncomfortable.
More to come when I return from the experience.

The ability to breathe is something that most people take for granted until they are in a situation when breathing becomes difficult. Whether its induced by stress or health issues, restricted by water or metabolic capacity, all of us have been to that place where we realize we are limited by our ability to breathe. What if you could learn how to be a better breather and open up more athletic, health and all around wellness as a result?
This camp is for anyone that wants to learn more about breathing, open up more athletic potential towards breathing, learn how to deal with stress, increase recoverability, and have a better overall awareness of you’re ability.
Who is Wif Hof and why should you care?
