Wim Hof Net Worth (2022 Update): The Cold Method To Success
Dutch extreme athlete Wim Hof believes in the power of ice. With his famous Wim Hof method of cold therapy, he’s mastered how to control his mind and body to achieve a $3 million net worth.
But How Did He Make His Money?
The one thing that’s well-known about ultra high net worth individuals (UHNWs) – the folks worth at least $30 million USD – is that virtually ALL of them have some part of their fortune in real estate. Many of the more famous rich people and “celebrity entrepreneurs” actually got their start in real estate. And that’s great for them! Not so much for us…
See, more millionaires are created during recessions than any other part of the economic cycle. Which is cool, except the last real recession was 2008, when real estate prices were in the tank and you could buy a whole neighborhood with $100,000. Now, though, real estate prices are through the roof, and interest rates are skyrocketing too. So how does the everyday person start building a massive net worth in an economy like this one?
The internet’s been around for decades, but the possibility of actually owning high-value pieces of property ON the internet is fairly new. In other words, it’s a wide open playing field…but it won’t stay that way forever. Here’s a quick summary of how Digital Real Estate works:
You invest a little money (maybe around $100) to either purchase or build a piece of “land” on the internet. You specifically place this “land” in a high-traffic area, where lots of people pass through (just like traditional real estate, it’s all about Location, Location, Location).
The folks who pass through your “land” all happen to be looking for a specific product or service, so you “rent” your land to a business owner who happens to offer that product or service. The business owner pays you $500 to $2,000 a month to “rent” your Digital Real Estate, because it helps them connect with their ideal customers.
Think of it like buying a strip mall, or an office space, just on the internet, for WAAAAYYY less money and headache.
But for now, let’s dig in a little more about Wim Hof…

Source of Wealth
Extreme Athlete, And Motivational Speaker
This Dutch daredevil rose to fame for his special breathing technique Wim Hof method. Aside from being able to stay alive in very cold temperatures, Wim Hof is also a motivational speaker.
Wim Hof created the Wim Hof method with his son Enahm Hof, and it’s a mix of frequent cold exposure, breathing techniques, yoga, and meditation. He has set Guinness World Records for swimming under ice and keeping his whole body in contact with ice for a long time. He also used to hold the record for running a half marathon without shoes on ice and snow.
Wim Hof has also been the focus of several medical evaluations and a book by investigative journalist Scott Carney. Wim Hof is also the ambassador of Innerfire. Innerfire offers online courses, products, mobile apps, and a huge online community. Wim Hof earns $20,000 a month as an ambassador.
Wim Hof was born in Limburg, Netherlands, and was one of nine siblings. When he was 17, he had a sudden urge to jump into the freezing water of the Beatrixpark Canal.
He has six children: four with his first wife, Marivelle Maria, who died by suicide in 1995, a son with his girlfriend in 2003, and another with his last girlfriend in 2017.
Wim Hof has said that his grief over the death of his first wife was a big part of why he came up with ways to survive in cold places.
Wim Hof set the Guinness World Record for the longest swim under ice on March 16, 2000. He went 57.5 meters (188.6 feet) under a lake near Pello, Finland. In 2013, Stig Severinsen set a new record of 76.2 meters (250 ft).
He also broke the record for running a half marathon barefoot on ice and snow in 2 hours, 16 minutes, and 34 seconds on January 26, 2007. This record was broken on January 17, 2021, when a Czech man named Josef álek ran a half marathon in Pelhimov at 1:36:21.
In 2007, Wim Hof climbed 7,400 meters (24,300 ft) on Mount Everest, wearing only shorts and shoes.
In 2016, he and journalist Scott Carney made it to Gilman’s Point on Mount Kilimanjaro in 28 hours. This event was written about in the book “What Doesn’t Kill Us.”
People who tried the Wim Hof Method have died. In 2015 and 2016, four people who attempted the breathing method drowned, and their families thought the exercises were to blame. In 2021, a Singaporean man tried the Method but drowned in a condo pool.
According to Wim Hof, his method has helped people with rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease.
However, there is no scientific evidence to back up these claims. But scientist Wouter Van Marken Lichtenbelt says that it doesn’t hurt to try the Wim Hof Method as long as you do it with guidance.
