In January, Bart Biermans and Sava Riaskoff gave a workshop at the Vondelgym. Among others, Arie Boomsma, founder of the Vondelgym, personally took part in this workshop. It’s amazing to teach a workshop to such motivated people but it’s also a challenge to get trained athletes to “let go”. Athletes usually achieve peak performance through a rigorous grind, but this attitude does not always work in the ice bath. Letting go while having faith, focus and the right intentions are the key qualities you will need to overcome the ice bath.
