About Tim

Hi my name is Tim. I am a teacher, author and a breathing coach and a father of 5 children. Apart from my healthy lifestyle, I have learned how I can optimize my life, both physically and mentally. My training helps me feel calmer, be healthier and cope with stress. And even influence my mind and body in such a way that I tend to live my life in the most optimal way. Without the BS so to say.

I have learned to control my inner world. Literally, I have more control over my autonomic nerve system (that unconscious part of my body). That’s why I do not suffer from stress like other people do. Not that I have removed stress from my life. Of course I have stress. I have learned to face it and cope with it. This I call “getting rid of the BS”.

You can learn this too.

Getting rid of the BS is done through the deepest, yet simple, mindset training called the Power of Paradox. Pillar 2) Movement – only light exercise. I do light exercises between 2 and 10 minutes per day. I have learned to optimize my metabolism. This means I don’t drop or gain weight easily. 3) I do watch my nutrition at home but I am allowed to eat and drink anything. I do not believe in any diet. Pillar 4) and 5) Breathing techniques and cold training – it’s such a Biohack in practice and so simple. Too many benefits to list here. Maybe stress relief is the best part that I have learned. This is the training that I practice, called Optimize. It gives energy, it releases the right hormones and it keeps me resilient, healthy and at my optimal weight. Maybe more important. It costs very little time and it is simple.


Testimonials Tim van der Vliet

Katarina Pedersen: Tim is a truly passionate, down-to-earth and friendly Wim Hof Method coach. I did my first steps with him few months ago, and I have participated in an Advanced course with him recently. I overcame my biggest fears – it was easy with such a teacher! 5 stars and highly recommended!

Ian Mcinnes, NYC: There are barely enough words in any language to describe the affect that the weekend had on me. I have spent my entire adult life travelling the world as a trainer / team building facilitator/ singer and performer but have hardly taken any time for self growth. I couldn’t walk for six months until this January due to a knee injury and recently ended a ten year relationship with a fabulous girl..blah blah blah. I was holding in so much shit and the combination of breathwork and the comfortable, safe environment and teachings that you and Avi shared plus the connection with all those lovely people was just beyond anything I’ve experienced. I walked the streets of the city last night with an enhanced empathy and awareness and am brimming with a new vitality and curiosity to go deeper.
I truly hope that our paths cross again. You must be inundated with opportunities that your energy brings.

LOVE to you and a sincere THANK YOU.
