We connect medical scientists, health insurers and practitioners.

Who we are
Swiss Cold Training Association (SCTA)

Training with the cold is gaining more and more in popularity as people rediscover their true innate power. And for a good reason: there are numerous benefits associated to it. Yet, there are also risks to it. Our goal is to empower people to gain more control over their physical and mental health through training with the cold. At the same time we promote a safe practice. These factors will eventually lower the health costs in Switzerland.

 

 

We are an overarching organization and we welcome coaches and instructors of different cold training methods to join our cause and spread the safe practice of cold training. Among the cold training methods are general methods such eskimo fitness, as well as more specialized ones such as the Wim Hof Method, Kneipp and others. We are fully committed to supporting our members. Our funding stems from member fees and donations.

 

 

The SCTA is a non-profit organization based in Zurich. Our statutes can be found here.
