Freediving Training in Blue Hole (FIM)

Something David Blaine said really resonated with me, he was talking about how he held his breath for 17 minutes: (he was crying when he said this...)

"Magic is pretty simple, it's practice, it's training and experimenting while pushing through the pain to be the best that I can be"

When it comes to freediving training I think it's the same. It's about keeping inspired to keep practicing, training, experimenting and to keep pushing through the pain, this isn't always easy but that's why we do it - it's the challenge that's addicting :)

Advanced Freediving Course - AIDA 3*

THE START OF DEEP FREEDIVING!

You're already a cetified freediver with some good experience!

You want to go deeper, stay longer in static apnea, and improve your freediving techniques!

The AIDA 3 Freediver Course is designed for people who are ready to take their freediving to the next level! This course is THE start of deep freediving! 3 Star freedivers are trained to dive up to -30m. You will be able to really experience the sensations of deep diving.

Much of the course will be spent building on the skills learnt in the AIDA 2 course, learning and practicing free-fall technique, advanced frenzel equalization techniques and training tables.

This course is ideal for freedivers wanting to get deeper than is taught in the 2* course. It opens up a whole new world of diving and offers the first glimpse in to what competitive freedivers experience. It is also a great course to enhance your rescue and buddy skills.

Note, as this course requires some quite serious deep diving to take place, for some locations (Dar es Salaam and Saint Raphael) a boat will need to be chartered for your safety and ease of access.

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

Anyone who completed their AIDA 2* course (or equivalent) and wants additional knowledge and training to dive deeper

Anyone who completed their AIDA 2* course (or equivalent) some time ago and wants to redo the course

THE AIDA 3 COURSE CONSISTS OF

Theory sessions
Breathing and relaxation sessions
2 confined water sessions (in the bay or swimming pool)
4 open water sessions
1 exam to pass at the end

DETAILS OF THE COURSE

You will learn what happens to the body (and lungs) when the surrounding pressure becomes greater and how the body adapts to this (mammalian dive reflex).

You will learn more about equalization techniques and how to perform or master the frenzel technique.

The confined water sessions will allow you to practice O2 and CO2 tables, learn training concepts for static and how to prepare a maximum attempt.

We will refine your freediving techniques, improve your streamlining position, and perform frenzel equalization efficiently while freediving.

You will learn and practice the free falling and how to be very relaxed when performing a freedive to depth.

More rescue scenarios at depth and on the surface will be practice.

THE INSTRUCTOR(S)

Course will be taught by Renee Blundon, an American freediver, AIDA Freediving Instructor, PADI Master Freediving Instructor, Apnea Academy Freediving Instructor and EFR Instructor. She has taught / coached over 70 freedivers in the last two years.
