FREEDIVING COACHING & TRAINING SYSTEM

DEVELOPED BY RENEE BLUNDON

My aim is to prepare athletes so they can arrive at the line fully ready, mentally and physically, with the skills needed to have effortless and enjoyable dives. A freediver’s training should not only include the obvious depth training elements but also, and arguably more importantly, the technical and mental side of things too.

ACHIEVE YOUR FREEDIVING GOALS

Freediving coaching with the aim to have you achieve your goals. You will learn how to train in freediving in the most efficient way possible with training concepts that will not only save you time but also help prevent illness, over-training and injury. This way you can stay strong and healthy and keep moving in the direction of your freediving goals.

FREEDIVE AND RELAX

3) VIDEO ANALYSIS

Wondering about your freediving technique? I’ll take a video of your freedives and we’ll review it together after the diving session. I’ll give you feedback on how to freedive more efficiently, we’ll note your improvements and what can still be improved upon.

It’s also extremely helpful for you to see yourself and what you are doing so you can visualize your dives and correct your mistakes.

5) DIVE RECORDING

You will learn how to best log your freedives (and any other training) with time set aside after the diving session to record your training and note things you learned that day during the session.

This will help you remember helpful insights for the next dives and will keep you feeling motivated and excited about the learning process.

Testimonials

  • I was in Dahab for two weeks for freediving training and Renee's coaching was excellent. She displayed impressive determination, customer service and commitment. The overall organization was always great even in a sometimes challenging environment. Thanks to Renee's experience she was able to develop my technique and the mind-set I was approaching free diving with. Her way of coaching was safety oriented and conservative. I was always feeling safe during my dives. This was probably one of the reasons I was able to learn a lot from this experience. I will surely recommend her to any friends who would either begin with freediving or further develop their skills.

  • I came to Dahab looking for a laid back rest from traveling, I was met with a huge freediving family community. I decided to try freediving to see if I could improve my air consumption on open circuit scuba, what I learned was much more. I was referred to Renee by several people in Dahab we met for coffee, and I could instantly see how much passion she had for the sport. Renee is extremely dedicated, and literally lives to dive. Over four days of training and coaching I learned the different disciplines of freediving, how to practice breath hold techniques, how to stretch and get in the proper frame of mind to dive, physiology behind breathe hold and so much more than any text and article could offer. What I enjoyed most was how professional the coaching was delivered in such a laid back relaxed comfortable space. Whether you want to improve technique, gain depth, overcome your fears, Renee will safely provide and environment where you can challenge your self and grow as a person and a diver.

  • I came to Dahab to train and improve my water confidence for my upcoming assessment and selection for a special operations forces unit. Renee exceeded my expectations by far. She is not only teaching you about all the various freediving skills, but also invests a lot of time in meditation, breathing techniques and stretching. She is very passionate in whatever she is teaching. I can highly recommenced Renee to everyone, it would not matter if you would be just beginning to freedive or an elite freediver, she will adapt to your needs quickly. Thank you Renee for making a better underwater swimmer out of me!

  • It was quite a journey with Renee! We spent one whole month together. She has a unique balance of strength that pushes you forward and sweetness. She tells you what you need to hear and encourages you. “You know you can do it” she kept telling me while I was preparing for my national record attempt. I was very sick during competition days but she knew what to do, she told me which doctor to go and as she told me I would be good in a few days. She was right again. And we did it! WE did the record together. Even if the record hadn't happened I could master a new kind of equalization technique. She gave me exercises, theory and all I needed. It really put my diving into a new level!
