What is Freediving? 

It's something that you were actually born to do... 

Believe it or not, you are actually capable of more than you know and you're a bit of a super human. 

The best way to describe this; Freediving involves longer breath holds and deeper depths to snorkelling and a lot more of an inward focus. Every human's ability to do this is something called the Mammalian Dive Reflex, whereby underwater submersion of the human body resorts in the decreased heart rate (like all mammals) and once underwater, you rely on holding your breath until resurfacing.  How long you hold your breath for is up to you. 

This is where your ability to enforce the power of your mind comes in and Freediving is all about unlocking this; unlocking your Superhero.

Your body wont go where your mind doesn't push it and this all comes down to choice. Your inner ability to control your mind is next level; a superhuman level.  So take a step back in time to where you came from - the ocean and while you're doing that, let's get deep into the mindset of a Freediver and unlock potential that you never knew existed.
