Hello Wollongong Freedivers!

We're excited to share some exhilarating news for everyone looking to hone their freediving skills and dive deeper into this mesmerising underwater adventure. Deep Sensations Freediving is thrilled to announce that we are now using the University of Wollongong pool to bring you regular pool training sessions, designed meticulously to boost your freediving prowess.

Set within the scenic precincts of the University of Wollongong, their state-of-the-art pool is an impressive 50 metres long and goes down to a depth of 2.3 metres. This expansive space gives you ample room to practice, perform, and perfect your freediving techniques in a controlled environment.

Oh yeah, and it's you won't get as cold on those static breathhold sessions!

Our new pool training sessions are meticulously structured to address various aspects of freediving:

  1. Technique Perfection: A perfect dive isn't just about depth or duration. It's about the grace and efficiency with which you move underwater. Our sessions will equip you with techniques to streamline your movement and reduce energy consumption, allowing you to dive deeper and stay longer.

  2. CO2 Tolerance: As you may know, increasing CO2 tolerance can be a game-changer for freedivers. Our guided training will introduce you to exercises and practices to safely and progressively improve your CO2 tolerance, giving you the confidence to manage your breath more efficiently.

  3. Breathhold Training: The allure of freediving often lies in the silent stillness one feels during a prolonged breath-hold. We'll provide you with tools and techniques to enhance your breath-hold capabilities safely.

  4. In-Water Fitness: Like any other sport, fitness plays a pivotal role in freediving. Our training regimes will focus on in-water exercises to improve your muscle strength, endurance, and flexibility, ensuring you are in the best shape to tackle the depths.
