AIDA Pool Course 1: Introduction to the pool
In this half-day introductory course, you will learn the absolute basics of freediving, such as the breathing cycle. In about 3 hours you will be given theoretical information, but you will also go into the water and approach the first exercises of time diving. This module in the AIDA training system is not absolutely necessary for participation in the AIDA Pool Course 2, but gives you the opportunity to try out freediving without having to accept large costs.
Price: 70€ (+ possible rental fees for the equipment, script included)
AIDA Pool Course 2: Creating a foundation in the pool
The AIDA Pool Course 2 usually takes place over two days. You will learn the basics of freediving, the necessary practical skills and theoretical knowledge to be able to dive safely as a recreational freediver. You will also learn how to orientate yourself in the pool and how to carry out the relevant safety precautions in a solid manner. In the AIDA pool course 2, you will get a first impression of the various pool disciplines such as time diving (STA) and distance diving with fins (DYN). Putting on the equipment and free diving with equipment will become familiar for you. An important aspect is breathing and relaxation. During the course you will learn more about both.
Price: 180€ (+ possible rental fees for the equipment, script included)
AIDA Pool Course 3: The pool for advanced users
The AIDA Pool Course 3 is designed for advanced recreational freedivers. Building on the skills you learned in the previous pool course, you will be taught new theoretical knowledge as well as new practical tools over three days, such as special training methods (training tables). You will improve your fin technique as well as improve your breath holding. In order to make your dives with your buddies safer, you will also be taught further safety exercises. At the end of the course you will be able to hold your breath for 2:45 minutes and dive 55m.
Price: 225€ (+ possible rental fees for the equipment, script included)
Also: pool coaching
In addition to the AIDA pool courses, I also offer individual pool coaching outside of the AIDA course system. They are aimed at beginners who want an introduction to freediving in the pool and at advanced freedivers who are looking for mental training and support.
