I have been freedive-spearfishing most of my life. I moved to Northern California and vermillion rockfish require deeper diving. I was looking for a way to safely extend my bottom time (without hyperventilating) below 50’. A friend recommended this program and I am glad they did. It is a practical, easy to follow system that has provided great results for me. Highly recommended.

Hey! My name is Pete and I'm the founder and instructor at My passion for the ocean world started with scuba diving in the cold waters off the coast of England when I was 13. I soon discovered the beauty of Freediving and in 2014 I reached a personal best breath hold time of 6:42 using this exact training programme.

I believe Freediving is a simple sport that should be accessible to everyone. So I founded to demystify the sport, simplify the learning process and make Freediving accessible for anyone to learn.

Hey everyone, over this course I'll be teaching you how to safely get to a 5 minute breath hold.

I used to look at anyone with more than a 3.5 minute breath hold as having some sort of special abilities.

But the truth is, you don’t have to be superhuman or have any special abilities to achieve this. Anyone, including you, can get to a 5 minute breath hold. You just need to know what to do, how to do it and when to do it. And it doesn't take years of training, it can take just 28 days.

I'm not going to pretend this is easy, it takes some hard work. But in my experience people don't mind putting in hard work to achieve their goals and I'm sure you're the same. The challenge comes in knowing where to focus that hard work to achieve the goal in the most efficient way. This was exactly my problem when I started out.

I wanted to get to a 5 minute breath hold. I had some idea of what to do, I had read every Freediving book there was, I went on every course there was and I got tips off anyone that seemed credible, but no one gave me what I was looking for. Sure I got plenty of advice, but most involved years of hard training.

I don’t have a problem with hard training, but I would call myself a recreational diver, using freediving to experience the beauty of the oceans. Sadly, this is just a handful of times a year, not week in week out. So I wanted something a bit more fast track, a bit more intensive, something that I could turn to when I needed it.

I needed clear guided instructions of what to do, how to do it and when to do it. What was safe to do and what really wasn't safe? So i decided to take what I knew and experiment. After many iterations and a year of tweaks this training programme was finally born.

Now it's the only training programme I'll ever use. I can even take a year off and come back to it before a holiday, and after 4 weeks I'm back up to my personal best times.

And I have by no means got any special abilities. As I said, anyone can get to a 5 minute breath hold and I know you can too!
