INFO

"I understand that each person comes to freediving with a different aquatic history, a different motivation to train and a different goal.  My aim is to guide each diver as an individual with specific needs and challenges." - Harry Chamas (Freedive Passion)

 
 

INDIVIDUAL COACHING

IMG_3951.jpg

Join me for personalised coaching.  I have the knowledge and experience to help divers of all levels to better themselves in the sport of freediving.  Together we will discus your aspirations, from this I will assess your diving and we will devise the best plan for achieving your desired goals. 

Why choose coaching?  The reality is that most freedivers don't get to spend much time at depth.  This means what time you do have should be used as efficiently as possible.  Without a lot of experience it will be very hard for a freediver to know how best to spend his/her time.  This is where I come in.  I have the ability to analyse what is holding you back and devise the best route for you to master that skill.

A days coaching includes yoga, pranayama, lung stretching, theory, dry EQ training, coached diving and debriefing.

4 WEEK MENTORSHIP

Each day consists of Yoga, Pranayama, Lung stretching, Dry EQ training, Theory, Briefing, Dive session, Debriefing and home work.

The mentorship is designed not only to make you a better freediver, but to give you a solid understanding of this beautiful sport.

We will also discuss how to organise your own training with regards to periodisation and specific session planning.  Without a doubt, you will walk away from this experience fulfilled with a deep understanding of freediving and it's possibilities both in depth and feeling.

COACH TRAINING PROGRAMME

This Internship is designed for the freediving professional (instructor) who wants to expand their knowledge of teaching, coaching and safety.

I will help you to become confident in your methods and knowledge, because it is the same methods and knowledge that has made me one of the most successful coaches in the world.  No longer will you have to blindly experiment to solve a divers problems, you will be able to approach each issue with clarity, certainty, and an array of tools designed for the specific problem.

This 3 month internship, begins with a 4 week mentorship, I will coach you personally.  In order to teach, you must first understand through experience.  Your own diving should be of the highest level.  That is what this first month will be about.

The next 2 months will be shadowing my coaching, and building your experience of safety diving.  There will be regular debriefings and lectures so you understand my methods and reasoning.

I will not be spoon feeding you information, you will complete written assignments and lectures on a variety of subjects relating to freediving.  You will be expanding your knowledge of freediving, while simultaneously learning how to research and formulate your own methods and theory's.

This time period within a coaching environment will allow you to not only observe my coaching, but once the time is right and your knowledge is complete - you too will be able to coach and start to problem solve students' issues (under my supervision) building your own experience and confidence.

Upon completion, the participant will be given access to my beginner freedivers course materials and be able to teach beginners using my system.

TOPICS COVERED - EQ (common issues, dry exercises, in water exercises, problem solving), Technique (FI,CWT,CWT-B,CNF), Periodisation, Safety Diving, Psychology, Adaptation, Cross Training, Physiology, Current + Waves, Overcoming Hypoxia, Session Planning Principles, Stretching, Meditation, Pranayama, Competition Rules, Competition Safety.

DISTANCE COACHING

Swimming Pool

Monthly Training programming by Harry Chamas.

Time is valuable to all freedivers. We have limited spare time, limited pool time, limited time at depth, limited energy.  This means the time we do spend training MUST be spent wisely and efficiently.

I will personalise your programming to your own circumstances and goals - leaving you free to focus on what matters the most to you - FREEDIVING.

Programming includes (where available/necessary) Pool training, Depth training, Stretching, Pranayama, CO2/O2 training, Aerobic/Anaerobic training and Strength training.

Take the guess work out of your training with Freedive Passion.

150 Euros per Month

 

DISTANCE MOUTHFILL COURSE

"If you can't do it dry, then you can't do it in the water.

This online mouthfill course gives you all the awareness and understanding you need to start to use the mouthfill manoeuvre (the safest way to equalise to depth).

Mouthfill can seem like a confusing thing to learn.  The main reason is most people have been taught by people who do not fully understand mouthfill themselves.

In reality, with the right guidance - mouthfill is a simple manoeuvre to learn and you will quickly overcome your equalisation issues.

The Key is building awareness. Awareness of the body parts involved, awareness of the amount of air you have and awareness of how to use that air.

5 Video calls (30-60 minutes each)

7 Additional YouTube video's

Including "How to make your own Bubbler"
