“training with Freedivers - Eilat”
Review of Freedivers

Freedivers
Reviewed July 18, 2013

When I first started reading about Aharon Solomons, I set myself a goal to reach at least
5 min static before even attempting to liase with him. Students who competed and broke
national records, who participated in the world championships trained regularly with Aharon
while I was just a beginner trying to overcome equalization issues.
I was even thinking that I would not be accepted as a student, considering my humble results.
As I later found out, beginners are definitely welcome to train with Freedivers.
Long story short, by the time I did my first training session with Freedivers, my PB in static
was 4:50, with an improvement of only 5 seconds in the previous 1 year and 4 months, the
result of overtraining, as I was later informed by Aharon.
10 days of water sessions in October 2012 followed by 5 months of remote coaching and another holliday in Eilat including 13 days of water sessions in April 2013 and my FIM improved from 29 m to 46.2 m, my static – from 4:50 to 6:02. Also, I have completed my AIDA 4* course and received my certification I am really proud of.
One thing I highly appreciate during the courses with Freedivers is the communication related to the particular training needs of the student. While other freedivers managed to cope with equalization
after a few dives only, I had to work hard and exasperate my coaches (well I didn't, as it turned out, they were very patient).
One last thing that keeps me high spirited during my stay in Eilat – the jokes that I eventually have to disregard before doing my breathe up.

I been diving and free diving since an early age, only to take this course and learn I was playing in the little boys pool. Freedivers opened new depth for me in a well structured course set in one of the best locations for it.
