“Free diving has led me to evolve both physically and mentally on a level that I couldn’t even imagine. I want to share with you my experiences through freediving that started as an interest that became a passion that is now affecting my whole lifestyle. The references for what is a challenge have been moved through my achievements in freediving. It is extremely exciting to explore and get to know myself deeper on the mental level through freediving and find the connections to the physical performance.

In this blog I want to share my training, diet, mindset, my thoughts and reflections on this. With mindset I mean my attitude and my approach to challenges. Through my experiences I see parallels between freediving and life itself. Through this blog I want to inspire others to make the best version of themselves and find their true capacity. You can accomplish so much more than you think if you are only willing to believe in it.”
