50% off learn how to frenzel course (need beta testers!)

Sounds familiar?
  • Trouble equalizing between 15 - 35 feet while freediving?
  • Notice is hard to equalize head down but super easy when you turn head up?
  • Tired of people telling you to pinch your nose and blow?


If so, you are likely using the wrong equalization method. You are probably doing the Valsalva method of equalization which will not work past 15-35 feet while freediving.

If you are doing Valsalva I have created an online course called Road Map to Frenzel. It is a series of 13 videos with over 2 hours of content with EVERYTHING I know about how to teach Frenzel.

I've taught over 500 people how to Frenzel via my one on one skype sessions since I started running them in 2010.




I need help!

I'd like to get feedback from real students who are struggling with equalizing. I'm offering this course for 50% off in return for answering a survey and getting your thoughts on the program. I've had many instructors evaluate the program, and they love it, but I want data from real students.

This free video will quickly allow you to determine if you are doing Valsalva or Frenzel. https://vimeo.com/250893417


If you are doing Valsalva and want to learn Frenzel you can purchase the program @ www.Immersionfreediving.com/store, I just ask that in return for getting at 50% off you provide feedback and answer the survey you will get.

Re: 50% off learn how to frenzel course (need beta testers!)

I have been limited to around 40' freedives due to not being able to equalize head first. I learned through Ted's intro video this was simply because valsava will not work beyond those depths and signed up for the video series. The videos are well done and Ted does a great job explaining the Frenzel method. I believe I began to overthink the complexity of this equalization method and was trying too hard instead of relaxing. Once I started to visualize the steps such as closing the throat and forcing the trapped air out of my nose about halfway through the series, it seemed to click and I am effortlessly able to equalize on land after emptying my lungs and using the Frenzel method he describes. I still have a few remaining videos to watch and I'm waiting for an opportunity to test this method out in water. If you are on the fence I'd definitely recommend watching his videos.

Not saying that I would never purchase the videos (probably will) but, to say that you cannot use the Valsava method of equalization past 15-35 ft is a very misleading statement. Its the only method I have ever used and have no trouble diving past those depths regularly.

Glad to hear the videos worked for you! Let me know how it goes in the water, and remember one of the videos discusses what to do if Frenzel works on dry land but doesn't work in the water.
