Florian Dagoury (34yo, France)

Florian is a Freediving Instructor Trainer currently based in Thailand. For the past 10 years Florian and his team of instructors have taught freediving to 7000+ students and 300+ instructors. In the early years of his career Florian was focusing on depth disciplines and achieved 80m in Free Immersion. Over the following years he developed a soft spot for the static apnea discipline and made it his priority. Florian can now hold his breath for 10:30 minutes, which is World #1 STA performance (according to AIDA, 2021).

Training approach

Florian’s training method is simple. He uses Static apnea as the foundation of all freediving disciplines. On top of his regular distance and depth training, he got used to do a short morning routine of breath-hold and stretches. 30 minutes daily routine, dry alone or wet with safety buddy. The goal is to develop the basic abilities for Freediving, such as: deep relaxation, Co2 tolerance, hypoxia tolerance and lung capacity. « I’ve been following this fundamental routine for years and never felt better diving. I’m not trying to dive deeper. I’m trying to dive longer to enjoy the view and sensations. My morning routines are the key to all my skills »
