Freediving is a demanding activity and can be strenuous and you need to be in good health to participate. If you have any questions as to whether or not you are fit to  freedive, consult with your physician.
The purpose of the Medical Questionnaire is to find out if you should be examined by a physician before participating in freediving activities. A positive response to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving. A positive response means that there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while freediving and you must seek the advice of a physician.

Comments: After doing my freediving course and continuing with training with the club I wanted to take it to the next level by doing my Advance Freediver. With greater performance requirements I was feeling a little nervous but with the relaxed and fun environment my mind was but at easy. Through learning new techniques and doing them safety I surprised myself. I gained a lot of confidence and can't wait to continue my freediving journey.
