Carlos Coste is really a special character in the Freediving scene and actually one of the best freedivers in history. The facts prove it, he set up 12 world records and was the first human to dive below 100m in two disciplines. 

Carlos is not only an amazingly nice guy, who’s positive energy has the power to sneak through your device directly into your living room. For this episode he also took us on a journey into the depths of the sea and into the various layers of his special character and outstanding achievements. 

On the way we’ve been talking about the ability to control fears and emotion, not only when you see a shark for the first time. 😉 We took a detour on his routines of visualization as a powerful tool for success.  And we dove into the secrets of how he manages to push limits further. 

At the beginning of the conversation Carlos said that  „Most people have ideas in their mind and they are like a wall.“ But Carlos’ dismantling way of talking about his experiences, trainings, and progress tackled these ideas in such a concrete way that I somehow left the conversation convinced that I am capable of incredibly great things. I hope he does the same with you ! 

And before I tell too much here I’ll just end with Carlos’ words:  Amigo just relax. Don’t think too much and enjoy. You are ready for that. 😉 

P.S.  I recommend to stay until the very end because Carlos won’t let you go without sharing some first-hand breathing techniques.
