I have a shapefile of 16370 polygon features (see below). I want to split all features in features with a maximum size of 25x25 meters (still including all attributes).

I am aware ArcGIS Pro is currently having such an option (https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/help/editing/divide-a-polygon-by-a-value.htm), but I have no access to the program. Does anyone have an idea to achieve something similar?
