Got my open water certificate back in '01. It has been a great outlet for me. I then progressed to "Master Diver", which includes; Stress & Rescue and two other specialties. I chose Limited visibility, because I do a lot of beach diving and Deep diving just to be a more comfortable diver. Not much to see deep unless you are doing some shipwreck dives, Its dark and cold down there. Got in the photography in '08, i do it for pure enjoyment.

SCUBA DIVERS CONDITIONING PROGRAM

To get the most out of your dives, it helps to be in shape! Although boat diving has it perks and is better suited for the average diver, one should have a general level of fitness. Can you jog 2 mile comfortably? Can you hold the plank for a minute? If not I suggest you start there.

For the more advanced diver such as myself, I do a lot of beach diving and I suggest you strengthen your legs, cardiovascular system and core. Try this one to keep you beach diving strong.
