Scuba Diving is good for you.

There are many advantages to being a Scuba diver that go beyond the pure joy of being able to breath underwater.  Being seemingly unaffected by gravity and enjoying the underwater world with others as you develop a greater understanding of the underwater world, you explore, learn and discuss all the unique aspects of the activity with peers and your instructor.  Plus Scuba diving has many health and social benefit’s too.

Taking your first dive course and becoming a certified PADI Open Water Diver is a thrilling experience that stimulates all the senses.  The physical, intellectual, social and jaw dropping awe sometimes at the previously unknown perspective on how you can interact with the ocean.  It’s no wonder the PADI Open Water Diver course is so popular.

With regular diving and developing your dive skills further, the extent of what you can gain becomes more and more apparent.  Things like equipment handling, buoyancy control, navigation and your understanding of how to interact with marine life.  These things become more and more like second nature when you combine proper training with experience.  These aspects challenge and develop your mind and body on every dive with an enjoyable workout on all levels.

Scuba diving is a complete workout that is both relaxing and exciting at the same time.  Handling your dive gear works your muscles in similar ways as resistance training, which is known to have great health benefits. Of course make sure you are using good techniques like using your legs when lifting and not your back.  Swimming around underwater while Scuba Diving gives you the option to relax and swim at a pace that suits you, it doesn’t always feel like you’re even exercising but the resistance of the water affects your every movement.  It’s a full body workout while you relax into your dive and explore…..  HOW GOOD IS THAT!! 

There are also the meditative affects of focusing on your body’s movements and breathing.  Experienced divers with a good level of training, like say Master Scuba Diver,  learn to master dive skills to this level.  The Advanced Open Water course goes a long way to getting your skills to this level too.  Becoming a PADI Professional like a Divemaster or Instructor develops your skills further.  With these high level courses you get your diving knowledge, leadership and teaching skills to a level where if you choose, you can take up this great health activity as a professional diver.

So do yourself and your body a favour and go Scuba Diving!
