I recently had the opportunity to speak with Kathy Peper, the Owner and IDC Staff Instructor of Get Wet Scuba Divers, about her unique business and how scuba helps in attaining fitness. Here is what Kathy had to tell me.
"Scuba is a great way to stay fit and to encourage you to become fit! Of course, being in the water and paddling, using your entire body, is part of the exercise benefits you'll receive from participating in scuba diving. Further, scuba is a great motivator to become more physically active and fit. Once in the water a few times, most people begin to see where they could improve on their fitness quotient. Scuba is an accurate test of your stamina, agility and strength. I see clients everyday who have not only enrolled in my scuba classes, but who are then also motivated and joining health and fitness clubs to stay in shape."
