Long after the jet lag and the first day back to work, you slip into your favorite dive t-shirt eager to keep the essence of your most recent underwater experience pulsing through your mind and body.

Proudly wearing large print and logos across your chest or back is a way of celebrating your passion for diving and sharing it with the rest of the world. Why not, beyond the obvious comfort of the cotton, diving is a recreational activity that quickly becomes a way of life.

Now imagine if you pulled on your favorite dive t-shirt and someone had changed the slogan to express other aspects of your lifestyle. Would you be as enthusiastic about your cholesterol or body weightin large print for the rest of the world to see?

While scuba diving is a recreational activity almost anyone can enjoy; many participate with disregard for any number of unhealthy conditions. Exercising to enhance recreational activity is a positive way to take responsibility for your health, bring focus and motivation to a fitness routine and improve your overall diving performance. Be concerned more with what’s under your t-shirt than what is on it.
