Fitness in Diving

Do you free/rec/tec or dive in some other way? Regardless of your experience level, you should listen to this podcast. Extremely interesting and informative! Experts are easily understand as well. Not too long, not too short, stays on topic and doesn’t waste time trying to be funny, cute or political. Please keep up the great work - especially for us older, newbie divers.
