Strength for Scuba Divers, a groundbreaking program released October 31, 2022, offers comprehensive workouts for divers’ fitness needs. Available on, Certified Personal Trainer, Anna Wood collaborates with Jade Scuba Adventures to focus specifically on divers. 

Anna Wood, founder of Shaped By Strength, focuses on personal training plans to enhance strength and functionality in life. She has worked with members of the military, athletes, special needs clients, postpartum mothers, and more. Strength for Scuba Divers is a six-week instructional video program that complements a diver’s fitness needs: strong, functional core, enhanced gluteal and leg strength, and diving endurance so divers are prepared for the forces in the water by working out on land. 

This fully online program offers on-demand access fully tested with professional divers who reported increased strength, endurance, and balance gains across the board. The participants reported increased endurance, better ability to hold trim and to hold their knees up, stronger kicking and finning, increased diving times, confidence picking up and carrying heavy equipment, and greater ease keeping up with the group. The benefits extended to their lives as well with better posture and increased balance and strength. 

Shaped By Strength was created by Anna Wood as a response, and in opposition to, the harmful and deceptive practices of the fitness industry she fought to overcome during her eating disorder recovery. Shaped By Strength offers safe, healthy, life-enhancing training and philosophies to stand out in a world where 99% of programs focus on weight loss and being skinny regardless of how it impacts your health.
