Strength Training at Home Workout Series

With the pandemic sweeping the planet right now, most of us aren’t able to go diving. But that doesn’t mean that your fitness has to suffer. Suit up and see if you go distance with Italian instructor and cave and tech diver Caterina De Seta. You’ll be better for the exposure!

As we preach in our courses, physical activity is an integral part of our diving as it allows us to dive safely and efficiently. In this difficult period we are all experiencing, it is essential to keep in good physical shape in order to stay strong and healthy.  I am not a fitness teacher, but I thought I would share my daily workouts with our community. If you would like to follow along with me I hope to stimulate your desire to move around a bit. Have fun!

We are excited to announce a partnership between Global Underwater Explorers (GUE) and Scuba.Digital, the #1 Online Dive Show.

Scuba.Digital is hosted on one of the world’s best online event platforms and aims to become the World’s #1 Online Dive Show. With more than 200 exhibitors including Aggressor Adventures, WWDS, Blue O Two, Fourth Element, Divesoft, and many more, Scuba.Digital will bring divers and dive businesses from around the globe together. A program of speakers on the main stage and in our breakout sessions, a networking area and the expo booths, there is something for every diver, free diver or snorkeller.

Jason from Scuba.Digital said: “I feel that GUE are a good fit with Scuba.Digital. They are a non-profit organization that really cares about our oceans and helps people to explore the oceans with the right training in order to conserve what we have.”

Together GUE and Scuba.Digital will be able to bring more speakers with more information not only about diving, freediving or snorkelling but also about the current situation regarding COVID-19, it’s impact on how we partake in these water sports safely and also how we travel to get to the wonderful places we want to go. When will it be safe? What protections are there? Is my money safe? Together we can help the world of divers, free divers and snorkellers get back their confidence to return to the water.

Jason said: “We believe that the partnership between Scuba.Digital and GUE will bring benefits to both our organizations but most importantly to the scuba and free-diving communities themselves. In these times, an online event means that we can get the information we need direct from the owners of the dive resorts, liveaboards or manufacturers.”

Purchase your GUE ticket to the show for just $10.

We would like to Scuba.Digital for including us in their event!
