The Constant Gardener

Two hundred dives at the same site
Cross training for freediving

It’s the perfect little chubby face.  Snub-snouted and Disney-cute.  She’s adorable – wanting to stay and stare in my state of bliss is tempered by my awareness that she’s not happy with the invasion of her personal space.  We love anemonefishes to death.
I remember being delighted and slightly hypnotized by that face on my first dive 25 years ago off Oman’s Musandam Peninsula, and that delight has never gone away.


I can name five dive sites that I have done well over a hundred dives at and several of these, two hundred dives. You might think that this is a little repetitive and may not maintain the excitement. Nothing could be further from the truth!
When you dive again and again at the same dive site, the hidden magic of the sea is revealed more clearly and in greater depth. The harder you look, the more you see. You identify ecological niches and unique life forms.


Supplementing your freediving with other forms of training is essential to keep yourself progressing. In this article I'll talk about what I personally do to aid my freediving and why I think it works. I'm no exercise scientist or physiologist and I'll be able to provide no concrete scientific evidence for what I do besides the fact that it works for me.
For a long time strength and fitness weren't seen as essential in diving.
