Take heart, Florabama. I'm 63 and still diving strong. My local YMCA, my bike, and my wife keep me fine tuned. You've got to exercise!!!! and as long as everything else stays together, exercise will keep you flexible and give your cardio and breathing endurance. I always have dive trips in the future; that's my carrot that keeps pushing me.
I just turned 50 on monday.Ahhhhhh I don't exercise very much except walking through airports. Just got my AOW 2 weeks ago after diving for 21 years. I feel fine and have no flexabilty problems. Actually had a valve replaced in my heart 3/18/04 and was diving in Aruba 4 months later. I better be able to dive for 10 or more years. I keep buying new stuff!!!
I just returned from Puerto Galera in the Philippines. There was a 76 year old diver there who was just getting over a hip replacement. He was limping a bit but was diving 3 times a day. Now I'm just about 47 and I just hope I can be as good as this guy is when I'm 60...
