Scuba diving is generally not classified or thought of as an athletic sport. Athletic sports like running marathons, football, bike racing, swimming, etc. require large amounts of training and cross training on a weekly or daily basis. There are training programs, coaches, personal trainers, books, etc. for probably every athletic sport today. If you want to get into shape to run a marathon, there are an unlimited number of resources available to help you accomplish your goal. But what about scuba diving?
