Weight loss

Aqua Fit Cycling can burn up to 800 calories per hour. Working out in water means your muscles are forced to work harder. The extra pressure of the water on your legs pushes blood back up into the top half of your body, raising your heart rate and burning more calories during the session (constant resistance in all directions with body fat as source of fuel, as its manly an aerobic session). Because you’re in the water, your body temperature doesn’t increase in the same way, so you don’t sweat the same. However, this has a nice effect on your perception of the workout, meaning that you always try to push harder and harder as you feel that you’re not sweating enough, which in turns makes your session in the water tougher when compared to outside water workout.

Improved blood circulation

The pressure of the water on your legs pushes blood back up into your heart, facilitating that venous return of the blood. Research has shown that water resistance coupled with cyclical motion creates a constant lymphatic massage that breaks down fat, reduces cellulite, prevents varicose veins and fuels your muscle to work harder and longer. Eliminating cellulite is much easier in this scenario. The recovery process is facilitated as well.

Low impact on body and joints

Aqua Bike significantly reduces joint impact as your body weight is reduced by 80 per cent underwater. By decreasing the strain on muscles and ligaments, you can train your muscles without putting excessive stress on joints thus preventing injury. Injury free.

Overall workout

Participants mainly will be working on toning up legs. However, the exercises classes also incorporate a series of core and arm strengthening activities to give you an overall workout (press-ups on bikes, dips, sit-ups).

Who doesn’t like making a splash?

While the class is hard work, there is an element of fun to the workout. There is the novel element of getting into the swimming pool with your bike and trying something new. Why not try spin with a splash?
