Fun In the Sun Fitness: Aqua Cycling

I recently read an article about this new fitness trend called aqua cycling and thought it was a really interesting and fun take on water fitness!

Basically, the idea is that you’re cycling in a pool and the resistance is created and determined by how fast you pedal in the water so it adjusts to your own level.

What I really think is cool about this is that it combines having fun in the Summer with fitness, more specifically spinning, which is pretty intense and a very effective form of cardio. Sadly, there are no fitness clubs in my area that offer this type of thing, but if you’re area offers it, please try it out for me and let me know how it is!

There is a club in New York that offers it and you can check out their site – here.

Apparently, it’s also gaining popularity in Europe, especially France, and you can see a video of that here. A cool aspect of the way they do aqua cycling in France is that they actually do it  in a large pool outdoors instead of an indoor fitness pool and they’re in the sunlight with music so it really has that summer fun sport vibe.

For now, I guess I can try the hydrobikes in Long Beach which isn’t really the same thing at all, but does involve pedaling on water LOL.

Have You Guys Ever Heard Of or Tried Aqua Cycling?

    I have a recommendation for you or anyone who wants to try this in their home pool. One of the things my doctors recommended for me to exercise since I couldn’t barely walk at that time is an “Aquajogger”. I think I got mine on Amazon for about $60.00. There should be 3 parts, the waist belt, the arms(2 pieces), & the legs (2 pieces). Like you said the resistance is what is important. Check them out, and good luck!
