Aqua cycling has been designed to take advantage of the many benefits of the aquatic environment. The strongest advantage of the Aqua bike is the utilisation of the waters buoyancy for joint support, which provides protection for those who have special medical concerns such as arthritis. The resistance is determined by four paddle wheels. Resistance is also added by increasing RPM’s through acceleration which is a key component in aquatic conditioning. Additional challenges can be met by a change in seat positions, intervals or power pull techniques. Come along and try the newest 30 minute fitness program. A requirement of the class is the wearing of aqua gym shoes.
