There are so many good reasons that the better question is, why not?
Up to 800Kcal an hour, in fact. That’s the extra burn you get from water resistance when you work-out in a pool.
Your heart beat frequency is 10% lower in water, so you can work at a higher intensity with a lower heart rate when you water cycle.
Crazy but true. Because it’s low impact on joints, muscles and bones you can enjoy an intense workout without sore muscles the next day.
Because water supports your body weight, water cycling is perfect for all ages, whether you have muscular, joint or weight issues, are recovering from injury or pregnant.
Hydrostatic pressure in water significantly increases blood flow helping to prevent muscle fatigue.
Exercise is a great stress-buster and water cycling is no exception. Who doesn’t find being in water relaxing?
Water buoyancy lets you move your joints in a wider range of motion. Aqua cycling is also a great recovery workout after a big game, marathon or other intense exercise.
Cycling in water creates movement that’s like a natural massage to stimulate and drain the lymphatic system.
Loved the water cycling class
I exercise 6 days a week and never done anything like this. Love.
Anita is so encouraging. I have never been this fit and healthy.
I have been doing Anita's classes for nearly 3 years & I love them. More please!
Who would have thought I would have fun and work out so hard.
Fast and fun
Fast paced and full of variety. Anita is amazing and love the music.
Sundays are the best
Love our 8am Sunday class. We all get on well and when we can breathe we are singing and laughing. Great people. Great workout.
Really helped me build strength and stability in my knee.
Thank you, Water Resist
Got me back into training and I don't miss a class. Lovely group on a Friday morning.
Great class at water resist today. Everyone should try. Challenging but oddly refreshing.
I train with my daughter and love we can do it together.
Loved the water boxing today, nothing like I have ever done. Tough but so much fun.
