Aqua Cycling
What Is Water Cycling?

The resistance created by cycling underwater is twelve times greater than cycling on land, increasing blood flow and improving your cardiovascular endurance. The Hydrorider is designed to grow with you. With its 4 paddle flywheel, the faster you pedal, the more resistance you create, ensuring that you can work-out to your level and grow over time in class. At the same time, the water relaxes muscle tension, helping to prevent injuries or muscle pain normally associated with an intense work-out. Plus, it keeps you refreshed. With the addition of exercises that target your arms and chest, it’s a great body workout.

  • You say it’s high intensity but I’m not very fit.

    Then water cycling is an ideal way to start to improve your fitness. In our classes, everyone is able to work to their own fitness capabilities. Its low impact nature lets you ease into a new fitness routine with very little in the way of ‘next day’ sore muscles. 

  • What if I have injuries or a medical condition?

    Water cycling is a great exercise for people with injuries or health conditions. The water allows you to challenge yourself but also supports your body, It’s very low impact on joints and muscles. Always check with your doctor before starting a new exercise program.

  • Do I need to know how to use an aquabike?

    No, it’s just like riding a bike. Except in water. We’ll show you how to adjust the seat and handlebars so your arms and legs are perfectly placed and you’re ready to go. If you’re still unsure, come and try a free class.

  • I had a knee construction recently. Could I do this?

    First, check with your rehab team or doctor that you’re good to go. Let us know when you book your class and we’ll be sure to modify anything, if necessary, and, of course, the water will help keep impact low, allow you to build strength in supporting muscles, increase range of motion and reduce inflammation.

  • Can I water cycle if I’m pregnant?

    Because your body is supported by water, water cycling is a perfect way for pregnant women to keep fit. As always, check with your doctor first.

What To Bring

Chances are, you already have all the right gear. Just wear swimmers or whatever you feel comfortable wearing in the pool (chafing is not an issue, BTW). A water bottle, sunscreen and a hat are recommended.

Footwear is mandatory for the cage pedals on the aquabikes used in class. Reef water shoes are highly recommended as they allow water to drain away. Ordinary sneakers absorb water and add weight that can cause calf pain.


Burn up to 800Kcal an hour, while improving your cardio endurance and flexibility. Water cycling is low impact on your joints, muscles and bones, as well as a great recovery exercise after marathons or high level matches. Even better, it combats cellulite and is a great stress-buster for a better night’s sleep.
