5 Benefits Of Aqua Cycling by Aqua Body Strong
1. Burn More Fat In Less Time
Most everyone can agree that working out in water is more difficult than working out on land, due to the viscous nature of water and it's resistant qualities. Aqua Body Cycle classes capitalize on the nature of water. They incorporate HIIT like workouts on and off the bike utilizing water resistance. In this training technique, students perform intense bursts of exercises like "sprinting" on the bike or kicking while holding the handles, followed by short recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps students heart rate up and burns more fat in less time than on land.

3. Water Therapy - Increased Lymphatic Drainage
When cycling in water, the pedaling movement, combined with the resistance of the water acts like a massage. This helps to circulate the lymph, or more specifically, the fluid of the lymphatic system. Increasing circulation and drainage of the lymphatic system can relieve swelling and help dispose of toxins. Optimizing your detox pathways can help boost energy levels, promote clarity of mind and more!
4. Improved Balance
Balance is the body’s ability to remain upright and steady. When a student is pedaling on the aqua bike, currents of water push on the body, challenging them to keep their form. As this happens, the body’s autonomic nervous system kicks in and activates the core stabilizing muscles to engage, effectively strengthening the core. As a result, students benefit not only by cycling the calories away but by gaining a stronger core, which equates to better balance.
5. Toned Muscles & Coordination
In the past, people often associated water exercise with their grandma's workout, but today that is all changing. Writer, Rosalind Ryan, sums it up nicely in her article, "How can aqua-exercises help you slim?" She says, "Just because exercising in water is softer on joints does not mean it is a softer workout. Working out in water means your muscles are forced to work harder, burning more fat and toning them up faster than land-based exercises. This is because they are fighting the water every time they move." Aqua Cycle, by Aqua Body Strong, is ideal for toning muscles and improving coordination.
