Benefits of aqua-cycling

With the liquid gym, Aqua-fitness offers a complete, comfortable and safe workout. With the proper supervision, participants can reach their fitness goals by taking part in these aquatic activities.

  • Since the physical activity takes place underwater, the joints are subjected to much less stress.
  • The heart rate is reduced by 10-15 beats per minute compared with the same effort expended out of the water.
  • The muscles produce less lactic acid due to the water-related reduction in body temperature and to the massage effect provided by contact with the water while pedalling/walking.
  • Weight loss is facilitated.
  • Muscle strength is boosted.
  • Bone mass is maintained.
  • Blood circulation is improved and blood pressure is reduced.
  • Stress is reduced and sleep is improved.
  • Discomfort is reduced due to sweating during and after the physical activity.
  • Post-training fatigue is reduced.
  • Posture, muscle relaxation and flexibility are improved
  • Muscle pain is relieved.
  • Balance is improved.
  • Cellulite is reduced.
  • Active aquatic drainage serves to strengthen the vein network and to address various needs (health, esthetics and physical fitness).
  • Participants burn up to 800 calories per hour on the bicycle. Thanks to the support/pressure provided by the water, blood circulation is speeded up and fat elimination is facilitated.

These health benefits apply to a wide range of clienteles requiring:

  • Group aqua-fitness courses
