Aquabiking burns up to 500kcal per 30 minutes session, which is almost double of what you can achieve with your standard cycling workouts. The added pressure provided by the water helps your body in putting in more efforts. Therefore, your blood circulation is speeded up and fat burning is facilitated.
Hydro massage helps you fight efficiently against cellulite. Friction against the water results in good muscle tone and reduced fat which helps combat cellulite. Cellulite, also partly caused by a build-up of fluid the hydro jets massage combined with the cycling movement drain that away.
Increases Blood Flow and Improves Blood Circulation
Research has proven that the hydrostatic pressure of water along with the workout increases your blood flow and improves circulation. This way, your muscles are energized and stress is relieved.
No Impact on Joints
Traditional cycling and any other cardio workout puts a lot of pressure on the joints of your legs. For seniors and those with injuries and weak joints, cardio workouts may become a tough feat to accomplish. However, with Aquabiking, it is possible to perform cardio workouts since water allows zero gravity feeling. In other words, water will support your body weight while you can perform the exercise.
Due to the hydro-massage effect Aquabiking has, your sore muscles are instantly relieved of stress and hence repaired sooner than it happens after traditional workouts.
Better Sleep & Relaxation
Again, the hydro-massage effect water gives to your legs and body and since the entire workout improves your blood flow, your body is able to rest better. Muscle flexibility and relaxation is improved.
Improves Cardiovascular Endurance
The general rule of thumb is that your heartbeat frequency is 10% lower in water than on land. This way, working out in water means reduced heartbeat rate and increased endurance.
Promotes Recovery and Flexibility
You are able to move your joints in a wider range of motion with relatively less stress on your muscles. This means that you are able to recover faster after a thorough workout or a stressful day.
