Cycling as a fitness activity has really taken off in the last couple of years, but Aqua Studio in NYC offers a variation on the workout with its 'Aquacycling' classes.

Just as its name suggests, the workout class involves a stationary cycling machine that's placed in water. Some of the reasons that this setup is of benefit include that it makes for a high-cardio and low-impact activity, especially since water is a thousand times thicker than air and provides greater resistance. The classes are held in salt water, which also provides a naturally detoxifying muscle massage for the body's lymphatic system.

Some of the different types of Aquacycling classes that are offered through Aqua Studio include Boost, Blend, Restorative and Men Special.
