Check out our Hydrorider Aqua Spinning Bikes!

We are the only Aquatic Facility in Western New York to feature the Hydrorider Aqua Spinning bikes! The Hydrorider Aquabike Professional is a unique Aqua Bike or Water Bike made for the activity of Aqua Cycling or Aqua Spinning, taking advantage of the many benefits of the aquatic environment. The resistance is determined by four paddle wheels that are adjustable on three levels. The longer the paddle is pulled out, the greater the surface volume of the water taken in; hence, the greater the resistance. Resistance is also added by increasing RPMs through acceleration which is a key component in aquatic conditioning. Additional challenges can be met by a change in seat positions, intervals or power pull techniques, for maximum results it is recommended to use aqua gym shoes. Hydrospinning is recommended for everyone from tri-athletes, cross trainers, traditional spinners, rehab and weight loss!
