Record-breaking plunge

Aqua Wellness World hosted the two largest AquaCycling classes EVER in the US on March 13, 2016. More than 60 participants came to pedal in the pool with Maryline & raise funds for the American Heart Association.

It was a great day for Wear Red to AquaCycle!

A New Spin On Spin Class—Aqua Cycling

We were skeptical when we first heard about aqua cycling. Spin class in the pool? Really? Why? (It didn’t help that it was January and we would have to wear bathing suits.) But curiosity about the new fitness trend—which originated in Europe and has just come to the US, and to Westchester—won out, and we gave it a shot.

Take the plunge and try AquaCycle

Originally a rehabilitative exercise for physical therapy, Aquacycling is now a high-energy group class, done on sleek, custom-made Italian bikes that use suction cups to stay put on the pool floor.

On a Wednesday morning, exercise instructor Maryline Bouhier is leading a class of 15 people through an exhaustive pace.

Bouhier, pedaling furiously on an exercise bike while some techno-pop plays in the background, exorts her charges to breathe, pedal faster and engage their core.

But this is not your typical class. Bouhier is leading an AquaCycle Class at Port Chester’s Carver Center.

Bouhier and her husband, Laurent are the founders of Aqua Wellness World which offers a weekly schedule of AquaCycle classes. Originally a rehabilitative exercise for physical therapy, Aquacycling is now a high-energy group class, done on sleek, custom-made Italian bikes that use suction cups to stay put on the pool floor.
