An essential part to survival in the city is keeping fit. You’re no longer in a place where this means a boring hour on the treadmill. You’re in New York, and here you can indulge in almost anything.
If you want to ride a bicycle in a swimming pool, you can do that. AquaCycling at Aqua Studio is the latest New York fitness craze in the heart of Tribeca. Forget the days when you cycled in a dull room on dry land, this spinning experience takes place in four feet of healing saltwater that will challenge you with high-intensity cardio and full-body toning. Already a fitness trend in Europe, Aqua Studio was opened by French expat Esther Gauthier who designed the three-storey wellness boutique with a Parisian sense of intimacy and elegance: just steps down from the loft-style reception, a candlelit pool with state-of-the-art cycles immersed in optimally temperate water gives fitness fans an invigorating workout.
