Pool­bik­ing at Club Ash­down

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

Ex­clu­sive to Club Ash­down Pool­bik­ing is the lat­est and hottest fit­ness trend. Pool­bik­ing is a bike that al­lows you to pedal while im­mersed in wa­ter. In the wa­ter, re­sis­tance is 12 times stronger than on land en­abling you to burn up to 600-800kcal per hour and there­fore im­proves your en­durance. Wa­ter buoy­ancy pro­vides both pres­sure and sup­port for your body, eas­ing mus­cles, bones and joints. Your blood cir­cu­la­tion is stim­u­lated by the wa­ter fric­tion, the lym­phatic sys­tem is ac­ti­vated and cel­lulite elim­i­na­tion is fa­cil­i­tated. You work hard but in a gen­tle way with no un­com­fort­able sweat­ing and no post workout sore­ness!

Re­search shows that ex­er­cis­ing in wa­ter pro­vides many health and fit­ness ben­e­fits and it is of­ten used in re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion.

Pool­bik­ing works as a phys­i­cal ther­apy ac­tiv­ity. It is an ex­cel­lent car­dio­vas­cu­lar workout and uses the ben­e­fits of wa­ter buoy­ancy and re­sis­tance to make the ex­er­cise mo­tion and se­quences es­pe­cially gen­tle on the joints. This process makes for a great train­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, suit­able for ev­ery­one young and old

It is ex­cel­lent for shap­ing and ton­ing, in­clud­ing cel­lulite and heavy legs syn­drome, joint aches and pains as well as re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and gen­eral fit­ness and well­be­ing.

Wa­ter re­sis­tance helps burn up to 600-800kcals per hour depend­ing on the in­ten­sity of your workout.

How hard can you work?

It’s up to you! The faster you cy­cle, the harder it is.

What do you need to wear?

All you need is your swimwear and some flip flops to safely walk around the swim­ming pool. Prefer­ably wear swimwear that feels com­fort­able and pro­vides good sup­port. The spe­cial­ist fuss­free de­sign means that you will cy­cle bare­foot.

Do you need to be able to swim?

No swim­ming is re­quired but you need to feel at ease in the wa­ter as it will reach about waist level.

Is it suit­able for all?

Any­one can ben­e­fit from this class re­gard­less of their phys­i­cal con­di­tion; from ath­letes as a com­pli­men­tary train­ing method to com­plete be­gin­ners and those look­ing for a safe and com­plete train­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

‘Pool Bik­ing in Club Ash­down was a great con­fi­dence booster for me in the wa­ter, I’ve felt more en­er­getic, slept bet­ter, but most im­por­tantly had such fun and made new friends. The in­struc­tors are very pos­i­tive and very pa­tient, they also put you through your paces week in, week out.’ Mary Hay­den- Gorey
