Last night I had a chance to preview the new Aqua Spa Beauty Collection due in stores in March and to get us in the mood, Aqua Spa took us for a spin in the pool with the latest fitness craze, AquaCycling.
Aqua Spa products are a fabulous and affordable new line of lotions, bath salts, body oils and body washes that will make your skin feel fabulous without breaking the bank. Offering both collagen boosting and aromatherapy Aqua Spa products get you feeling good and keep you looking good from start to finish.
Not only does Aqua Spa boast a fantastic price point, Aqua Spa is also a family owned business made in the United States down in Texas. In addition to supporting a US based business, this means that Aqua Spa controls their own manufacturing process which has enabled them to remove all the unnecessary chemicals from their product including formaldehyde.
Aqua Spa products will retail for $7.97 via Wal-Mart and $9.99 via Amazon starting in March.
Aqua Spa offers three lines of products: Sooth, Relax and Energize. Sooth (my personal favorite) is made with eucalyptus and mint and has a cooling effect that melts away tiredness in your muscles and helps you clear your head. Relax is made with lavender and chamomile for a calming relief. Finally, Energize is made with citrus and ginger to boost your energy and sharpen your senses. The body lotion, bath salts, body oil and body wash are available in all three lines.
After testing the fabulous products from Aqua Spa, our evening would not have been complete without a spin around the pool at AQUA for the newest fitness craze — AquaCycling. AquaCycling is just like it sounds, a spin class that takes place in a pool, but the experience is anything but predictable. The bikes sit in a 4 foot deep pool which means when sitting on the bike you are in the water up to about your chest. The bikes don’t have the traditional flywheel and instead the force of the water is your resistance. The class takes the form of a regular spin class with a few water-enabled additions like “4th position” where you float off the back of the bike while pedaling to work your abs and the arms sections where you do swimming strokes, again using the water as resistance all while bopping along to upbeat pop music.
The class is a lot of fun an absolutely worth a try. As an avid spinner myself, I was pleasantly surprised at how much resistance the water provides and the arm and abs sections in particular had me breaking a sweat. This is also a great workout to try if you are pregnant. I am currently 5 months pregnant and the weightlessness of the pool combined with the low impact resistance was a great way for me to get a comfortable workout in even with my growing baby bump.
To try AquaCycling for yourself, visit AQUA at it’s Tribeca location.
