Floating Fitness Mats
Floating fitness mats are popping up in aquatic centers all over the country. These mats are made to float on water challenging the user to use his/her core strength to balance on top of it, using the same principles of fitness paddleboards have become accustomed to.. In a typical class, an instructor will lead the class through many different workouts, including yoga, pilates, and even throwing in some crossfit moves (floating burpees anyone?) to get your blood pumping.
Studio cycling has long been a workout favorite, as different routines and techniques have been used and loved by many fitness buffs around the world. Now there’s a twist to it — cycling underwater! Well, not completely, users shoulders and above are out of the water while the rest of the body sits on a cycling bike submerged in the water.
