Aqua Cycling What: Just in from Paris, Aqua Cycling takes your spin class into the pool -- promising a tranquil environment, and a more efficient workout with stationary bikes submerged in four feet of water. But this isn't your grandma's water aerobics class. Aqua Cycling is like SoulCycle transported to the spa. The boutique workout promises to reduce cellulite through the active massage created by water friction and muscle movement. And with the low-impact, water-based workout, you're less likely to get overly sore or strained. It's perfect for people trying to relieve any joint injuries, as well as pregnant women who want to stay active. But low-impact doesn't equal low-energy. The class is a killer workout because of the water resistance your legs have to push through while churning the pedals. Dress in your chicest one-piece, and the studio will provide special rubber shoes.
Where: One studio in Tribeca, expanding to LA soon
Why: Because Parisians know a thing or two about svelte figures (and cheese).
Who: Swimmers, spin addicts in search of a new medium, anyone with muscle or joint injuries
