Hydro Rider: The fitness craze that’s causing ripples

Forget the helmet, gloves and lycra. All you need for this cycling workout are your budgie smugglers and a pair of water shoes. Hydro Rider is an underwater spin class that’s making waves.

There’s no need for scuba gear; you’ll be water cooled and your joints fully supported as you burn up to 800 calories an hour. Best of all, nobody will be nagging you to wipe down the equipment after you’re done.
