Trendy Gym Equipment: Cycling In A Hot Tub
What happens when you cross a stationary bicycle with a jacuzzi? You get an $18,000 cycling machine, called Fit Wet.
Fit Wet bikes are mounted inside individual cabinets that fill up with fresh, warm water in three minutes.
The manufacturer claims that Fit Wet burns more calories than stationary bikes, reduces cellulite, provides injury therapy, and eliminates skin toxins.
VINTAGE WATER CYCLING
The concept of water cycling isn’t new. Hydro cycles came about around 1890. Do-it yourself bicycle frames were mounted on pontoons, and fitted with propellers. The pedals provided power as the water bikes floated on water.
FIT WET ISN’T FOR EVERYONE
Aside from price, the Fit Wet hydro bicycle isn’t recommended if you fall into any one of these categories:
People under 4’9″ in height.
People under the age of 16 years old.
People who weight over 440 lbs.
Anyone without physician’s release.
People who have cardiovascular disease, heart failure, hypertension, or phlebitis.
People who have skin infections.
People who have tumors.
