The wait is over ! We can now enjoy aquabiking in Abu Dhabi
You have certainly observed how spinning was a huge hit in the Capital these last two years with a large number of fitness centers now proposing many different spinning classes.
What we have been waiting for are the aquabiking sessions, that finally landed here in July 2017.
Seatime is a new company that provides different aquabiking sessions throughout Abu Dhabi. At the moment, you can enjoy these inside the pool at Abu Dhabi City Golf Club, and both in the pool and in the sea at Hiltonia Beach Club Corniche. The company is looking forward to expanding in other locations around Abu Dhabi.
Seatime proposes first timers a session that mixes, cardio and body sculpt with intensity varying from low to moderate and high.
We were among the first to go try this activity this summer and started with a 45 minutes aquabiking session for beginners.
At 8.15am in the morning, we were in the pool , ready for it. After a quick explanation about how to settle the bike to our size, our trainer started with a 10 minute warm up followed by a 30 minute aquabiking session and we stretched for the last 5 minutes.
The session was very dynamic, with many different exercises lasting 30 seconds to a minute each, and made our whole body work, including the upper part. Our trainer paid attention to explaining carefully each position for us to make the most of each exercise and encouraged us to drink water regularly throughout the session. What we also liked is the activity is outdoors which is not even painful, even at summer time as sessions occur early morning or late in the evening. Time really flew and we cannot wait to head back for more.
So, if you feel like trying, don’t hesitate to go browse their website to check out the different programs and locations on where to book an aquabiking session.
Just be warned it is mandatory to book first as this activity is already getting super popular and there are only 8 people max per session. We have no doubt it will be THE popular workout this coming season.
On a practical note, no need to wear specific shoes, as you just bike barefoot in the water. Just don’t forget to bring along a cap, sunscreen and your bottle of water.
The pool at Abu Dhabi City Golf Club is located right beside the restaurant Sushi Maru inside Abu Dhabi City Golf Club.
