Hydrobike provide a low impact cardiovascular activity, making it a great option for people with knee and back issues. It gives your heart a good workout so that it stays healthy and strong. Hydrobiking strengthens your leg muscles as you’re pedaling through the water using your thighs and calves. The Hydrobike will help you burn fat at a phenomenal rate. Stamina levels remain higher as you don’t tire out quickly.

Skiing is to keep yourself steady on the slippery slope to help balance yourself, you naturally engage your core stability muscles ultimately results in toning abs. Jet skiing is a great sport that burns a lot of calories. An average 68 kg (150 lbs) person can burn 238 calories in the span of just 30 minutes.
Fly boarding requires use of your legs and core to maintain balance, steering the board and fly above the water surface strengthening the abdominal muscles, quads, hamstrings and calves. It uses every muscle in your body thus improves flexibility. This sport sets out to give you an adrenaline rush; increased levels of adrenaline in your blood signals break down the glycogen, substance that provides your muscles with glucose, the primary source of fuel in your body.
