Gawker Staff Writer Caity Weaver and Associate Editor Leah Beckmann took a trip to AQUA Studios in Tribeca, owned by the tres chic Esther Gauthier, to try some under water cycling. They chatted about it here.

I went to photograph the joint, and found that Ester is indeed fabulous, cycling in a pool of water has been doing great things to Luke's abs—I mean, beauty—and the water shoes are amazing. Unfortunately, because of their women only policy I was not allowed to take a class (though Esther assured me that the policy will change eventually).
