You think your spinning class is brutal, try it in the pool. That's right, it's called Hydroride and it's part of the new rage in fitness: fusion. The idea is to merge traditional exercises with new formats. Fusion fitness is hip in big cities and gaining popularity elsewhere. Some other creative classes being offered: cycle karaoke, disco yoga, cardio striptease, aqua tai chi and yogilates. If your fitness center hasn't caught on yet, check out the video world.
