classes, enabling those with busy day jobs to exercise together, bond, and have fun. Over the years, The Ripple Club has received an abundance of positive feedback from those who have participated in its excellent programmes. For example, one review states, “Lessons are never boring with the TRC instructors, who constantly challenge you to go beyond your perceived limits while providing encouragement so that you get the most out of each class. Aqua biking with The Ripple Club has always been fun and fulfilling for me!” As a result of the outstanding classes it delivers, The Ripple Club has been awarded Best Aquatic Fitness Company, Singapore, in the Global Business Awards 2023. We congratulate Alicia and Yannick on this achievement and wish them the best of luck in the years to come.

This meant that all sports were off limits for her, the only exceptions being swimming, aqua aerobics, and aqua biking. Alicia was inspired to try aqua biking and has been hooked ever since. She found that it was the only thing that kept her knee pain at bay. In 2011, Alicia moved to Singapore, where she struggled to find an aqua biking class to join. For this reason, she decided to build her own aqua fitness community with the help of her husband, Yannick Dedigama. In 2012, they quit their jobs, invested in 13 aqua bikes and established Aquaspin™, now known as The Ripple Club. The pair believe that everyone has the right to healthy, invigorating workouts that provide them with physical and mental benefits without injury and unnecessary fatigue. Today, as co-founders of The Ripple Club, Alicia and Yannick are proud to have built a growing Ripple community, which continues to welcome people from across the world. They love seeing more and more members who are keen to explore the water’s natural resistance and the revolutionary benefits of aquatic exercise. Water is the perfect training ground because it protects the joints, prevents injury, and provides a natural resistance for strength and endurance training. The Ripple Club offers a range of revolutionary waterbased training programmes, including Ripple Ride, Ripple Box, Ripple Circuit, and Ripple Virtual. Ripple Ride classes involve pedalling on stationary bikes against the resistance of the water. Ripple Box sessions are an energetic aqua kickboxing class. Ripple Circuit classes are high-paced cardio and strength sessions that incorporate aqua bikes, water-resistance strength equipment, and plenty of fun. Ripple Virtual classes enable those who can’t attend in person to join the Ripple community in the water from their home via the high-tech Ripple connected bike. Equipped with a waterproof screen and headset, a heart rate monitor to help you track your workouts, and even an in-app leader board, you can now experience The Ripple Club from the comfort of your own home.
