About Classic HYDRO-FIT Cuffs (Buckle Closure)

Working out with HYDRO-FIT Cuffs in deep water

The most versatile product we make

HYDRO-FIT Cuffs enhance the natural buoyancy and resistance of water, giving you more training benefits and making the most out of the time you spend in the water. They’re the hardest working gear we make. Versatile and durable—use them on your ankles, around your waist, on your arms or around your wrists. Cuffs do it all, in both deep and shallow water.

Our Classic Cuffs feature a quick-release buckle closure for an extra firm fit. Classic Cuffs are the preferred choice if you work out aggressively in the water. When worn as a belt, Cuffs will fit up to a 54" waist. Available in Blue/Black color combination. Sold in pairs. Proudly Made In the USA.

Why choose HYDRO-FIT Cuffs?

Water exercise is all about moving more water and creating more resistance—an irresistible combination for a great workout. Get more from your workouts with the most versatile water exercise products we make! HYDRO-FIT Cuffs and Mini Cuffs adapt to a wide range of water workouts—from shallow to deep water, from very intense to more moderate and relaxed—and function as four different pieces of water exercise equipment, all in one!

Exercise your options

Ankle Cuffs: Underwater, Cuffs works like ankle weights on land, toning and strengthening all the major muscles in your lower body. Watch our fitting video for securing your Cuffs on your ankles.

Buoyancy Belt: Fasten your Cuffs together to create a comfortable and secure buoyancy belt for deep water exercise and water running. The Cuffs segmented design distributes buoyancy evenly around your torso and fits waists up to 54".

Wrist Cuffs: On your wrists, Cuffs provide the resistance and buoyancy of buoyant barbells to tone and strengthen all the major muscles in your upper body. Our Cuffs hold onto you, you don’t have to hold onto them—less grip, more stability, and secure comfort.

Arm Cuffs: Around your upper arms, Cuffs give you buoyant support in deep or shallow water. Ideal for abdominal toning exercises and deep water activities where a buoyancy belt is not suitable.

How to fit your Classic HYDRO-FIT Cuffs

“Classic” refers to the quick-release buckle closure system on your Cuffs, the original closure on our patented Cuffs (U.S. Patent No. 4, 858,913). Here’s how to put your Classic Cuffs on your ankles, only one of four positions Cuffs can be worn. Ankle placement is suitable for both shallow and deep water.

Step 1: Fold your Cuff into a triangle as you place the stirrup strap below the arch of your foot. Position your Cuff with the quick-release buckle facing the outside of your foot and the stirrup strap resting loosely below the arch of your foot. Fasten the quick-release buckle.

Step 2: Stabilize the Cuff by pinching it closed with one hand. With your other hand, tighten the large strap by pulling it across and in front of the Cuff. The direction of pull is very important. If you tighten your Cuffs while in the water, pull the large strap across, not up. Pulling up on the strap will actually loosen your Cuff. Tuck the strap end over and behind the secured strap.

Step 3: Adjust the stirrup strap by pulling down on the loose end of the strap. Secure in place by fastening the Velcro-like closure to the strap and sliding the stirrup strap “stay” to secure the strap’s position.

Avoid positioning your Cuff too low on your leg. Correct positioning allows your ankle to move freely without your Cuff touching the top of your foot.

To remove your Classic Cuffs, simply release the quick-release buckle. Be sure you’re in a stable environment when you put on and take off your Cuffs.


Simulating the exercise action of crosscountry skiing in the deep water is an excellent form of non-impact aerobic exercise. In this version sweep your arms forward and back to recruit more muscles and strengthen your core.

  1. Hydro-Fit flotation cuffs 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Mar 2017

    I purchased these to help my husband with his recovery from the stroke he had in October 2016. The flexibility of these (removable flotation foam pads) make them very usable for both leg and arm exercises in the pool. The cuffs can be used together or separately as he needs and give him just that little extra to help retrain his left knee to bend as it should. I am very happy with the product and its quality and adjustability.

  2. Wonderful 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Mar 2017

    Great product! Sturdy construction which I expect to last. Takes exercise to new fun level.

  3. HYDRO-FIT IS A MUST 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2017

    Love my cuff my new puppy chewed my last pair and I immediately purchased a second pair. My water aerobic workouts are so awesome with my new cuffs. Really keeps me in shape for a Senior. It takes awhile to get used to them but once you do there is no turning back. Thank you for this great product

  4. Great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Dec 2015

    I found the cuffs to be great! A very good workout. Made me keep my back straight and properly aligned.

  5. Wow! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Nov 2015

    This was a surprise. I had no idea that the cuffs would make my workout so much more effective. I've only used them 3 times, but can really feel the difference. I use them with the gloves and found that I'm getting resistance every way I can. If you want to beef up your water workout, this is a way to do it. I purchased the Classic Hydro-Fit Cuffs. My husband has been using the mini-cuffs and he really likes them, also.

  6. Wonderful product but beware there are two sizes 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Nov 2015

    There are two sizes of float belts and either size can be worn on either ankles or wrists. I made the mistaken assumption that the larger floats were for ankles and the smaller ones for wrists, so I ordered the larger ones. Women may find the larger size a bit bulky and unmanageable when using them for aqua fitness. On the other hand, after only a few days of use, I can already feel the positive changes in my body. Now all my exercise friends want sets too!

  7. 2nd pair 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Oct 2015

    I bought my first set of Hydro-Cuffs in 2008 when my Dr suggested I take up water exercise classes. Water is one of the best exercises for those of us with MS. I used my cuffs almost every day until 2015, when they finally ripped out at the straps and the corners.
    I received my 2nd set today and expect to get 7 years out of them.
    I am a totally satisfied customer.

  8. Great lower workout 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Sep 2015

    They Hydro-fit cuffs are a great product to use for those who are feeling the "age" in their lower extremities. Water resistance combined with no impact gives you just what you need to strengthen. I would recommend them to anyone who has been feeling the woes of aging !!
    A friend of mine from our grandparent support group, who is a personal trainer, suggested I try them, brought hers over and demonstrated them. When I got out of the pool I could immediately tell the difference...so I purchased some of my own, couldn't wait for them to arrive and have been using them every day!

  9. Very Helpful 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jun 2015

    A friend introduced me to the Hydro-Fit Cuffs. I have been doing deep water aerobics for years and never felt the need to use accessories. However, after using these cuffs, I have changed my mind, and changed up my deep water workout. These really take stretches and range of motion to a new level.

  10. Wish I had these sooner! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th May 2015

    Having had 2 major back surgeries, these Hydro-Fit cuffs are excellent for deep water exercises. They allow you to keep afloat without a belt, and are very useful for work on the abs and legs with no pain or stress on the entire back of any kind.

    Only wish I'd had these during my rehab.

    Excellent product and I highly recommend them for back rehab.
