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. Great ankle cuffs to "up" your workout! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jan 2019

    I had a double knee replacement 11 months ago. I'm getting stronger in the pool than I've ever been. I've been using the mini cuffs and decided it was time to "up my workout" with these full size cuffs. I've started out by just using them to water walk, side step and grapevine. I can feel my legs working harder! Just what I needed to "up my workout"! Note: I have rheumatoid arthritis and when my cuffs arrived I couldn't snap the buckle. With some help from my husband and a little practice at home I was able to do it and didn't have a problem when I got to the pool!

  2. BEST EVER water tool! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jul 2018

    I started using a borrowed pair of Hydro-Fit cuffs, and I used them daily for 12 days and went down a pant size. So, I created a deep water jogging class, that I've been teaching for about five years now. This year, I've added another class, and this is a Deep Water Running Club. It's been great to see all of these women, and a few good men getting in shape!

  3. Exercise and fun 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2018

    I got these because 2 of my girlfriends use them in the pool frequently. We spend 30-45 minutes doing various kicks and runs and talking the whole time. The cuffs are easy to put on and remove and stay on like their supposed to. They work just as advertised. The only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is that I had to pull the straps to the max to get an appropriate fit for my relatively skinny (?) ankles.

  4. Great Fitness Tool 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jan 2018

    I had already used these as they are provided at the fitness pool. I loved using them so much that I decided to get a pair of my own so I don't have to constantly adjust them for the perfect fit every morning.

  5. Hydro Fit cuffs improve workout 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Nov 2017

    After 17 years of aquacise I finally purchased my own cuffs. Our local athletic club has worn out velcro cuffs, and they don't hold tight. My new clip cuffs stay in place and work my leg muscles. I am really happy with my new cuffs.

  6. Durable! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jun 2017

    I enjoy the versatility of these cuffs and the quality. I have some cuffs that over 5 years old!

  7. HYDRO-FIT cuffs, like their other products, are the best!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2017

    I have been involved with water exercise since 2000. Without any doubt I have found HYDRO-FIT to be quality products. The company is accommodating and easy to contact and work with. In all, I give HYDRO-FIT the highest rating.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. HYDRO-FIT IS A MUST 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2017
