New York’s only in-the-pool cycling studio is adding a new out-of-the-water offering: an in-house spa with a celebrity facialist.

Starting in January, Aqua Studio will he home to the first Manhattan outpost of Thuyen Nguyen’s La Don Spa, which opened in Wainscott in 2012 and serves a swank Hamptons clientele. Nguyen’s private clients include Uma Thurman, Jennifer Aniston, and Natalie Portman. (Maybe one of them will show up to pedal next to you?)

At Aqua, Nguyen himself will provide all services in a private room, including his “insta-lift” facial and signature Vietnamese-French inspired massage. So you can get you workout and bodywork without even changing out of your swimsuit. —Lisa Elaine Held
