First Degree Fitness

For more than 15 years, First Degree Fitness has been designing and developing fitness products that are inspired by real life. Our passion is to revolutionise the way people think and feel about exercise. After all, it is your motivation that drives our innovation.

Since the launch of our first fluid rower in 2001, we have rapidly developed a reputation as the creators of the world’s finest rowing ergometers. From indoor rowing to fluid resistance cross-fit training and medical rehabilitation, we have created an indoor rowing ergometer to suit every application.

The Ultimate Circuit For POWER ENDURANCE TRAINING

WHAT IS POWERZONE TM?

PowerZone TM is a concentric circuit training system designed for all commercial applications. PowerZone TM brings together six complementary fluid resistance machines that combine strength, endurance and power training into one. The PowerZone TM pieces form the basis for the ultimate circuit workout and include: POWER  CUBE • POWER UBE • POWER CLIMB • POWER ROW • POWER PRESS • POWER ERG

FLUID INNOVATION TECHNOLOGY THE SECRET BEHIND VARIABLE WATER RESISTANCE ROWING

Not all rowing machines offer adjustable resistance – First Degree Fitness rowing machines are unique, however, with a patented twin tank design which transfers water to and from a passive tank, to an active tank. This enables the user to select an appropriate and progressive level of resistance by adjusting the amount of water in the active tank.

CONCENTRIC POWER TRAINING

Delivering concentric resistance only, PowerZoneTM applies resistance in the drive phase of a movement, allowing the recovery phase to be virtually resistance-free – meaning ballistic movements can be achieved without having to deal with any recovery phase consequences. 

Perfect for High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), PowerZoneTM provides the load for the explosive effort phase, burns calories rapidly for weight loss and conditions the cardiovascular system in a very time efficient manner.

Fluid Force and its role in concentric power training

Moving explosively with weights can be counterproductive for many training purposes. Moving weights at higher speeds means the weight develops momentum. This momentum results in a reduction of the load through the later stages of the specific movement. FDF’s patented fluid innovation, applied to PowerZoneTM machines, develops virtually zero momentum. The water resistance twin tank provides a consistent load at virtually any speed – the fluid force applied is controlled by adjusting the position of the resistance lever on the fluid tank.
