Cardio Equipment » First Degree Fitness
First Degree Fitness was founded in 2000 with the primary goal of offering the commercial fitness industry a new range of equipment that combined robustness with simplicity. Their Fluid Rowers and Upper Body Ergometers use a patented Fluid Technology variable resistance system making ingenious use of a twin-chamber tank.Water can be transferred to and from the two chambers by means of a lever or dial operation. Water in the outer chamber provides resistance to paddles when rotated by the pulling force of the user. Any water in the inner chamber “passive” chamber does not provide resistance. Thus the resistance can be varied through the water level in the outer tank and the effort of the user. The result is to give users of all ages and body types the ability to enjoy a perfectly tailored workout, with all the fitness benefits that accrue as a result.
