Good Exercise Option with Low Impact on Joints
FDF Newport Challenge AR Water Rower
✭✭✭✭✩

“I purchased this machine for a good overall workout, in terms of cardio. Some reviews may say that there isn’t much resistance but I think that is misleading as this unit isn’t suppose to replace any muscle building equipment. Like a treadmill or bike you need to be on this machine for some period of time before you feel the effects. Personally for me there is enough resistance and it seems like the harder you pull the more resistance is felt. Try pulling hard at a CONSTANT rate above 30 SPM for 30-60 minutes and you will probably be panting at the end.

The feature of software integration is really great too. Hook up a laptop with the on board computer of rower and it will be more fun than just the basic setup. You could compete against other Fist Degree rowers and also track your rowing history. You could get other fancy accessories from First Degree too but what comes out of the box is a good starting point.”

Pros: easy setup, software integration
