Rowing just might be the most efficient exercise ever. With each stroke, pretty much every part of the body is being used. It may even let you skip crunches, because a big part of rowing is core strength. People think it’s all arms, but rowing is much more legs and core. Rowing is a full-body cardiovascular exercise and it keeps the heart rate elevated. But then it’s leg press after leg press and row after row, so there’s a huge strength-training component to it too.
With about ten of our fifteen machines being rowers, it has been asked whether we are just a rowing machine company. Well, we consider that we are first and foremost a fitness equipment company, but we know and understand the benefits of rowing as the best total body aerobic exercise available, and very purposefully chose to make a rower our flagship product.
We even employ a professional rowing coach as an advisor on product development and applications. That’s how seriously committed we are to ensuring our customers get the very best out of their First Degree Fitness equipment.
