Description

The First Degree Fitness Newport Challenge AR (Adjustable Resistance) rowing machine features our patented adjustable fluid resistance technology which allows the rower to control and adjust the resistance from 'Feather light' to 'Olympic sprint' load levels. Our water based system also delivers a smooth and consistent level of resistance throughout the entire rowing stroke without any dead spots or excessive load points. Unlike air blower based rowing machines which can produce unpleasant noise levels during hard use, the Newport AR fluid resistance tank is nearly silent. The Challenge AR features an advanced computer monitor which provides accurate feedback during use, an ergonomically designed seat that rides on precision bearings and rollers for absolute smoothness, an upgraded foot board with advanced heel support, and an innovative soft grip handle to reduce stress on the hands and wrists while rowing.

Doesn't work as described. 50% Restocking fee!
We bought this rowing machine last month and soon realized that there wasn't any difference in intensity between the settings 1 to 4. We obtained a return label and shipped the whole thing back properly via UPS ($70 worth of packaging) We had originally paid $970.92 and were stunned to be reimbursed only $$453.66. Who charges a 50% restocking fee. Daylight robbery. Buyer beware.

A Superb Rower.
First off, let me say that I am very impressed with this rower overall. I've had it for a month, and it's a superb machine. I'll list the things I don't like about it first, though. The foot straps are terrible. So much so that I consider them to be a design flaw. They're off-the-shelf straps that are like camera straps. In other words, they are designed as to be difficult to loosen. They're threaded through a plastic buckle and loosening them requires time and patience. I keep the straps loose enough that I can just remove my feet. I never tighten them down. And for the most part, you don't need to, if you use proper technique. The heels are too small for most modern athletic shoes. I've solved this issue by wearing Converse Chuck Taylors for my sessions. And they should absolutely, positively, include the heart rate monitor with this rower. It's sold separately for $51, and it's not even available on Amazon. I had to contact First Degree Fitness to find one. They shipped it from Canada for $51. Why not raise the price a little and just include it? With that out of the way, this is a *terrific* rower! Very, very smooth in operation. The seat glides across the rail very smoothly. It's a comfortable seat for most workouts, unless you stay on it an excessive amount of time. The pull strap is super smooth and the handles so comfortable that you don't even notice them. The ability to adjust the water level is way cooler than I thought it would be. Set it on "1" to warm up, or if you're just starting out as a rower. Even this level can give you a really good workout. Remember: the harder you pull, the more resistance the water will give you back. That's the beauty of using water. Set it to "4" and you have a really good workout ahead of you. It's just a matter of how hard you pull. If you pull lightly, even "4" will feel easy. Pull back hard and it will resist you quite strongly! It has three paddles in the tank, vs. two for the WaterRower, but I think they're a little smaller, so I suspect the resistance levels with the same amount of water are comparable. I wish the performance monitor gave you more than the basic settings. Don't get me wrong: it gives you most of what you need to know. Though "total calories burned" is a missing piece they absolutely should have put on it. But with the optional heart rate monitor, it tells you a lot. That said, programs would have been really nice. What I mean is games of sort to encourage you to go back and forth in intensity levels, like other rowers sometimes have. But the issues are really minor. I'm convinced this is really the best rower for the price, and that it will last many years, and that I won't get tired of it. It's not junky like piston rowers. It has resistance that varies on the fly, unlike magnetic rowers. It's not gigantic and loud, like air rowers. And it stores with a small footprint. I am very impressed.

Make a Clicking Noise - No Response From Manufacturer
I like the basic concept of the rower but after using it for one week it started making a clicking noise at a certain point of the pull and release. When I attempted to contact the company I realized that there is no phone number for them in the manual that came with the rower and I can't find one on their website. I filled out the request on their website but have not received a response. Very frustrating.

Nice Rower
It’s well made and nice to use. Everything feels overbuilt and smooth. The top resistance doesn’t feel that hard unless you pull it pretty fast. I was hoping at the top resistance you could pull slow and have a heavy resistance (although I’m not really aware of another rower that has a really heavy setting). I will also say as a parent I think it’s fairly quiet, but the difference between this and an air rower is that the water rowing noise is more tolerable. I can row in the room next to where my kids are sleeping and they’ll sleep right through it whereas an air rower wakes them up.

simple setup, easy to use
wish i got this sooner, been able to use this device solely and seldom pick up free weights or use a stationary bike and still get a great workout from just the rower alone. wish the straps were easier to take off (quicker release) and the handle bar could be slightly longer for those with wide shoulders but even for me its quite manageable. in use its real quiet, if door is closed no one even knows im using it.

High quality machine, great for full body workout
This is my first rower, and I really love it! It's very well-made, and I anticipate will hold up for many years. The seat is a nice height for me and the row length is generous, there's plenty of room for people taller than me to get a great workout (I'm 5'7".) I chose a water machine because I wanted the feel of pushing/pulling through real water, and I especially love the sound (it is sort of loud... my husband calls it my 'washing machine', but it doesn't bother us at all.) The negatives about this are: There's no way to save workout history, and and you can't track multiple splits during a single workout, the monitor display is offset, and sits behind the oars when they're racked, so it's difficult to see. These aren't so terrible, and I think the pros of this machine far outweigh these complaints. Overall, this is a great machine, well worth the price, and I highly recommend it.
