The resistance system is a core feature of rowers. Depending on the chosen system, the rowing motion can be regular and even or similar to rowing in nature , where the resistance varies depending on the pulling force. Accessories such as a training computer with training programmes, a heart rate meter, a USB/PC port as well as transport wheels make for a more comfortable and effective training and contribute to positive ratings
High stability depends on the construction of the frame, its weight and the floor space of the machine. The more stable the rower, the higher the max. user weight and the more durable the machine. Rowing machines with good stability stand more safely during intensive training with vigorous strokes.
The interaction of resistance system, running rails, seat castors, pulling rope and frame construction is extremely important for the motion sequence. A rowing machine with a smooth motion sequence provides extra joint-friendly training and increases muscle activity.

Description: First Degree Rowing Machine Apollo Pro V

Sport-Tiedje Expert Review (Info)
The First Degree Rowing Machine Apollo Pro V is a professional rowing machine with water-resistance with a stable frame made from american ashwood and steel.

The combination of water resistance and the high quality belt drive makes the row of the First Degree Rowing Machine Apollo Pro V calm, silent and balanced. Additionally, you can store the First Degree Rowing Machine Apollo Pro V in an upright position after training, saving space when the rowing machine is not in use.

Apollo Pro Plus V – familiar quality with even more resistance

The First Degree Rowing Machine Apollo Pro V is made out of high quality ashwood together with an exeptionally stable steel frame, making rowing machine also suitable for fitness studios. With the strong steel frame construction, the maximum user weight of the rowing machine is 150 kg. With the new belt drive your training is smoother and quieter. The extra long pull rope helps you achieve even higher stroke frequency.

The ergonomically shaped handlebars and the ball-bearing rolling seat finish the design and functionality of the First Degree Rowing Machine Apollo Pro V.

The Apollo Plus V has a double tank resistance system. With this new system the resistance can be increased up to 15% when compared to the previous model.

LCD monitor and Bluetooth compatibility

With the new LCD monitor from First Degree Fitness it is not only possible to measure all the relevant data such as time, distance, 500m interval, strokes per minute, resistance level, calories per hour and performance in watts, it is also possible to connect the machine with your smartphone or tablet. This means you can check your data and training successes anywhere.

Great machine, simple to operate console, resistance setting is simple and works very well. Self cleaning rails are great, very smooth, design is very quality and low maintenance.

Entscheidungsfindung: Zur Auswahl standen für mich Geräte mit Luft- und mit Wasserwiderstand. Luftwiderstand schied bald aus, da einerseits mir das Geräusch nicht behagte und auch die Geräte mit Wasserwiderstand im "geparkten" Zustand weniger Platz benötigen. Die Entscheidung zwischen Waterrower und First Degree Fitnes... [Read more]s fiel aufgrund des für mich angenehmeren Zug-Verhaltens (kein Totpunkt wie beim Waterrower) und der 5-fache Verstellmöglichkeit des Widerstandes für das First Degree Rudergerät. Aufgrund meiner Statur entschied ich mich für die Pro Variante (stabilere, da höhere Schiene und Gewährleistung für professionelle Nutzung), somit war nur mehr die Entscheidung zwischen Viking Pro V und Apollo Pro V. Der einzige Unterschied zwischen den beiden genannten Geräten besteht darin, daß beim Viking der Rahmen um den Wassertank aus Holz und beim Apollo aus Stahlrohr besteht. Der Viking sieht durch sein Holz sicherlich "edler" aus, ein Preisunterschied von €500 (Apollo war in Aktion) ließ mich aber für den Apollo entscheiden. Zusammenbau: Geliefert wird das Rudergerät in 2 Paketen, ein Paket für die Schienen, das andere (größere Paket) beinhaltet den Rahmen samt Wassertank und Zubehör (Sitz, etc.). Die Anleitung für den Zusammenbau ist gut verständlich, jedoch gestaltete sich der Zusammenbau schwieriger als gedacht. Anscheinend passen die Bohrungen in der Schiene und am Rahmen des Wassertanks nicht 100% überein bzw. liegt der Wassertank zu eng auf den Schienen auf. Ein Festziehen der Schrauben konnte erst mit Hilfe ein paar Tricks (z.B. Gerät auf den Kopf stellen, damit die Schienen oben sind und leichter erreichbar sind) bewerkstelligt werden. Die Befüllung mit 17L Mineralwasser (war ein Tip des Verkaufsberaters) ging problemlos von statten. Positiv ist anzumerken, daß der Schriftzug "Apollo Pro V" nur als Aufkleber beiliegt, somit müssen die Holzschienen nicht damit verunstaltet werden. Benutzung: Auch wenn die neue Version schon mit einem "Computer" mit Bluetooth Anbindung ausgestattet ist, heißt das noch lange nicht, daß ein Bluetooth Herzfrequenzmesser verwendet werden kann. Bluetooth kann nur als Verbindung zur App FluidRower verwendet werden. D.h. wenn die Anzeige der Herzfrequenz erwünscht ist, ist zusätzlich der Kauf eines Herzfrequenzempfängers notwendig. Die App gibt es erst seit kurzem und ist leider noch stark ausbaufähig, Programme für den PC sind mir nicht bekannt. Die auf der Produktseite angegebene USB-Verbindung ist bei den neuen Geräten auch nicht mehr vorhanden. Der Computer und die fehlende Software stellen für mich auch den größten Nachteil dar, darum auch "nur" 4 Sterne. Verglichen mit den Mitbewerbern (z.B. Concept 2) ist hier noch ordentlich Luft nach oben, speziell unter Berücksichtigung des doch eher stolzen Preises. Die bisherige Trainings-Erfahrung ist sehr positiv, besonders die Widerstandseinstellung ist sehr hilfreich. Prinzipiell kommt mir das Rudergerät in der eigenen Wohnung lauter als im großen Ausstellungsraum vor, da bisher aber keine Beschwerden von Nachbarn einlangten, dürfte das aber kein Problem darstellen. Bei Nicht-Benutzung ist das Rudergerät schnell aufgestellt und benötigt nur geringen Platz. Empfehlenswert ist der Kauf einer Unterlagsmatte, was beim Preis für den Rower auch nicht mehr ins Gewicht fällt. [Show less]

Excelente máquina de remo. El hecho de conocerla del gimnasio me hizo no tener ninguna duda a la hora de comprarlo. Presenta un bastidor muy robusto, y tanto la remada como el asiento son muy silenciosos. Viene con todo lo necesario para el montaje. Muy alta calidad en acabados y remada.

Nach einem Vergleich der verschiedenen Rudergeräte haben wir uns für diese Modell entschieden. In unseren Augen ist es ein großer Vorteil, dass man den Widerstand des Wassers in 4 Stufen einstellen kann. Der Unterschied ist dann auch bei Zeiten von 30-60min auf dem Gerät sehr gut sichtbar. Das Gerät sorgt auch dafür, d... [Read more]ass man aktiv dran bleibt. Es ist ein ganzheitliches Körpertraining und hilft dabei ein besseres Körpergefühl und weniger Zwicken im Körper zu haben. Der Kauf hat sich definitiv gelohnt. Es macht viel weniger Geräusche als ein Gerät mit Luftwiderstand. Es ist sehr angenehm in der Pflege und kann Raumsparend in die Ecke gestellt werden. [Show less]
