First Degree Fitness Newport Water-Based Rowing Machine

The First Degree Fitness Newport Water-Based Rowing Machine is a great way to bring the professional intensity of a gym workout into the comfortable confines of your home. Its sleek and stylish build make very good use of space, while its compact and minimal structural design allow for effortless accommodation. Its frame is made from high caliber aluminum, which makes it highly stable and adds years to its lifespan. The frame sports a red finish. The Newport Water-Based Rowing Machine from First Degree Fitness is equipped with an LCD console that displays distance, calories, pulse, and time, while offering four preset workout programs for you to try.


  • Latest hyper-drive linkage will challenge the strongest of rowers
  • Performance monitor - Computer displays: Time, distance, 500 m split time, stroke per minute, calories per hour, watts, interval training and optional heart rate reception (heart rate reception not included)
  • Variable water resistance: Simply adjust the yellow water valve control to automatically transfer water from the inner tank to the outer tank creating more or less resistance
  • No dead spots: Triple bladed impeller system offers instant catch. The pull is strong and consistent through the complete rowing stroke. Other rowers offer little to no resistance at the beginning or end of a stroke
  • Highest quality anodized aluminum seat rail for smoothness, appearance, strength, and durability
  • Super comfortable seat running on precision bearings and rollers for absolute smoothness
  • Delron seat wheels with precision bearings and custom extruded, anodized seat rail deliver smoothest seat action of any rower

As described

from Olive Branch, MS – Verified Buyer

I at first was worried about being 6'4" and just being able to fit. On top of that knowing my wife would have to readjust for her midget feet. We have not had a problem and love it! It came in without a scratch and assembly took less than half an hour. As far as functionality, it is a very smooth row without any catching or jerking. I do have one con, but it won't affect my rating because Wayfair settled the issue(even though it took 5 days to settle). It was listed for a certain price on Wayfair, and a little bit higher elsewhere like Costco. I received a shipping confirmation with no tracking number. After a few days without a number or coming home to magically seeing it at my door, I had to call them instead of them calling me. It wasn't backordered BUT the price had gone up $647!!! It took them two days to decide to honor my purchase, which they did. Great buy!!!

First water based rower

from Palestine, TX – Verified Buyer

I had read all the benefits of rowing prior to purchasesing this Machine and was ready. The assembly took little to no time due to it being 80% assembled in the box, just bolt on the long rail and fill with water (it came with a siphon pump). The workout is brutal, it fools you when you first go through the motion and you feel as though it is easy, and then soon after you realize how much time you have left. I've past through the initial soreness and look forward to many more long rows with my machine.

Product: good; Deal: better; Customer Service: best

from VA – Verified Buyer

The machine is small compared to others, and takes less space. It even looks good in my living room. The water sound is not loud at all, and it's very soothing. The size is good for both kids and adults. It's a fabulous family fitness machine.

from Palm Bay, FL – Verified Buyer

We enjoy the rower, the noise puts the baby to sleep for naps while we get a workout. Adjustable resistance works better than I expected. I would recommend this to a friend
