About First Degree Fitness
First Degree Fitness was founded in 2000 with the primary goal of offering the commercial fitness industry a new range of equipment that combined robustness with simplicity.
Above all our goal was to give users of all ages and body types the ability to enjoy a perfectly tailored workout, with all the fitness benefits that accrue as a result.
Why did we base our company around a new resistance system?
At the heart of any item of fitness equipment is its resistance system. Without resistance, the user would be merely “pushing at an open door”, and the simple fact is that all the energy expended by the user during a workout needs to be ultimately dissipated by some means. With an accumulation of over half a century in this industry, we have encountered items of equipment that come far too close to the “pushing at an open door” example, and conversely others so demanding that only elite athletes could use them without fear of injury. We saw that full and instant adjustability was essential to achieving our goals, and uniquely in this industry we believed that exploring the realm of fluid technology would hold the key.
Experience the Difference – More than just a slogan!
