12 ways to get the most out of ROM Plus
ROM Plus allows our clients to get the full Range of Motion Experience. An addition to your one-on-one Personal Coaching, it entitles the client to a wide range of benefits and inclusions.
In this article, we discuss the 12 ways to ensure you’re getting as much as possible out of ROM Plus.
1. Train at Range of Motion outside sessions with your Personal Coach:
The ‘sweet spot’ is three to four days of exercise per week. ROM Plus gives you full access to the facility to follow your ROM Programming. While there, do your best to organise some ‘Training Buddies’ sessions with other ROMMERs.
2. Over-communicate with your Personal Coach:
Your Personal Coach will help you manage all things ROM Plus. This is particularly useful when planning your training outside your one-on-one sessions. Start each session with a quick debrief of your training since you last saw them, and end it with a quick discussion of the training you’ll be doing before you see them again.
3. Attend Supervised Training:
Each week, we have multiple blocks of ‘Supervised Training’, where Dan is on hand to assist you in any way possible with your training for that day.
4. Take advantage of the caring and expertise of our other staff:
Sure, you’re Personal Coach is the most important person in your ‘ROM life’, but did you know all our other staff are also there to help you? They are always available to offer support and advice, so make sure you use this valuable resource.
5. Follow our Pre- and Post- Exercise Routines every visit:
This ten-step process will ensure you’re staying healthy and training optimally. The charts on the wall at Range of Motion will guide you through the process.
6. Attend the Saturday morning class:
9am to 10am every Saturday, these classes are a great way to start the weekend, with friends and fitness!
7. Attend events we host:
Every two months, we invite an outside expert to Range of Motion. This is either a Subject Matter Expert Coach (who runs a special two-hour Saturday class on a specific exercise discipline), or a Guest Lecturer who speaks to us on a health topic. We only host the best-of-the-best, so don’t miss out!
8. Attend our weekly workshop:
Before our weekly Saturday class each week, we run a 15 minute workshop on a movement or concept. It’s a great way to get a little extra coaching.
9. Get to know your ROM Programming:
ROM Programming is the software we’ve built to provide you with an individualised exercise program. Get to know (and use) as much of the functionality as possible to maximise your experience.
10. Take advantage of the Nutrition Coaching consults:
Every six months, we’ll contact you to arrange a free Nutrition Coaching Consult. In this consult, we’ll help you identify the most important areas of your nutrition to address, and guide you towards creating an environment that makes healthy habit formation easy.
11. Make use of all the resources we have available:
The resources on the walls at Range of Motion, the ‘resources’ tab on the Range of Motion website, and the resources available with the ROM Programming software have all been designed to make your training as simple and effective as possible.
12. Refer to the ROM Plus Manual:
Got questions? Unsure about anything? Of course, you can ask us questions at any time. But for an ‘all-in-one-place’ guide, check out the ROM Plus User Manual.
