Alberto de Leon Herrera Monterrey N.L. Mexico – ROM Owner Since 2007 (Click on this to read full story)

I own a ROM machine since April 2007. [...] My legs, arms, back, shoulders, etc., feel, look, and perform much better than they ever had. I am much healthier and stronger. At my 50 years of age that's something I thought was going to be hard to accomplish. I can lift heavy objects which I couldn't lift before. When I climb steps, I do it in 3 by 3 very easily. I now put on my socks and shoes without sitting, just like you mentioned in your video. Now my friends have started to ask me more about my ROM now that they have seen the improvements on me. I feel very good about how I look and how my body performs now, and I know it's going to get better in years to come.

During the first 45 days of use I reduced about an inch from my waist. My muscle mass went up, and my fat percentage went down. My blood pressure went back to normal, (I had high blood pressure and I was taking medication for it, I no longer need it). My aerobic condition definitely improved. I dropped 7 minutes from my usual 4 mile run. [...]

Now that I’ve been using your machine for almost one year I’ll try to relate my experience with it. After the very first workout, which was upper body for four minutes, my chest ached/hurt because of the deep breathing the workout had required – this lasted an hour or so. Then the very next morning I realized while reaching for my shoes that I couldn’t remember ever feeling so limber... That next day was my first try at the lower body workout, and I only lasted about one minute.

[...] Initially my shoulders and forearms were sore while doing the four minutes on the upper body, but this only lasted a month. My breathing, while dramatically revved up, quickly improved (no more hurt). Slowly I increased my time on the lower body and after three months had worked up to four minutes. Meanwhile my upper body was more toned/muscled and I had gained two or three pounds. While pulling weeds one day I suddenly realized that my thighs were so much stronger that, heck, I could squat all day! Six months after beginning on the R.O.M. I discovered that I was now able to do a full length stretch just before getting out of bed and not run the risk of spasms in the lower legs. Two months ago the strength of my thighs saved me from a fall. Literally pulled me up when I had been within inches of sprawling on the asphalt. My newfound breathing capability is noticed by me almost daily. [...]

I purchased the machine on or about March 4 2005. Actually that was when it was delivered to my home. Almost a year and a half has gone by since that time. [...] My results have been nothing but spectacular. I have dropped almost 60 pounds of body weight. [...]

There is one more detail I want to share with you and hopefully others out there. Last year around the holiday's I had to go and have X-rays done of my right knee. The comment that my orthopedic surgeon made to me was “most people with a knee as bad as yours are coming to me for knee replacement surgery". As you can well imagine there is not a lot of cartilage left in my knee. Even with that pronouncement I have continued to use the machine everyday. The fact that there is no jarring what so ever in the basic movement has allowed me to work my lower body every other day with no adverse results. Quite to the contrary my leg muscles have gotten so much stronger that today I actually have less pain and discomfort then when I first began. It is a real tribute to the designer of this machine that with my situation I'm still able to workout daily with no adverse results. [...]

I've only lost 6 lbs! And that's Good News, because I have lost a size and a half! Being a 53-year-old female, the importance of keeping and adding muscle to my frame is critical for my long-term health and appearance. I have exercised since my late teens - weights, yoga, racquetball – and now golf. I have also had issues with sciatica and lower back problems. And as we know, getting older and weight gain seem to be ”attached at the hip.” The first thing I noticed when we got our machine back in February, my sciatica and back problems started to diminish.

[...]After a treadmill stress test at my doctor's office a couple of months ago, the nurse remarked how quickly my heart rate fell back to normal, and that I must have been exercising aerobically. I just nodded my head in agreement, as she shared how she runs for hours a week, knowing she'd never believe me.

Lastly, I want to say thank you, not only for producing the ROM, but also for your extreme customer service. Your team has always taken the time to answer all of my questions completely and honestly. All of the special requests that I made were met with a professional "can-do" attitude. In short, your company is the best that I have ever worked with... [...]

Bob Dillon – ROM Owner Since 2004 (Click on this to read full story)

We're finishing up the 9th month with our ROM and are pleased beyond words with the benefits it provides. We both use it every morning and have only missed when we were on vacation or sick. The results after nine months have been good. Connie went from 143 to 132 pounds and down a dress size. That's about her target weight since she is 5' 10" tall. Her body fat ratio is around 17%. More important, after four months on the ROM her blood pressure came down to the normal range and her doctor took her off the high blood pressure medication.


My results have been good in terms of getting the workout I need but my problem is I have always been quite thin. In the nine months since using the ROM, I have gone from 162 down to 156 pounds with a body fat ratio of 16%. I'm 6' 2" so "lean" is a generous description at this weight. But I am back to my 34 waistline. I would actually like to gain some weight but, as I said, have always been around the 160 to 165 level since my early twenties, and I will be 70 this year. Connie is a few years younger.

Three years ago at age 55 I had my first cardiac stress test at the recommendation of my general physician. The test went well, and I was told that there was less than a 1% chance that I would experience a heart attack in the next two years. This test was repeated just yesterday at age 58. The cardiac nurse and technician informed me that the results for this test were even better. My resting and exercising blood pressures were better, and my heart rate was lower during the test than three years earlier. In other words, I am in better cardiovascular shape.

[...] I’m regaining strength, flexibility and balance that I haven’t seen for years. I can squat down and stand back up without holding onto or pushing off of anything. For the first time in years I can put on my pants without holding on to anything. I haven’t been able to touch my fingers behind my back for at least 15 years. Now I can link my fingers (at the first knuckle) behind my back. When I got for a walk, I now breeze up a hill the used to practically kill me only a few weeks before. [...]

I’ve got to say that this ROM machine is great and life changing! I wish I’d bought one 10 years ago. I definitely wouldn’t have been in such poor shape nor would I have gained a couple hundred unwanted pounds. I would have been able to be physically active and would have enjoyed my family and my life much more. I can’t wait to see the results a year from now.

Clark Pitcairn - ROM Owner since 2003

Back in the summer of 2007, I took my 5 adult children with me to Africa to climb Kilimanjaro. It was to celebrate my turning 50. I did a few short hikes in preparation, but the main cardiovascular exercise I got was my use of the ROM for 4 minutes a day. Unlike my 5 kids (ages 19-27) I had few altitude sickness symptoms. My fitness level really helped me to have an incredible experience and I have to thank the ROM machine for that!

[...]We originally purchase this jewel of an exercise machine thirteen years ago. [...] We use the ROM every day when we are in residence and miss it when we are not.

I’m 83 years old and my husband is 91 years old. Being “oldies”, we need all the help we can find, to keep our bodies functioning well. Without the ROM, I doubt that we could have stayed active and relevant in today’s world of business and pleasure.

[...] This is just a note to say how much we like the ROM. -We use it every day as we can always find 4 minutes. [...] Both my husband and I noticed a difference in our bodies in the first month. At first the pedal exercise was very difficult, but after a few weeks it became second nature -We both get full range of motion on both the upper and lower body. I also might add that we are both 60 years old and we hate working out but know that we need to.

I lost about 7 pounds at the beginning and am now gaining a little weight but my pant size has gone down. I can wear pants that I had set aside long ago hoping that someday I could wear again. I went on a hike last week and had no trouble staying up with the other hikers or even staying ahead if I wanted. I don't think I could have done this hike with such ease without the ROM.

My husband and I also no longer have lower back problems since we started working on the ROM. (We bought a massage chair for back pain and haven't been in it since the ROM.) [...]

  I have owned the ROM for just under one year now and it has had several benefits that have made it one of the best purchases of my life.

[...]my weight of 175 lbs stayed the same but I dropped from a 34 waist down to a 32 waist. I had not been that waist since age 17 and I am now 39. I basically lost my slight spare tire and replaced that lost fat with additional muscle in my upper and lower body.

  After almost 8 weeks of working out on my ROM, I finally decided to do a full benchmark test. I was debating whether I really wanted to do this, but finally, my curiosity got the best of me, and I did it.
[...] 7) Ab crunches: I got 50 reps (Pre-ROM: 35 reps!!!) (By the way, the definition I'm getting in my abs is totally awesome... in thirty years of doing loads of abdominal work, I've never had the definition that I've achieved in just 7 1/2 weeks on this ROM machine!) I found this entire benchmark to be totally remarkable! Other than feeling more winded on the motorized treadmill portion, everything else cardio-wise was pretty much the same or easier than before! And the increase in muscle strength across the board was remarkable, especially when you figure in all the cardio I had done prior to performing the sets! Needless to say, I have NO intention of ever going back to my long-winded workout routines! And now that I've performed this benchmark, I am more convinced than ever that long workout routines are TOTALLY UNNECESSARY!!!!!!![...]

I have just taken delivery of my new ROM machine for its 30 day test drive. I can't begin to say how impressed I am. I am not a very athletic person so my appraisals in that arena will have to wait for some time. However, I have been acquainted with machinery; tractors, lawn mowers, jet skis, outboard motors, automobiles and I have even assisted in the installation of an Otis Elevator! To know that this machine was built in the USA gives me such a sense of pride. It verily gleams with quality.

Glenn Allen – ROM Owner Since 2006 (Click on this to read full story)

[...] The best part about the ROM for us is that we workout EVERY DAY! Because it is only 4 minutes, or sometimes 8 minutes if we do both upper and lower body on the same day, it is very easy to find the time and motivation. Even if we are tired at the end of a long work day, we can always fit 4 minutes in to get our workout done and then we feel great. My girlfriend has lost weight and tones up, and I have increased my muscle size quite a bit, while staying flexible instead of getting tight like weight lifting does. [...]

Greg Carter, M.D. - Owner since 2003
  "After a week of use, I realized that I was actually working out harder and more effectively, in a fraction of the time I had been spending on the other machines. My wife tried it and became convinced that the ROM was the real deal also. We sold the other machines and have never looked back! "
Gregg Pesciotta – ROM Owner Since 2007 (Click on this to read full story)

[...] I play basketball twice a week. and usually go for a run in addition. Prior to purchasing the ROM, I had a fairly intensive one hour overall weight training program which I did once a week. The ROM enabled me to eliminate this workout completely. I feel that I have benefited from this change, especially in my legs. I can now easily squat to the floor, whereas prior to the ROM I was very shaky in this area. Often times before the ROM I would miss my weight program and thus only do it once every two weeks. I can easily keep up on the ROM because of the time savings. [...]

I still play basketball and run and am hopeful that with the ROM I will be able to continue to do so for at least another ten years.

[...] I heard about the ROM 4 minute workout, and ordered one for myself which arrived in early September of 2006. At first glance, the machine was incredible - I've never seen another piece of workout equipment so sturdy, well engineered, or beautiful in my home. The workouts were equally impressive.

After the first month of doing 4 minute workouts every day, I noticed a huge difference in my overall shape. My arms, shoulders, chest, legs, calves, etc were all well toned - and I felt more flexible than I had in along time. After 3 months, I was on a cruise and a friend commented that I looked “jacked" - something I'm sure I've never heard before! [...]

I just wanted to give you an "update" of my progress on my new ROM Time Machine. [...] I have already gained approximately 2 lbs of "lean mass" in just five weeks, maintaining the same percentage of body fat (with a much increased appetite mind you!) and lost about 1/4" around my waist. I can already tell you without a doubt my strength, flexibility and balance (the three MAIN reasons I purchased the machine) have improved. In addition, my runs are faster and more pleasurable with less muscle soreness. Yet, I've been able to cut down significantly the time I spend exercising overall and maximize the intensity of all my workouts. [...]

Jeff Smith – ROM Owner Since 2006 (Click on this to read full story)

I love it! It's been a year since I bought a used ROM and it will definitely be a valued part of my life going forward. It took me a long time (too long) and a lot of research to convince myself to take the plunge and spend that much money on a piece of exercise equipment. I was afraid that like so many other "wonder machines" I had purchased it would soon fall into disuse and begin to gather dust. Boy, was I wrong. [...] The benefits have been real. I have lost a net 20 pounds (more than that of fat, but I have gained solid muscle), trimmed over two inches off my waist, toned my whole body, have more energy and feel better. I am amazed at the number of people who tell me how great I look and ask what I am doing. (Yes, no one believes four minutes a day.)

Jerry Walczak – ROM Owner Since 2004 (Click on this to read full story)

[...] I bought your machine and put it in the local YMCA where I work with and have worked with between 250-300 clients ranging in age from 16 to 85 years of age. I have used it with high school students, both male and female, retired people and the local police academy, as well as other serious exercise people. My comments are my professional reaction to my own workouts on the machine and the results I have witnessed with my clients. [...]


I am impressed by the adaptability of the machine to every client’s level of fitness. My young, strong football players can get totally 'beat up' by the machine and yet my older female clients can get an excellent challenging workout. I have an 85 year old male who has improved his strength and cardio as well as flexibility. I also work with a number of clients who keep track of all their exercise records and we are finding some amazing results in their aerobic fitness. I am collecting data on all my clients and though it has not been completely organized I am finding that every client is making some progress in Aerobic level, strength, flexibility, and weight loss. I have recommended your machine to many of my professional colleagues because I believe in it!

Jim Hunt – ROM Owner Since 2006 (Click on this to read full story)

Three cheers for a job well done! Your concept is out of the box for sure in price and the four minute workout.

I have used the Range of Motion equipment for just over a year and have appreciated and respected your concept. The equipment is sturdy and I trust it will function for me all my life and I will pass it on to my children.

I have always exercised by running, walking, swimming, lifting weights, tennis or biking. With the ROM it's the POWER of only four (4) minutes a day and the benefits of everyday doing it that make it the exceptional strength builder. The true POWER is doing it everyday and over time it will increase the health and strength of anyone. It increases the Oxygen to the body, Muscle tone and more flexibility to the entire body.

  [...] How do I know I've improved? I was amazed to see my VO2 uptake increase a few points since I've owned it, as measured by the stress test at my bi-annual physicals at Centinella. My scores are now up there with stats they have for firemen! And with age they expected my scores to go down, not up. I also have scoliosis and am glad to report that the strengthening of my back muscles has helped correct my curvature from 18 degrees deviation down to 15 during the same period. My specialist was surprised because he says the best he usually hopes for is to stop further degradation, not improvement. The most telling is when I mountain bike steep paths after months without riding, I keep pace with the guys who go out several times a week. They're shocked when they hear what I do, and frankly, they don't believe me. They insist I must be doing more. I'm pretty confident this is all attributable to the ROM because I stopped most everything else when I bought the machine, partly as a control to evaluate it, and partly, with two new kids, to gain back precious time. [...]
Julian Sacher - ROM Owner since 2007

I have to say that it is the most amazing machine; it does exactly what you say it does. Since beginning to use the ROM last May, I have been able to halve my medication for both High Blood Pressure and Diabetes. It was so surprising not only to me, but my Doctor as well.

Kent Maurer - QuickGym ROM machine owner since 2006

[...] After using the R.O.M. consistently for a few weeks I stopped all the time consuming stretching I was doing, I felt (and still feel) so loose and injury free.[...]My hips, that were getting so tight (despite my stretching) from being a college running back, Hollywood stuntman and aggressive skier, and traditional weight training, worried me that I might need hip replacement some day. But thanks to the 

R.O.M.  my hips are extremely healthy now. As most people figure out, tight hips lead to an assortment of problems including knee and back issues. All my issues are gone.[...]

Now ALL my clients, young and old, are seeing the same benefits that I do: Strength without injury, flexibility and a greater lung capacity. They are taking their skiing, hiking, snow-shoeing, and biking  to a level they have never had, with EVERYONE staying injury free. Your machine works great, people in this town want to be outside and enjoy everything Park City has to offer, so this time efficient workout is a blessing. One of my sayings is "get in, get out, go play" and that's what we do. I offer a workout that now enhances the quality of my clients lives, but doesn't detract from it...or mine.[...]

I remember the doctor who was administering the test as he was in complete amazement as I kept telling him to up the treadmill speed until it reached its maximum elevation and speed. When the test was finished and he looked at the results, he asked me what I was doing to be so fit. I told him I used the ROM daily for 4 minutes.[...]

I bought a ROM machine from you guys and shipped it to Alaska a few years ago; it was a great investment for me. I benefited several ways:

1) I had chronic tennis elbow in both arms. It was painful to use my arms for anything, but I dreaded the medical "cures”. I wondered if the ROM Machine would help or hurt my condition, but I was wonderfully surprised. It did not aggravate my tendonitis, and in two months the pain was completely gone (after living with the pain for five years).

2) I also had constant trouble with my lower back and made frequent visits to the chiropractor, that's also a thing of the past.

Michael Lewis Moore - ROM Owner since 2009
  [...]My testimony now is that I am a firm believer in the claims made about the ROM machine.  But please understand that I bought the machine believing I could re-sell it for a break-even price or at a small loss if I was not pleased with it.  The non-believers now look awfully silly to me. [...]

  [...] Since beginning my exercise program with the ROM I have lost almost 30 pounds. In addition to my weight loss, I have toned and gained muscles that I would have never thought possible with only 4 minutes of exercise a day. I recently turned 41 and feel better than I have in years. I still have a ways to go to get in optimal shape, but I know I will achieve my goals – since I now have the ROM as part of my daily routine.

[...] Perhaps what I appreciate most however, is that yours is a company with a product that meets and exceeds expectations. Something quite rare. You do not oversell it; it performs exactly as described; it is a work of art besides providing an outstanding workout; it is delivered with care in protective crating such that there was not a scratch or ding anywhere, in spite of its mass and size.

Phil McCarroll – ROM Owner Since 2006 (Click on this to read full story)

[...] I’ve been into fitness all my life having trained in the Japanese Martial Art of Karate for many years, run, cycled, played squash and done weights, so although I hoped the ROM would deliver what you promised I must admit that there was still some scepticism, as I waited for it to be delivered to Australia and I discussed the concept of the machine with my fellow fitness fanatics.

Well that scepticism has been blown away already in the 1st month. I have been recovering from a crash off my bicycle that caused a shattered collarbone, 3 broken ribs and a punctured lung so at my age, 58, you lose muscle tone and fitness very quickly and it is difficult to regain. The ROM has had a significant impact very quickly with muscle tone returning, fitness levels soaring and losing already 2 inches off my waist. My partner, Sheridan, is a keen runner and is in training for a 46 kilometre bush run but she has always struggled with the steep hills you encounter on the fire trails. Yesterday she did a 22 kilometre run in preparation and came home praising the ROM as for the first time she felt strong climbing the steep steps on the trail she runs. [...]

Ron Baretta – ROM Owner Since 2005 (Click on this to read full story)

My specific needs in exercise are unique. I was a national caliber gymnast in my youth and have benefited continued to benefit from the many, many hours I spent in the gym for many years. [...]

The resistance the human body creates on pommel horse, still rings, parallel bars or horizontal bar varies with the effort placed into the activity, much like the ROM. I love the concept of the harder you push the harder the exercise becomes. To me it seems to be much more like my gymnastics than weight training or the like. The ROM is something I will do. I cannot find an excuse not to do 4 minutes per day. And like I think I read on your web site, the only exercise that actually works is the one you will do. I know the ROM will be a key ingredient in my personal health and well being.

Ron Price - ROM owner since 1997
  After three weeks of using the ROM machine front and back every other day, I felt better and noticed an increase in flexibility. After nine months of using the ROM machine I had lost 30 pounds and felt fantastic. After eighteen months of using the ROM machine I was no longer taking any medications (at the direction of my doctor) and had lost 56 pounds.
S. H. Groves, MD – ROM Owner Since 2006 (Click on this to read full story)

I have now had my ROM machine for over 9 months. Overall, I'd say it's the greatest way I know of to get a workout in 4 minutes per day. I'm an orthopedic surgeon and I ran competitive track from age 5 to age 55 (I'm now 60). Though I no longer run due to an old knee injury, it's more important that ever to me to remain in decent shape. The ROM has accomplished that.[...] In addition, my shoulder, which was operated on many years ago and was giving me a tremendous amount of trouble, feels much better as a direct result of the ROM.[...]

[...] I am a regular golfer playing a minimum of three times a week and hitting balls a couple of days I don't play. While I was playing in a club scramble approximately three weeks after working out on the ROM the distance I was getting off the tee was incredible. I gained at least 20 yards and out drove my playing partners virtually every hole. One of my teammates had won the club championship two years in a row and another player who hits long drives was stunned at how far I was hitting the ball...effortlessly,

since I try to maintain a smooth tempo. My handicap is 8.2 so the extra distance was giving me easy wedge shots into the greens. [...]

  [...] After an 8 minute workout (upper & lower body) I left feeling as if I had just had a two hour workout. Tired yes, but I would really describe the feeling as more exhilarated and refreshed than tired. [...]

[...] It wasn’t until I reached my forty fourth birthday that the concept of aging had slapped me in the face. [...] Even though my body was dropping subtle hints all along the way, it wasn’t until a freak surfing accident that reality set in. That day, I tore my left rotator cuff, something I never even knew I had. The prognosis was this; a 50% mobility loss in the damaged arm/shoulder combined with painful sleep deprivation. The orthopedic suggested immediate surgery to alleviate the pain. Being the type of person that doesn’t take well to the idea of surgery, my question was simple; Could I attempt recovery solely through physical therapy and then, should that fail, have the surgery without risking the success of the surgical outcome because of the time that had lapsed. The doctor was brutally honest. He said I could postpone the surgery without any anatomical risks but physical therapy would be a painful ordeal that he wouldn’t recommend or put himself through.


Fast forward through two years of religious gym visits focusing on the rotator cuff injury. My arm/shoulder was restored to 90% mobility; the remaining 10% gets awarded to some dull pain, minor sleep position issues and joint creaking/clicking. [...] So back to the orthopedic I went and guess what he recommended, right, surgery. [...] Frankly, I was angry! Forty four was not the point in my life I imagined beginning minor surgeries or a regiment of pills. Furthermore, I received mixed reviews on arthroscopic surgery from some close friends who had the procedure and were not fully satisfied.


Enter the infamous ROM ad. [...] Well, long story short, I got the gold and my happy ending. Three years of ROMing later, my status = NSR (no surgery required). I get to workout with my thirteen year old son, kicking a heavy bag with both legs AND my arm/shoulder mobility is back 100%. Sure, I can give you all the infomercial rhetoric; all my friends can’t believe how good I look, I’m back to the weight I was in college, I look very different in the same clothes, but that’s all petty compared to being surgery free, prescription free and anatomically fully functional, approaching my fiftieth birthday (October 2007).

The ROM is a difficult issue to figure out through internet sleuthing. Their website could use a bit of polish and they have the medicine, health, and exercise industries instantly dismissing their implied claims. There’s a lot of noise a potential ROM customer has to wade through to get to the gestalt of the ROM issue. Here’s something to add to the pile. It is something I wrote as a review and as testimonial to being a ROM owner: [...]

The End Result

All of this has turned my health around in a positive way. I am bounding up flights of stairs I would have normally had plodded up before the ROM. I have done nothing but use the ROM 5 times a week at 4 minutes per time to improve my physical fitness over a year. It does work and it’s a shame a fraction of a percent of the population will ever know there is a more efficient way to exercise than treadmills, aerobics classes, weight machines, and free weights.

[Romfab’s commentary: Tom does an excellent job of analyzing the marketing difficulties we face.]
