“As a health professional, I 'knew' that 4 minutes is not enough for a full body workout. I was wrong. ROM gets the result as promised including helping with cardio, respiratory and osteoporosis issues.”
“Just like everyone else, I was skeptical when I first heard about the ROM. However, this is the most effective workout machine I have ever reviewed... and regularly use.”
“As a physician specializing in optimizing wellness, the ROM remains my favorite piece of fitness equipment to assist my patients with achieving their highest level of health.”

Data suggests that a “low-frequency, high intensity approach to training” leads to “long term adherence” to training as compared with a “high-frequency, low-intensity approach.” “… Intense interval exercise is a time-efficient strategy to stimulate skeletal muscle adaptations comparable with traditional endurance training.”Download The Full Study

Less Time, Same Results
“High intensity intermittent training raises total muscle metabolism to higher levels than endurance training.” Compared to moderate-intensity endurance exercise, high- intensity intermittent exercise causes more calories and fat to be burned following the workout.Download The Full Study

No stranger to the fitness equipment business, Alf has always been interested in promoting good health and wellness. He emigrated to the U.S. from Germany in 1963 and devoted himself to developing his company, Nordic Sauna. In the mid 70’s he also owned a chain of 25 fitness equipment stores in Southern California. During that time he connected with the inventor of the ROM machine who asked him to distribute the machine.
Alf who holds a degree in structural engineering from the University of Stockholm, was offered the opportunity to manufacture the ROM, and while skeptical, decided to take it on. “I could see that with extensive changes, we could improve the machine,” he says, so he set about redesigning it. By the end of 1992, the new ROM was introduced.
“Years of research went into the development of the ROM,” says Alf. “The inventor studied body mechanics and looked for the most efficient way to work all muscle groups in the shortest amount of time. Getting past the doubt-factor has been our biggest challenge, but once people try it, they get it.”
Designed to revolutionize the way people exercise, the ROM – Range of Motion machine – has been attracting a growing number of fitness fanatics ever since it was introduced in the early 1990’s. Though it looks more like a modern sculpture than a state-of-the-art at-home fitness machine, the ROM provides a total body workout in just 4 minutes. The result of precision German engineering, it’s made from solid stainless steel, and hand-assembled in Southern California.
The key to the ROM’s effectiveness is a perfectly balanced 80-pound flywheel which regulates resistance based on a person’s strength and conditioning. The machine offers both push and pull resistance to the upper body, exercising the major muscle groups. A stair-stepping device works the legs.
Units have been sold world-wide including 340 to U.S. medical professionals, celebrities, athletes, and heads of state such as the King of Netherlands, King of Jordan and more.
Who benefits from the ROM?
The ROM is ideal for individuals who are ready to make an investment in their health and well-being but don’t want to spend hours at the gym.
The ROM is also making its way into the workplace as companies begin to recognize the value of exercise breaks during the workday. Better than a coffee break, the 4-minute workout refreshes and reinvigorates employees.
