The ROM is one serious looking piece of exercise equipment and it better be given the claims its creators make about it. Apparently just a 4 minute workout out on the ROM is equal to spending about 45 minutes on a regular treadmill. And because it uses 55% of the body’s muscles during the workout you can actually burn about 465 calories in that short amount of time.
If you find that hard to believe you’re not alone. The ROM’s website seems devoted to convincing people that their cross-trainer is the real thing and that fitness ‘experts’ don’t really know what they’re talking about. I’m not willing to make a judgement call here since I’m no fitness expert myself but at $14,615 you’d probably want to be pretty sure it actually works as claimed before dropping that much coin.
