You may have noticed the new banner on the CFJ website for ROMWOD, it is there because we signed up to be an affiliate partner with ROMWOD. For those of you not familiar with ROMWOD, they publish a guided video program on their website that is designed to be used as a daily mobility/recovery tool. Their program is based on Yin Yoga, and utilizes long passive holds and structured breathing techniques to help increase your mobility and range of motion in all your major joints.
Coach Kirk first brought the ROMWOD program to our attention several months ago, he had been following and had noticed some significant improvements in his mobility and positioning during workouts. Since he started spreading the word several other coaches and members have given it a try, and everyone who did it consistently noticed positive results. So we made the decision to become an official ROMWOD affiliate.
ROMWOD is a different approach to mobility training than Kelly Starrett’s MobilityWOD. With ROMWOD you wont get any of the soft tissue manipulation (lacrosse ball, foam roller, voodoo floss) that is the backbone of MobilityWOD. However you will get a daily routine that you can do anywhere and it does not require any equipment. We recognize that the majority of our members would benefit from some additional daily mobility work; but most do not have bands, rollers, balls, boxes, or any of the other equipment you may need for soft tissue manipulation at home. ROMWOD can be done in the gym or at home, and they literally require zero pieces of equipment, just your body and some floor space. You can easily access the workouts from any device (phone, tablet, computer, etc.) with internet access.
Interested in giving it a try? You can sign up and create an account by clicking on the ROMWOD banner on the left hand side of the CFJ website. Select CFJ as your box when you create your account and you get a 14 day free trial, an upgrade from the standard 7 day trial. Not sure you need/want a daily routine? Maybe interested in 2-3 times a week, but need a class setting to help hold you accountable? Then let us know on Facebook or by commenting on this post on the website. As a ROMWOD Affiliate we have the rights to use their programs and workouts to run “ROMWOD” classes in the gym, and if there is enough interest/demand it is something we would look into.
