The ROAM Method

Welcome to the ROAM Method: – A general fitness curriculum to improve the way you move.

Awaken the joy of movement with this curriculum that gradually expands your “Range Of Active Movement” by leading you through a spectrum of physical abilities, modalities and formats to encourage you to enjoy regular and varied movement. We split the ROAM Method into three levels; Health, Fitness and Performance

1 HEALTH

We start with low intensity bodyweight flexibility, stability, posture and coordination programmes that borrow from functional and corrective exercise, qi gong, Feldenkrais, the best of yoga, a twist of gymnastics and infant developmental patterns.

You will feel:

More fluidity and confidence in your day to day movements

Increased flexibility, stability (balance)

Increased integrated muscle tone (total body)

Reduce niggly pains that keep you from certain activities

Have a platform of physical ability to start a new sport or activity, relaunch an activity you may have given, or, enhance a current one.

2. Fitness – We combine functional fitness and traditional strength and conditioning equipment and philosophies here. We focus on making you strong in the deadlift, squat, bench press as well as the lunge, twist, push and pull. Cardiovascular intensity and demand increases here.
