ROM – A Perfect Complement to Pilates
Many of the principles of the ROM movement are similar to Pilates. You must make a complete eccentric and concentric motion with strength and balance for both to be effective. That’s what ROM – Range of Motion is all about. You must breathe properly. You must concentrate on form throughout the movements. And, like Pilates at DeWild Studio, you must make a genuine commitment to a long-term regimen that will transform your fitness level. I invite you to see and feel the difference adding the ROM to your workout will make.
