WCW Wrestler takes on the ROM!

My father-in-law

My father-in-law

Here is part two of Sgt. Craig ‘The Pitbull’ Pittman taking on the ROM. (Did you miss the first video? It’s right here.) We had a blast filming these; he’s heard me rave about the ROM since I started using it earlier this year. (I think he was impressed that I’m getting any kind of regular workout; probably one of his greatest disappointments when his daughter & I started dating in the 1990s was how his precious little girl – scion of two Olympic athletes! – was seeing, not quite a 98 pound weakling, but someone who didn’t have much athletic attention span. The ROM is changing all that.)

The Sergent (that’s how I thought of him as a teenager; the first time I took his daughter out, with some of our mutual friends, he said to me & the other guy with me – “You take care of these girls, and bring them home on time – otherwise I’m going to have fun playing with your carcasses!”) has had an illustrious career, beginning with Olympic and Marine wrestling, continuing with Japanese Vale Tudo fighting, and culminating in WCW wrestling. These days? He lives the quiet, sedate life of a law enforcement specialist in Florida. You don’t want to mess with him.

With that said, the ROM gave him quite a run for his money – as you can see in the video! What I appreciate about the machine is how it matches the level of athleticism and energy you put into it. It’s gentle enough for my dad – who’s no physical slouch himself, but has back problems – and yet can wear out a world-class athlete.

And me.

    So do you kick his butt at wrestling too, or just ROMming?🙂

    What’s a ROM?

    Its been so fun to keep up with your journey on this gadget Mike. Good on you for keeping it up!

    Way to go! Keep up the good work!

    Mike,

    I do have some serious ROM-envy…. Do they give discounts to readers of your blog? Or easy payment plans?

    Theresa, thankfully there’s no butt-kicking going on between The Sarge and me, but if there ever was I’m quite certain it would only go in one direction – and not in my favor!🙂

    Heavens, a ROM is this amazing machine that gives you a complete workout in *four minutes* each day. See http://fastworkout.com for more information.

    Cathryn, put your hand on this computer screen right now & we’ll pray for a monetary BREAKTHROUGH, gloryhallelujah…

    Rachel, Khad – thanks so much!

    OMG, this machine is so incredible. I’ve heard of the ROM before but thought it was a gimmick… until I watched these videos of yours, that is. all I can say is, “wow.” I’m talking to my wife right now about what this type of investment might do for my own personal health… and my love life😉

  10. 10 Matt A October 26, 2009 at 12:59 pm

    Wow, $14,615 for this thing? That’s… incredible!

    Hats off to that veritable MAN MOUNTAIN Pittbull Pittman. He looks like he’s a down-right meat eating ass kicker.

  11. 11 Danielle Paxton October 26, 2009 at 1:03 pm

    Well, it doesn’t look like he’s doing that much, but he’s obviously whipped by this contraption! It’s always hard to believe a real workout could take place in less than an hour.

    I would love to have one of these in my basement — having three kids under 5 makes it near impossible to get a decent workout in these days. Having a machine that would enable me to do a real workout in just a few minutes would be a real help!

    Unfortunately, a work-out machine is not in our budget, otherwise I’d jump on!

    Great video – and you’ve got me thinking seriously about getting one of these things!

  13. 13 Bill October 26, 2009 at 2:55 pm

    Great to see Craig again! Howdy, Sarge!

    • 14 Craig Pitbull Pittman November 21, 2009 at 4:37 pm

      Well Hello there Bill!! thanks I miss you guys and I always ask about and think of all of you. Give Dee a big hug for me and I hope our paths cross soon would love to see you.

      Craig

    Forget the gym! Seeing is believing–this machine obviously works. And in 4 minutes!

    Thanks, Mike, for taking this challenge and for proving this doubter wrong!

    Best,
    Mick

    This is great! Keep it up!

  16. 17 Amanda Jarrett October 27, 2009 at 1:19 am

    Hi Mike! Great to see your progress!! I’ve told tons of people about your goals with the ROM, it truly is an amazing piece of machinery!!

  17. 18 Andrew October 27, 2009 at 2:38 am

    I wonder if you’d get just as good a workout from moving all your books from one side of the house to the other once a day…it might even give the ROM a run for its money!

  18. 19 Florin Paladie October 27, 2009 at 2:52 am

    Mike, you can do it … people do it and ROM can help!!!

  19. 20 tripp fuller October 28, 2009 at 7:36 am

    totally thinking of pulling the trigger on the ROM

    i doubt i could use it to torture my father in law though

  20. 21 MasterCollectum'All October 28, 2009 at 4:00 pm

    Hope you make all your dreams come true.

  21. 22 tinksinchile October 30, 2009 at 6:17 pm

    Wow! Love it Mike. Now where is the latest video of you!!!

  22. 23 Craig Pitbull Pittman November 21, 2009 at 4:28 pm

    Hello Son in Law so you finally found a way to tame this Pitbull congrats… Seriouly this is a fine piece of equipment and the best on the market if you what serious results. ( Space age tech is always fascinating and streamline…). Continue the good work I am really proud of you and kiss my daughter and grandaughter for me.

    Pitbull
