We've Suffered Pain & Injury and Found A Way To Get Better.
Our Mission Is To Help You Do The Same.
Hi! I'm Shane Dowd, CEO, and founder of GotROM.com.
I help people fix injuries and get flexible. I am a Certified Massage Practitioner (CMP), Strength & Conditioning Coach, and Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES). But more importantly...
In 2011 I had lots of pain and zero flexibility.
- I have FAI (cam morphology)
- I also have labral damage and a subchondral cyst
- I used to have a lot of pain and movement problems...but no longer do.
- The video above is a snapshot of my journey out of FAI
It all started when, in 2010, after suffering a traumatic back injury, due to an underlying hip condition called femoroacetabular impingement, I started intensively studying various healing modalities (PNF stretching, Joint Mobility, Yoga, Massage, Chiropractic, Physical therapy, etc) to learn how to heal and optimize the functioning of the athletic body, and in 2013 I began teaching my system and methods to thousands of athletes who have benefited from this unique approach.
I am the creator / co-creator of over 12 popular online programs, including The FAI Fix, which are helping thousands of people around the world fix pain, correct posture and improve their flexibility & mobility. I also give away 98% of my material free on YouTube.
Going further back, my educational journey began at Central Michigan University in 2003, where I studied Dietetics and Kinesiology and graduated with Honors. A competitive internship with the Strength and Conditioning Department allowed me to work with collegiate athletes in sports ranging from football, soccer, track and field, wrestling and baseball. This “in-the-trenches” experience, on top of my foundation of nutrition, anatomy, biomechanics and human physiology further increased my enthusiasm for the human body, fitness, and rehabilitation.
My professional career has been further accelerated by training with Olympians, working with elite level coaches and athletes, as well as prominent trainers and physical therapists. These mentors have shaped my critical thinking and eye for the small but crucial details of training. I am a member of the NSCA and got certified as a USAW Level 1 Club Coach.
I am here to help you fix injuries and get flexible because I believe...
