Accommodations

Airbnb.com
Many students have had great results finding nice and economical Airbnb locations close to RTS, sometimes even walking distance. If you’ve used Airbnb before then you are well aware that availability fluctuates. Furthermore, past students have on occasion banned together and found entire houses or condos to accommodate two-four people.

The closest are often across May Avenue about a 6 minute walk. If you have used airbnb before you are aware that they don't list the addresses of their places. To assist in your search choose the Quail Springs Mall area of Oklahoma City. All of the hotels listed below are near there. The mall is two miles north of the facility, so scroll down May avenue past Memorial rd and past 122nd st. To narrow your search, look in the area south of NW 122nd street, north of Hefner road, and on May Ave. The facility is on May and the closest cross streets are Stonybrook road and NW112th st. There are usually several in the many condominiums just north of 112th st.

Travel Recommendations

Reconsider last flights out. The occurrence of delays leading to excessively late night arrivals or even until the next day are all too common. The course is too expensive to miss any portion and full attendance is required if you ever hope to sit for the RTSm exam!

Unless you have a direct flight on another carrier, consider domestic flights on Southwest Airlines. You can only see southwest flights on southwest.com. You will NOT find their flights on Expedia, Orbit, Trivago, etc.

Reasons:

  1. Unlike any other airline you can cancel up till time of departure and while your ticket price may not include a refund, you can “bank your travel funds” for future use. All other airlines have considerably penalties/fees for changes.
  2. Up to 2 checked bags free
  3. You can sit anywhere (purchasing “early bird check in” for $15 is well worth it to be among the first 60 to board)
  4. More on time arrivals and commonly give out $100 vouchers when a flight is delayed for a considerable period of time

NOTE:

  1. Again, consider avoiding the urge to take the last flight into OKC. If delayed it sucks to get in at 4:00am the morning of an expensive class. If cancelled the next morning’s flights are often full so you often miss the bulk of the first day.
  2. Furthermore, full attendance is required if you ever hope to sit for the RTS Level 3 exam!
  3. Consider avoiding connections through Chicago O’hare, especially after 12:00pm.
Transportation

From Airport:

  • Uber!
  • Airport shuttles are NOT provided by hotels in north OKC (i.e. those listed above).
  • Taxis and Airport Express shuttles are usually outside airport baggage claim on the lower level.
Parking

If you drive to class please only park at 11201 N. May Ave.
Do NOT park next door at the bank.
Do NOT park behind 11201 or in front of 11205 or 11209 as these spaces should be respectfully reserved for their patients and clients.

Photography and Video Recording

Video recording of class is prohibited.
Audio recording is currently allowed.
Photographing clients, patients, or equipment in Focus On Fitness is strictly prohibited.

Workouts

As your phone map will tell you, there are several nearby gyms for before and after class.
You are allowed to workout at Focus during lunch breaks (Tom’s facility used for the hands-on portions of class).

Two considerations:

  1. Focus is a personal training and rehab facility. Please be aware of the practitioners working with clients/patients relative to
    • loud, distracting, or inappropriate conversations
    • camping out on any specific machine for an extended period
  2. The principles taught in the RTS classes should be employed to the extent on your ability. Training with no regard for these principles, or without yet understanding them is unacceptable.
Purchasing Products During Class

If you wish to purchase products during a course please email Jennifer at rts123contact@gmail.com do so before Saturday. We understand that you may not be aware of a specific product until it is used in class and that may be later in the weekend. We are just trying to prevent delays in class due to last minute purchases that could have been completed earlier in the course.  

Times

9:00-4:00 (door opens at 8:45am)

Please inform us by email of travel delays impacting your attendance to class. (support@rts123.com)
