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.

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 RTS Level 3 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.

To/from workshop: 

  • For those staying at the SpringHill Suites, check for a list of RTS students for shuttle departure times to RTS.
  • The hotel is only 5 minutes away so 8:40 AM is adequate.
Parking

If you drive to class please do not park in any space directly in front of the building. These spaces should be respectfully reserved for patients and clients. If your car occupies this a space for 8 hours, 8 or more patients or clients will be unable to use that space, people that may have difficulty walking, etc.

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 [email protected] 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.
