About Roam149

Sid Raman, owner of Roam149, a mixed-reality cardio & fitness gym in Chelsea, NYC


Sid Raman, founder, and inventor of Roam149, a Concept Gym featuring a patented indoor running simulator that recreates the experience of running outdoors with accurate and responsive terrain-following technology.

As an avid trail runner, Sid had always pined for a way to experience, on a treadmill, the same joys of running outdoors. So with a group of talented robotics and mechanical engineers he set about to build the next generation running platform and software to complete this goal.

Building Roam

This venture began around July 2020, during the onset months of the pandemic. Persevering through with each successive iteration, critiqued and aided by professional runners, physical trainers, and even friends and family, the team moved closer to the openness, instant reactivity, and immersive that Sid wanted in the product.

Outfitted with a massive 4K screen, intuitive gesture-based controls, and an amazing patented mechanism that allows for silent inclining and declining of the running surface, the team felt they had a worthy and safe product to bring to the people. The last features of the product's specifications were written in part by the onset of the pandemic. To have each simulator in its own booth with separated ventilation, sound and visuals completed the goal for each user to truly feel one with the walking or running experience while breathing easier.

Our Mission: Revolutionize the Health & Fitness Experience

Cardio workouts will never be boring again!

Roam149 is a next-generation training platform featuring interactive workouts that combine the health benefits of running with the cognitive benefits of engaging and entertaining 3D environments.

Bringing A Revolutionary Idea To Market

The last step was on how to effectively bring this to market and that's why Roam149 in Chelsea, Manhattan was born. The name Roam was chosen to convey the absolute freedom of movement a user has when running or walking on the treadmill. Untethered and immersive, you are free to roam. We are building a library to enhance training, education, fitness, and physical-rehab processes with this technology. Our multi-player option allows the user to walk or run with someone in the next booth or one day in another country. Extended reality training is here!

The Future

Sid is supported by an amazing team of hardware and software engineers who helped bring this vision to life. Other key members of the roamr team include fitness industry veterans and renowned running coaches.
