We’ve all been there. You arrive in a new city—maybe for vacation, maybe for work—and instantly, your exercise routine goes out the window. Perhaps you’re dimly aware that there are studios and gyms nearby that would suit you, but you don’t know where, exactly, or what their class schedules look like, or what other kinds of amenities they have (and besides, you’re not a member). Better to stay in, watch a movie, and order room service. Right?

Why choose between the treadmill’s hard and unforgiving surface or the elliptical’s unnatural and monotonous movement? Designed in 2014 by two men who loved to run but hated the treadmill, Sproing is a piece of gym equipment that’s like nothing else on the market. The low-impact machine replaces the treadmill’s usual plywood deck with soft cushioning that feels like running on the beach (waves and sand not included, unfortunately).
10 Chicago Workouts that Make us want to workout by Fitt
Grade school recess meets fat-burning workout on Wells Street. Sproing Sport will put a spring in your step (literally) even if you just dragged yourself out of bed after hitting snooze five times. These 45-minute classes focus on 30 minutes of HIIT with technology that creates less than half the impact of a normal treadmill. Good for the knees, good for the kid-at-heart. Bounce your way to a lean, mean new bod. Seriously, though, don’t knock it ’til you try it. And feel free to drag along some friends if you’d rather bounce with the crew.
Sproing’s exclusive soft surfaces reduce impact signficantly when compared to the softest treadmill
on the market.

Sproing vs Treadmill: Egg Drop Test
Data is a result of a study conducted by Benedictine University’s Department of Physiology.
Just completed my first complimentary session at Sproing Fitness and I feel AMAZING! Today was the 1st of any physical activity done over the past 13 years where I have NO pain in my knee and lower back!
“It was a great workout. Soft on the knees. I feel I got a really hard workout without any hard impact. It was really easy on the knees. You have to try it. It is awesome.”
“The workout was ridiculous. That is probably about the best workout I have had… ever. Its a whole lot of digging deep.”
Antonio Lynch, College Basketball Player
“It’s a killer. The workout is difficult due to the softness of the mat… It is very intense. More so than the treadmill running.”
“It was excellent. One of the best workouts I have had in that short period of time… This is a total body workout. Legs, arms, explosion, cardio. You can get an excellent total body workout in a short period of time.”
Rock Blackwell , Pro Boxer
“As athletes, we train tirelessly over and over again and one thing you want to stay clear of is injuries. I can definitely see using this to take me to a different level.”
Antwoine Sanders , Former NFL Player
“I love it. It is taking my routine workout to a higher level. It is a cardio challenge, as well as a strength challenge. I am a runner, I had some issues with my hips. The Sproing is completely comfortable. I feel no injuries during and no discomfort afterwards.”
“It is one of the most exciting things I have seen. You can run forward and backwards, do squats and lunges. You can incorporate it all into one routine. I couldn’t do that on a treadmill.”
