At Sproing Fitness, we believe that running is not just a form of conditioning – it is a fundamental movement skill and part of our evolutionary right and heritage as human beings. Running is an activity everyone should be able to enjoy, and Sproing was designed to allow everyone to run pain-free and enjoy the unparalleled mental and physical benefits that come from making running a part of your life. It makes our day to know that all over the world people who thought they couldn’t run or could not run anymore, can run again without pain and have fun doing it. Sproing makes the skill of running easy for everyone, and with its adjustable soft surface anyone can customize the level of challenge and cushioning perfectly regardless of their size or fitness level. Sproing is being enthusiastically used by all sorts of people from world class professional athletes to deconditioned senior citizens.
Get ready for a truly unique experience.
Pose Method® Approved
Pose Method is the scientific theory used to describe how all people run. Sproing is the first and only product endorsed by its founder, Dr. Nicholas Romanov
While developing Sproing, we spent a lot of time learning everything we could about the biomechanics of running. This led us to Dr. Nicholas Romanov, who is a three time Olympic Coach and one of the world’s leading authorities on the biomechanics of running. Dr. Romanov developed a systematic approach to teaching optimal movement patterns called the Pose Method®. The Pose Method breaks down the complex movement patterns of running to three essential elements that can be taught in a deliberate, perception/skill enhancing way. The result is a procedure for teaching efficient and injury-free running. The three elements Dr. Romanov identified: The Pose, The Fall and The Pull are performed by all runners. However, most runners also include a lot of unnecessary elements that cause injury, slow them down, and increase the difficulty of running.
Dr. Romanov and his team spent several months assessing and using Sproing. Dr. Romanov realized that Sproing is the ideal indoor running tool because its rear restraint system and soft surface automatically enhances the three key elements of running while eliminating the unnecessary elements that cause injury, decrease running speed and decrease running endurance. The end result is that Sproing and Pose have formed a partnership utilizing Sproing and the Pose Method to allow more and more people to run pain free, run faster and farther than they ever could before!
The science behind Sproing is real, documented and compelling. It is based on a comprehensive study by the physiology department of Benedictine University. The study proved what we already knew (and felt) that Sproing is half the impact of the softest treadmill and allows you to run the right way – falling forward and landing on your forefoot. Read this and other studies on running for yourself. The facts are compelling.
Do I have to be in great shape to do this?
Anyone can Sproing! The Sproing Trainer allows people of every fitness level to get a great cardio and strength workout together, in one place, without injury. Running is not a requirement! You can march, jog or run. It’s your workout! You do what you can, and you are always welcome to come out of positions you cannot sustain. Our instructors are trained to assist people of all abilities. We can offer you private sessions in off peak times if you want to study the method one-on-one at your own pace.
How many times a week should I Sproing?
We recommend three classes per week, although even one class a week will give you greater strength, energy, and muscle tone. And don’t forget, High Intensity Interval Training give you hours of calorie burn after the workout too!
What should I wear?
Its best to wear workout clothing that will let you move. Loose clothing could get in your way. The best shoes to wear are cross training or minimalist shoes that will allow you to move in all directions safely although any athletic shoe will work.
What should I bring?
We would like you to bring water or fill your bottle when you’re here. We have workout towels but bring your own if you would like. If you want to shower here, bring a shower towel. We don’t have lockers but there are coat hooks and cubbies within the workout room so you can see your belongings.
What should I eat?
Our workouts take energy, so it’s best to have some fuel – try to eat 60 minutes before.
There is only a 15 minute transition between classes so you want to make sure to be at Sproing Sport just prior to transition to check in, get your loaner heart rate monitor if you don’t have one and get settled.
If your plans change, we ask that you cancel your reservation four (4) hours in advance before the scheduled class.
Cancellations must be made online through your MindBody account. We cannot accept cancellations via e-mail or phone.
Cancellations made less than four (4) hours before class will be considered late cancels. All late cancels and no-shows will automatically be charged for that class.
If a class is full, please put yourself on the waitlist. If a spot opens, we will email or call you to notify. If your plans change after you waitlist, please make sure to remove yourself so you do not get charged for class if you get in.
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.”
Andrea Prichit , Ultramarathoner
