Frequently Asked Questions
How does your program work?
We meet with you 1:1 to learn about your goals, injuries, history, etc. We call that a Success Session. From there, you sign up for sessions in our app as your schedule allows, ideally 2-3 times per week. The coach will take it from there. You show up and we’ll take care of the rest. We’ll guide you through your workout, take notes in your profile for your next visit, and support you every step of the way.
How often do the workouts change?
We design a routine for you for a month. Within the week (Monday vs Wednesday) will be a different workout to keep it varied, but you’ll repeat the workouts a few times in the month so that we can practice good repetitions and track progress. If it’s always different, we can’t track improvement. Clients find it’s a good mix of variety, yet certainty of what to expect over time.
How long are the workouts?
45-55 minutes. In and out within the hour so you can get on to the rest of your day or home for dinner.
Do I need to come every day?
Oh gosh, no. Our average client comes 2-4 days per week and sees great results.
What is Semi-Private Personal Training or what we call
That is how we deliver our workouts. Just like the name says, it’s personal training, but in a small group. So, you’ll get your own workout, your own routine, and have a coach with you at every workout…you’ll just be sharing the coach with about five other people who are also in your session.
Is this like CrossFit?
CrossFit did a nice job at popularizing strength training, kettlebells, and barbells. We certainly use those modalities. However, we don’t do a workout of the day where everyone does the same thing. We personalize each routine to the individual. Will you see similar equipment? Sure. But it’s not the equipment that makes Spurling special, it’s the coaching, accountability, and community.
What if I have an injury?
That’s our specialty. If you were perfectly fit and knew what to do you wouldn’t need to come here. We modify each person’s routine based on their goals and injuries. We also have a physical therapist onsite should we need another opinion about what to do.
Do I really have a coach with me at every single workout?
Yes, yes you do. Every single visit is with a coach that way we can tell you what to do, make sure you’re doing it right, and be there to support you.
Is it a membership or how does billing work?
We have a range of memberships, yes. You are billed monthly. Our memberships range based on how many sessions you want to use per month, and how long you commit to. Once we know your goals and schedule we can recommend a membership for you.
What are your class times?
We have over 25 sessions a week, with various Tailored Strength and class sessions. We start at 7am and go until 6:00pm during the week, with sessions all throughout the day. We will also have times on Saturday and Sunday evenings in the fall and add times if demand is there so be sure to inquire even if our schedule doesn't fit you at this time- there may be more than one person that wants your days and times too!
Is this a regular gym?
I mean, we have equipment and such, but other than that…no…not really. We don’t offer open access where you can come and go as you please. We require all our clients to schedule their workouts on our app or personal training clients schedule with their trainer, that way all of their workouts are with a coach so they can be fully supported at each and every visit.
Are you really for people 40+?
The majority of our clients are 40+, yes. We find that we attract clients who are intimidated by the typical gym. They need coaching, they need support, they need to be trained differently or have injuries and shouldnt be doing what everyone else is doing. That’s not to say we don’t have younger clients who also have those needs, but our niche is definitely fitness over 40.
Do you help with nutrition too?
Yes, we have various challenges, groups and a Holistic Health coach that coaches various things like hbits and macros.
Where are you located?
We are conveniently located in the heart of Midtown Bend- easy to get to and lots of parking. 1279 NE 2nd st. Bend, OR 97701 between Olney and Greenwood off of 3rd street.
