Welcome to another installment of the Oregon Brewery Running Series PodcastInspiring Oregonians to Get Active, Have Fun, and Give Back. We host family-friendly, 5K fun runs that start and end at some of Oregon’s best breweries.


Today on the podcast, I’m talking with Scott Brown from Tandem Personal Training, about the convenient and affordable way they can connect you with local personal trainer to accomplish your health and fitness goals. Scott is a product manager with Tandem and has 15 years coaching athletes, non-athletes, and everyone in between. Since 2014, he has been focused on helping anyone on a health or fitness journey through the development of digital fitness, performance, and health training tools. Ever since he stepped away from being a full-time trainer, Scott has been working with companies that are passionate about making training approachable and achievable for everyone, which makes Tandem an excellent fit for him.

In this episode, Scott is going to tell us how they back up their claim of being convenient and affordable. He’ll also share what their training programs are actually like. You’ll also get to hear a sample of what it’s like the first time you meet with one of their trainers. I’m going to start working with Tandem, so I used myself as a guinea pig to simulate how a Tandem coach would approach building a training plan for you.

This episode is a little longer than others we’ve done, so listen to the whole thing –  we have some promo codes not only for our runs but also to try Tandem at a discount!

About Tandem

Our team came together because we knew how frustrating and overwhelming the world of fitness and training can be, and fortunately, we’ve experienced how different that journey is with a personal trainer there as your guide.

We believe personal training should be convenient and affordable for everyone. That’s why we created a new way for you to connect with the top trainers in the Portland area. Tandem combines in-person sessions at your trainer’s gym with a custom digital workout plan designed to fit your lifestyle.

Tandem offers four plans; The silver, gold, platinum, and digital-only plan. Each one gives you a personalized in-app training plan built by your trainer which includes custom workouts and detailed video guidance. The difference is the number of times you meet with them each month. They start at $49 and go up to $199, but if you use the promo code BREWRUN50, you’ll get 50% off your first month.

It’s amanigly customized to meet your unique health and fitness goals.
