MEET THE TEAM

Our Coaches Help The World
Move Right And Feel Right

Upright Health is dedicated to helping people eliminate the fear, anxiety, and physical limitations that come with chronic pain.

In our training studio in Redwood City, we work collaboratively with our clients to help them overcome injuries, chronic pain, and muscle imbalances with a blend of flexibility, mobility, and strength training.

On our popular YouTube channel and blog, we make musculoskeletal and orthopedic research accessible and understandable so people can see that surgery is not the only (or the best) option for aches and pains.

We strive to share all that we learn so that the whole world has the opportunity to move better and feel better.

Matt Hsu

Founder of Upright Health

His own battle with chronic pain from the age of 16 in his feet, knees, hips, back, shoulders, elbows, forearms, wrists, hands, and head gives him a uniquely thorough understanding of musculoskeletal pain, the ways in which it can undermine an entire life, and the mental and physical hurdles that keep people from getting out of it.

Matt was certified in the Rolf Method of Structural Integration by the Rolf Institute in Boulder, CO, is an Egoscue certified Posture Alignment Specialist Level II. He is also certified as a Corrective Exercise Specialist and Personal Trainer by the National Academy of Sports Medicine and as an Orthopedic Exercise Specialist through ACE. He studies books, videos, and blogs on rehabilitative and strength training constantly.

When not at the office, he's stretching in the living room, learning dance or gymnastics moves, or riding a bike with his son in tow.

Trevor Hash

Lead Trainer and Dance Junky

Trevor’s journey in personal training and movement improvement began with a shoulder injury. While playing collegiate football he sustained multiple shoulder dislocations that led to shoulder labral tears. He navigated the medical system for years with physical therapy, surgery, and more physical therapy but was never able to return to the field based on the medical approach to his problems.

After years of personal study and experimentation, Trevor has been able to return to full capacity in multiple activities including powerlifting, gymnastics, mixed martial arts, and basketball.

His goal with every client is to avoid cookie-cutter approaches and to implement the simplest, most appropriate strategies to aid them in achieving their personal goals.

Mitch Hash

Head of Online Mobility Coaching and Absurdly Tall Spiderman

Mitch’s interest in human movement began as a collegiate basketball player. During this time he ran into lower back issues — at times unable to walk or sit without debilitating pain. After receiving ineffective and frustrating advice, he knew he had to learn how to fix himself.

Now, without even a thought of back pain, he currently pursues rock climbing, hand balancing, and dance. He moves his body in ways he never thought possible.

From solving his own back pain, he’s developed an understanding of how the body works, and he applies that knowledge to help train others out of pain. He's passionate about addressing the factors that lead to dysfunction of the body and developing preventative measures to help people enjoy their lives without fear.

Vincent Do

Instagram Educator and Deadlift Connoisseur

Vincent began his journey in health and fitness as a competitive powerlifter. Despite achieving advanced levels of strength that set California state records in his weight class, he found himself continually plagued by recurring injuries and subsequent plateaus that he could not find effective, practical, and sustainable solutions to.

Using his analytical skills and obsessive drive, he's spent years working through his own physical hurdles and movement dysfunctions and helping countless clients with theirs. Over time, he has developed a deeply nuanced knowledge base to help others systemically take back control of their bodies. He takes pride and pleasure in being able to break down strength and movement principles so they're accessible to everyone.

Maks Reznik

Reformed Attorney at Upright Health New Jersey 

In his early-to-mid-twenties, Maks suffered from debilitating and chronic hip pain that severely impacted his quality of life. He was told he needed hip surgery to fix femoroacetabular impingement.

In 2014, after exhausting all the traditional methods for relief, he got on the path out of pain as an Upright Health client. He successfully avoided hip surgery.

This experience triggered a passion for movement. Maks decided to leave his career as an attorney to help people suffering like he had. He implements principles from functional and natural movement to teach clients how to understand their bodies and discover what is actually behind their pain and dysfunction.

Maks is a nature junkie. When he’s not evaluating clients’ movement patterns, he's exploring his own movement capabilities in the great outdoors.
