We help people build strength, mobility, and independence gradually and safely.
We currently have no openings for new clients. To train with us in the future, please add yourself to the wait list at the bottom of the page.
Upright Health's unique approach to training helps you get stronger safely.
We know how frustrating it is to try to solve your body's problems because we've been there.
That's why we coach differently. We work to systematically identify and address your individual needs. We select corrective exercises that help you engage the right muscles at the right time.
And then we help you build strength and coordination so that you can move with confidence.
Strategically applied massage techniques help your muscles relax and function better.
Restoring flexibility helps prepare your body for better performance.
Waking up dormant muscles and strengthening them in balance with other muscles makes you more resilient.
We won't give you the same old routines that you've gotten a hundred times. You won't be told that "it's just your core," that "you're just getting old," or that "you have a joint disease."
We help you solve YOUR movement problems.
Sessions are a team effort to help you establish the strength and coordination to move in ways that are more efficient and healthy.
If you're a local or skype client, sessions generally start at once or twice per week. If you're a Parachute Programmer, you'll have a much more intensive schedule.
At each session, your workouts and home exercise assignments will be adjusted to help you understand and get around movement roadblocks.
Skype sessions, and a four-day in-person intensive program make it possible for us to help you even if you don't live nearby.
Due to California coronavirus restrictions, only online training and coaching are currently available. In-person sessions are not available until further notice.
If you're dedicated to the process and willing to put in the work, we'll help you move forward with regular sessions to help you dive into the nitty gritty of your body.
Training occurs in 3 month blocks.
Flying in from out of town? We offer an intensive eight hour coaching program so you can make the most of your time here.
6 total hours in the studio and two follow up sessions via Skype give you a solid foundation to start your journey.
CURRENTLY ON HOLD
Generally no. We aren't doctors or physical therapists. We don't approach challenges the way medical professionals do. We think this is a huge advantage, but it also means medical insurance doesn't cover our services.
No. Clients are expected to be committed to following through, making changes to their lives, and developing a relationship with the coach. A single session sets unrealistic expectations that are not conducive to open communication and collaboration.
There is nothing that can fully replace the speed and efficiency of in-person interaction.
That said, online coaching can still be very effective if you're committed to following through on your workouts at home.
The real comparison to make is between NO training, INCOMPETENT training, and ONLINE training.
And in that comparison, ONLINE training wins hands-down.
