Our Vision

Empowering people on the journey to feeling, moving, and performing better-living freely with few limits.

Our Principles

To optimize health and performance for every individual, it is essential four key areas are exercised in a balanced manner: Mindset, Recovery, Nutrition/Hydration, and Movement. These elements operate interdependently and ultimately have a very powerful influence that may help with optimal gene expression. Mindset, Recovery, Nutrition/Hydration, and Movement alone aren’t enough. But together, and incorporated into daily habits, balancing these four fundamentals serve as a Force Multiplier to help you succeed now—and for life to Feel, Move, and Perform Better.

It is both our honor and our responsibility to serve people. Our primary goal is to enhance awareness of posture, movement patterns, and problem-solving strategies for diverse interactions with our environment. By focusing on locomotion, resilience, and longevity, we aim to refine how the human body senses, perceives, and interprets sensory input, including the sensory output of pain. We consider the unique ways individuals move and rest within various contexts, working to recalibrate and fine-tune the nervous system, movement, and recovery to optimize human performance tailored to each person’s specific scale and context.

UpRight Movement stands at the cutting edge of human movement and performance training. We are pioneers in redefining how the human body should be viewed and trained, positioning ourselves as leaders in the realm of movement skill development. Our innovative approach takes into account not just the physiological aspects of motion, but also the evolutionary roots of our locomotive (Human Bipedalism and Climbing) strategies.

Employing this multi-dimensional approach, we’re able to enhance the overall efficiency of movement. While we don’t claim to diagnose or treat specific injuries, we do empower individuals to self-regulate their nervous systems and become attuned to their sensory experiences. We teach how the human body moves—and sometimes regressesin its movements, offering personalized restoration of human movement that aligns with an individual’s particular environment and demands.
