Behavior + Environment + Genes = Fitness

“Fitness is the ability to consistently thrive and interact within your environment and any of its demands, toward optimal gene-expression.”

Corey Jung, Founder and Performance Specialist of UpRight Movement


UpRight Movement is a developmental-based movement approach informed by functional anatomy, human biology and Newtonian physics. We believe these are the non-biased constructs and confines within which the human body operates. UpRight Movement is influenced by the injury rehabilitation and sports performance fields, bringing a seamlessly integrated approach that bridges the gap between rehabilitation and performance. The UpRight Movement program goals are to optimize human locomotion, resilience, and longevity (utilizing sound fundamental, transitional, and functional movement patterns balanced with recovery). All to help restore (fitness), as the ability to consistently thrive and function within the demands of your environment).
