Open the file, save a copy to your drive, and record your max lifts, goals, and scores on timed workouts. The goal tracker will even tell you how close you are to your goal! For more explanation, contact us!

We offer training programs for people of all ages and skill levels, from ages 8 to 100. We believe that it's important to address any weaknesses or imbalances before trying to get stronger, in order to develop proper movement patterns and avoid injury.

The TBF class is designed as a strength and conditioning class that will have different phases throughout the year. The goal is to help people get stronger and leaner without causing overuse injuries. Each phase will last 4-6 weeks and will focus on a different part of the body's fitness. The workouts for each week will be posted on the blog.

We train our athletes as if they were in a team strength and conditioning program, which means we can train them year-round for their sport by putting their routines into phases based on when they compete. This way, they can make progress all year without risk of injury or burnout.

This circuit will get your heart rate up and also push your muscles to get stronger. The “A circuit” is a great squat day accessory, the B circuit would be good on a bench or clean day, and the last one is pretty universal. I put them all three together for one workout.

The project we are working on is ourselves. We are all evolving in our own fitness journey, or life in general, and as such there is always something to improve. We are our own project.

Fantastic experience: Pete and chelsi are amazing. Proper mechanics of lifting was a key component of me choosing a gym and UPP has proven that to be their foundation. The UPP principles and structured workouts have changed how I move anaerobically and aerobically. They know their stuff. Also competitive pricing for sure.

Fantastic experience: Very professional staff. My trainer there has been a big part of my weight loss/getting healthy journey which started last year. She witnessed me loosing 118 lbs thanks to her training techniques. I'm being pushed a little more now which is a good thing. Also, very clean facility, easy parking.

Fantastic experience: Great, helpful and knowledgeable staff- they know their stuff! Very different than your regular gym. It's the best place to train in Greenville hands down! Not an intimidating gym either. All levels are welcome, they have group classes and one-on-one training. They are accommodating to any type of training and fitness.

Fantastic experience: Great space with various equipment to get in a challenging workout. Owners/trainers Pete and Chelsi are friendly, motivating, and encouraging. I have done personal training with Chelsi and have taken Pete's Weightlifting 101 class. Pete and Chelsi are instructional and emphasize form and proper movement to help you improve and avoid injury. Tastey healthy meals are available on-site for purchase if you need a quick mea. Highly recommend.

Fantastic experience: Wonderful workout environment. UPP is a fantastic gym with trainers that take the time to get to know their clients. If you're tired of working out the same muscle groups, the same way, every day then UPP is what you've been looking for. And if that isn't enough stop by and say hi to Sadie (dog), she's always up to make new friends.

Fantastic experience: Great gym. All the trainers are nice and provide helpful feedback that helps you advance in your training.

Zach Brenton 6 years ago

Fantastic experience: This is the by far the best gym I have ever joined. It has all the amenities that I need for a great workout, plus an excellent management team and staff that is accessible, knowledgable and friendly. I joined in October of 2016. In the short time, I've gotten into the best shape of my life. The best part is that this gym has the personal interactions like CrossFit or OrangeTheory that keep you going, but it feels like you're a member of a community rather than a cult.

N Woodruff 6 years ago

Fantastic experience: This is an air-conditioned Fitness Studio on Main Street specializing in personal fitness, wellness, and sports performance. Pete and Chelsi are available to coach and lead you toward your fitness and performance goals! Fitness and yoga classes are available. They also offer personal training for individuals and teams.

Naomi Mclaughlin 6 years ago

Fantastic experience: I highly recommend Upstate Performance Project for anyone who is looking for a gym to join. The trainers (Pete and Chelsi) are super knowledgeable and take the time for individual attention. They have all the tools to help you reach any of your fitness goals. And no matter your fitness level, the trainers will help you through the whole process. I look forward to my training sessions with Chelsi.

Michael Bryan 6 years ago

Fantastic experience: Great Experience Downtown. The trainers are excellent and always willing to help with technique. The gym has everything needed for a full body workout without the clutter of a bunch of machines. The atmosphere is friendly and non judgmental with a range of skill levels working together and around each other. The workouts have been challenging and can be modified for weaknesses or injuries.
