About Us

from humble beginnings

UP Coaching started out with a handful of athletes coming together for a weekly run and quickly grew as word spread.

Brendan Davies was coaching online athletes and the local sessions where never meant to grow beyond a handful of runners.

The need for more coaches and locations followed the birth of extra UP Coaching locations, in The Hills, Bathurst, Canberra, Penrith, Melbourne and Hawkesbury.

Now UP Coaching has sessions in 3 different states and 4 locations within NSW with over 13 Coaches in every state of the country.

Brendan’s vision and values reign through each location, with core values, experience and unleashing performance to ultimate potential is shown as athletes who train and race under the UP coaching banner.

When asked what it means to be an UPper from any athlete, most will tell you it is to do with being welcomed and included no matter what their ability.

UP Coaching caters to all types of athletes from weekend warriors, couch to 5k, seasoned veterans, kids and the elite.

Most sessions will offer a different approach based on an ability level and everyone encourages and supports one another.

Our casual shirt Logo designed by Kellie Gibson and collaborated with all UP coaching athletes perfectly shows the values and ideals of all people within the group.

Couples that run together stay together, and when families all participate together in weekly sessions their is nothing better.
