“When we walk away from a busy day with our clients, working with Navy SEALs, elite athletes, or private clients, we look at each other and we know their life changed today.”
- Joe Hippensteel, Founder of Ultimate Human Performance
“The Navy SEALs brought an expert in stretching and advanced physical and mental training methods to our base in 2010. I learned his methodology and I did it for weeks, then months, then years. I am still doing it today. Joe Hippensteel, thanks for showing me the proper way to stretch. It's truly changed my life.”

Joe Hippensteel, a Master in Physio-Kinesiology, focuses on Ultimate Human Performance (UHP) at the highest levels. He spent many years training for the Decathlon at a national level. Due to his size (or lack thereof), and lack of God given talent, his accomplishments were developed through extremely hard work and creative, extremely advanced methods of training over a 30 year period. The Decathlon (10 events in Track and Field contested over 2 days) is considered one of the most grueling of all sports and because of the diversity of skills needed, is extremely difficult to train for.Learn more

I have not walked for over four years because of a neurological disorder. After only two sessions with Joe, I am walking. Honestly! He is a miracle worker.
I’ve watched 7 Navy SEALs with chronic injuries perform maneuvers and positions that they couldn’t perform only an hour before. I can lift and squat more now because my body isn’t fighting itself. Incredible pain resolution. Watch 55-year-olds regain the flexibility of 18-year-olds.
B.P., Navy SEAL
I’m a former US Marine. As an 18-year-old jarhead, I never imagined the pain I’d suffer in my 40’s by not taking better care of my body. I experienced chronic pain cycles for eleven years, but then I met Joe. After just one session, I can see light at the end of the tunnel.

"While looking into alternatives to having shoulder surgery, I found Joe Hippensteel. He fixed my shoulder (torn labrum) in just a few weeks. I went from excruciating pain, to no pain by following his Ultimate Human Performance training methods."
Michael Platzer Nationally Ranked German Tennis Player
"At age 53, after seven knee surgeries and making the decision to get knee replacement surgery and accepting that I'll never play tennis again, Joe changed my life in 1 week. I play tennis now 4 days / week with no pain or surgery."
Brian Young Tennis Pro
"This program needs to train 50+ providers, be initiated in great lakes, incorporated into BUD/s and become "natural" to SEALs--as an expected baseline."
"This program has changed my life. I do not experience back pain and I can do things that I thought I would never do again such as run and surf. I feel better at age 60 than I did at age 40. I think that everyone in NSW should be exposed to Joe Hipp's program. Joe is an outstanding communicator who can explain every move he asks his students to make. The hands-on, one-on-one work that Joe and Mimi provide produces incredible results."
JM, Captain (Ret.)
"Preventive maintenance is ideal for any operator and by preventing injury would extend the operator's operational life and save the community a lot of resources and money. Strongly recommend this to anyone."
"This is the greatest therapy or modality I have found in 5 years of trying to correct my physical issues. I am grateful that UHP exists and is here to help us."
Joe Hippensteel has been AMAZING for my football career. After a devastating quad tendon tear at 34 years old, I didn’t know if I’d ever play again. Doing the UHP program made me feel 5 years younger and cleared up the tendonitis I battled for over a decade in less than a month.
Dwight F., NFL All-Star 13-year career
I read about Joe Hippensteel in David Goggins’ book and was lucky enough to have a private session with him. We covered 4 ROMs and they have made a massive difference! I practice them almost daily and the results are astonishing. In less than a month, my lower back pain is under control and my shoulder pain is almost completely gone.
Marcus K., Germany
Joe is a miracle worker. I went running this week for the first time in over 30 years. I love the range of motion that I now have, and I am free of pain. Working double shifts as a restaurant server used to cause depressing pain. Thanks to Joe, I have a new lease on life.
