Every month you'll receive 3 brand new full body workouts - suitable for home or the gym - which work on strength gaps, so you can reach your pull-up in a safe way without burning out. All workouts come with video tutorials and printouts.
Most pull-up programs are either too vague with little help choosing progressions, or they've too much overwhelming information. The PUA reduces the clutter by keeping things simple, clear, and personal. Each step is carefully thought out to help you succeed
We believe in training smarter, not harder. It's about making sure you can and will do the workouts, consistently. We make it easy to follow this plan. It's laid out in an easy-to-follow design, and workouts geared toward effectiveness AND efficiency.
Unlike many other online programs and courses, we offer the chance to have your technique checked. While not compulsory, we highly recommend submitting videos for expert coaching. Often it's the smallest tweak or reassurance that makes the biggest difference.
You might worry that you don't have the time or energy to put into a goal like this right now. You might be tempted to put it off.
Let me reassure you: even if you only put in 2/3 of the work in this program, but you can do it consistently, you will still make more progress than if you continue to think it can only be "all or nothing".
A consistent little bit - even training less frequently (but more consistently) - will pay off in dividends.
If this goal is in YOUR heart, then if not now, when will you honour it?
I loved the simplicity and effectiveness of the workouts. I could do them in my studio apartment with limited equipment and avoid the busy gym. After hurting myself a few years ago, my confidence and strength were shot, but with the support and feedback in this course, I've gain back both. I was worried in a course setting the workouts wouldn't be personalized, but we've learned how to self-tailor the workouts, so empowering. I cannot say enough about how special this course is and how fun Marianne is to work with.
First off, this program works! I'm a 54 year old ICU Nurse and, while I've always been physically active, I'd mostly focused on being thin. These days I've shifted to getting stronger and pull-ups have always been a dream goal. The hardest part was sticking to a program long enough to see results, but because every workout can be done at home or the gym, it was easier to fit in around my shifts. At first, I was skeptical because it's such a well rounded program; how would that get me to a pull-up? Turns out that gaining overall strength helped me achieve a strict unassisted pull-up by phase 3, and am now working on my second. So empowering! I wholeheartedly recommend this course for people of all levels of fitness and ages.

Her passion for short, effective & fun home workouts saw her work listed in Shape's Top 10 Workout Channels on YouTube, and as an advocate of strength training for women, she Co-Founded both Girls Gone Strong and Get Glutes. After realizing the benefits of strength training to her own confidence and capabilities - due to constantly hearing she was good "for a girl" - she now coaches and inspired other women to achieve things they previous thought impossible...like pull-ups.
There are 3 main strength workouts per week. This allows for adequate recovery so you can push a little harder when you can.
The content is delivered via videos, written posts, and downloadable PDFs which you can keep.
After your payment goes through, you'll have access to the cadet dashboard, your welcome content, and Phase 1. This means you can get started right away.
If you buy the original 4 phases only, you have access to the course website for 6 months following registration. However, if you buy the PUA++ you have access to that version for the lifetime of the site. Note: if you buy the 4 phases, you will be offered the chance to continue with PUA+ after phase 4. But this only gives you another 6 months of access to the site. Really, the lifetime offer is a no-brainer, if you can swing it :)
While we can't guarantee that everyone will achieve their pull-up goals in 18 weeks, we can guarantee - if you put in the consistent effort - you will see marked improvements in your strength, particularly your upper body. That means you'll be far closer to your pull-up than now.
YES! In PUA 1.0 and 2.0 there were people enrolled who could do a few pull-ups. After phase 1 alone, they added REPS (yes, plural) to their baseline! And phase 1 has NO vertical pulling. Just working on shoulder, upper back, and core alignment and motor control allowed them to overcome a frustrating plateau.
Most people can complete their main strength workouts within an hour. This is by completing all sets written, however, even if you did 2/3 of what's written, you'll still see great progress.
The following 3 pieces of equipment are required: a pull-up bar (doorway bars are fine), a selection of 41inch loop bands (recommendations for these depend on your current strength), and something to do inverted rows on (parallel bars, suspension trainer). We also recommend having a step or bench, and some free weights like dumbbells, kettlebells or access to a barbell. Although not required, the more options you have the better. A lot of our workouts require minimal equipment and can easily be done from home.

There are hundreds of dedicated pull-up programs and dozens of pull-up progressions out there which leads to one giant problem: Overwhelm! In fact, many e-books are chalked full of too much written information, the exercise demos are often a hassle to go to (GRRR external links!), and you've nowhere to turn for help. So it'll sit on your desktop forEVER. You need a clear voice guiding you to stay on one path THROUGH the ups and downs of this journey. The Pull-Up Academy pulls together the important threads and organizes them into a clear picture with you in mind: full body training incorporated (videos on the same page), and the option of personalized feedback from an experience coach. That means if you're not sure how to apply something, you have somewhere to turn for help.
