About Us

Technology moves faster than fitness and it has left a wake of unintentional consequences. While the fitness industry brings technology into exercise through sensors and apps, Vertical Method brings laser-focused exercise into the tech industry. Our breakthrough results after 5 years of R&D on the largest tech community in the U.S. cracks the code to reversing tech-neck, gluteal amnesia, slouching and forward head from tech user lifestyles.

Vertical Method goes beyond posture correction by creating Vertical Posture, a high performance level of postural strength and joint mobility known mostly to professional dancers and competitive athletes, until now. Vertical Posture consists of deep inner corset muscles working to upload hips through core suspension: a standing coordinated effort between hip/ab/lat stabilizers to vertically support the shoulder girdle, head and neck against downward forces. Vertical Method rebuilds proprioception – the body’s natural ability to mobilize muscle groups as a united front against imbalance and joint injury. It’s a low-tech solution to a high-tech problem. San Francisco’s army of tech employees and urban athletes have made Vertical Method a boutique success. See our amazing client reviews on Classpass.

 “Vertical Method clients future-proof their posture and joint function. No posture gizmo can eliminate TPA, but fitness can. A body in proper postural alignment is a self-tuning machine.” Jennifer Davis, creator & founder.

What others say about us

A challenging workout that makes you feel like a rockstar…and you really do leave feeling like you’re an inch taller. This helps a lot with my bad posture (sloucher/typer) and it also makes me sweat (bonus).

What’s great about this method is that it works for men and women, because it has to do with posture – something both men and women need to look confident and attractive. 5 big stars!

I have scoliosis…I’m often in some sort of discomfort. Attended Vertical Method classes with Jennifer for several months I have noticed a huge difference in my posture and no longer have any discomfort. I always walk out of class standing straighter than when I walked in.

The classes are tough because they work muscles you forget about when you’re sitting all day. The targeted exercises make you feel great — I really felt like I grew an inch taller after that first class. Love knowing there’s a sustainable method for fixing my posture while getting a well-rounded workout!

This studio is just insanely smart…everything about the vertical method (literally) makes so much sense for alignment, posture, and most of all a great workout.

I highly recommend giving this innovative program a try. Vertical Method really is different than anything else out there, not to mention very sensible and safe.

As a fitness professional with a strong background in anatomy and alignment, my back muscles are stronger after taking a few VertiStrong classes! VM works the corset, hips and butt all at the same time while creating stability, mobility and strength. These classes will leave you feeling taller and stronger.

I love this workout! VM is really fun and challenging… there is nothing else like it out there. It is the uniqueness of VM that makes it so fun for me. Not the same old gym workout. I’m addicted!

This is the best workout. It’s made me so strong in my hips that I can walk, walk down stairs again, no longer need knee surgery and can now return to my life.

One of the most different and hardest workout classes I’ve ever had.

Amazingly MAGICAL! Went in with my nagging chronic shoulder pain and came out with no pain! This class is a MUST if you work in tech or do computer work all day.

As a Physical Therapist, I loved the focus on form and posture. Great workout with the cues and great injury preventative exercises!
