Our Story

Stand Up Fitness was created by Brody Welte who is a longtime waterman and adventure seeker. Brody has used his experience in the waters of California, Hawaii and Florida to live out his vision for Stand Up Fitness. Adventure has been a part of Brody his whole life and he has let his passion for adventure determine his career path. Brody is a certified Personal Trainer with the American Council on Exercise and has worked and trained with some of the top watermen in the world like Dave Kalama. Living in Hawaii and learning the ins and outs of Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) from some of its most recognizable players, has given Brody a plethora of knowledge on the sport and its Hawaiian roots. Once Brody stood atop a paddleboard and experienced the serenity, excitement, challenge, and all around good time that stand up paddling gives its participants, he knew that he wanted to bring this experience to others.

Stand Up Fitness like Brody has taken advantage of opportunities and jumped on the chance to relocate to San Diego from Florida. San Diego is the jungle gym of the US and is the outdoor lovers dream, with the vast Pacific Ocean, to the mountains of the Peninsular Range to the flat waters of Mission Bay. Stand Up Fitness uses all of natural resources to create programming that is fun and adventure filled. Whether we are teaching technique clinics on San Diego Bay or an outdoor Waterman's Training class in Torrey Pines you can always recognize us by our smiles, positive disposition and relentless desire to have fun.
