 “I did it! Ten overhand grip strict pull-ups. It’s taken me 8 months of consistent hard work, sweat, and some tears to get from zero to ten. Some of you have followed this little journey of mine on my Instagram stories. I began posting as a way to keep track of my progress and keep myself accountable, but in the process, gained a ton of encouragement from those who took time to cheer me on with kind words and messages. Thank you so much!

Pull-Ups are an incredible total body exercise involving so much more than your back. There were many different exercises I needed to do to improve my core and lumbo-pelvic stability as well as grip strength and scapular mobility.

A few months into my training, I was fortunate to find Meghan Callaway and her Ultimate Pull-up Program. I don’t mean to sound like an ad, but, I honestly don’t think I could have achieved my 10 without this program and her specific guidance. She is the real deal and I’m so grateful.

“It’s inspiring to watch someone very knowledgeable and fit demonstrate what they want you do to.

I can’t say enough good things about the way Meghan coaches.”

I’d been trying desperately to get to my goal of 10 pull-ups.

I started Meghan’s pull-up program right after is launched. I was refreshed with the fact that is was so well written and comprehensive.

The program is well paced and I even though I was more advanced started with phase one. 

By the end of phase 4 I was able to do my 10 pull-ups!

Michael Hayes

“I do pull-ups because at the age of 61 it keeps me young.”

I came across Meghan Callaway’s Ultimate Pull-Up Program and the video of Meghan doing pull-ups and she blew me away! She made it look so easy.

I ordered her pull-up program and it changed the way that I train. After only 3 weeks I was doing a pull-up and getting my chin over the bar.

"Whether you are doing lots of pull-ups or just wanting to get that first pull-up...This is the amazing program that you need."

"Sure there are lots of programs out there. But I can tell you (being a trainer for so many years) there is not one like this.

There is not a single question I thought of that she hadn't answered already. It is all in the program. The tutorials are amazing the written instructions are amazing. Everything is there that you need and you are going to succeed!"

What Some Of My Clients Have Said About The Ultimate Pull-Up Program

”As a fitness coach myself, I know the value of having an extremely qualified, knowledgeable, and all-around badass coach creating training programs, checking form, and imparting knowledge and experience. Meghan is the only coach I’d choose for myself; I train with her both in-person and online. She’s the epitome of professional, knowledgeable, evidence-based, and superhumanly strong – qualities that make her stand out among her peers in the fitness industry. Meghan has fine-tuned my form in many exercises, but especially pull-ups and chin-ups (my favourites!) She’s your go-to expert on these exercises in particular. If you want to learn how to do your very first rep, or if you’re already a pro and want to learn extremely challenging variations, Meghan is your gal.”

-Karina Inkster

Meghan is an outstanding online coach. Her programming is outstanding. She works with me each month to come up with a tailored program to meet my specific goals and also takes my weaknesses into consideration so that I’m ever improving. Since one of my goals is to be able to do more pull-ups, she designs programs that help me achieve this–I’ve not only improved my pull-up form, but also continue to increase my max every month!  I love working with Meghan and can’t recommend her more highly!

-Felicia Smith

”Having been an elite Olympic hopeful for Canada in sailing, working out has been a big part of my life for years. I am also a firefighter and being strong is vital for my job. Despite the fact that I was working out all the time, I always struggled with my pull-ups. I made the mistake of treating pull-ups as an arm exercise. As a result, I was never able to build up my reps, and I suffered from chronically sore forearms. Since I started working with Meghan, she has really reinforced the concept that pull-ups are a full body exercise, and that the muscles in my back, not my arms, should be performing the majority of the work. We really worked at improving my pull-up technique and also added in some other exercises that have had a huge carryover to the pull-up. Now I’m able to perform a lot of reps, on any given day, and my forearms feel so much better.”

-Rob Cullen

”I am in my late 50’s, and have been working with Meghan for several years. I have always had the goal of being able to do proper pull-ups. When I first started working with Meghan, I was barely able to perform any reps, and the reps I did were not done with very good form. Meghan taught me that the pull-up is a full body exercise, and that the entire body needs to be working together. She also made me appreciate the importance of using proper form, mastering the basics, and following the right progressions. Now I am able to perform multiple reps of pull-ups (up to 10 chin-ups and 6 pull-ups), and I can even perform a few advanced variations. This is incredibly empowering, and my body feels amazing. I’ve even had other women at the gym compliment me on my pull-ups, and say that they wish they were able to do them as well.”

-Evelyn Jorgensen

”I have been working with Meghan for just over a year. While I am in my 70s, I have always had the goal of being able to perform an unassisted pull-up. While I am not quite there yet, I have made a significant amount of progress. I have also been performing many other pull-up regressions, and other full body exercises that will help me achieve my ultimate goal.”

-Susan Sinclair

**As I talked about above, band assisted pull-ups can be extremely useful if they are executed to perfection, but they are only a small piece of the puzzle to being able to perform pull-ups.

”I trained with Meghan around 2 years ago. At this time I was looking to improve my own training, specifically my pull-ups. Within one month of training I was able to go from barely getting 1 pull-up to being able to perform 3-4 pull-ups. I still follow the principals in Meghan’s Ultimate Pull-Up Program and just this month I had a PR of 8 body weight pull-ups and did my first weighted pull-up with a 10kg kettlebell. Not only that but the quality and form of my pull-ups has significantly improved. Two years ago I would never have imagined I’d be able to do a weighted pull-up and I owe it to Meghan for providing me with not only the training but also the education that was missing from my own program.”

What Some Of The Top Coaches In The Worldwide Fitness Industry Have Said

The pull-up is one of the more challenging and complex movements in the gym. I rarely see it done correctly and I never see it prepared for properly. Poor form and faulty planning leads to a lack of results with this movement. I’ve only come across one resource that has laid out a program and plan that will help you to develop results in your efforts to build a better pull-up. Don’t waste your time looking at other programs, the Ultimate Pull-Up Program is it, game over. You will learn how to build your body for the pull-up movement in a comprehensive way that takes into account far more than just your upper body. You won’t be disappointed and you will be doing the pull-ups you’ve wanted to do thanks to Meghan and this program.

“Meghan Callaway is the real deal. There are very few people I’m jealous of. It’s true.  For the most part, I consider myself in an individual league of excellence, and few people can touch or surpass me. But truth be told? I met my match and then some in Meghan Callaway. She is strong, moral, and kind all at the same time. She is truly what it means to be a renaissance woman. If I was in some sort of virtual medieval time, and I had to select who I had to fight on my behalf, I’d elect Meghan Callaway. She’s that level of nobility and strength tied in one package.

 If you’re looking for someone to teach and guide you through your journey, you’re lucky to land on this page and in the teachings of Callaway.”

“I’ve followed Meghan’s work for years and am always impressed at how thorough and knowledgeable she is when it comes to fitness. She digs deep into subject matter, offers tremendous insight in all areas regarding coaching– from technique and progressions to emotional support and compassion – and is likely one of the most innovative coaches when it comes to leveling up any exercise. In the past year I’ve gotten to know Meghan on a more personal level and she’s just as genuine of a friend as she is a coach. She often shares with me videos of her clients’ progress and I am in awe of what is accomplished. She empowers people to defy odds and take on challenges they likely never thought possible. Yet she does so with great care and support. Anyone is lucky to have Meghan as a coach and I know her passion for fitness resonates well in her pull-up program. It’s like having her at your side every step of the way.”

Meghan’s will transform you into a Badass! (just like her)

I invested in Meghan’s Ultimate Pull-Up program after following and admiring her work for years. It didn’t take very long to realize that this was one of the best investments I could have made as a personal trainer. It has not only exceeded my expectations, but completely obliterated them. I was taken to school and class was in session!

It’s evident that Meghan is incredibly passionate about her craft. She put together the most comprehensive and complete pull-up program available on the market, without question. I’m literally envious or her understanding and knowledge of the science behind creating this program. Her dedication to her craft is matched only by how amazing of a person she is. And let me just say, she’s pretty damn awesome!

If you’re looking to improve your pull-ups, or even just to help your own clients improve theirs, you’d be doing yourself a huge disservice if you didn’t utilize this amazing resource. Get her Ultimate Pull-Up Program and don’t look back!

-TJ Mims, CSCS

“When I think of secret government agents who kick ass and take names, I think of Jason Bourne. When I think of chin-up/pull-up badassery, I think of Meghan Callaway. There aren’t many coaches out there who do more walking of the walk than she.
Meghan’s a coach I respect a ton and the quality of her content (and character) is unparalleled by most. She’s also someone I would seek out to lead me through the zombie apocalypse: what she can do in the weight room is astounding. She’s the real deal.”

-Tony Gentilcore, CSCS

“Meghan Callaway is one of the few professional coaches in the industry that not only innovates the way her clients train, but can turn around and create powerful content and programming based on real life success. When it comes to busting the notorious female pull up struggle, Meghan is my go-to source.”

“Meghan is passionate, credible, knowledgeable, diligent, and authentic. She makes her mark and leaves everything she touches better than it was before she started, whether it’s through her writing, videos, or her own programs/coaching. Anybody who works or learns from Meghan is lucky. She’s fantastic!”

“Thorough doesn’t even begin to describe this product. Whereas many other pull-up resources concentrate solely on training the prime movers in the pull-up (e.g. the lats and biceps), Meghan takes a far more holistic approach to the movement. By addressing all of the many factors that go into pull-up performance – from upper body strength and mobility all the way down to lower body strength and everything in between – Meghan’s program provides a comprehensive recipe for pull-up domination.

Frankly, I’m blown away by the amount of information contained in this book. It’s essentially years and years of personal training experience wrapped up into a tidy 166 pages. In addition to meticulous text explanations of how to perform every exercise and the rationale for it, there’s an accompanying YouTube link to a high-quality video with Meghan demonstrating flawless technique.

With four whole training phases, The Ultimate Pull-Up Program gives you access to an unprecedented amount of programming designed specifically for mastering pull-ups. No matter whether you’re brand new to pull-ups, you’ve struggled before using other programs to achieve your first unassisted rep, or you’re just looking to become even more of a pull-up machine, I cannot recommend this program enough.”

-Travis Pollen

“Meghan is one of the best fitness coaches I’ve ever seen. Her form is always perfect and her coaching is even better. She has an expert eye and can take even the most novice lifter and build incredible total body strength. I highly recommend Meghan. The value you get back when you put your trust in her goes above and beyond what you pay for.”

-Joel Seedman
Strength Coach
Owner At Advanced Human Performance

“Throughout my career, I’ve witnessed many coaches gain success in our industry. Unfortunately, two characteristics tend to come along for the ride: haughtiness and questionable ethics. The amazing thing about Meghan is that she exhibits neither of these qualities. Despite her extensive fitness knowledge, she remains humble. I’ve personally witnessed her turn down lucrative opportunities that conflicted with her integrity. Meghan Callaway is an incredible asset to the fitness industry; both for consumers and for fellow fitness professionals. I without hesitation endorse Meghan and her work.”

-Dani Singer
CEO & Director At Fit2Go Personal Training

“Meghan Callaway continues to surprise me with new innovative ways to train, especially with minimal equipment. It proves that it doesn’t take much to get an effective workout in, and with the correct guidance, good results can be achieved. And she is definitely an example of someone who can provide that good guidance.”

-Lee Boyce
Strength Coach. Writer At Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, Oxygen

“Meghan Callaway is a no-BS strength coach and trainer. Her approach is one of practicality, science, and experience. I love how she encourages women (and men) to find their strength through training – both mentally and physically, and to challenge themselves to true heights. I also love that she is not extreme, but rather, she educates people on how to fit workouts into a sustainable and happy lifestyle. Not only is Meghan a respected colleague of mine, she is also someone I consider a good friend with an amazing soul.”

-Erica Suter

“Meghan Callaway has been someone I’ve highly respected over the years since I first stumbled across her articles and videos. She exemplifies a strong and fit professional, who is always looking for ways to raise the bar in improving the fitness industry. What I love about Meghan is her creativity, ability to think outside the box, and she practices what she preaches. Thank you Meghan for all that you do.”

-Johnny Tea

“Meghan Callaway is a beast on the soccer field or pitch. Seriously don’t get in her way. Her strength as an athlete plays into her strengths as a coach and educator. Not a day goes by where I don’t see Meghan posting a blog or a video of something truly unique or inspiring.  This is why she is at the top of the fitness industry and a reason I keep checking out her work. Her pull-up makeover article is a great go to resource and one I continually go back to.”

-Chris Cooper
Owner Active Movement And Performance Training
Educator At Fitness Education Institute

”Meghan Callaway is a coach I have a lot of time for because she takes time to understand how the body works in order to teach her clientele movements to a very high standard, whilst knowing how to progress or regress lifts appropriately according to the individual’s current level of proficiency.

Her training related writing is always highly insightful, and her exercise videos always show good technique and control, based on the aforementioned I knew this manual would be good and I was more than happy to review it for somebody like Meghan. People can overlook “basics” or think they’re past them, but really “basic” compound exercises should always be at the heart of solid training programs no matter the level.

On this note, Meghan has created an excellent resource to improve people’s pull-up strength by working on the back, the core, glutes and posterior chain, so it’s somewhat holistic covering all angles.

After nearly twenty years lifting and over twelve as a professional, I learned a few new awesome cues and ideas that I’d not encountered before so for somebody new to the game this is a real fast-track to awesomeness and well worth the small investment in the resources.

The program is accompanied by quality exercise descriptions and clear videos, which I think is brilliant.

Bravo Meghan.
