OnUp Water

About Us

At OnUp, we believe in better. That’s why we decided to reimagine protein. We created a better tasting, more refreshing protein recovery beverage. We understand that fitness is an important part of life, but it isn’t the only thing in life. Each day has its challenges. Exercise allows us to escape for a bit. And we become better when we do—better spouses, parents, friends, colleagues, and neighbors. OnUp protein and electrolyte water rehydrates, replenishes, and repairs, allowing us to make the most of our fitness and life goals. By providing everything needed post workout, it prepares us to face the rest of the day. OnUp believes in better. Together we will go onward and upward to better wellbeing.

Meet the Women Behind OnUp


Erin

Many of my best memories are around athletic events. My favorite sport is tennis and I played competitively through college, but today I primarily spend my time running and biking around the Twin Cities. In the summer of 2018 I overcame my dislike of swimming to complete my first sprint tri with friends. I caught the triathlon bug and finished my first half ironman by the end of the summer. I don’t recover as quickly as I used to and my days are busy so I’m focused on ensuring that my workouts add to, not subtract from, the rest of my life and responsibilities. A refreshing recovery gives me the energy to continue to take on new challenges in every step of life.

I grew up up as a competitive gymnast. So after peaking as a teenager I set out on a search for the right athletic outlet. I was soon peer-pressured into my first half marathon and quickly fell in love with running. I’ll try anything athletic - ninja obstacle training is my latest addiction - so a good recovery is key. My husband, Don, and I became parents in 2017 to our beautiful little man, Ted, and welcomed our little peanut, Zoe, in January 2020. Becoming a mom really accentuated my desire to train and recover smart so I can get on with my day and be the very best wife and mom that I can be.

Our Story

We crossed paths at our day jobs and both agreed there was a gap in the market for a great tasting, refreshing and convenient protein recovery product. So, we created a drink that has everything we wanted and nothing that we didn't. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do. OnUp launched locally in the Twin Cities in 2019. Our journey has just begun and we look forward to connecting with you along the way. Subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social media for updates on our launch story.
