Professional handbalance coach and performer, Ulrik Ask Fossum

Hey there,

I’m Ulrik, a self-taught handbalancer and certified personal trainer, originally from Norway. I coach handstands via workshops, 1 to 1, and online. I would love to help you improve your handbalance practice via Online Coaching and workshops, so that you can finally achieve your handstand goals.

I don’t have any athletic background and have learned everything from scratch. I’ve been a personal trainer since 2013 and coaching handstands specifically since 2016. I enjoy traveling and teaching workshops around the world. Currently, I’m quarantined in Oslo, but when I’m not traveling I live in Vienna. If you want to know more about my story, just click below!


I currently offer a number of online handstand coaching options to help you master the art of handbalance from the comfort of your own home. The sessions are suitable for all levels of handbalancers and cover a range of topics from holding your first handstand, developing the press, perfecting your line and even creating advanced handstand shapes and transitions.

Join me for a weekend of handbalancing and bodyweight skills training. My handstand workshops cover the most effective exercises, techniques and programming methods to achieve skills such as press, tuck and one arm handstands (OAHS). These masterclasses are suitable for all levels of inversion addicts, whether you are learning for Crossfit, Calisthenics, Yoga or just for fun.
