What is Ascent - Adaptation and Regeneration?

Take A Tour

The Gym of the Future

Touted as “The Gym of the Future” by Men’s Journal, Ascent in Newport Beach could very well be one of Orange County’s best-kept secrets. With a strong focus on “out-of-the-box” regeneration technologies, one may say that Ascent is definitely ahead of the times…


Ascent Adaptation and Regeneration

Our Pursuit:

“We are committed to igniting a pandemic of well-being.”

Introduction to Ascent

Ascent was founded on a singular belief- our human body is a miracle. Designed to self-regulate and capable of its own healing. Our world today is fraught with ever-changing complexities. Nature and lifestyle are radically different. The support and elements that allowed our ancestors to thrive are in rare supply. Poor quality nutrition, toxic air and water, coupled with a more sedentary lifestyle, makes maintaining fundamental health a major challenge. Essential well-being and basic health are no longer things we can take for granted.

Fret not. We have valuable knowledge to share…

Enter our PROVEN, leading-edge technologies: Each of which is FDA “acknowledged” and “cleared”, if required. FDA “approval” is reserved for pharmaceuticals (Ascent does not offer or advise regarding pharmaceuticals. The technologies offered do not diagnose, treat, heal, manage or prevent any disease or other medical condition.). You can find published medical studies on the majority of Ascent technologies online (e.g. pubmed.gov – an archive of over 30 Million peer-reviewed biomedical and life science articles and studies, available to the public, with the aim of improving health – both globally and personally.) Within this last decade alone, we’ve been provided the ability to revitalize our bodies and protect our health even in the face of modern environmental degradation and lifestyle compromises. Our science, experience, technology and results are improving measurably and continuously.

Ascent has become recognized as THE industry leader in regenerative technologies. With over 11 years of individualized client experience, learning to customize programs for maximum performance and outcomes, and optimizing people’s bodies on a       cellular level, Ascent has earned a reputation as ‘LEADER’ in this new space.

Our technologies are ground-breaking, yet customizable with each individual’s health concerns in mind – i.e. the expertise gained over many years and thousands of clients, all of whom deserve and receive customized care – is our secret sauce.

Ascent is not a gym, not a spa, not a one-size-fits-all facility. Our team is hand-picked and consists of an experienced and dedicated staff who take pride and joy in serving our clientele and helping insure positive outcomes.  

The Ascent Team
Heather Hiniker
President / CEO
About Heather

Heather Hiniker has been a successful entrepreneur for most of her adult life. In 2007, after having been a top producing account executive in the mortgage industry for 10 years, Heather decided it was time to go into business for herself and cofounded an extremely successful mobile tire company. She is a founder and was CEO of Rubber On Wheels Inc., for over 3 years before selling her share to her partner in 2010.

It wasn’t until Heather was diagnosed with a progressive and deteriorating autoimmune disease that she found her true passion and path in natural adaptation methodologies. After attaining remission for her Rheumatoid Arthritis diagnosis with these holistic therapies, Heather opened what is now, one of the nation’s leading, sports performance and adaptation centers. Her vision is clearly reflected when visiting the Ascent facility in Newport Beach… it is no coincidence that her personal health struggles fuel her passion to share these cutting-edge technologies with the world.

Heather frequently speaks at and attends many local sports performance and endurance events. She has been quoted in Men’s Journal, The Orange County Register and Vice Magazine. She is also a trained and certified Nexalin (Advanced Brain Therapy) technician, CVAC Systems Administrator, and BEMER (Bio-Electro-Magnetic-Energy-Regulation) specialist. Heather is often referred to as a visionary, although she would disagree…. She simply believes she has “found her purpose and is grateful for the journey that has led her to do what she loves”.
