Doctor Al was in his fifties and had begun to look and feel his age.
He saw work colleagues around him suffering with chronic diseases and was worried his health was heading the same way.
Despite following diets and trying to exercise regularly, his weight was going up and so was his cholesterol – so he wanted a radical approach that would overhaul his health and reinvigorate his lifestyle.
That’s exactly what he found with Ultimate Performance.
With a results-driven approach and a world-class trainer behind him, he was able to lose 8kg (17lbs) in 11 weeks and then back the clock decades to look and feel his best again.
“I was feeling tired, having frequent back issues, looking old, carrying too much around my waist, struggling with high cholesterol. Starting training with Ollie at U.P. has given me a new lease of life.
“I feel healthier now than I did 10-20 years ago. I no longer have that fear of becoming ill from being old which is making me feel so much happier.
“I’m sporting a six-pack for the first time in my life and looking much more muscular. I have more energy and less back pain. I’m no longer taking statins.” Working as an intensive care doctor meant Al didn’t have time or the energy to prioritise his health and fitness the way he wanted to.
He knew he needed to reinvigorate his training and make some sweeping changes to his lifestyle to get him out of the rut.
“Before I came to U.P., I was going to the gym maybe once a week and I was just trudging through the gym repertoire not really making any progress and just slowly putting on more weight feeling unhealthy and lethargic.
“I was looking for something that not only gave quick results but also would help me adopt a new lifestyle so that I could take it with me into the future rather than just doing it for a month or two.
“Looking at U.P. they look like they have the ingredients that would suit me.”
One of the biggest challenges Al was faced was altering his diet. After trying many diet fads and achieving no results, Al’s trainer at U.P. not only focused on his physical training exercises but also modified his diet into a more nutritious and healthy one to achieve better results.
“My diet wasn’t too bad as I was adopting a paleo diet, then vegan. However, I still felt I was putting on weight. I was not eating regularly during the day and binge eating at night.
“I was snacking quite a bit so although I was eating healthy food I didn’t feel healthy with my diet. As far as my lifestyle goes, I thought it was an active lifestyle but in retrospect now I realised it was quite a sedentary lifestyle and required a change of mindset to move forward.”
“I was lacking in self-confidence with the way that I looked when on the beach I was looking old, looking my age and I didn’t feel that I looked fit when I saw myself and that’s one of the reasons I came to U.P.”
Al noticed the results within the first few weeks with the body pains vanishing and the energised feeling when he woke up.
U.P.’s data-driven approach meant he could track and monitor his progress and the small changes and improvements he was seeing motivated him to push on and complete the program.
The small changes motivated him to continue and complete the program.
The results have been life-changing – and now at 54, he knows he has the skills and knowledge to keep on improving for years to come.
“I started noticing it almost immediately and felt healthier. I had more energy right at the beginning, and being on the high protein low-calorie diet I started losing weight and started putting on muscle which so quickly surprised me.
“I’m walking 10 to 15 kilometres every single day without fail and eating healthy food three to five times a day.
“The training has improved my lifestyle by giving me more energy for my family where I find that I’m playing with my kids a lot more, I’m able to carry my kids now without all the aches and pains I had beforehand and I’m more attuned to what I’m eating.
“I feel a lot more positive for the future and I look forward to going to the gym even when I’m not at U.P.”
