Whilst Guanghe focused on his higher studies he ended up with higher body fat instead.
His weight was spiralling out of control and a year after he got married, he found himself weighing 90kg (198 lbs).
It was certainly not how he envisaged life to be.
Determined to get back to his normal self, Guanghe turned to the experts at Ultimate Performance.
Even lockdown couldn’t stop him losing 11kg (24lbs) in 11 weeks alongside his trainer to build the lean and strong physique he wanted.
“The next time I go back home and meet my family and friends they won’t ask me what I ate in Sydney and how I got so fat!
“This time they will ask ‘how did you do that? How did you become so lean, how did you get these muscles?’”
Thinking back, Guanghe says his weight gain began around the time he walked down the aisle.
The pounds kept piling on unabated, and feeling out of control was getting him down.
“Last year, since I got married, my weight went up to 90kg (198 lbs), and lots of my friends and my family asked me ‘how can you get so fat like this?’
“I felt quite depressed with all this and decided I needed to lose weight immediately.
“I didn’t like looking fat and unhealthy. I wanted to build some muscle. I choose U.P. because it’s professional and efficient and would get me to my goal faster.”
The lifestyle changes wrought by U.P. had a far-reaching effect. Guanghe not only lost weight and gained self-confidence but also saw his wife enjoying a healthier routine too.
“It’s not just me; my wife changed as well. We both eat clean, we get up early, and we feel like we have more energy. I feel I can do more when I train. I can manage extra pressure from school, and I can push myself harder and do more.
“One of the biggest benefits is that I’ve changed a lot of bad habits into good habits. Especially around food and time management.”
When Guanghe came to U.P., he didn’t have a specific goal. The only outcome he could articulate was getting a six-pack. And his P.T. fine-tuned the programme to ensure he got his wish.
“Every two weeks, Dominic, my trainer, would check my weight and the body fat, etc. and tweak the programme further to ensure I got to my goal.
“It was nice to see myself inching closer to my goal. Nothing felt impossible! I knew that if I put my whole heart into the training, I could be sure I would get there.”
Guanghe says all the hard work he put into his transformation with his diet and training was worth it for the results he accomplished.
“At U.P., in a short period, you can definitely change not just your body but also your life. I am so proud of my days at U.P. It was exhausting at times, there were days when I felt ‘oh my god I cannot do more.’ but I did! And that is a great feeling to look back at.
“Even during the lockdown, when I was in China, I could still progress with their virtual sessions. I felt they gave me the right plan for the circumstances and ensured that virtual training sessions were tough enough to keep me engaged and moving forward.
“As I smash one goal, I create a new one. I just want to keep doing my best, and I don’t think I will ever stop!”
