Life and work took their toll on 54-year-old Robert – he felt unfit and unhealthy.
He flew internationally every week for work, he was dining out with clients often, and consistent exercise was lacking for his lifestyle.
When he was back in London, he cycled to work daily – but it did little to change his body.
The lockdown came, and Robert says he got lazy, which further compounded the problem.
Seeing some of Ultimate Performance’s incredible transformation results in his British Airways in-flight magazine, he knew this was the solution.
Now, after 27 weeks, Robert has turned the clock back 30 years to feel young, fit and healthy again after losing 14kg (31lbs).
“Would I say I’m stronger, fitter and leaner than ever – and in control of my diet? Yes!
“My body went back in time 30 years to when I was 25. I have not seen my body look like this since then!”
“I have lost 14kg (31lbs). I am back to Rob in 1992, but with a six-pack!”
Before his transformation at U.P., Robert found losing weight and staying healthy tough.
It was a battle he felt he was losing on his own.
With daily work travel and a hectic schedule, he couldn’t get to where he wanted with his health and fitness.
That’s why he came to U.P. – for round-the-clock support and management of every aspect of his training, diet and lifestyle.
“I started training at U.P. about a year ago. I was travelling every week internationally before the pandemic. I always saw the advertisement for U.P. in the British Airways magazine.
“It was something I always read on my flights, and I just thought ‘Okay, it’s about time’.
“I was quite nervous before starting; I never had a personal trainer. My previous diet was horrible. Lots of pasta and sandwiches, and I never counted the calories.
“I cycled daily to work when I was in London, but I had not worked out with weights for quite a long time.”
From the day he started at Ultimate Performance, everything clicked into place.
His training and nutrition were mapped out, and every metric of progress was tracked in his Ultimate Performance App.
He saw results in a matter of weeks.
“When I started working out in U.P. and met my trainer, I noticed my weight loss straight away.
“My number one motivation was my U.P. trainer, Steve. Without his almost daily encouragement and checking in via messages on the U.P. BodyProphet app, I would have lost the drive and determination.
“My trainer was a real mate, and he wanted the results as much as I did.
“Daily responses made me focused, especially living on my own and working out from home every day for the last four months.”
Far from having to spend every waking hour exercising in the gym, Robert’s personalised program was simple.
“We worked out three times a week, and I was on the new diet, which all makes the difference.
“It’s most important to stick to the protein, carbs, and fat allowance and get guidance was needed to.
“At U.P., my trainer especially made me realised that if you stick with it and follow the finely sculptured plan of nutrition, then the results will happen.”
Not even the coronavirus lockdown could deter Robert from getting the results he wanted.
Everything seamlessly switched online. He was able to keep his progress going with virtual training under the guidance of his trainer and a few select pieces of Amazon-bought kit – resistance bands, dumbbells and a barbell.
“I guess one of the most important things that happened through Covid and my training with U.P. was the availability of my trainer personally engaging with me daily online.
“Without that encouragement and without that checking in, I wouldn’t be able to get that disciplined. And that just brings a big difference,
“What I hear from other friends who are using personal trainers throughout Covid. You know, others might go to the park and try to do workouts there; I think the consistency of online training and follow-ups with my trainer personally made me have the results I got today.”
Along with his trainer and his hard work, the results astonished not only him but also his children and friends.
“My physique is impressive, not just to me, but to my kids and the few friends I have shared my pictures with.
“I now exercise 3 or 4 hours a day, including 10,000 steps. This does wonders for my mental health rather than more Netflix and Prime.
“I have never been stronger in my life, including when I trained every day at university in the 80s when I was on the university rowing team up early every morning.”
With a new-found positive attitude in life, Robert’s physical transformation has positively impacted other aspects of his life too.
It has helped him feel more youthful and energised in life while learning weight training, nutrition, and self-discipline.
It has proved to be a real investment in his health. His advice to anyone else starting transformation? Trust the process, put your faith in the U.P. team and you will get results.
“Follow every instruction, don’t try to adapt. Everyone at U.P. makes sure that I am always positive from the go. From the gym manager to my trainer and all the colleagues there, always smiled, always said ‘looking great’ when you step into the gym. The online support was also incredible.
“It took me a few weeks to know it was me in the mirror. I did notice my kids telling me I have added attitude towards life which changed because I became much more positive.”
