Romee was stuck in a vicious cycle of bad eating, no exercise and evenings laid on the couch.
Her lethargic lifestyle left her feeling unfulfilled and unhappy.
Once she finished her studies, 24-year-old Romee was ready for a big shake-up of her life and chose the professionals at Ultimate Performance as the perfect partner to achieve it.
Romee’s transformation showed her the power of weight training – not just in toning up, losing 13kg (28lbs) and dropping three dress sizes, but helping her feel strong, confident and happy again.
“The transformation changed me in many ways, but most importantly, it changed me physically – I became leaner, I gained a lot of muscle – but not in a bad way. In the beginning, I was scared to become like a dude, but that didn’t happen.
“Now I know that weightlifting is not just for men; it doesn’t make you look bulky; it makes you stronger, leaner. It gave me more courage to do other things in life; try out new things that seem scary at first.
“The biggest change was that I became active and started going out and started enjoying being active and eating clean. I sleep better, too; I just feel so much more energetic and a lot happier and more confident in many ways.”
Romee lived an unstructured life before joining U.P. Everything was mood-based; she ate as and when she pleased and barely exercised.
“I felt inactive, and I felt like my condition was deteriorating – I was becoming more and more sluggish and lazy.
“The more I went down that road, the harder it was for me to get off the couch and do something. It became impossible to be motivated to get moving and to live a healthy lifestyle and watch what I ate.”
Food was the biggest thing holding her back. Coming to U.P. was an eye-opener and helped her regain control of her diet and lifestyle.
“I didn’t know what I was doing. I really just enjoyed eating whatever I liked. I thought I was being healthy. But when I came to U.P., I realized I really didn’t know what I was doing.
“Now I choose my food based on its nutritional value; I didn’t know it was possible to do that and still enjoy the food. It didn’t feel like dieting at all. I really enjoyed it, and it is something I will always follow.”
Romee is much happier now, and it’s not just because she is three dress sizes slimmer. The outward changes wrought by U.P. are complemented by a lot of inner happiness as well.
“When I look at my old pictures, I don’t think that I was fat or anything like that but that I was so unhappy. And I can see that a lot in the first few pictures. And after a while, when I started to enjoy working out, started to enjoy healthy food and became active, you can see in the pictures that I look so much happier. I am a different girl in the last 2-3 pictures.
“Physically, I am thrilled, and I really didn’t expect it to be this nice. Mentally also I have seen improvement. I am more friendly; less arrogant. I enjoy certain things a lot more, and I don’t get annoyed by smaller things anymore. It has made me a lot more stable and happy.”
Before starting, Romee had a few doubts; she wasn’t too keen to bulk up with muscles and was worried that the strict regime might be too much for her usually full social life. But with her personal trainer handholding her through the program, she found the right balance and sailed through her transformation.
“I would have definitely not gained the same results in any other place.
“Here you are guided by such great people who know exactly what they are doing. At a point when the weight loss plateaued out, my P.T. knew exactly what to do, and I got a new diet on my email, and it immediately worked.
“The same for when an exercise is too hard; the P.T. always steps in to improvise and change it. I don’t think this level of personalization is something that any other place offers. It’s money well spent. I wouldn’t have gained these results anywhere else.”
“I think I waited too long to get started, but I am so glad I did it. It brought me so much; I am so much happier than I was a few months ago. It has taught me to be focused in other parts of my life – and all without looking like a bodybuilder!”
