Although I was no stranger to the gym or diets, I was fed up of constantly ‘starting up again’ or ‘reworking my routine’. I wanted someone to take the guess work out of what I was doing and design a gym and diet program that would definitely work. Having faith in my routine and having someone was also enthusiastic about my performance got me on track and kept me there.

What do you feel that you have achieved:

Training with the UP team I managed to get into the best form of my life. I commenced training with a body fat % of approximately 17% and dropped it to sub 10% in a short space of time. My overall weight loss was minimal, hence I had achieved a substantial increase in muscle mass at the same time. It is extremely motivating to see your body changing on a weekly basis.

What have you learned:

I was shocked at how quickly my body started to change, you always think that it takes a long time to make a serious improvement to your physical appearance. In my case it took about three weeks before I was shaking my head in shock.

I always knew diet was important for success, but I never knew how to string the pieces together. The UP team taught me a huge amount about my diet (or lack thereof), when you start to focus on all the little things all the big things start to happen. I now hold my diet routine with much higher importance than the specifics of my exercise routine.

What’s next for you:

I plan to continue with UP, to keep learning and keep training, I love turning up each week for my sessions.

What would you be willing to tell others about your experience with us:

Most people I speak to, ‘used to be in shape’, or are ‘planning to get in shape’, but I meet very few people who actually are in shape. Stop talking about it, stop guessing and experimenting, forget the personal trainers at the local gyms, work with people who will get you where you want to be. I highly recommend Ultimate Performance to anyone who is really serious about getting in shape.
