For 10 years, Jeff trained on his own and tried everything to lose weight.
But since his days in the Army, he lost his spark for fitness, so he never achieved the results he wanted.
He never felt confident in his body and wasn’t happy about taking his shirt off at the beach. But instead of living with his unhappiness, 30-year-old trader Jeff did something about it.
Partnering with the experts at Ultimate Performance helped him achieve an incredible body transformation that has restored his confidence and his passion for fitness.
“My eighteen weeks at U.P. has been an amazing journey. My trainer was very professional. With his guidance, I have managed to achieve amazing results I never thought possible. I have lost 26kg (57lbs)!
“It’s changed the way I look at myself. Right now, I am very confident with my body, and my self-esteem has improved.
“My mind is stronger now too. My level of discipline has increased.”
Before Ultimate Performance, Jeff had struggled with his weight for years, bouncing from program to program with little or no success.
It was affecting his confidence.
“In the past, I was really overweight and fat. I remember that there were a couple of situations where I felt like I really disliked my body. For example, if my friends were to ask me out to the beach, I wouldn’t go with them because I didn’t want to take my shirt off. Or when I used to go to CrossFit gyms, where people just take off their top and work out, and I couldn’t do that, even when I was 80kg (176lbs).
“I’ve been training on my own for at least 10 years, ever since my Army days, and this is something different from what I’m used to.
“It’s just so simple, you just have to be in a calorie deficit and just do what you can do beyond the deficit. A little trick, no snacks here and there helped, and I learned quite a lot on this area.”
Jeff had tried so many different things to lose weight.
During the coronavirus circuit-breaker, he tried a pull-up program which left him injured, in pain and unable to train.
“I was doing a lot of pull-ups in the past, especially during the circuit breaker time.
“I was on this pull-up chin-up program, and I just whacked the volume, which gave me elbow tendonitis. After that, I couldn’t do many pull-ups and my elbows just keep hurting for like months, it didn’t recover.”
Jeff knew it was time to get proper guidance on his training and diet.
Ultimate Performance proved to be the professional partner he needed to train efficiently and effectively and achieve real results.
“When I came to U.P., a lot of things changed because now when I train with my trainer, I have a lot of guidance. I believe that because of the balance in the exercises, I’m hurting less now, and the quality of my training improved.
“I feel good and strong. I don’t feel any elbow pain – my elbow is good now.”
Jeff’s transformation helped him discover the pieces of the puzzle that were missing when it came to weight loss.
His plan was holistic. It not only helped him understand nutrition and the most effective way to train, but helped him develop the right mindset and self-discipline to get in great shape.
“If we are not honest with what we eat or how we train, then we will never achieve results.
“This mindset, that I picked up, helped and I carried it over to other areas of my life – my work, my relationship and my family.
“There has been a very big change in me, not just physically, but also in the way I interact with my colleagues, my bosses and my family – that’s one thing that I’m really very happy about.”
This whole journey has never been just about looking good. For Jeff, feeling good too has been a game-changer. It has also given him that spark back where he enjoys working out and staying healthy.
“It made me realise that I have a strong passion for fitness. In the past, before U.P., I would just go to the gym with my friends, and I never felt that I wanted to push myself to be better.
“I have got this passion back. A few years back, I was enthusiastic and all, but that died off. Now I’m back on track with my fitness.”
