To achieve this incredible transformation, Robin has honed in his diet, taken his workouts to the next level and ensured his activity levels outside the gym were high too.
Before coming to U.P., Robin felt tired, lazy and sluggish. The thought of getting into shape made him feel overwhelmed, especially since becoming a new father, but it was something he had longed for over 10 years. Robin’s determination to push himself in the gym has had a positive effect in all areas of his life.
“To show up and give it my all in training translated into an attitude outside of the gym that allowed me to have more grit and tenacity in my every day, building my business and providing for my family.”
Robin shares how he gained physical and mental strength over the last 12 weeks…
I expected to have the guidance to work out consistently and eat a clean muscle building diet. My motivation was the fact that getting in the best shape of my life has been on my goal list for a decade. I am also a new dad so, I wanted to be healthy and in shape for as long as I can to play with and provide for my daughter. I wanted to feel better physically, mentally and be more productive. I have a wedding in Mexico to attend so I wanted to look great by then.
Before UP I was feeling tired and lazy, easily defeated mentally and sluggish. I was feeling stuck and overwhelmed when thinking of the prospect of getting in shape.
My diet was decent before starting with U.P I would have a lot of chicken, quinoa, oatmeal, veg, and fruit. The problem was I would also have a few craft beers a week, and I would eat out and have burgers and fries.
My lifestyle was pretty sedentary. I work from behind a computer at home, sometimes I would play soccer once a week, and I would try and hit my 10,000 steps a day, but it was hit or miss if I accomplished that daily.
I was eating more protein and more veg. I was initially tired, hungry and had cravings. But now I have more energy, a clearer head and I feel more confident. I have started making conscious choices when I eat out.
I started hitting 10,000 steps and made it more of a mission to get it done. I started sprinting and going to soccer weekly sometimes twice a week. I worked out every Monday and Friday at U.P. and I did my own workouts on Wednesday and Saturday about 70% of the time.
I had more energy during the day and for my workouts. My cardio at soccer improved. My immune system feels more resilient. I am more productive and motivated.
The biggest thing I would say is that the work I put in to ensure I was always upping my weights. I tried to hit personal bests and work to failure.
The training pushed me to work hard, but everyone was still friendly. It was very accommodating to my ever-changing lifestyle of a new baby, working wife, vacations and business trips.
I’m happy with my photos — I like how I look, how I feel. I have more confidence, and I am motivated to shed more body fat before beginning to start building more muscle and mass.
The most important thing I learned on my three-month journey is nothing happens without commitment, consistent action, and being accountable for every small choice I make.
The accountability was probably the biggest factor in helping me be successful. From the emails to the tracking app and logging in My Fitness Pal. Taking measurements every week was a big factor, it helped me with the discipline as I knew if I didn’t stick to it, I would still be measured next week. This helped me make stronger choices around my diet and lifestyle during the week.
Having Dylan as my trainer, educating, pushing, reminding me and making adjustments when needed was key.
Ultimately it gave me the confidence, knowledge, mental and physical power to keep working out on my own. I have now invested three months of my time, work, money, sweat, pain. The momentum had been built the foundation solidified. It gave me the push I needed.
I think U.P. is unique in what it offers — it’s a full package of non-stop help and support so you can reach your lifestyle, diet and fitness goals. I would totally recommend it to anyone looking to have all their bases covered when they are ready to make a true transformation — not just in losing weight or building muscle but improving their overall life.
