The 39-year-old investment banker suffered from escalating lifestyle diseases like hypertension and high cholesterol.
A decade of medication left him at the same spot – in fact, things were only getting worse with time.
His weight was increasing, and his hypertension symptoms were getting worse – he finally decided that the usual pharmaceutical methods were not the answer.
Some online research brought him to U.P. Dubai, and the transformation programme seemed like the complete package to get his health back on track.
Abhishek started his stint at U.P. weighing 76.5kg and measured a sizeable 99cm around his waist.
Just a few short months of hard work coupled with the right nutrition got his weight down to 60kg and cut over 20cm from his waistline.
“Losing 17kg in 3 months is an achievement by any yardstick.
“It has been a life-changing experience. I feel completely transformed.
“I have become a topic of discussion amongst my friends, colleagues, and relatives and have set a benchmark for others to replicate.”
The drop in weight looks as astounding in real life as they seem on paper. It’s something Abhishek barely thought possible when he first started his journey at U.P.
By his own admission, Abhishek’s biggest problem was food. He couldn’t resist overindulging, and the fact that all his favourites were calorie-rich Indian dishes only made it worse.
“For the last 20 years, I have been exercising – it’s not as if I was leading a very idle or sedentary life. But the results were not visible.
“To a large extent, I would attribute my problems to my diet.
“Indian food is very rich in calories, and it’s very hard to say no. Whatever is yummy, whatever is delicious is full of calories!”
“But at U.P., I realised that it’s all about discipline. If you want to look a particular way if you want to get rid of these lifestyle problems like cholesterol and obesity, you have to exhibit a certain degree of discipline.”
Abhishek dived into U.P. with complete dedication.
Nutrition was a big challenge for him as he was a vegetarian, but with his trainer’s guidance, he discovered new types of food that could fulfil his dietary requirements.
“Weight training 3 hours a week is no big deal. In my opinion, it can easily be managed, no matter how busy a person is.
“Achieving such a drastic transformation by merely putting in 3 hours a week is simply incredible. I have learned so much about diet and nutrition.
“In fact, the eating habits of my entire family has improved considerably since I joined, and results are apparent for everyone within my family.”
Abhishek was startled at the pace of change and how quickly he saw results.
After years of trying on his own to get in shape, a little guidance on the right way to train and eat, and the weight was dropping off him.
But the impact on his health was perhaps the most incredible part of it all.
“What was remarkable was that just after one month of joining U.P. I was able to shed 8kg and simply because of that I was able to get rid of hypertension, cholesterol issues and snoring all in one stroke.
“I visited my doctor, and my blood pressure reading was very low, and he immediately asked me to discontinue my blood pressure medications. All my readings are now perfect!”
Abhishek is still astounded by the results he achieved at U.P. and credited his trainer, Yash, for mentoring him through the whole process.
“I never anticipated the results to trickle in so fast!
“Now, whenever I see my old photographs from Facebook or Instagram, I find it very difficult to visualise or imagine how much weight I was carrying at that time.”
It feels like the start of an incredible new chapter in his life – with health on his side and the tools to continue his journey, he feels anything is possible.
“The transformation has been remarkable, but I still feel this is just the beginning.
“I have got places to go, but at least now, I have learnt to respect my body better.
“And I have realised what it requires and what it will take to move to the next level from here. It is all about doing the right thing, the right way, and through the right technique.”
“I have learnt a lot of good things at U.P. – what to eat, when to eat, how much to eat and how to alter the diet in a sustainable way and at the same time how to train in the right way.
“This is something that can be sustained in perpetuity, depending on how I can maintain it and the kind of discipline I am able to exhibit.”
Reflecting on his time at U.P., he feels that it was the best investment he could have made. You cannot put a price on health.
“I can’t actually quantify U.P.’s value because health can’t be quantified.
“On the face of it, U.P. seems expensive but then the kind of results it yields within such a short span of time – it is worth every penny I spent here.”
