Even with daily spinning classes, HIIT sessions, and constant dieting, he didn’t get the results he saw on the magazine covers.
He did everything he was told, but his body fat refused to shift.
Exhausted and discouraged, he decided to give it one last shot and signed up for the 12-week body transformation programme at Ultimate Performance London City.
“It is genuinely life-changing.
“I would never have got to this level without coming here. I couldn’t recommend the place highly enough. I showed a couple of guys at work the training sheet and the training plan had so much detail on it – I have never seen anything like that, and neither have they!”
John had always been a long-term fan of U.P.; he had read all of founder Nick Mitchell’s books but had never taken the plunge with a full personal training programme.
When he finally committed to a programme at U.P. London City, he quickly saw that the premium price tag really did deliver a premium service.
It took him just two months at U.P. to lose 13kg and bring his body fat down from 28% to 11%. He couldn’t have asked for a better or faster return on investment.
“Every time I went to the gym last year, I thought I probably should just join U.P. So, it’s been niggling away at the back of my mind for ages.
“I have a gym membership, and I go to daily spin classes. I am getting fitter, but my body shape is not changing in any way. I guess that’s what you really want, right? To look good.
“There is so much information out there that it’s overwhelming. You read Men’s Health, and it says that you will go catabolic if you don’t eat 500g of protein a day and next week it will tell you something else.
“So, what I wanted from U.P. was the removal of doubt. I wanted to be sure that the diet’s working and I wanted a trainer and gym that I could trust blindly.”

Before coming to U.P., John was training on a loose programme; he was going to the gym inconsistently and doing daily spinning and HIIT routines which left him feeling exhausted and hungry.
However, the results never matched the effort he was putting in. He was cycling through the same 4kg weight gain or loss.
“Weekends I am knackered, and can’t spend time with the kids; I also end up overeating. I would do it consistently for about four weeks and then one big night out and I would slip right back into unhealthy living the next week. It is so disheartening to put in all the effort and get nothing back.
“Here at U.P., it’s three hours a week, a little bit of cardio, cycling to work and back, and the results were instant. The first two weeks, the drop off was massive.
“I didn’t realise how bad my technique was on some exercises. I was lifting too heavy. There were exercises – like the dumbbell press – on which I thought I was an expert. At U.P., I realised my technique was crap; I wasn’t getting the most out of it.”
At U.P., John learnt the value of patience and adhering to a strict diet. He realised that trying to smash daily HIIT routines while still eating a high-calorie diet was not going to work. With U.P.’s diet and training plan, the guesswork, doubts and worry were taken out of the picture – he now knew exactly what he needed to do.
“It’s all there in the books. There is no magic, no secret. If you follow the programme, you will get the same results. However, the willpower required to carry it through is more than what I had. You need a partner or a trainer to see you through it. Ultimately, it’s worth the investment to get trained properly.
“Now that I know the correct techniques, I have the confidence to go out and do it on my own. I know exactly what I need to do. I have the details for maintenance, calories, macros, etc. I know that if I go for a holiday and have a blast, I can get back and get myself lean again. I know that changing your body composition takes work, but it no longer seems like it’s magic or is genetically impossible.”
“I always had this niggling doubt about my training before. It was this one thing I couldn’t master! And now I feel I know what I need to do; I feel in control.”
