But as his lack of energy started affecting the time he spent with his two young children, he decided it was time to knuckle down and get fit.
He chose to go with the best in the business and joined Ultimate Performance.
“My results are phenomenal! I lost 49lbs (22kg) in 19 weeks, from 187lbs to 139lbs (85kg to 63kg). My body fat was not measurable initially because I was overweight, but at the end of the transformation, I was 12-13%. I now feel very confident in myself, and I feel nothing is impossible anymore!
“I was able to run 5km (3mi) in 23 and a half minutes, which I had never done before. I was also able to run 15km (9mi). I now know that I can do anything, if I set my mind to it!”
Nick had grown up being active in sports, but as he went on to university and started working, health and fitness took a backseat, and it all resulted in him slowly putting on weight over the years.
“Before my transformation with U.P., my attention span and physical stamina were lacking. I always felt I needed a nap in the afternoon, especially on the weekends. I have very little energy to play with my kids or take them to the playground. I couldn’t run more than 3km (2mi); I couldn’t swim more than two laps in a 25-metre pool!
“Before U.P., my diet was unhealthy and based on convenience. I would eat anything conveniently available or just unhealthy. I also have a habit of overeating and consuming a lot of alcohol. In terms of lifestyle, exercising was infrequent and sedentary. Sleeping habits were very poor, as I was not getting adequate sleep.
“I have two young kids – aged four and two – and they are my key motivating factor for trying to get fit. Because when they become teenagers, I will be close to my 50s.”
U.P. trainers and the programme took care of all his terrible lifestyle habits and showed him a sustainable way to get healthy. He has seen massive improvements and credits the holistic nature of the transformation sessions for his results.
“I have been with two other personal trainers before, and they were very focused on just the training but were completely lacking in nutrition, lacking in rest and recovery knowledge.
“The trainers here are highly knowledgeable not just at training, but also at nutrition. And that is a big plus. And I think the rest and recovery knowledge that they impart has been very useful to maintain the 20 weeks I have been at Ultimate Performance.”
“In my opinion, the ability of the trainers to connect and communicate is critical. For example, at one point, about a month after I started training, there was a lot of stress in my body, and the U.P. trainer noticed that and advised me to go for a tissue massage. After that, I could lift more! It totally changed my performance levels.
“During the programme, I travelled a total of six weeks on and off. Saydul, my P.T., helped me tailor my diet and gave invaluable advice and guidance on programming my workout routine while travelling to ensure my progress continues. That certainly helped a great deal.”
The motivation and support given by his P.T. changed the way Nick approached his fitness and health.
What seemed impossible, just a few months ago became completely doable.
“The biggest takeaway is the change in mindset. I thought it was impossible to lose that much weight. Today I have seen the effect, and I know it is possible.
“U.P. has been the best and fastest and most beneficial ‘return on investment’ I have ever received! Not only have I changed physically and aesthetically, but also mentally. And that can-do attitude is the biggest benefit for me.
“I also gained so much in terms of knowledge about health, diet, and training that I can now continue to lead a healthy life that I hope to pass on to my children.
“I am now more energetic, more focused, and determined in whatever setting, and it has become obvious to many who have known me. People say I have a lot of energy and passion, but I think it’s all because I have transformed to be more physically and mentally stronger.”
