I felt confident wearing a bikini when I was on holiday. It’s the first time in my life I’ve ever felt like that.

38-year-old Farimah was gaining weight rapidly and didn’t know how to bring it under control.

She was having to buy ‘bigger sizes’ whenever she went clothes shopping.

And now, it had reached a point where she admitted she felt ‘too big’.

Farimah decided to put her faith in Ultimate Performance – a decision that has helped her drop just over 10kg of weight.

She couldn’t manage one pull-up on day one. Now, fast forward 25 weeks, she can’t recall ever feeling this strong, and finds pull-ups a breeze.

That’s down to her trainer – a proven professional who educated Farimah on both her form in the gym, and getting her diet right.

She’s been showered with compliments from close friends and family – but that wasn’t the best part…

Farimah really reaped the rewards when taking a well-deserved holiday.

She finally felt happy in her own skin and admitted that – for the first time in her life – she was confident wearing a bikini!

Here, she reveals how she did it…

Was there a specific moment that made you realise that you needed a helping hand with your fitness and nutrition?

The moment I realised that I needed to make a change was when I started to notice that my clothes didn’t fit anymore. I was having to buy bigger sizes. That was the point where something needed to happen because I didn’t want to gain any more weight.

That was the first time in my life where I felt too big, so it wasn’t a good feeling.

When I recovered from Covid, having lost a lot of weight in a short amount of time, I ate normally again and noticed that my weight was increasing really quickly. I’m an extreme person, so everything I do, even gaining weight, can be extreme.

I wanted to get back in shape – and even better shape than I was before, but in a healthy way. I wanted to lose weight whilst looking fitter at the same time.

How do you feel about your transformation with U.P. after losing 10kg during your journey?

As a person you have an image of yourself. It’s hard to see how I look, so I notice it by the reaction of other people. That shows that I look different.

People are complimenting me, and they’re surprised when they see me. That’s been a reality check.

I like what I see. I really like my appearance. I see muscles. I definitely see less fat. I like how my clothes are fitting, how they feel and how they look.

I’ve always been confident, but now I’m more confident that I can achieve something if I really want it.

This journey has shown that I can achieve my goals in a short time.

How much of a difference have you noticed in yourself after 25 weeks and what has been the reaction of others?

I was in total shock. I couldn’t believe how I looked.

It’s hard to look at the beginning pictures. I can’t believe I was that big!

My parents are always supportive and that was the same throughout this journey. They were cheering when I sent videos of me doing pull-ups. They thought it was amazing. They’re happy for me that I can do this.


What have been your biggest achievements during this process and what changes has it made to your life?

My main goal was looking better and losing weight.

The first time I did pull-ups, I couldn’t believe I was doing it. That was one of the best feelings ever.

A lot of things have changed, especially my mentality, which is what my parents and my family noticed.

When I signed up here, I was planning to travel by car, but I didn’t do that once as I was focused on getting my steps in. It’s not only my appearance that has changed, my lifestyle has too.

That’s one of the big changes.

How has your experience been since you started your fitness journey at U.P., and how has it impacted your confidence?

This has been one of my greatest investments. I didn’t expect to enjoy it this much. That was a big surprise. The whole vibe changed.

I was going to stop when I reached my goal, but now I don’t know when I’m going to stop. Perhaps I’ll never stop!

I learned a lot about training, about healthy food, counting calories, being able to eat more than I was expecting. It’s all been a learning curve for me.

I felt confident wearing a bikini when I was on holiday. I was uncomfortable in the beginning. Even when I wasn’t too fat, I still wasn’t completely comfortable.

For the first time in my life, I was wearing a bikini with confidence.
