You can have the best body you’ve ever had at any age – 45-year-old Adrian is a testament to that.
His goal was simple when he started at UP – lose a little weight and perhaps get a six-pack.
Now after 16 weeks he has made a remarkable transformation and achieved his goals, and much more.
Losing 10kg and dropping to a defined 9% body fat, Adrian has the lean, athletic physique that most men of any age would be proud of.
He says he has more energy, better posture, improved mobility and better overall wellbeing.
Company Director Adrian says he now has the tools and the knowledge to stay in this shape long into the future.
He says: “Looking in the mirror every morning is now the only reminder and motivating factor required to keep in this shape for life.”
Adrian speaks about his 16-week transformation below…
I was expecting to ‘lose a bit of excess fat’, and re-kick-start my training that had plateaued.
My main motivation was to lose what I thought was just a few pounds and aim for a six-pack. I didn’t want to slip into middle age with a spare tyre and never recover!
I felt in reasonable shape both physically and mentally – I would always say I could be a bit fitter.
My diet was in a pretty good place; I’m not a massive drinker etc. I could succumb to my sweet tooth from time to time, especially when very busy with work.
I became very disciplined with regard to monitoring what I ate and also with my daily weigh-in.
I always know that ‘if it can be measured, it can be managed,’ but having to report into someone (my trainer Emily) actually made me be consistent.
The help on the ratios of carbs/protein/fat and, more importantly, the time of day to consume was quite a game changer.
More energy – no mid-afternoon slumps. Probably fewer mood swings.
Yes, you have to commit. But a busy man always has time. Once you realise that you have a finite amount of time per week, then you have to prioritise.
Putting training and wellbeing first actually has such positive effect on all other aspects of my life that I probably created the time for training by being more effective. It snowballs from there.
Great. I lost a lot more than I thought I was going to – felt and looked lean, got a much-improved posture, as well as improved mobility and wellness.
In my case: just subtle tweaks in my diet can make a huge difference. The daily discipline, which is now routine – weighing in, scores, food and photos.
Learning how to split up training sessions through the week, how form during a rep is more important than the actual weight.
The value of a warm-up, stretching and active recovery.
I set myself targets that I achieved, and I know with confidence that I can adjust training and diet and change things quickly.
I have kicked a few bad diet habits that I won’t return to as I have now, with discipline as described, created better habits.
I can’t see myself just putting weight back on – I am sure this will have improved my health for life. My energy levels are much improved.
Yes. The boost in energy levels and well-being positively affect every aspect of your life.
The changes I have put in place are easy to maintain. For me, the body changes (size and leanness etc.) give me a great sense of achievement of where I have come over the past few months.
