35-year-old lawyer Faiza put her rapid weight gain down to her long, exhausting hours.
Most of her time was spent working on cases or sitting in front of her computer screen.
Faiza’s goal was clear in her mind – lose all the weight she had gained from this sedentary lifestyle. Crafting diets herself in the past simply hadn’t worked, so she reached out to the trusted experts.
Partnering with her U.P. trainer for 24 weeks has demonstrated the value of bespoke training with a coach who was deeply invested in her progress.
Faiza has now lost 15.4kg and finally found a program that works around her commitments. Her transformation was so impactful, she was even voted the top lawyer at work.
She has lost stubborn body fat that she thought would be with her for life and has come to realise weight training is not too difficult for a novice like herself.
“I thought it would be too hard for me because I was not used to training. But that wasn’t the case at all. I saw results in two or three weeks which was a fantastic feeling.
“I have become leaner than ever before. That was a big achievement for me because I have never been in this shape in my entire life.
“Honestly, joining U.P. has been the best decision I have ever taken for my health. It’s a life-changing experience.”
Here, Faiza speaks about the impact of having a trainer invested in her goals, and how healthy eating and frequent weight training was straightforward to fit into her routine.
What was your lifestyle like before your transformation?
Before I came to U.P. I didn’t have a healthy lifestyle because I used to work a lot. I was sitting on a chair the whole day in front of my computer, and I didn’t have time to train or eat healthily.
I was just gaining weight progressively through the years. I always knew I wanted to drop my weight, but I could never find the proper structure. I’ve had many trainers in the past and I’ve tried a lot of diets, but nothing was really working because I was basically on my own.
I needed to find someone who would be able to follow up daily and who would advise on the food and the training. This is what I have found at U.P.
What was your motivation to partner with U.P.?
I saw one of my friend’s transformations at U.P, and I knew straight away that I wanted to start my own. It took me six months before I signed up because I didn’t think I would be able to do it.
I thought it would be too hard for me because I was not used to training. But that wasn’t the case at all. I saw results in two or three weeks which was a fantastic feeling.
All the efforts and the sacrifices were worth it, and I noticed my plan was working, which really motivated me.
Now that you’ve completed your transformation, how do you feel about yourself?
I’m very proud because when I came to U.P., I just wanted to get my old body back. When I look back at old pictures of myself, I realise that I have become leaner than ever before.
That was a big achievement for me because I have never been in this shape in my entire life. I’ve also bumped into former colleagues who didn’t recognise me – even some of my family members didn’t.
I have some family who live in Paris, and I hadn’t seen them for a while. When they saw me, they were completely shocked, but in a good way! They’re also very proud of the progress I’ve made.
What would you say to people thinking about beginning their own body transformation with U.P.?
I would tell them to join. Honestly, it’s the best decision I have ever taken for my health. It’s a life-changing experience that has delivered not just physical changes, but also mental changes.
Now I train regularly, I have come to enjoy it. I have also changed my habits. I eat healthier, sleep better and most importantly I feel confident again. So, I would definitely recommend U.P. It’s the best place for the big personal achievements.
