Read in his own words how Mickael went from overweight and feeling unhealthy to lean and in-control of his life and body.
Where to begin… I don’t really know. Since my early age, I’ve always been a big person. At age 14, I was 133 kg. Coming from Brittany, France, a large family, my mother was always making sure that I was well fed. My mother would not allow me to leave the table if i didn’t finished my plate.
I am a very gourmet person and that is the main reason that i chose to become a chef. But with this work rhythm, it is very difficult to find a balance between life and work. In this industry, we very often give everything to our work and I have neglected my health. I have tried several diet program such as Dr Ducan method but none of them was really working.
When I started working at a five-star Hotel, I decided to have a better work life balance. My weight was 152kg and I was having some difficulties breathing during the night and heart pain during stressful moments at work. I decided to start exercising at the gym on a regular basis. I managed to burn off a few kilograms by doing mostly cardio exercise.
However the skin, particularly on the belly, started to hang a bit. I was in need of a proper program to increase my muscular masse. I decided to take a private trainer. The first coaches I found it was a loss of time and it was very un-effective and the results were not here. At that point, I was very skeptical about getting another coach due to the previous experiences.
I first noticed the Ultimate Performance program through an ad on Facebook. I decided to give myself a last chance to give it a try.
“My first impression of my Personal Trainer Russell Lee was he was very fit and seemed more to know what they were doing. It was very professional and organised. He was always honest and realistic with what he could accomplish with me. He did not hard-sell and oversell the results as other coaches had done before. He said that he could help me reduce the body fat but he wasn’t a magician. He said we will try our best to contain the skin hanging on the belly but he warned me that the skin will hang anyway. He also explained the training was one thing but 85% of the program is the diet that he designed for me. It was the first time that a coach was that honest with me, while it wasn’t maybe what I wanted to hear, at least he was honest with me and that was a perfect beginning to the program.”
“My training program length was 12 weeks. When I began the training with Russell, my weight was 107kg and 21.8% body fat. Every day, he was carefully monitoring what I eat and how long I exercise my cardio. We also do a weekly body fat check and the waist size, every single week there was an improvement. He also provided me with very strong moral support during the program which was very needed some weeks into the program. I am now 88kg with a body fat that is under 11%. I am very happy to have found Russell and I would highly recommend him and Ultimate Performance gym for anyone who is ready to change their lifestyle and get back into shape like me!”
