But with four months until her wedding, Sarah wasn’t happy with the shape she was in and wanted to make a big change.
Sarah says she didn’t feel good in her clothes and her diet was making her feel tired, lethargic and bloated.
But the change she wanted began almost instantaneously when she started her personal training programme with Ultimate Performance.
Just 16 weeks later, Sarah completed a stunning transformation in time for her big day walking down the aisle.
“Before my transformation, I was a petite, ‘skinny fat Asian’ that hid my weight well,” she says.
“Now I look toned, fit and healthy – it is truly the best shape I’ve ever been in and I never thought I’d ever see my abs!”
She lost almost 10kg in weight and shed more than a third of her body fat during her UP training programme.
The biggest thing for Sarah has been the education she received at UP on the nutrition and training that works best for her body to stay in shape for life.
Sarah shares the biggest diet tips she learned and explains how she got in the best shape of her life in 16 weeks ready for her wedding…
“I didn’t have any expectations to be honest, and commenced training with an open mind.
“I’ve had other personal trainers at boutique gyms in the past where I’ve achieved some short-term results, and I didn’t expect this to be any different.
“I was getting married in four months which gave me a great target to work towards, but in general, I just wanted to be and feel healthier.
“Tired, lethargic and generally unsatisfied with how I felt in my clothes.”
“I thought I was healthy! But really, I would eat relatively healthy during the week, but, come the weekend it was filled with junk food and alcohol.”
“I’m Chinese and love Asian cuisine – noodles, roast pork, roast duck. Essentially, I ate whatever I craved at the time, and I felt quite bloated after most meals.”
“I became much more mindful of what I was eating and started to make better food choices.
“I also started to want to make better choices and craving healthier options!
“As well as changing what I ate, I also changed the number of meals I had each day, the time of day I was eating, and cut out the snacks between meals.”
“I just felt amazing! My skin cleared, I was visibly less ‘puffy’ and felt much more energetic and confident. I was very surprised at how quickly I started to feel different.”
“The training was tough, and I must be honest – going to the gym after work on a Friday when my friends were out drinking was difficult at first.
“But, I loved that my trainer Reid taught me why we were doing the exercises and which combination of exercises were best.
“I felt stronger with each session, really looked forward to the training and the results were motivation enough!”
“You need to make compromises; it takes hard work to get results and diet/nutrition is just as important as working out if you want to achieve your goals.”
“I’ve learnt how my body responds to different types of exercise and food.”
I would (and do!) recommend UP to everyone who really wants to make a change in their life.
UP, and in particular my trainer, were really supportive throughout, they created a plan that was perfect for my goals and they helped me every step of the way to achieve them.
I have never achieved anything close to the results I had over the last few months!
