30-year-old supply chain manager Shamira had been training for nine years, but not lost a single pound of weight.
Working for a cosmetics firm, she was surrounded by confident, well-dressed professionals who she naturally compared herself to.
Shamira’s recent weight gain left her feeling old, and she began to think her body wouldn’t respond to any kind of training. But when she noticed the rapid progress of her husband, who was working with Ultimate Performance, she was desperate to find out more.
Now Shamira has shed an eye-catching 12kg and is thrilled with what she’s achieved with her own U.P. trainer.
More focused at work, confident to speak to new people and empowered as a mother, Shamira feels she looks much younger again – all thanks to her program that slotted right into her work-life.
“I have been working out for more than nine years now and never lost any weight.
“I’m proud that I now feel confident about my body. My husband and daughter say I look amazing.
“I’ve achieved more than just a weight loss; I now understand my body.
“With U.P. you save time and have someone to support you the whole way. You will get the results you want if you give it 100%.”
Here, Shamira talks about how she’s more comfortable at work, how she learned to conquer her cravings, and why U.P.’s methods will ‘100% get you results’ if you commit to your plan.
What was your motivation to partner with U.P.?
I was inspired by my husband. He came to U.P. and completely transformed his body, but he’s also maintained it for over a year. I used to feel very old in front of him and thought I shouldn’t look like this at my age. Working for a cosmetics firm, I’m surrounded by people who are well dressed and confident in their appearance. I wasn’t confident talking to people.
Had you tried to lose weight in the past?
I have been working out for more than nine years now and never lost any weight. If I did, I’d lose one or two kilos of water weight which would come back straight away.
So, I felt like I was ‘spending something’ putting effort into losing weight, but I was not getting a return on investment. My body just didn’t react to anything I did.
When I saw my husband’s progress, I said to myself “U.P. is the place.” Everyone at U.P. understood what I wanted and based my program around my daily routine, which involved caring for my family. My trainer tailored my plan around me, motivating me to commit to my transformation.
What challenges did you face during your transformation?
During my period, my weight would fluctuate, and I would have mood swings and cravings. If my trainer wasn’t with me, I wouldn’t have coped as well. Whenever I had an issue, I was open with her and explained my problem and she’d always give me a solution. She would calm me down and tell me what was best to do. I started to understand my body a lot more and realised how important it was to be consistent.
How has your transformation changed your life?
Before I came to U.P., I was fat, lazy and a ‘foodie’. Everywhere I went, I used to eat whatever I could. Now, I feel like I look much younger and a lot more beautiful. I’m proud that I now feel confident about my body. My husband and daughter say I look amazing.
How did you feel when you saw your before and after result pictures for the first time?
I was completely shocked. I couldn’t believe it had happened. My trainer set me a target weight to achieve, so I was focused on that – I completely forgot how my body would change. When I saw my ‘after’ photo, I realised how far I’d come.
Would you recommend U.P. to those who want to make a change to their body?
Definitely. I owe everything to U.P. As I said, I’ve been training for the past nine years but there was no return on investment. With U.P. you save time and have someone to support you the whole way.
You will get the results you want if you give it 100%. I would always give 100% training on my own, but it was difficult to know what I was doing wrong.
Everyone at U.P. knows what they’re doing – the trainers are exceptional. I’ve achieved more than just a weight loss; I now understand my body.
I’m 30 years old, and I’ve discovered a version my myself that I’d never found in the past 30 years. It’s helped me in my professional career too – I’m now giving my body the proper nutrition which is helping me mentally.
