Just take a look at 51-year-old Stewart’s physique nearly two years after starting at UP and you have your answer.
Stewart has gone from strength to strength after his initial 15-week transformation at UP and now he’s in better shape than ever.
Nothing about UP is a crash diet or a quick fix and Stewart explains the key lessons and habits on training, fat loss and nutrition he has developed that have helped him build an even more impressive body…
Looking back to 20 months ago it is funny to think that I just wanted to feel comfortable in a pair of shorts and get what I referred to as my ‘old corpse’ into shape.
I was shocked with what I achieved with my trainer Harry in that short time span. I didn’t have a huge amount of fat to lose (I was ‘skinny fat’ then) somewhere around 5-6 kg but the way my body changed was astonishing.
I didn’t expect my body to respond so readily, and developing the amount of muscle in such a short timescale took me quite a while to adjust to in terms of body image. If I had been promised those results at the beginning I would have walked away in disbelief. I cannot describe the positive impact training has had on my levels of self-esteem and happiness.
I believe all of these are attributable to Nick Mitchell, but they are messages that have stayed with me:
I gave up smoking when I started at UP. I used to smoke 30 to 40 a day.
I rarely drink alcohol. I used to drink at least half a bottle of wine every day and double on the weekends plus spirits when going out. I have a drink only on special occasions now.
I eat well. I train regularly and most importantly enjoy it.
I regularly train four times a week and often five for about an hour or so each time. I stick to the “eat off the land” rule and quite honestly can’t imagine eating most of the crap I used to.
I don’t deny myself something if I really want it but when I have a treat it is something I really want not just a craving – I can never say no to good Stracciatella gelato!
Aiming to continue to improve my body, there are areas that I am not entirely happy with and some that need more work to bring them into balance with the rest.
I am always aiming to get stronger. It is an ongoing project with movable goalposts.
I see every bit of work now as an investment in my future. I’ve recently had a few weeks back training at UP Mayfair, getting lean again in preparation for a photoshoot.
I took part in a photoshoot after my first transformation so it’s been interesting to compare the two sets of pictures and see the differences. It’s also been a great opportunity to review my progress to date and make plans for the coming year.
It feels great I can’t fully explain the difference I feel. I feel not just physically stronger but stronger in life as well.
This lifestyle has rekindled my ambition in other areas and given me renewed enthusiasm and optimism about the future.
UP will give you the results, knowledge and understanding; you have to be accountable for how you use them.
Sure, you could treat this as a quick short-term fix if you wanted to but why would you want to revert to your old lifestyle after investing so much.
You need to realise that this is not a short trip to the next village, this is like emigrating!
