Company History

As featured in

The World’s Leading Personal Trainers, Since 2009.

Ultimate Performance was founded in 2009 by Nick Mitchell, widely regarded as one of the world’s foremost personal trainers and body composition experts.

The business was born from Nick’s vision to create a place where people knew they could train and get the results they wanted, and not the ineffectual ‘fitness fluff’ that pervaded the U.K. personal training industry at that time.

Since then, Ultimate Performance has changed the face of the industry and rapidly expanded to become the world’s only truly global personal training business, operating across four continents.

Now Ultimate Performance has a team of more than 300 elite personal trainers across 18 gyms, helping thousands of clients achieve life-changing results.

The following timeline outlines the Ultimate Performance company history as we continue our expansion across North America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Australasia.
