Congratulations to Paul of UP Sydney, who is our Global Client of the Month!
Paul achieved a six-pack and his dream body in just 10 weeks of training with Ultimate Performance.
Business owner Paul had been leading the life of a typical busy executive, over-worked and highly stressed.
But it’s incredible how much can change in 10 weeks with UP.
“I feel so much better about my body, health and state of mind,” he says.
Paul’s work ethic and commitment throughout the 10 weeks saw him achieve Global Client of the Month status for September.
Read on below for the full testimonial of his 10-week programme, and how it changed it his outlook on his training, and his life.
What were your expectations going into the programme and what were your motivations?
“To get the right diet plan and body transformation program.
Based on the body transformation before and after pictures that you see from Ultimate Performance I had very high expectations.
I expected to lose weight, get a 6 pack and put on muscle size. My main motivation was to get a shredded body to be honest but as I went through the program I was educated on micro nutrients and nutrition by my trainer Mark.”
Can you tell me how you were feeling both physically and mentally before starting with UP?
“Physically I didn’t feel strong, I thought I looked okay but I obviously wasn’t happy with my body physically. However mentally I was tired, lacked the energy and that fire in my belly.
Very stressed with running my business, tired and a bit drained or flat.”
What was your diet and lifestyle like before you started your transformation with UP?
“I thought it was good. 18 months ago I gave up alcohol for good, and it was a huge change in my life and one I should have done years ago. This decision giving up booze had a dramatic effect on my lifestyle and overall health, however I always knew that if I could find the answers on the right diet for me personally that would have another dramatic impact on my health and lifestyle.
I turned to UP to get the education. If you Google diet than you get all diet plans that are not specific to your body type, your body transformation goals, your health and your specific lifestyle.
My trainer took all that vital information and designed a specific nutrition plan to ensure that it complemented my goals.
After only a couple of weeks into the program I realised it [my previous diet] was very poor, not planned, not organised and never measured. Once I learnt about micro nutrients, and being an all or nothing guy, I really stuck to my plan that my trainer set out for me. My lifestyle is very full on; it’s never calm. I am married with two young children, and started my own business from the ground up and that takes a serious amount of hard work, late nights, worry and stress.”
How did your diet and lifestyle change when you started your transformation with UP?
After two weeks coming off carbs and operating off a high good-fats diet I found I had much more energy. Longer lasting anyway.
I have excelled in work, and I feel much more focussed and not as tired.
I have the fire back in my belly which is only a positive for me. As a husband, father and leader I give more.
I am not as tired as I was before the transformation and ultimately, I feel so much better about my body, health and state of mind.
What effect did this have on your health, performance, lifestyle and energy inside and outside the gym?
Health is wealth.
Once I started seeing the results you start to feel good, feel healthier, perform better, and become more disciplined about what you put into your body. Which can only be a positive obviously.
How did you find the training and did it fit around your busy lifestyle?
Easy, perfect in fact.
Monday, Wednesday and Friday, I was [previously] spending two hours in the gym and only doing a fraction of what you get through in the transformation workouts.
What were your results like after your transformation?
“It’s cliché, but I was amazed what my trainer achieved with me in only a 10-week period, I was amazed.
I loved my results and still do. It’s the discipline in diet and workouts that I now know I enjoy. I like routine, and I like being disciplined and healthy.
I love feeling in shape, strong and healthy.
My trainer was awesome through it all, always pushing in the right way. The guy is phenomenal with knowing what to do and how to do it, and his nutrition knowledge is outstanding. Obviously I couldn’t have done this without his plan, knowledge and motivational support.”
What were the most important things you learned during your journey and what really worked for you in helping you make your transformation?
Diet is key, as are micro nutrients. Be strict, be consistent and listen to exactly what your trainer tells you do. The trainer is the expert.
I was told what I could achieve in the 10 weeks, and I honestly didn’t think that was possible. I was 15.5% body fat, and then was around 8% in a 10-week period.
No abs, 10 weeks later, abs.

All September Client’s of the Month Can be Seen Below
Norman – UP Singapore
Like so many busy executives, Norman was worried that his results would be hampered by all the travel that he has to do for work.
Fortunately for Norman, personal trainers at UP are fully versed in how to handle the difficulties of staying on track while living out of suitcases and eating airplane food!
What was the obstacle that would have prevented you from starting the process?
Personally, my biggest hurdle to starting — or committing to a training and diet program — is the concern that I won’t be in town very often. With fashion weeks and press trips, staying consistent with exercise has always been an issue.
Would you recommend UP? If so, why?
Definitely. Throughout the 12 weeks, as my friends and colleagues witnessed my gradual transformation, they were constantly asking me whether I recommend UP. 100 per cent.
It really introduced discipline and self-care back into my daily life. Besides looking good, I feel strong, lean and healthy. Everything is firing on all cylinders, and I have a renewed sense of alertness.
Mags – UP Mayfair
London radiographer Mags lost a stunning 42lbs in 16 weeks working with Ultimate Performance.
The 48-year-old’s transformation is a paragon of how diet and exercise can truly change your life.
Mags, who works gruelling shifts in healthcare, had been living off cake, sugar and caffeine for years.
She says she was on a ‘merry-go-round of physical and mental exhaustion’ and was constantly falling ill and struggling to overcome it.
But after just 16 weeks and 42lb weight loss later, the Londoner looks and feels like a different person.
Mags says she’s gone from the person who ate cake for breakfast, to the person who everyone comes to for fitness and weight loss advice.
Her lifestyle, her health and her body have all been completely transformed – she has learned how to train weights for fat loss, how to control her diet for optimum body composition and how to stay in shape for life.
Mags explains how she made such a stunning transformation and what she has learned during her 16 weeks at UP…
Would you recommend UP and why?
Yes, I would recommend UP not just because of the massive transformation I have achieved, but because at no time did I feel unsupported or left on my own to get on with it.
And because I am still learning about how to manage and maintain the weight loss, which I know I would never have been able to do on my own.
Marc – UP Manchester
When you’re motivated by the challenge of getting in shape, nothing will stand in the way of your goal.
Manchester solicitor Marc wanted to shake off the ‘skinny fat’ body that had crept up on him during his 30s and finally get the body he wanted.
But he also had the goal of getting fit and strong again to represent Great Britain’s football team in the Maccabiah Games.
Despite a hamstring injury two weeks in, Marc achieved both goals, forging an incredible physique and getting in the shape of his life to play in a football tournament in Israel.
The results Marc achieved alongside his UP personal trainer speak for themselves…
It took just 12 weeks for Marc to build his athletic new physique and shred layers of body fat off to look incredible at 38.
The 12-week transformation programme was all that Marc needed to motivate him to get fit, and the round-the-clock guidance from his PT helped guide him to his goal.
Marc says he’s stronger, fitter and leaner than ever. But it’s not just physical strength, his mental strength has improved too and he feels more alert and energised every day. The powerful combination of his new diet and bespoke training plan has revolutionised the way he looks and feels.
“I’ve never looked anywhere near as good and never felt so energised,” he says.
“UP has given me an insight into just what can be achieved if I put my mind to it. It has given me the confidence to believe that I can be bigger, better and stronger.”
Haroon – UP Dubai
Don’t wait 10 years for the changes you want to see right now!
Haroon made huge changes in just 12 weeks that he had struggled to achieve on his own in a decade.
Weight loss of 11kg and the leanest and most muscular physique he has ever had were just the start.
Office worker Haroon took control of his diet and absorbed knowledge about nutrition that will keep him in shape for life.
Gone is the lethargy and afternoon energy crashes that are common among office professionals and stifle productivity.
Years of chronic back pain from a herniated disc has been alleviated and he is now able to live and train pain-free – all after just 12 weeks with his UP personal trainer.
“I am 11kg lighter and have dropped 11% body fat in this time. Amazing progress, which I could not have imagined when I started.”
“UP training is nothing like I have experienced before. You learn the value of UP’s trainers compared to the typical trainers you find at commercial gyms – there is no comparison.”
“With UP You are pushed to your maximum limit every time you train and you train the right way.”
Haroon’s story is typical of so many office workers – endless hours behind a desk working and eating meals-on-the-go.
He had trained for years on his own in a commercial gym but had never achieved the results he wanted.
“I always thought I was relatively fit and active having been a regular commercial gym goer for the past 10 years.”
Timothy – UP Hong Kong Central
Client of the Month Timothy says consistency, discipline and finding the right mentor that helps you push you to your limits are the key factors to a body transformation.
Just a couple of months ago, he looked at himself in the mirror and couldn’t help but feel sorry for himself – he had completely neglected his body and health.
With the knee injury he had several years back, he was not able to find a way to keep up on weight control and fitness.
He knew something needed to be done in order for him to enjoy life to the full again.
Would you recommend UP and why?
100% yes. But only to those who are fully committed. The reason is simple – it’s result-focused, and what you learn and get out of the programme is of life-long benefit.
After 18 weeks of hard work, absolute focus and smart training, I am very proud to say that joining UP was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Of course the body transformation is rewarding, but what’s more important is the extensive nutrition knowledge I’ve learnt, and finding the right balance which will allow me to carry on with this healthier and happier lifestyle going forward.
Now that I have developed stronger muscles and a stronger knee, I’m able to enjoy all the sports I have missed out on. For those of you who are on the same path, remember: attitude is everything. It’s down to how much you want it. Good luck.
Tim – UP London City
Yo-Yo dieting is something so many of us struggle with.
Tim was the same before he started his UP body transformation. The financial journalist was the classic yo-yo dieter. Going on a health push, losing weight, getting in better shape, then letting it slip and piling it all back on, and more.
He would rebound with pizza, pasta, bread and wine and would sometimes put back on 5, 10 or even 20kg.
But his 12-week transformation has changed all that. Tim’s bespoke diet and training plan at UP saw body fat melt off him – in a matter of two weeks he had already shed almost 7kg.
His weight dropped by 14.4kg and his body fat went from 17% to a super-lean 9% in a matter of 12 weeks to get him in the best shape of his life.
Tim says the best part of his transformation was seeing the results coming every week, seeing his strength go up and his body fat going down consistently.
“I’ve not had one week where I’ve looked and thought I’ve gone backwards. Every single week I’ve had progress and that has kept me motivated for the following week.”
But the most powerful thing Tim has taken from the process is the knowledge on nutrition and training to maintain his lean and athletic new body.
Tim says he now has the tools to control his diet and not go back to his yo-yo dieting ways.
“I feel clean, I feel healthier and my skin is better. I sleep better. It’s indisputably made me a hell of a lot healthier.
“I’m eating more greens than I’ve ever done in my whole life. I’m steaming plenty of broccoli and I’ll now continue to do that. It took me until my thirties, but I’m finally eating a lot of greens.”
Remco – UP Amsterdam
Feeling tired, unfit and overweight was something that Remco was noticing more and more before he came to UP.
Short walks and jobs around the house would leave him out of breath and just wanting to lie on the sofa – he knew he needed to get in shape.
But after just 12 weeks at Ultimate Performance Remco is fitter, stronger and leaner than he could ever have imagined.
What started with a modest goal finished 12 weeks later with impressive weight loss and a new muscular physique.
Remco now says he has more energy than ever before and is happy with his new active lifestyle.
Working with UP has shown the huge difference weight training and proper nutrition can make to your health, your body and your fitness levels.
Remco’s efforts in the gym toward his 12-week transformation have seen him earn the status of UP Client of the Month for September.
Would you recommend UP and why?
Absolutely, the dedication of my trainer combined with the excellent gym itself was a great experience.
If you are looking for an exercise program which will produce results in a relatively short time then UP should be your choice.
