UP Client of the Month Sarah Slims Down and Gets Lean
by UP Fitness August 30, 2017
When it comes to your wedding day, you want to look and feel great.
But as she was planning her wedding, Sarah says she felt tired, lethargic and unhappy with her physical appearance.
Sarah wanted to change all that and seeing the hundreds of incredible transformations achieved at Ultimate Performance, she knew this was the place to do it.
Eleven short weeks is all it took for teacher Sarah to sculpt the body she wanted and change the way she felt about her appearance.
Now she is in control of her diet and her sweet tooth, feels fitter and stronger than ever, and equipped to stay in shape long after her wedding day.
What were your expectations going into the programme and what were your motivations?
I knew that the programme was going to be tough. I could see from the promotional material that the transformations people made were amazing and that there would surely be lots of blood, sweat and tears involved!
Can you tell me how you were feeling both physically and mentally before starting with UP?
Before starting at UP, I felt tired, lethargic and unhappy with my physical appearance. I knew a change needed to be made and I needed help to get kick started.
What was your diet and lifestyle like before you started your transformation with UP?
Living in Singapore, my lifestyle is very social, often involving eating and drinking out. I have always gone to the gym 3/4 times a week but my diet and sweet tooth lets me down.
How did your diet and lifestyle change when you started your transformation with UP?
Training with UP demands a lifestyle change. My eyes were opened to a new way of eating and drinking. Your lifestyle has to shift to fit around your health rather than yourhealth fitting around your social calendar.
What effect did this have on your health, performance, lifestyle and energy inside and outside the gym?
My performance in the gym increased tenfold. By doing more weight training my cardio fitness increased and I was enjoying exercising so much more. Feeling stronger and fitter was addictive. At first, it was tough outside the gym, with regards to meeting friends for lunch, dinner and special occasions but as you gain more support from your loved ones and as they become used to the changes you have made, it becomes part of a normal routine and your new lifestyle.
How did you find the training and did it fit around your busy lifestyle?
It is hard work. There are no other words. You have to be prepared, plan out your meals and make time to cook clean, healthy meals. Training schedules have to come first, but my trainer was flexible and happy to help make sure all my sessions fit around my work schedule.
What were your results like after your transformation?
I was very happy with my results. I was most pleased with the transformation in my back, shoulders and arms. My stomach is always going to be an ongoing area that I have to consistently work on.
What were the most important things you learned during your journey and what really worked for you in helping you make your transformation?
The biggest lesson I learned was how much your diet affects the results you can achieve. It was super tough but you can really see the benefits of the exercise when you stick rigidly to the diet.
How has doing this transformation changed you and do you think it will benefit you going forward?
It has dramatically changed how I eat, how I think about food and my knowledge of how different foods affect my body. It has also shown me how much I can actually accomplish in the gym, proving that I can set my goals much higher than I ever thought before. Moving forward, I will not be able to revert back to my old habits knowing how good it feels now.
Would you recommend UP and why?
I would 100% recommend UP. I would say how hard it is but how if you really put in the work the benefits and transformation you will feel outweigh it all.
