Our Fat Burning Workouts, Diets & Exercises are based on a scientifically proven system that is so effective that it can be tailored to the goals of everyone – from elite athletes looking to rapidly shed off season weight, through to busy business people and parents with young children. It is a plan that aims to deliver maximum results in minimum time.
We have been fine tuning our Meltdown Fat Loss Regime for over fifteen years, and now have perfected it to the point that after 2 weeks of working with you we can tell you almost exactly how much body fat you should drop in the remaining 4 weeks – so long as you do what we ask of you!

The Science Behind Our Proven Fat Loss Program

  • Our own University research at such institutions as Cambridge University (Pharmacology)

  • Studying with the best coaches in the business such as Charles Poliquin

  • Incorporation of the BioSignature Modulation protocols

  • Decades of hands-on, in the trenches gym experience

  • Literally thousands of personal fitness training sessions

  • Rigorous scrutiny of hundreds of peer reviewed medical research papers

  • And most importantly of all our ongoing analysis of the results that UP produces with literally thousands of “body composition” focused Personal Training clients. Nowhere else in the world has this real-life Laboratory to fine tune and refine their fat loss processes.

“A LOT can change in 6 weeks! We are showing you our best results, we make no apologies for that because we want to put our best face forward, but most men between the ages of 20-45 can achieve a similar % change in just 6 weeks at UP if they focus their efforts on the right diet and correct three times per week weight training sessions.”*

Please note here that we write “body fat”, not body weight, as many clients actually lose fat and gain muscle on this programme. The average fat loss on our plan for a male client (females should visit our female fat loss page ) is 18lbs in 6 weeks! In real terms this is a staggering amount and can be a life changing – always life enhancing – experience.

This highly focused Fat Loss programme was devised by Nick Mitchell when he clocked that the athletic, lean and, let’s face it,
attractive physiques on both male and female athletes he trained at the University of London were those who were doing the explosive sports such as sprinting and jumping. These were people who avoided the traditional so called “fat burning” workouts of long distance, slow and steady cardio like the plague. Just think of the long, lean and muscular lines of a sprinter and then contrast that with the stringy, sometimes “skinny fat” look of the long distance runner.

The Latest Scientific Facts About Fat Loss Tell Us That:

Fact 1: More people go to the gym than ever before, yet they don’t seem to be in better shape. Why?! The fat loss workout programmes you read about in magazines and taught by run of the mill fitness instructors are often based on out-of-date exercise science and nutrition information.

Fact 2: Sports performance and conditioning science has developed at an unprecedented rate since the early 1990s. The latest fat loss research (which Meltdown is based on) means that you lose more fat more rapidly than ever before whilst keeping your hard-earned muscle and overall “tone”.

Fact 3: Spending countless hours on the stationary bike or treadmill is boring and a drain on your precious free time. It’s also counterproductive and detrimental to your body both hormonally (so you have less energy, less muscle, and more fat!) and from an injury perspective due to the over use of set movement patterns (repetitive strain).

Fact 4: The precise and highly focused nature of our Meltdown programme means that you continue to burn calories long after you have left the gym. Traditional workouts burn fat whilst you’re exercising, but as soon as you get off whatever cardio machine you are using your metabolism shifts back to normal. With the application of tried and scientifically tested systems we can guarantee that your metabolism stays elevated, and you therefore continue to burn body fat, for up to 38 hours after you have finished exercising! One of the things that all our clients comment upon after finishing their first Fat Burning workout is how for hours afterwards they feel as though they are “light on their feet”, “walking on clouds” and often “ravenously hungry”! All fantastic signs that the overall metabolism has been stimulated to a level that they have never experienced before!

Fact 5:Effective resistance training promotes fat loss, yet most trainers and their clients don’t even include it in their
programmes, or they do it by incorporating the long past its sell by date method of low weight and high repetitions. Sure, that’s good for developing muscular endurance, but it does very little for fat burning and metabolic shifting. With Meltdown, you will lift weights in such a fashion that you hold onto your muscle (1lb of muscle equals 50 calories a day – that soon adds up) whilst also stoking your metabolic furnace into overdrive!

To put it as bluntly as possible: these are the facts. The research has no hidden agenda and simply does not lie. The way you are currently being trained for fat loss is probably not only getting you less than satisfactory results, but may actually be causing muscle wastage and repetitive strain injuries.

As the Meltdown philosophy has evolved it has been refined to the extent that it is now a complete exercise and nutritional methodology that we KNOW will strip the body fat off those with even the slowest metabolism. We have such a strong reputation for this, and so we often get the clients that nobody else wants, those who have been everywhere and tried everything in an increasingly desperate attempt to be in decent shape for the first time in their lives.

Have these people who once considered themselves “no hopers” been pleased with their results on the Meltdown programme? Let’s put it this way, only one person has ever asked for their money back (and do please note that we can only give you the keys to fat loss and unlock the door, but we can’t make you walk through it if you are inconsistent and have more excuses than a pregnant nun! We need you to try as hard as we do – radical fat loss is a team effort all the way). Other than that one aberration all our clients are more than happy.

Our Meltdown plan is a six week intensive fat loss programme which consists of:

Initial Assessment & BioSignature Consultation

BioSignature is the fastest way to burning fat and get lean because it is tailored to your own unique body fat and hormonal composition. Suffice to say that every client who enrolls for our Fat Loss / Fat Burning Programme has the opportunity to benefit from this groundbreaking protocol and modulate their exercise, nutrition and supplementation around their own unique hormonal profile!

In addition to the BioSignature readings, the initial assessment consists of a health and fitness questionnaire where we learn not just the hard facts of your previous exercise experience and medical history, but also seek to understand exactly how we can structure our Fat Loss system to best fit around your lifestyle. Remember this is a strict methodology that we follow in a bespoke fashion to your own unique circumstances.

We also undertake an extensive body composition analysis whereby we calculate body fat percentages and take height / weight / relevant body part measurements.
Structural, postural, and muscular balance testing – where are your weaknesses / strengths and how can they be addressed for a healthy, functional and injury free body.
Developed by the one of the world’s best known physical therapists Gray Cook, this consists of a functional movement screen with the following tests:

  • Deep Overhead Squat
  • Hurdle Step
  • In-Line Lunge
  • Active Straight Leg Raise
  • Seated Rotation

We also test you on several key major resistance exercises in order to assess the structural balance of key supporting musculature such as the rotator cuff. This is to ensure the long term integrity of your body’s muscles and soft tissue, keeping you healthy and active, and not on the physiotherapy table!

“A better body isn’t all about being leaner or more “attractive”. It is about moving better, having fewer (or no!) aches and pains, and being healthier.”*

Nutritional Consultation and Audit

You must keep a food diary of exactly what is consumed during a so-called “regular” week. This way we can accurately conduct a full-scale audit of dietary habits and make positive changes that are particular to how you eat, rather than making sweeping statements that apply generally, but not necessarily to you specifically.

Our Fat Loss / Fat Burning Programmes have very strict nutritional protocols that are made to fit around your own needs and lifestyle, not the other way around! Our clients all receive highly personalised dietary programmes that break down exactly how you should eat for each individual day of your 42 day programme. Why do we go into such minute detail?

The answer is simple – we like to be able to accurately tell you what you can expect from your six-week commitment to us. We simply do not believe in leaving anything to chance.
Depending upon your exact goals, we also map out a full-scale supplementation programme that includes every possible permutation of what food supplements you can take to enhance your progress.

“This startling photo represents the extreme end of what we can do at UP. We post it here as an inspirational example and not as something that we feel most potential clients would want to emulate as the 15 week training regime was extraordinarily intense. “*

Fat Loss Exercise Programme Design

On the basis of the data gathered by our initial consultations we then construct a unique, personalised Fat Loss programme based on the Meltdown principles. This is a six-week plan that is designed to evolve as your own conditioning improves and will see you burning fat and stoking up your metabolism right from the very first workout.
We also take into account the information gathered during the physical assessments, and construct a plan that takes into account any pre existing or potential structural and muscular imbalances, addressing weaknesses head on and eliminating them with the application of modern sports science programme design.

Training Sessions

You will meet with your personal trainer three times a week for six weeks in order to perform your Meltdown training. In addition we will be asking you to put in a further two to three half hour workouts at home or in the gym every week.

We pay extremely close attention to everything that you do when exercising with us, always monitoring your form, your fitness and your progress, and view the “in the gym” part of our service as being a combination of motivator, educator, statistician and task master! We are absolutely obsessed with maximising the time you spend in the gym, and will work you hard.

“Here’s a 10 week result with a man who tried multiple personal trainers before coming to UP. Take a photo of yourself from the rear to see if you look like the before…What we do isn’t magic and most of the time it isn’t overly complicated. But it is always tailored to YOU and it is always done with the culture and expectation that our client gets maximum results in minimum time.”*

What we expect from you
We are very proud of Meltdown’s reputation, and Nick Mitchell will do nothing to compromise his reputation as a world renowned fat loss expert. Unlike most personal trainers who will take on any client, no matter how wavering their commitment, we are very particular about who we take on as a client. To this extent there are certain conditions that we demand each client agrees to before embarking on the six week Meltdown programme for fat loss:

  • Make the time to train with us three times a week. We are willing to work at any time of the day or night, and will even open the gym at 4am if you ask us very nicely! There are always legitimate reasons not to exercise, but we will not accept if you can’t find the time for a six-week period which, relative to your entire life-span, is a tiny amount of time.

  • Give up alcohol, wheat and processed foods for at least the first 14 days of the Meltdown programme.

  • Accept that you must follow the 90/10 rule. 90% of what you do from exercise to food intake must be EXACTLY as we tell you. The other 10% we leave to your conscience.

  • Give 100% effort throughout the programme and maintain a positive approach at all times. Burning fat isn’t a walk in the park, but if you embrace it wholeheartedly you will have an enjoyable, energising, and wholly rewarding experience.

These are the things that we expect of you. If they sound too challenging, then we’re sorry but perhaps Meltdown isn’t for you.

“We promote a message of serious training and we make no apologies for that. UP-like results take hard work and discipline. But we like to have fun too, and we think the smile on this client’s face, after dropping 11% body fat in exactly 11 weeks, says it all. Results are just a step away…”*
