Nick Mitchell was recommended to me by Men's Health magazine as the best personal trainer in the UK to get me cover model ready, and after only 5 minutes with him I understood why. He is a fantastic person to help get anyone into the best shape of their lives and his knowledge of the human body blows me away!
I rely on UP ahead of big photo shoots to always help me be in the kind of physical shape that the clients demand. In my industry we must always be as close to perfection as possible and no one understands the way to fine tune a woman’s body like them!

It’s been a decade now since I began my life as a Personal Trainer. And about 2 or 3 years longer than that since I started hanging out in gyms and around ‘fitness people’. I’ve worked with clients of just about every fitness level you can imagine – from those who could barely walk from [...]

EXERCISE AND FITNESS TITLE:The Poliquin Principles AUTHOR: Charles Poliquin If there is just one author whom I could endorse for intelligent prose and interesting ideas on exercise protocols, then it has to be Coach Poliquin.
