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!
Zoe Duchesne, Victoria’s Secrets model
Nick Mitchell is the best personal trainer that Europe has to offer. His depth of experience keeps him at the forefront of the industry and I have no hesitation in referring anyone visiting the UK to be trained under his watchful experienced eye.

The fact that my forty-year old frame graced the cover of Men’s Health is down to Nick Mitchell's encyclopaedic knowledge and no-nonsense training techniques. He’s the go-to guy if you want results.

On my trips to London I have found Sav and the Ultimate Performance team to be the only guys in Europe who can give me what I need – a great place to train, fantastic cutting edge advice, and an insight into competitive sports that only comes from years of coaching experience at the highest level.

Craig Fitzgibbon, Australian National Rugby League Team
It is thanks to Nick Mitchell’s expertise, understanding and patience, that I am healthier, fitter and leaner than I was 10 years ago. He taught me that it’s not enough to love the body we’re in but to respect it too.

I have worked with Kosta for many years and the best compliment I can pay to him is that at the end of our professional partnership we became friends. He is constantly challenging me with through new ideas, care and excellent interpersonal skills.

Nick Mitchell is a pleasure to work with. Not only is he full of knowledge but he puts it over in a way that is understandable and practical for everyday people. He obviously has a real passion for everything muscle and fitness and his training methods and the gym atmosphere portrays this.

Thanks to Ultimate Performance my filming of the BBC TV show "Hustle" went incredibly well and the producers were overjoyed with the outcome

Anyone who trains at Ultimate Performance can be assured of some proper training, which requires effort to reach their goals and not fobbed off with a watered down session and a gossip as with every other personal training gym I have seen!!!

How to get here:
UP Mayfair is located on the corner of Park Street and South Street.
Nearest tube stations:
“We have always been very lucky, or worked very hard and well, in that we have received very few complaints from our clients over the years. We are not a business that aims to please all the people all of the time, quite the contrary as we want to inspire strong feelings and know that we have a very specific “results oriented” audience, so there was only ever one consistent complaint that we have struggled to adequately address. That problem had been our location.
For our personal training clients who live / work near the City of London, our Liverpool Street based private gym, the largest of its kind in London, was ideal. But we are not a business built on the convenience of our location and a significant number of our clients travelled from West and Central London to work with us, despite the fact that there are literally thousands of personal trainers based on their doorsteps. We know that they appreciated the fact that sacrifices have to be made to access the best, but we also aimed to make it as easy as possible to reach us, and naturally we wanted to continue to grow our business as our ability to achieve results for our clients has directly translated into Ultimate Performance being the most rapidly growing personal training business in the UK.
From this desire was born UP Mayfair, and with it we had the imagination and investment to create the most unique personal training space in central London. Decent gyms in this part of London are scarcer than an honest politician in Westminster, and we needed something that could stand as a flagship location and, to be blunt, blow the socks off everybody else. Take a look at what we have done via the images on this page, and you’ll appreciate why world renowned Olympic Strength & Conditioning Coach Charles Poliquin has called it “the only gym in Europe if you are really serious about your results”, and Men’s Fitness said “a gym that represents a paradigm in results focused exercise”.
