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!

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.

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!!!
Dave “Bulldog” Beattie, World Powerlifting Champion, Trainer of Strongest Man in the World.
I am extremely lucky to of had such a wonderful and respected teacher as Kostas Stavrev to help with all my physical requirements. He is a fantastic source of encouragement; is intelligent, detailed and motivating and I continually seek his advice and expertise on all athletic issues.
Perry Suckling, Tottenham Hotspur Goalkeeping Coach
Ultimate Performance offers the highest level of personal training available. Each one of our trainers is distinguished by their ability to put into practice everything that they teach – talking the talk is only hot air if you can’t also walk the walk. We require that every trainer has a minimum of 5,000 hours of hands on, practical experience and holds at least one certification from a leading training organisation such as the National Strength and Conditioning Association (of America) or the National Academy of Sports Medicine (USA). In addition to this a number of our staff are current or former professional sportspeople / coaches of world class athletes who know every inside trick for extracting the very best performance from their clients.
Our commitment to the science of strength, conditioning, and athletic training and our insistence on assembling a team that covers all exercise and nutritional paradigms means that all our clients’ needs are met with unparalleled excellence. You may have seen us on TV, or read about us in our regular features in magazines such as Men’s Health or Men’s Fitness, but the true benchmark of our success and credibility as personal trainers is in the transformations and results we achieve for our clients.
Our team of personal trainers are available at our two world class private facilities (UP City and UP Mayfair) in the City of London and the heart of Mayfair in Central London. Both gyms are award winning establishments that have been hailed as the best in class and have hosted Olympic athletes, fitness models, and a bewildering array of weekend warriors and regular, professional people seeking that something “special” that is absent from both bog box commercial gyms, and small, ill-equipped and sterile personal training studios.
