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.

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!!!

As great as our higher profile testimonials may be, we feel that we needed to go one better and draw upon what is essentially the bread and butter of our business – real results for real people.
Working with industry professionals and people who make their living out of the way that they look / perform isn’t always the most applicable experience for what our everyday clients need. Ultimate Performance is the busiest serious personal training team in Europe, and our expertise and credentials have been built on helping people with stressful jobs and busy lives achieve their own optimal health, fitness, and body composition goals. Our job is to create the ideal programmes and protocols that fit around our clients’ lifestyles and commitment levels, not vice versa.
In this section we have some fantastic physical transformation photos and testimonials from clients whose lives, health and confidence have changed beyond measure thanks to our coaching and their own dedication and hard work. You will notice there are a few more male photos than female, rest assured we work hard on perfecting the female form too it is just our female clients are a little shyer about showing off in comparison to the men!
Have a good look at how we have helped real people to achieve and don’t be afraid to contact us if you think you have got it in you to take similar life changing action!
Our results and endorsements speak for themselves and are unparalleled in the personal training industry. We are the personal trainers of choice for those who need to look and perform at their very best.
These are grand claims but ones that are referenced by our testimonials page. No other London personal training firm has the backing of such a diverse range of industry insiders, with personal endorsements from Olympic athletes, top international sportsmen, and professional bodybuilders; catwalk divas and fitness magazine cover models; experienced health & fitness journalists and main editors; actors and pop stars; and world class coaches and the array of personal trainers who have studied under our tutelage.
When a magazines such as Men’s Health or Men’s Fitness want to get a specific person (Peter Andre, Wesley Doyle, Glenn Parker) in cover model condition they turn to Nick Mitchell and his team.
When Hollywood actor Sam Reid needed to add muscle in a ridiculously short time for his role as Raphael in Paradise Lost, there was only one personal training team that could do the job.
When world class athletes like England ruby player Olly Philips and World Long Jump Medallist Jade Johnson need their bodies bullet proofing from injuries, it is the UP team that makes them stronger and fit to perform.
But make no mistake about it, we are most certainly not celebrity trainers. We are trainers who aim to help anybody achieve the best shape of their lives. We don’t care who you, we just care about your results.
