A dreamy Italian wedding demands a physique befitting of the occasion – and Aaron’s transformation gave him just that.
The 40-year-old London lawyer wanted to be his absolute best for his big day and have memories he could look back on with pride.
But feeling tired, overweight and with the clock ticking, he just couldn’t feel excited about the wedding or the Las Vegas holiday for his stag party – in fact, just thinking about it was stressing him out.
Aaron knew putting his body in the hands of the experts at Ultimate Performance Mayfair would help him get the results he wanted ready for his wedding day.
His results exceeded all expectations – after losing almost 20kg in 18 weeks and losing two thirds of body fat along the way, he is now looking and feeling better than ever.
“I feel good about myself again – inside and out.
“To go from 102kg to 83kg in the amount of time we have, is incredible really.
“I can’t say enough about what is achieved here.”
Aaron had been to U.P. several years ago and knew how to maintain his results and a good base level of fitness.
But a combination of injury, as well as work- and personal-life commitments and stress, had slowly added weight to his usually-lean frame.
“I have been to U.P. before and been through a transformation before so it wasn’t like it was new to me.
“But it’s strange that how over time when you are training on your own, you forget and start getting into bad habits and before you realise it, you are not doing any of the things you know you should be.
“Which is why I hurt my back, because I wasn’t warming up, I was going straight into heavy lifting!”

Aaron was very tight on time, he had to get fit in 4 months – this fuelled his focus even more.
He knew he could do it, but this time he was starting off from an even worse position.
He knew he was in for some hard training and the nutrition side of things would demand real self-control – but he was 100% ready to commit to get the results he wanted.
“At the start, I found it difficult to look at my photos. In my first photos. I can’t look at the camera, I am bloated and clearly unhappy.
“It is hard to look at it and actually now it is hard to remember, and it’s not even that long ago. But I do remember feeling really uncomfortable with myself. And I had felt like that for a long time.
“As somebody who has always gone to the gym, had always been lean before and is known for it – it was really tough to be that way.”
Aaron needed structure and a no-nonsense regime to get the most out of him.
We matched him with a trainer that would give him exactly that and challenge him every step of the way to get the results he wanted.
“I cut out alcohol, was strict with my nutrition macros and prioritised a good night’s sleep at every opportunity. It’s not overly complicated when you have the willpower to do it.
“The sessions are not an hour’s worth of fun, and they are not supposed to be because they are hard work.
“You get pushed. But I guess that’s the point, isn’t it?
“But I enjoyed the routine, I liked it being regimented, I enjoyed focusing on form – I needed that kind of structure.”

Looking at Aaron now, no one can deny the results.
His dedication got the most out of the U.P. programme.
“Physically, I had more energy, and I felt more positive, productive, and happy. It wasn’t that I just felt like my old self again…I felt better!
“My confidence was back, and this fed into my work life and home life.
“I was also waking and getting up at 5:30am every morning. I was getting 8 hours of sleep, and I woke up feeling completely rejuvenated, rested, and motivated looking forward to the day.
“I can’t say enough about the impact focusing on the physical side of the things had on everything else.”
Aaron feels like he got real return on his investment from his transformation at U.P.
“A U.P. transformation isn’t cheap, but the cost is what it is because of what you get out of it.
“Like everything in life, you get what you pay for, and there is a reason why U.P. costs the amount of money it does.
“So if you are really focused and you really want to achieve the body you want, then it’s one of the best places to get to your goals.
“A transformation isn’t complicated. Train hard, stick to the diet, and rest up. The biggest problem in achieving what you want is you! If you have the willpower, you can achieve anything you want to.”
