With a 3-year-old daughter, Louise felt it was time to focus on her fitness.
She had been trying in vain to lose weight and get fit since her pregnancy, and knew she needed expert guidance to get her body back.
So, when her husband suggested they join the Ultimate Performance 12-week transformation programme together – she jumped at the chance to change things around.
“I think it’s a bit inspirational when you see where I came from. I referenced the ideal body when I signed up, and the body I have now is far better! Actually, if someone had told me I would be able to look like that, I wouldn’t have believed them. It’s amazing.”
After her initial 12-week programme passed, Louise resolved to keep on going.
In the last 6 months, she lost 17kg and brought her body fat down from 21% to a slimline 9.6% and brought pleasing shape and tone to her hips, waist, arms, and thighs.
Louise had worked out on and off for years, but after the birth of her daughter, she found it hard to shift the pregnancy weight.
Busy with work and parenting, fitness obviously took a bit of a backseat. But she was tired of feeling overweight and unhealthy and jumped at the chance to join U.P. Mayfair.
“I was carrying a lot of weight on my legs and my tummy. I was not strong, and I didn’t feel especially fit.
“I was definitely unhappy and knew I could achieve more. I had very specific goals when I joined. It was really about losing weight but also gaining strength, and I think over time I have become more and more ambitious about what I can achieve.”
Paired with U.P. trainer Michele, Louise found a perfect partner to channel her energy and hard work. She was 100% committed but needed a guide to get the right results.
“When I went through the first 12 weeks, I thought to myself – hang on a minute, I think I can look better. So I signed up for another 12 weeks.
“I never truly believed achieving what I’ve achieved was possible. My mind had put a limit around what my body was capable of. I am so proud of what we achieved; my mind has now done a full 360, the only thing keeping it occupied is what’s next, where do we go from here?
“The big change for me has been my confidence, both inside and outside of the gym. Feeling healthier and stronger and looking better has given me a real boost mentally. I relish the challenge; it’s given me the motivation to constantly up my game in all areas of my life.”

Louise is hooked on the gym lifestyle. She finds the fitness, the physical and mental improvements, and the other benefits of training, quite addictive and is now looking forward to setting – and smashing – new fitness goals.
“At U.P., I learnt, or rather re-learnt, that I’m capable of anything I put my mind to. Another key learning was that you might not always be motivated, but you have to be disciplined, and that consistency is key.
“You have to want it, there are plenty of moments when you will be pushing yourself way outside your comfort zone, but that’s how you improve and achieve things you could only have imagined previously. If you’re disciplined and focused, there is no limit to what you can achieve.”
What Louise has learned during her time at U.P. has set her up for life.
“U.P. for me, has been an education. A lesson in how to eat properly and work out effectively. But also a reminder of what I’m capable of when I truly put my mind to something. The business model is unparalleled. My partnership with Michele, a phenomenal trainer, perfectly aligned with me in terms of our objectives, and has been the key to my success. We are a winning team, and I’m super excited to see where we go next.”
“I have already – and will continue to recommend U.P. to anyone who asks (and plenty of people who haven’t!). It is by far the best investment I have ever made in myself.”
