Hani had been a die-hard foodie all his life – but this lifestyle had led him down the path to obesity.
The constant struggle to find ways and means of losing this weight seemed like a never-ending battle.
From joining various gyms to trying nutritionists, nothing worked.
Feeling rock bottom at the hopelessness of his situation, his mother showed him an article of the incredible body transformations at Ultimate Performance which motivated him to give fitness one last chance.
Working with the experts at U.P. has been utterly transformative for Hani. He has not only got rid of significant excess weight, but every aspect of his life has benefited from the renewed confidence and self-esteem he has found.
“The goals were very realistic. After I joined U.P., one of the biggest things that changed was my hope of knowing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
“Losing 30kg (66lbs) was a big surprise to a lot of people but it was one of the biggest things I’ve ever done in my life.
“Given the period, I never really expected U.P. to deliver such results.”
Before he started his transformation, Hani had no control over his diet or his weight.
He felt thing things had hit rock bottom and he desperately wanted to change his life, but he didn’t know how.
“I first heard about U.P. about a year ago when I was crying on my bed about my overweight situation and then my mum came in with an article about U.P. because she searched what would be the best training service in London.
“She heard about U.P. and she was telling me that we should probably go check out and book an appointment.”
Poor diet, a lack of physical activity, and no guidance were the main contributing factors to Hani’s steady decline into obesity.
It didn’t just affect him physically, it took a toll on him mentally too. He lost all his self-confidence and stopped socialising too.
“Before U.P., my lifestyle and my whole health situation were on a steady decline. At the time, I wasn’t very confident.
“I would be eating 6,000-plus calories every day along with very little movement. This also affected my academic performance.
“It was very difficult for me to socialize because nobody wants to be friends with the fat kid, so it made me feel quite insecure about myself and it turned me into quite an introverted person which hindered a lot of opportunities I had in my life.”
Tired of seeing no results, Hani was convinced that U.P. was the place to help transform his life completely.
What he needed was the guidance, support and accountability of a personal training professional to finally lose weight.
So he committed himself to the program and the results came almost instantaneously.
“I needed professional help and I couldn’t do it on my own because I tried for several years to do it on my own and I knew that if anybody could bring my happiness back it would be U.P.
“They were very warm and welcoming from the very start. There was no judging involved and that’s why this is the place to be.
“Earlier, being with nutritionists, they always put all the diet plans into cookie-cutting forms and that never changed my life.
“That’s why I feel U.P. is very different because I kept the same habits, the same lifestyle, and U.P. taught me how to be independent and gave me a full-on lifestyle.
“I wasn’t very active and throughout this whole transformation, I’ve become a lot more active and I’ve become very confident now.”
What Hani got when he joined U.P. was a professional to take charge of the whole weight loss process – managing his diet, his training and his progress tracking.
Removing all the thinking from the process, allowed Hani to be able to focus on executing the plan.
With this approach he quickly started seeing results – his fitness and strength were going up week on week, and it was gratifying to see his weight coming down.
“Before, I was very overweight, at about 140kg (309lbs), whereas when I made it down to 110kg (243lbs), I felt like physically I was in my best state.
“I was able to lift and my general posture improved. I’ve improved a lot in terms of just how much I walk, play football, run and jog.
“I love food and I love treating myself. I no longer have the mind of ‘Oh! Pasta, pizza, and burgers are bad’ because U.P. taught me that there’s no such thing as bad foods. Everything moderation is fine.”
“The results made me feel really good about myself – I was getting compliments from people I haven’t spoken to in years and my parents. My dad, who comes back home every couple of months to see me, compliments the way I’ve improved.
“I do have it in me to change my life and push myself forward and change something about myself if I put my mind to it.”
From an introvert to a social butterfly, Hani is a changed man now and U.P.’s training has made him believe that nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it.
“Believe in yourself not thinking that you’re any less than anybody. There is always a positive end if you put your mind to it.
“U.P. has shown me that nothing is impossible at all and it’s brought out the positives in me that I didn’t know I had.
“This would not have been possible without all the support from my trainer and everyone at U.P. from the moment I came in for the meeting until today.”
