Welcome to Meltdown, our radical and proven 6 week Fat Loss Programme!
The Marbella 6 Week Fat Loss Programme!
Can you count how many times you’ve been exceedingly envious of the bronzed, toned beach bodies you see rolling and running about on the beaches?
Can you count how many times you’ve vowed to (re)join the gym when you return to your home country only to put it off again, and again, and again until you embark on another holiday months later only to start this cruel cycle again?!
And let’s not forget the inevitable New Year’s Resolution, where we swear – inebriated, may we add – to shed that beer belly and love handles to become a totally new you but never quite make it past the first few sessions but end up paying monthly for it anyway because you’ll “start again next month”?!
And, finally, for those of you that have worked hard, for months and months at a time, sacrificing your free time in the evenings and weekends toward an eventual change, exhausting yourself which affects your work and sleep routine and subsequently your social life – don’t you just want to feel normal again?!
We understand. No really, we do. It’s incredibly hard work to tick off fat loss goals, especially when you raise the bar so high even in the beginning. What if we were to say the problem isn’t you? What if we were to say the problem was indeed the programme you had decided for yourself or, ironically, had been recommended by an “expert”?
Here at Ultimate Performance we take ourselves quite seriously. So seriously in fact that our Meltdown Fat Loss Programme has been a whopping 15 years in the making. No cutting corners, no ineffective guides on paper or worthless “tips”: just solid, scientifically proven, testifiable results that guarantee you – so long as you work hard – a positive change to your life.
To give our Fat Loss Programme a bit more context in an ever changing fitness industry, here are some of the latest facts about Fat Loss that informed our Programme:
The fat loss workout programmes you read about in magazines and taught by ordinary fitness instructors are far too often built from out-of-date exercise science and nutrition information, and it is for this reason that thousands of people go to the gym and often they never seem to be in better shape!
In most gyms today you are welcomed to not only a painfully busy environment but the classic row of treadmills or stationary bikers all desperately sweating in the hopes that “maybe next week all this work will pay off..” The truth to these horribly boring exercises is they are counterproductive and hugely detrimental to your body both hormonally (less energy and muscle, more fat) and harmful physically due to the repetitive strain of set movement patterns.
The latest fat loss research that our Fat Loss Programme is based on means that you lose more fat rapidly than ever before whilst retaining the muscle and overall physique you’ve worked so hard for. This research comes directly from the rate of development of sports performance and coaching since the 1990s.
Though resistance training does indeed promote fat loss, most trainers don’t include it in their programme and if they do, as said before, it will be based on long expired methods.This develops muscular endurance but if fat loss is your goal it does very little to work toward that goal. With our Meltdown programme, you will lift weights in such a fashion so that you hold onto your muscle whilst also stoking your metabolic furnace into overdrive!
Traditional workouts burn fat whilst you exercise, however when you step off the cardio machine your metabolism switches to its default setting. This is utterly counterproductive as in order to keep burning fat long after you’ve left the gym your metabolism needs to stay elevated. Because our Fat Loss Programme is so finely engineered we can guarantee that you will continue to burn body fat up 38 hours after exercise! Many of our clients comment on how hungry they feel after training with us, or how light they feel on their feet – these are all signs of a highly stimulated metabolism and therefore eventual – and impressive – fat loss!
So what exactly is it and does it really work?
Our Fat Loss Workouts, Diets & Exercises are based on a scientifically proven system that is so effective that it can be tailored to the goals of everyone – from elite athletes looking to rapidly shed off season weight, through to busy business people and parents with young children. It is a plan that aims to deliver maximum results in minimum time.
Devised by Nick Mitchell, founder of Ultimate Performance and hailed as “London’s Best Personal Trainer”, the Fat Loss Programme began with Nick’s highly considered observations of the male and female athletes who trained at the University of London. The sports they would partake in were often explosive in nature such as sprinting and jumping, both really high energy workouts. Nick noticed that they avoided traditional “fat burning” workouts like the plague, such as long distance and slow & steady cardio. Their athletic, lean, muscular and – as a result – attractive physiques were, Nick concluded, a direct result of their chosen workouts.
Glenn’s quite incredible fat loss transformation didn’t happen in 6
weeks, it took 15 weeks of unbelievable effort to achieve some amazing (and world famous) results. What have you done for your own body in the last 4 months
Nick, being the man he is, wanted to take a highly empirical and deeply objective approach to the creation of his Fat Loss Programme. Building such a proven system that works took the combined effort of our own extensive Pharmacological research at Cambridge University and studying further with world class coaches such as Charles Poliquin, developer of the BioSignature Modulation protocols used extensively in our initial assessments. Pair this with decades of hands-on, deep in the trenches gym experience along with literally thousands of personal training sessions with people of all shapes and sizes and rigorous scrutiny of hundreds of peer-reviewed medical research papers. The end product, after all this, is a Fat Loss Programme so wonderfully crafted that the average fat loss in those 6 weeks is a staggering 18lb! This is a phenomenal amount and, of course, will be a truly life changing result.
Nick and his team at Ultimate Performance have perfected the Meltdown 6 Week Fat Loss Programme to such an extent that – quite remarkably – they can tell you almost exactly how much body fat you should drop after just 2 weeks of training.
So, now you know what it is, does it really work? The answer is a very strong yes, but only through the combined effort of our hard working clients and expert Personal Trainers. Over the years we have built an extensive portfolio of pride-building testimonials who write first-hand accounts of our Fat Loss Programme and the incredible results they achieved from it. Head over to our Male and Female Results page to get a real flavour what you can expect!
Our Meltdown plan is a six week intensive fat loss programme which consists of:
Initial Assessment and BioSignature Consultation
Having worked extensively with Olympic Coach Charles Poliquin, Nick Mitchell implemented BioSignature Modulation into his Fat Loss Programmes as a sure-fire way to achieve notable fat loss and muscle building results.
BioSignature works so remarkably well because it is tailored to your own unique body fat and hormonal composition. In short, it is a painless method to delve deep into your biochemical and hormonal make up to find out what needs to be tackled head on to lose body fat quickly and efficiently. Our clients benefit from its proven protocols by way of easily modulating their exercise, nutrition and supplementation around their own unique hormonal profile. For those who want to find out more about BioSignature Modulation, we write in depth on the BioSignature Modulation page.
In addition to the BioSignature readings we go through an important Health and Fitness Questionnaire so your Personal Trainer can learn the tough facts about your exercise history and experience, along with vital medical factors. Your Personal Trainer uses this to gain a stronger understanding of you so that it may inform their structuring of our Fat Loss system to best fit around your lifestyle. We follow this strict methodology but seek to tailor it to your unique circumstances.
Naturally we will then undertake an extensive body composition analysis where we calculate:
Body Fat Percentages;
Body Part Measurements, including Weight and Height;
Structural, Postural, and Muscular Balance Testing to Identify Your Strengths and Weaknesses
How We Can Address These Strengths and Weaknesses for an Injury Free Body.
To assess your strength and weaknesses, we conduct the following tests developed by one of the world’s best known physiotherapists Gray Cook:
Deep Overhead Squat
Active Straight Leg Raise
We also test you on several key major resistance exercises in order to assess the structural balance of key supporting musculature such as the rotator cuff. This is to ensure the long term integrity of your body’s muscles and soft tissue, keeping you healthy and active, and not in constant visitation to the physio!
Nutritional Consultation and Audit
In order for us to maintain our integrity and reputation, it is very important you keep a food diary of exactly what you consume in a regular week. This is paramount as it allows us to conduct a full scale audit to necessary accuracy of dietary habits and we can begin to make enlightened decisions to how you eat, rather than blanket statements that do not apply to you as an individual.
Your Fat Loss Programme will have very strict nutritional protocols. Our clients all receive highly personalised dietary programmes that will instruct you how you should eat for each and every day of your 42 Day Programme! We go deep into the minutiae because we understand the importance of you knowing exactly what to expect from your programme. Leaving things to chance is not how we gained our impressive reputation!
In addition to your dietary programme, we will also map out a detailed supplementation programme that includes every possible permutation of what food supplements you can take to enhance your progress.
Fat Loss Exercise Programme Design
So, after our consultations with you, we have enough data gathered to construct a unique Fat Loss Programme tailored to your needs and based on the Meltdown Principles. This is of course a 6 Week Plan that is designed to evolve as your own conditioning improves and will ultimately see you burning fat and ramping up your metabolism right from the very first workout.
In order to get the results you want you will meet with your Personal Trainer three times a week for six weeks. In this time you can perform your agreed Meltdown exercises and workouts, robust enough to start feeling like a different person within a few weeks. On top of these sessions we will require that you put in a further two to three half hour energy training workouts at home or in the gym each week.
During your workouts your Personal Trainer will pay close attention to your form, your fitness and your progress in order to effectively monitor your Fat Loss goals. Your Personal Trainer will provide a service combining motivator, educator, statistician and task master!
What we expect from you
We are very proud of Meltdown’s reputation, and Nick Mitchell will do nothing to compromise his reputation as a Fat Loss Guru. Unlike most Personal Trainers who will take on any client, no matter how wavering their commitment, we are very particular about who we take on as a client. To this extent there are certain conditions that we demand each client agrees to before embarking on the 6 Week Fat Loss Programme:
Make the time to train with us three times a week. We are willing to work at any time of the day or night, and will even open the gym at 4am if you ask us very nicely! There are always legitimate reasons not to exercise, but we will not accept if you can’t find the time for a six week period which, relative to your entire life-span, is a tiny amount of time.
Give up alcohol, wheat and processed foods for at least the first 14 days of the Meltdown programme.
Accept that you must follow the 90/10 rule. 90% of what you do from exercise to food intake must be EXACTLY as we tell you. The other 10% we leave to your conscience.
Give 100% effort throughout the programme and maintain a positive approach at all times. Burning fat isn’t a walk in the park, but if you embrace it wholeheartedly you will have an enjoyable, energising, and wholly rewarding experience.
These are the things that we expect of you. If they sound too challenging, then we are sorry but perhaps Meltdown isn’t for you.
So once you’ve enrolled on our Meltdown Programme, you can expect all of these things:
Noticeable fat loss within 10 days!
More energy and vigour to your life. You will have a spring in your step that will take you back to your youth!
Better skin tone as a result of the clean diet and toxin free lifestyle!
A more toned and shapely body!
Better sleeping patterns!
After six weeks, a slimmer and more confident you will be looking back in the mirror!
Envious glances from colleagues!
A small hole in your wallet as you start buying better fitting clothes!
And where better to experience all of these incredible transformations than our brand new Ultimate Performance Gym in Marbella!
After all, when the results start to show, you can roll around on the beach like you’ve always wanted!
