Nick Mitchell practising exactly what he preaches!

How amazing would it be to enjoy the beach to its fullest?

We’re not talking about colossal sandcastles, compliant footballs that glide gracefully on the sand, or a barbeque with every possible variant of meat imaginable.

Actually we take it back, imagine all those things. Awesome right? Now take a look at yourself on that beach. What do you look like? Do you look like you do now, or perhaps you’ve envisaged yourself with a buff physique and you’re surrounded by gawking women?

Believe it or not, it is not such a fairy tale vision. Why should it be!? Colossal sandcastles aside, there is absolutely no reason why you should settle for a body that you’re unhappy with. Instead, you should take the bull by the horns and start working for that beach body you’ve only dreamed of, and here at Ultimate Performance we can teach you how.

Don’t stop reading! Here’s something you won’t know:

Did you know that 98% of standard healthy adult males can build a well muscled, powerful physique with less than 18 months of following the right muscle building programmes?

How about the fact that the same 95% could have a Brad Pitt body in just three months?

Or the statistical fact that our average male clients gains well over 20lbs of solid beef on our 12 Week Muscle Building Programme?!

And despite all of this, we know that most you reading this will have wasted months, or even years, in constant battle to get lean and gain muscle but never quite advancing from that first flash of muscle gain when you first started.

If we said we feel your pain, that’d be a lie. We don’t feel your pain, and neither do our clients. They build an incredible amount of muscle by way of their own hard work but more importantly, through our unique Muscle Building Programmes.

“With these startling results Nick Mitchell has reaffirmed himself as one of Europe’s top trainers. I myself saw the subject at the early stages of his transformation and to see him come so far in such as short space of time is a testament to Nick’s depth of experience and coaching knowledge.” – Charles Poliquin

What makes your Muscle Building programme different  from everyone else?

Our programmes are designed to overcome all possible plateaus and to pack on visible muscle in the right places and, even better, in record time. We have used it to add off season bulk to competitive sportsmen, to beef up male models in time for underwear shoots and of course to transform countless regular men like you and I from scrawny to brawny for those beach holidays!

Together as a team, Ultimate Performance represents arguably the best insider knowledge for muscle building in Europe. Consider that eight times Mr Olympia Ronnie Coleman chooses our gym on his visits to London, and when the world’s best strength and conditioning coach Charles Poliquin makes regular visits it is only Ultimate Performance gyms and trainers that match his exacting standards. Remember, this is man who has trained scores and scores of Summer and Winter Olympic Games medallists. These credentials speak for themself.

We are so confident in our system because it works every time. It works so well because we have stripped everything arbitrary from it, everything that could hinder your training and diet. Here at Ultimate Performance we leave nothing to chance, covering every possible variable vital to achieving rapid muscular growth. Our programmes are by no means undemanding, and if you want to make great gains it can be extremely tough work. That said, if your want outweighs your indifference our programmes always deliver.

Our Muscle Building system grew from applying everything we’ve learnt from both the hits and misses of solid, in the trenches experience of decades working on adding muscle mass to thousands of people of all shapes and sizes and walks of life. This is not a one size fits all programme by any means, and is often radically overhauled for each of clients unique physiology, training experience and goals.It incorporates a periodised exercise routine designed to increase both STRENGTH and MUSCLE MASS, and will see you partaking in challenging routines combined with overall phases of intensification, accumulation and super-compensation that include training cycles of low set, heavy duty work and high set volume work, including low rep functional hypertrophy work with advanced principes such as clusters and wave loading. It is for all these reasons that we believe we have created one of the most powerful muscle building programmes in the world.

What about nutrition? Is this overlooked?

Nutrition and the latest dietary supplementation are areas we pay particularly close attention to. In many fitness circumstances trainers tend to focus on exercise alone, ignoring proper nutritional advice and guidance. This is detrimental to the overall transformation of an individual, and subsequently is quite the opposite to the approach we take on our Muscle Building Programme.

What you eat is crucial to your progress in the gym, and years of trial and error on our part have seen us try out every possible permutation of every existing nutritional school of thought that has ever been conceived by the bodybuilding and athletic community.

In order to create such a successful programme that works, our team is build from those with an array of nutritional qualifications right up to Cambridge University Masters Level in Pharmacology, or more specifically the pharmacological impact of nutrition and nutritional supplementation. The important details of our programme we like to keep close to our chests, and as such are kept exclusively for our clients since it is at the cutting edge of nutritional thinking. We borrow much from the latest scientific findings and research studies from the likes of Mauro Di Pasquale, a world champion bodybuilder and retired Assistant Professor lecturing on athletic performance and nutritional supplements at the University of Toronto.


What can you achieve in the nine week period it took to so drastically change Robert’s back?!

Our Muscle Fitness, Muscle Building & Bodybuilding Programmes consist of twelve weeks of intensive Workouts which includes the following:

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.

After the additional BioSignature readings, we go through an important Health and Fitness Questionnaire when 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

  • Hurdle Step

  • In-Line Lunge

  • Active Straight Leg Raise

  • Seated Rotation


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!

Muscle Fibre Testing

Utilising the data taken during the initial tests we then undertake a series of exercises and movements designed to non-invasively test your muscle fibre makeup and ascertain your balance of Type I, Type IIa and Type IIb muscle fibres.

This is done so we can best decide what training systems and repetition protocols your body will respond effectively to. Interestingly, we all have different fibre make ups in different muscle groups so this testing procedure proves extremely effective in helping us improve stubborn, non-responding muscles.

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 very important 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 12 Week Muscle Building 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 84 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!

Paul’s radical physical transformation came about through hard and diligent training coupled with a precise nutritional and supplementation plan that suited his own unique biochemistry.

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.

Muscle Building Programme Design

On the basis of the data gathered by our initial consultations we then construct a unique Muscle Fitness, Muscle Building or Bodybuilding workout programme just for you. This is a 12 week workout plan that is designed to evolve as your own conditioning improves and will see you gaining noticeable muscular weight and strength within the first 10 days.

We also take into account the information gathered during the physical assessments, and construct a plan that takes into account any pre existing or potential structural / muscular imbalances, addressing weaknesses head on and eliminating them with the application of modern sports science programme design.

Personal Training Sessions

In order to get the results you want you will meet with your Personal Trainer three times a week for twelve weeks. In this time you can perform your agreed Muscle Building exercises and workouts, robust enough to start feeling a different person within a few weeks.

During your workouts your Personal Trainer will pay close attention to your form, your fitness and your progress in order to effectively monitor your Muscle Building goals. Your Personal Trainer will provide a service combining motivator, educator, statistician and task master!






We pay extremely close attention to everything that you do when exercising with us, always monitoring your form, your fitness and your progress, and view the “in the gym” part of our service as being a combination of motivator, educator, statistician and task master!

What we expect from you!

We are very proud of our 12 Week Muscle Building Programme reputation, and will do nothing to compromise said reputation built over a long time of hard work from both our clients and Personal Trainers. 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 12 Week Muscle Building 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. Building muscle 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 Muscle Building Programme isn’t for you.

So once you’ve enrolled on our Muscle Building Programme, you can expect all of these things:

  1. Noticeable muscular weight gain within 10 days!

  2. More energy and vigour to your life. It sounds sort of corny but you will naturally feel more strong and powerful!

  3. A more toned and physically impressive body;

  4. Better sleeping patterns!

  5. After 12 weeks, a more muscular and more confident you will be looking back in the mirror!

  6. Envious glances from colleagues!

  7. A small hole in your wallet as you start to accommodate your new frame!

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’ll need a beach to show off your well-earned physique!
