Your Questions Answered
Will I get big & bulky?
No, you won’t. A whole mythology has sprung up around women’s fat loss that if they do anything at all like men then they will somehow become manly. We are the same species and certain rules do cross over but we will teach you those rules, along with the tricks and twists that give extra relevance to female fat loss requirements.
Do I have to eat the same boring food all the time?
No, you don’t. You can have interesting quick to make food limited only by your cooking skills and imagination, within certain boundaries.
I’m too big and embarrassed to start.
We are serious about our results but warm, friendly and welcoming to all our clients at UP Amsterdam. We invite you into the gym for a chat and to look around our Central Amsterdam location to make sure we are right for each other.
We understand the fear it takes to walk into a gym, many clients describe multiple visits before they get the courage to come in so we understand how you feel but we are here to help you at every stage.
We are repeatedly told that the environment is not at all what clients expected.
You will NOT be judged.
There are no funny looks or elitism, and no egos. Our trainers love to solve clients’ problems and we have one mission, get you the results you deserve in the shortest time possible.
Surely I should just do cardio and eat fruit?
Here is an example of bad habits and myths we have to contend with on a regular basis – jump on the treadmill, eat low fat foods, 5 servings of fruit per day, yogurt and granola for breakfast and a banana and skinny latte at 11am, take fat burning supplements, that are not quite as dangerous as scaremongers would have you believe, but are certainly not the optimal choice for fast, safe and effective fat loss – especially for women.
All too common but wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong!
Ask yourself this one question – how many women do you know who consistently go to the gym, spend all their time on recumbent bikes and elliptical machines, and don’t ever seem to drop an ounce of weight?
The chances are that nearly all your female friends who attend the gym fall into this category. Now we are not going to tell you that all cardio is evil, the human body is far too complicated to ever take crazily dogmatic points of view, but we do show our female clients the correct way to use their time in the gym for real and tangible results.
