Henri was on the verge of turning 50 and ready to give up on getting fit.
A bad shoulder injury was holding him back from regaining the fitness he had enjoyed in the past.
Forty-nine-year-old Henri was also struggling to find the right diet that would help him feel good while building some muscle.
No matter what he tried – intermittent fasting or even professional nutritionists – nothing worked and he just constantly felt bloated.
The light at the end of the tunnel for him was finding Ultimate Performance Amsterdam.
The professional and holistic approach to body transformation really clicked with him.
U.P.’s tried-and-tested nutrition and training methodology helped him overcome his shoulder injury to lose 10kg in 12 weeks.
“The results were very impressive. I looked like Tarzan in the pictures!
“Seeing myself in the mirror after all that work, I felt extremely proud of my achievement and thankful to U.P. and my trainer – I guess this is how movie stars train!”
Henri was no stranger to training. He had tried to get back to exercising and eating healthily following his injury, but just a few weeks at U.P. was enough to show him how he was doing it all wrong.
“I was feeling demotivated, mainly because of the shoulder injury and lack of progress. My digestion was not that great either. I was almost continuously bloated.
“I was experimenting a lot with my diet. I started with intermittent fasting, and in the last two months, I followed a diet that I ordered from a nutritionist that should have helped me make progress in building muscle.
“This did not work, however. So even though I wanted to eat more healthily, due to the lack of knowledge, it did not work out very well.
“I was working out three times a week, but because of my shoulder injury and, again, lack of knowledge, progress was minimal in the last couple of months.”
KNOWING HOW TO TRAIN AND EAT FOR YOUR BODY IS KEY TO EVERY BODY TRANSFORMATION.

In just a few weeks after joining U.P., Henri started to see the results of the new nutrition plan.
He saw the benefits of tracking his diet and training and developed complete trust in his trainer, Amir.
“After about four weeks, I could really see the difference in the mirror, and after six weeks, I remember looking in the mirror and thinking ‘Wow! I look great!’ I haven’t felt like that for a long time.”
“In other gyms, we have a fixed set of things that we do for three months, and in the end, we see what happens.
“Here at U.P. we monitor the progress and adapt the training and the diet to what’s happened to the body almost weekly.
“It is so surprising how it all works together so nicely – the combination of doing the exercise exactly the way you should, the right nutrition, and monitoring of the progress. It is such an eye-opener how that creates such a big effect.”
Henri’s trainer helped him pinpoint his weaknesses and really zero in on the exercises that would give him the biggest benefit.
“I was weak in the back, so we started really pushing the back.
“Then the back improved and we saw the shoulders needed more attention because I had a shoulder injury, so the first couple of months I wasn’t able to do anything and now in the last six weeks we have we started working the shoulders, and there have been no problems.
“So, that was another eye-opener; I had started to become disillusioned with training and thought I was never going to heal or train again like I wanted, but it’s very clear now that you can work around an injury if you know what you are doing.”
Henri saw improvements all around – he not only felt a lot better physically, but his energy levels and his digestion also improved.
He slept better and had more mental clarity and self-confidence in his day-to-day life.
“To be honest, the biggest benefits are not even the physical or mental improvements.
“The biggest improvement, for me, is that I feel I learnt how to take care of my workout and diet programmes.
“I did not just follow instructions during my time at U.P. – I learnt a lot about the hows and whys of the diet and exercises.
“This gives me the confidence that I can continue on this path by myself. U.P. changed me into someone that knows what he is doing in the gym and in the kitchen.
“If you are serious about transforming yourself, U.P. is ‘best in class’. U.P. is for anyone who wants to invest in themselves.”
