Nick’s approach is a perfect blend of science and experience. He has worked with so many clients, and been so immersed in the industry, that he can very quickly assess what each individual needs to do to get the results they are looking for. He spends significant time coaching those within UP, passing on this experience, and making sure they provide the best possible service for their clients.

“In just 12 weeks I lost 8kg of fat, added 10kg of muscle and ended up on the front cover of Men’s Fitness magazine. I don’t for one second believe that there is another trainer in the UK capable of getting such phenomenal results. Nick Mitchell is, without question, the king of body transformations.” – Joe Warner

 

Nick has built very strong connections with other world leaders in strength and conditioning. Olympic coach Charles Poliquin described him as “the smartest, hungriest and most compelling Personal Trainer I’ve ever known”.
Charles Poliquin: “With these startling results Nick Mitchell has reaffirmed himself as one of Europe’s top trainers. I myself saw Glenn at the early stages of his transformation and to see him come so far in such as short space of time is a testament both to his own steely determination and work ethic, and to Nick’s depth of experience and coaching knowledge.”

Being coached by Nick is tough. He is a hard taskmaster, and demands commitment from his trainees. Brilliance does not come easy, and Nick’s no BS approach means that many clients have achieved results better than they could even imagine. Unlike other PTs who want to raise their own profile and relish the chance of a photo op, Nick would rather his clients stepped into the spotlight. As Nick says:
“Those who come to work with me and my team at Ultimate Performance should come because they want something special, something that you would never find in a commercial gym or a pristine, chrome-filled personal training studio. We ask a lot of our clients, but we give even more back, and because of this we are certainly not the right Personal Trainers for everybody. But if you want results – real, tangible life changing results – then I think you should be knocking on our door”.
