Here at Ultimate Performance we know better than anyone (other than perhaps women themselves!) that it is much, much harder for women to lose fat and get lean than it is for their male counterparts. Those who do not agree with this statement are naive to the scientific facts of women and fat loss, or more often than not are attempting to sell you a fitness guide that simply won’t work, and will leave you overweight.
Promises are easy to make, but for those of you who are prepared to work hard and follow our advice to the letter then life changing fat loss results can be yours. Here are just a sample of our hundreds of female fat loss results, take your time and read their stories, they were all once where you are now.

All our Hong Kong clients, male and female have deeply personal, sometimes complex and often very emotional reasons for being unhappy with their current body weight or shape.
Most often feeling too busy or stressed with work and family commitments or even a little bit of laziness or lack of knowledge trap us in an unhealthy self-perpetuating cycle and we feel tired and sluggish, our sleep suffers, we binge or comfort eat or rely on unhealthy convenience options too often and it affects both our body and mind.
The pattern is familiar; it doesn’t happen overnight but accumulates over time and tends to hit us as a big shock in the clothes store, the mirror, looking at old photographs or when we just can’t physically do something we once found easy.
Natalie didn’t achieve this in 12 weeks but she took her commitment beyond that time to change forever using skills gained from Ultimate Performance personal trainers.
For some of our clients their motivation is less dramatic but no less meaningful, they want to look great in their wedding dress with all their friends and family around them, or more toned on the beach with their partner so they feel better about themselves or their work demands they are in shape for Catwalk or Screen.

We understand that nutrition plays a huge role in getting you the results you want and for that reason we make sure all of our clients have their own bespoke diet plan. At UP Hong Kong this is created during your first session using a questionnaire, which asks all we need to know about your diet history and lifestyle in order to put the perfect plan in place.
We then take your body composition stats and ask about your goals, then combine all this together to create the ultimate fat loss plan unique to you.
Unlike a lot of fad diets that take away entire food groups or drinking shakes to severely limit calories this plan has been made to fit your lifestyle not just for now, but for the long term. This means that once you have got into the shape of your life, you can then maintain that shape year round.
Once this plan is in place we will then monitor your progression via daily emails and constant feedback from you, making small changes to the plan along the way as and when needed. This daily monitoring of your nutritional habits and progression is how we ensure the best result possible over a 12 week period.
Your diet plan will cover everything you need but we’ve found over the years that most clients can benefit from a small amount of supplements. After our assessment and on an ongoing basis if we spot an issue or deficiency not easily or conveniently corrected with food we can recommend the best available supplement products to you.
One of the best ways to monitor your progress and see the changes you are making to your body, is to take weekly photographs.
This can seem nerve wrecking at first, standing in front of a complete stranger whilst they point a camera at you.
All of our Hong Kong personal trainers are highly skilled professionals who look at the pictures from a completely professional point of view, noticing subtle changes that aren’t always seen by the untrained eye.
These subtle changes help the trainer to make sure you are moving in the right direction; after the 12 week plan once you see the pictures the changes will no longer be subtle but dramatic.
All of the pictures are confidential, between client and trainer for the benefit of judging progress but many clients when they are happy with their results want to show them off. The images you see here represent those clients who want to act as inspiration for others and are happy to share.
Many of our clients don’t want to be shown, and we respect that.
We are also able to arrange professional gym photo shoots for our clients.
Body prophet is a unique assessment tool from Ultimate Performance.
It has been created by our world leading personal trainers, in order to get you the fastest results possible by helping us understand why you are storing fat.
The system works by creating a hormonal profile, assessing why you store fat in certain areas and the ratio in which you store fat across your body.
From here we can put together a highly specific nutritional and supplement protocol, which is unique to your body and will accelerate results.
Unlike similar tools Body Prophet has been creating using data from our own fat loss clients across the globe. We are constantly collecting and comparing the data between our trainers worldwide in order to ensure our software is up to date.
On the basis of the data gathered by our initial consultations we then construct a unique Fat Loss / Fat Burning training programme unique to you based on the Meltdown principles. This is a 12 week plan that is designed to evolve as your own conditioning improves and will see you burning fat and stoking up your metabolism right from the very first workout.
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.
At Ultimate Performance we understand that dieting can be hard especially at certain times of the month when sugar cravings are at an all time high and we have developed nutritional strategies which help to alleviate these cravings.
Water retention and weight gain are all too familiar at this time of the month too, we help our clients understand that this isn’t an increase in fat but just an increase in bloating from the water which will be gone within a couple of days.
We also have numerous supplement protocols which help to rid irritability and hot flushes.
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.
No, you don’t. You can have interesting quick to make food limited only by your cooking skills and imagination, within certain boundaries.
We are serious about our results but warm, friendly and welcoming to all our clients at UP Hong Kong. We invite you into the gym for a chat and to look around our Central Hong Kong 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.
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 fat?
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.
The precise and highly focused nature of our fat loss training is proven to burn calories long after you have left the gym.
Traditional workouts burn fat whilst you’re exercising, but as soon as you get off the treadmill your metabolism shifts back down to normal.
With the application of tried and scientifically tested systems we can guarantee that your metabolism stays elevated, and you therefore continue to burn body fat, for up to 38 hours after you have finished exercising!
One of the things that all our female clients comment upon after finishing their first Fat Burning workout is how for hours afterwards they feel as though they are “light on their feet”, “walking on clouds” and often “ravenously hungry”!
All fantastic signs that the overall metabolism has been stimulated to a level that they have never experienced before.
Such is our reputation in this field that we often get the clients that nobody else wants, those who have been everywhere and tried everything in an increasingly desperate attempt to be in great shape for the first time in their lives.
Have these people who once considered themselves “no hopers” been pleased with their results on the Hong Kong Meltdown programme? Let’s put it this way, we have had many hundreds of very happy female clients.

We are very proud of Meltdown’s reputation and unlike most personal trainers who will take on any client, no matter how wavering their commitment, at UP Hong Kong we have very limited spaces for personal training and we are very particular about who we take on as a client.
You must be ready, committed and want to change.
If we are a good fit, 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 that you can’t find the time for a 12-week period that is a tiny amount of time in the grand scheme of your life.
These are the things that we expect of you. If they sound too challenging, then we are sorry but Meltdown isn’t for you.
