Before and after pictures are common place in the fitness industry and especially on the internet. A picture speaks louder than words and what better way for a trainer to show their ability than clear evidence of their skills displayed in their client’s physiques. However, a lot of personal training companies rely on pictures that are out dated, photo shopped or pictures done by trainers that are no longer with them! A lot of the time self proclaimed “best personal trainers in London” do not actually train anyone at all instead spending most of their day updating facebook and wondering where their motivation for training went.
At Definitive Physique every one of the team regularly trains and transforms clients and spends hours a week training themselfs. People hire us to get them real results in a short time frame and that is what we do. We achieve results in 6-8 weeks that might take others years. Here are some of our most recent success stories and what the clients had to say about us.
“I would consider myself pretty knowledgeable in training and nutrition for bodybuilding but I have never been able to get from being fairly lean to revealling my abs. I met Mike and was impressed by his vast knowledge and training methods, instantly knowing I was in very good hands.
Over the course of about 2 months training with Mike once a week and following his diet plans and workouts, I dropped my body fat percentage from 10% to 7%. I would have been delighted with that alone but I also packed on muscle at the same time. A lot of people will tell you it is impossible to get leaner (especially into single figure body fat percentages) while adding lean muscle. Those people obviously don’t train with Mike!
Mike helped me achieve the level of leaness I have been chasing for years and I would thank him for that and highly recomend Definitive Physique personal trainers for anyone looking to get leaner, bigger or stronger. Now I look forward to packing on some lean muscle.”
” Under the guidance of Definitive Physique’s personal trainers and their specific diet plan I went from 13.5% body fat to 8% body fat in just 8 weeks with 2kg lean mass gained. I would strongly recommend the team to anybody serious about getting into shape whatever their goals maybe. The team were professional, training was geared towards my targets, I was provided an insight into the science behind all my diet and I managed to break my personal best in all major compound exercises such Deadlifts.
I am extremely pleased with my results which I achieved following the diet only 60% of the time, so if you want a healthier, fitter, stronger and defined you, then Definitive Physique are the best in the business to help you achieve your goals.”
“Two years ago I made a decision to get serious about training and try to change the composition of my physique. My body weight came down from 93 kg’s to 80 kg (at its lowest) and although on appearance I looked marginally better; the truth was that my body fat % had not changed significantly and the bulk of my losses had been at the expense of lean muscle mass.
I had never previously believed in Personal Trainers as I had seen some of them in action at my local gyms; the people that took the services of these trainers often did not improve significantly. Then I came across Definitive Physique.
It was apparent that Definitive Physique were able to produce results for their clients in a relatively short space of time. They were able to transform a friend of mine in 8 weeks. I would not have been believed the results from the before and after pictures had I not personally known him. I decided to set up a consultation and from the outset Mike Hoad and Mike Porter were extremely professional in their manner and really tried to understand what it was that I wanted to achieve.
I undertook a 6 week programme to shed get my body fat down to sub 10% and the programme was carefully constructed by Definitive Physique and then continuously monitored to ensure everything was on track. The training sessions were definitely some of the most physically and mentally challenging activities I had partaken in. One particular legs session took me as close to hell as you can get on Earth but it’s a great feeling afterwards to know that you’ve got through it. Mike Hoad was fantastic in motivating me and carrying me through some of the sessions; there is no way I could have learned to push my body on my own or with any other personal trainer.
The result of the programme was my body fat falling from 14% to 8%. I lost fat from those stubborn pockets that I had long given up hope of losing and fat that had been sitting there for over 10 years from in-disciplined eating. The conditioning from the workouts results in my heart rate dropping to an amazing 56 bpm which was particularly impressive because besides my 3 hours a week training with Mike Hoad I was doing no other form of exercise.
Most importantly the 6 weeks with Definitive Physique taught me the philosophies to train towards goals in the gym that will be carry me for a number of years. My initial thoughts on the price being too high were entirely wiped out and in hindsight I would have paid even more for what I achieved and learnt. I would highly recommend Definitive Physique to anyone that is serious about achieving goals.”
The best thing about this last picture is he’s not finished yet! As you can see he has packed on lean muscle whilst maintaining a low body fat. Despite his extremely unsociable working hours Vadim has done incredibly well in a short time period. He has put on 5kg of muscle in his first 8 weeks of training. Also, his strength has sky rocketed in all major lifts. He has gone from deadlifting 60kg to 130kg, benching 50kg to 80kg , 4 rep chin ups to 12 reps and sauatting 40kg to 100kg. Our personal trainers get results quick and the best is yet to come from Vadim!
