Nick lost 21kg training three hours a week with his expert personal trainer at Ultimate Performance Cheshire.
Eleven weeks earlier, getting in shape felt impossible for 37-year-old Nick. Especially with his hectic life running his own wealth management firm.
He always made the excuse that he was too busy to exercise as a father and director at Fidenti Mortgages.
But his wife and business partner, Corrie, showed him what was possible with her 20kg transformation at U.P. Cheshire.
It motivated him to invest in his health and start his own transformation at the private Alderley Edge gym.
The results were nothing less than sensational.
"Ultimate Performance has made a huge difference! Physically, I have gone down from a 46- inch suit size down to a 40.
"I have gone from a 36-38 waist down to a 30-32-inch waist. I have lost just under three and a half stone – 47lbs (21.5kg)."
Nick had suffered from injuries for years, and recently his doctor had recommended a knee replacement.
Faced with the prospect of an operation generally associated with older age at just 37, Nick knew he had to get fit and take some weight off his knees.
He trained for just 35 sessions over three months and managed to bring down his weight from 97.5kg to 76kg. He brought his body fat down to healthy levels during that time too.
A big part of the problem in the past had been his diet. Before joining U.P., it consisted mostly of unhealthy snacks.
"I'm a business owner. My wife and I own a business, and we are very busy. With that comes stress and bad habits, choosing takeaways instead of cooking meals to save time, and drinking too much.
"My wake-up call came when I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my right knee. I had a motorbike accident and snapped my quad tendon.
"The consultant said to me a month before I started the transformation that if I were 50 years old, they would have replaced my knee. But I'm 37, and I am too young for that.
"I have followed U.P. for about six years now, I followed Nick Mitchell and Ultimate Performance worldwide, I have always really fancied it."
His wife Corrie's amazing transformation at U.P. got him to finally sign up and carve out time from his packed schedule to invest in his health.
He really wanted to improve his quality of life, especially with his children and wife. Looking great and enjoying the confidence that comes with it was an added bonus.
Nick trained three times a week at U.P.'s Congleton Road gym and did his own cardio in between.
The husband-wife duo also did a group strongman class together at U.P. on a Saturday morning.
This consisted of high-intensity intervals and resistance training combined for 45 minutes.
"Collectively, we have lost six and a half stone between us (41kg)! That is more weight than our children!
"We have a three-year-old and a five-year-old, and U.P.'s transformation gave us a new lease of life.
"Both of us have so much more energy. I can run with my children. I am fitter; it is just a better life completely.
"Also, I think the mental clarity you get with the quality of nutrition and training here at U.P.; it just gives you a better life.
"Corrie's results were absolutely outstanding. I was so proud of her, and for her to overcome her injuries and to be able to train around her injuries was a huge motivation for me."
Nick followed a personalised high-protein, moderate-fat, and low-carbohydrate diet to begin with.
His trainer then helped him slowly reintroduce carbohydrates to fuel his intense workouts.
The theory behind his tailored diet was to eat natural & whole foods – nothing complex, just a very simple approach to nutrition.
"I just wanted a six-pack, I have never had one. We had less than 12 weeks to do this transformation as I needed to finish before Christmas.
"My trainer, Louis, said, 'We can do this in 11 weeks – you just need to trust me' And we have done it, and I am absolutely speechless.
"When we talk about return on investment, U.P. is expensive; there is no getting around it. But you get what you pay for – you really, really do."
"If there was a machine that you could step into on day one and have the feeling that I had at the end of 12 weeks and see yourself, you would sign up. You would find the money, and you would just do it.
"I have trained with other trainers in the past. I can honestly say nothing compares to U.P. with the care and guidance I have been given, and the results I have achieved."
