Ultimate Performance trainers are radically different from what you’ve probably been used to. We stand apart in an industry full of glorified ‘gym babysitters’ and ‘rent-a-friend’ trainers.
Yes, our team ticks all the usual boxes any high-end gym should – but we demand more – and we deliver results that no other fitness business can because of it.
When it comes to proving our cerebral skills, our personal trainers have the appropriate certifications. But the size and scale of Ultimate Performance means we have a dedicated, full-time internal Education team whose only job is to work on keeping our team up to date with all the latest research and thinking.
We are the only personal training company in the world working on collaborative research projects with the likes of Cambridge University, or funding our own ground-breaking research in partnership with the University of California.
These are relevant things for any potential client, or indeed trainer, to consider when looking at Ultimate Performance, but they are not our ‘secret sauce’.
We have built the best results producing ‘machine’ in the world. The fact that we are the only global personal training business in existence speaks volumes.
We have trained tens of thousands of clients globally with our proven methods. Not to mention princes of the realm, Hollywood royalty, sports stars, and the billionaire owners of some of the world’s biggest companies. So, you would think that at this point, we’d tell you that we only hire the best and most accomplished trainers. You would be wrong.
Becoming a trainer at Ultimate Performance, however, is a tremendously difficult task. It far outstrips the recruitment process in any other gym globally. But it doesn’t mean that we recruit ‘finished products’.
We only hire about 1 in 100 job applicants. We put them through online exams, written case studies, several rounds of interviews, and assessed gym floor practicals. Why? We are looking for very specific characteristics.

Yes, we judiciously select the highest calibre candidates from across the globe. Yet it’s more than mere ‘ability’ that we look for. What we really seek is raw potential. It’s ‘attitude over aptitude.’
We want trainers who desire long-term careers. We look for people who have no issue taking constructive criticism on the chin. We prioritise those candidates who actively seek to work as part of a team, not the ‘lone wolf’ trainer ubiquitous in the fitness industry.
Of course, we want some of the characteristics that always set a great trainer apart. A trainer who ‘walks the talk’, demonstrates a lifelong love affair with exercise, and has a mindset to take our clients’ results personally. But this alone isn’t enough.
Our trainers excel when they embrace the unique system and culture we have built at Ultimate Performance.
Our trainers don’t have sessions targets. They don’t do sales or marketing. The singular goal of our trainers is to master their craft. They are incentivised solely on the one metric that matters – delivering results and return on investment for the client.
They do this by working within an ecosystem that keeps them accountable and leaves nowhere to hide.
Working with a trainer in almost all traditional gym settings is an extremely arbitrary process. What happens when things go awry? Pretty much nothing. There is certainly no monitoring of outcomes or weekly performance checks.
Our trainers are held accountable at every level for ensuring you achieve exceptional results. We monitor everything. Nothing is left to chance.
We see when our trainers go above and beyond for their clients. We reward them when we are presented with the evidence. Conversely, we know instantly when a trainer isn’t delivering. This allows us to take immediate action to course-correct.
Elite personal training is an incredibly labour-intensive, people-management job. Done correctly, it means that we are effectively managing people (our trainers) to help them manage people (our clients).
Our technology gives us the edge in this sphere. Everything that we do is tracked. It’s not just your workouts and your diet, should you choose to want to track that. We record every metric of progress and performance for trainers and clients in our own app.
It’s not just a white-label platform from some remote tech developer. It is an app we have created ourselves with an in-house technology team of 30 engineers.
It systemises accountability. It leverages our data to enhance our methods. Most of all, it gives our trainers a tool to deliver measurable results for clients consistently across the globe.
