"Hello all, This post is for the Gamma Project developed by Justin Maguire. I've been working for 1.5 months now and it's been a revelation for me. It's by far the most comprehensive online training program I tried.. The unique thing of the program is the biofeedback of your own body. Working with biomarkers (heart rate variability and fasting bloodglucose) gives me more insight in when to step on the gas or hit the brakes. Even though Im a trainer/ therapist myself I always see the weaknesses in my own program. Its nicer when someone else with more experience is responsible for the programming. No need to second guess the program only read and execute it. Early in the morning I send my measurements and within minutes I get an answer, the program and my diet. Whenever I text Justin with questions regarding my training, diet or supplements, in minutes he'll text back. One of the things that strikes me most is the increased sensation and awareness in my body. Sessions are sharper, there is more awareness during the sessions and more focus throughout the day. Sometimes you simply feel that there is no energy, but you hear the tiny voice in your head that you need to train. Sometimes for the better, more for the worse. I have often noticed when training when I dont feel like training, I get less from my training in general. Less intent, less focus, less drive. Now that I work with HRV and blood glucose measurements, the quality of training has gone up rapidly. I recommend everybody to work with his program because you will learn a lot more about your body. Whether you want to become leaner or become more muscular you will not regret this program. Thanks bud!"
"On 3rd Feb 2012, while skiing at Whistler, another skier ran into me from behind, breaking both bones in my lower right let and breaking my right shoulder in two places. I was in a wheelchair for over 4 months and was unable to walk without crutches for over a year. Four operations and two years later, I was finally ready to start down the road to recovery. The help and support I received with Justin Maguire meant that my surgeon signed me off a full 3 months earlier than he had expected. He was going to prescribe 3 months of physiotherapy. Instead, he told me to keep doing whatever I had been doing as my recovery had been remarkable fast. 'Whatever I had been doing' was receiving personal training from Justin. Just look at me now."
What do you feel that you have achieved:
Like lots of guys, I was in search of the holy grail of dropping body fat AND building muscle size for that muscular lean look. Having wasted year after year achieving one or the other but mostly neither, I have dropped body fat from 26% to 12% and added several kg of muscle, all in the space of a few months. Yes it is possible, but you need to know what you are doing. Justin inspires total confidence in his methods.
What have you learned:
Working with UP has transformed my dietary habits – I cannot actually remember what I ate before I met Justin! I have learnt how to shop, prepare, and eat in a way that is healthy and sustainable. For this alone I am hugely grateful. I also got to learn about my personality type. Justin identified in me early on a very strong work ethic and accordingly he pushed me hard from the word go. He consistently gets more out of me than I ever thought possible.
What's next for you:
6 months on i am still training with UP. I have achieved so much already but in many ways the journey has only just started. I would be mad to stop now. Meanwhile, I recently got my sister to start training with Justin too. It’s wonderful to see her outlook change now that I’m a veteran!
What would you be willing to tell others about your experience with us:
I cannot recommend Justin, highly enough. Everything about the set up shouts excellence and professionalism. It is not cheap but worth every penny especially if you are prepared to give it everything. Aside from his vast knowledge, with Justin I know I have someone who cares as much (and sometimes more!) about my goals as I do.
"I have been training with Justin for 12 weeks now and under his guidance I have made a lot of progress. My body fat has decreased from just over 26 per cent to 16 per cent in the 12 week period, with my muscle mass remaining the same, proving I have and am losing fat all the time. As I continue to train with Justin I feel confident in reaching my new goal of less than 10 per cent body fat. With regards to training itself, Justin pushes me hard each session but always looks at how I move to ensure that I complete full range of movements with each exercise, and if necessary willget me on the massage bench to work out any niggles I may have. He has instilled a confidence in me with my training and I amazed how I have progressed, in strength and ability, and I have certainly conquered my fear of certain exercises that i had before. If you want a trainer who will both push you and look after you when you do train then look no further than Justin."
"Having been working on my own with a local PT here in Istanbul I was looking for somebody to review my eating & training plan with a view to making sure I was on the right track. I managed to get an appointment to speak to Justin on Skype and having sent him a document with all my details and food diary we then spent an hour on the phone. It was clear that despite only scratching the surface in the hour we allocated, that there is not much that Justin doesn't know about body composition. I have worked in the fitness industry for 25 years and met my fair share of so called experts - many of whom don't come through when questioned critically. Justin clearly adopts a structured and scientific approach to body composition changes and offers no nonsense advice that is most likely to achieve the desired results. I will certainly be working further with Justin to make sure that I achieve my goals and get the best returns from my time and effort invested."
What do you feel that you have achieved:
The training I went through absolutely changed my life – not only did the change in physical appearance make me feel a lot more confident about myself, but the level of support and education that came along with it really helped to maintain changes in a manageable and enjoyable way once the program had finished.
What have you learned:
I learned that my physical limits far exceed what I once believed to be true. I have also learned to take responsibility for my physical and mental state and to have higher standards for myself.
What's next for you:
Men’s health magazine cover!
What would you be willing to tell others about your experience with us:
That the money spent with Justin was one of the most worthwhile investments I have ever made. It’s not cheap, but if you put the level of effort in that the price tag deserves, you can make long standing, wholesale changes to your physical and mental wellbeing that will serve you in all aspects of everyday life.
What do you feel that you have achieved:
My goal was improved fitness and I can see increased definition overall, my arms actually fill the sleeves of my t-shirts. My strength has measurably increased, and I am now able to work confidently with free weights. And my posture has improved! Because my trainer Justine prepares my programme in advance, I always know exactly what I am doing in the gym each day, so my time is used to the best effect, without having to spend hours.
What have you learned:
I have always eaten well, but since my trainer emphasizes nutrition with some supplementation, I have started eating even better.
What would you be willing to tell others about your experience with us:
With a small degree of effort, you will definitely see results. I would definitely recommend to anyone at any level – my boss has booked her first visit, to happen shortly!
Why you contacted Justin in the first place:
I had become bored with my regular gym and running program. I wanted to improve my fitness and strength, learn how to train in order to get results and generally improve my body toning.
What do you feel that you have achieved:
I have re-invigorated my desire to train. My body shape and tone is vastly improved and I am feeling much stronger. My body feels fitter and healthier all round.
What have you learned:
I understand the importance of maintaining a healthy diet and having a program designed around the whole body. The finer details of controlled movement and utilising the body’s full range when exercising.
What's next for you:
I will continue to train with Justin, initially at a reduced rate due to other commitments then stepping up into the New Year ready for my beach beautiful body!
What would you be willing to tell others about your experience with us:
If you are willing to commit to the discipline and time required this is an excellent experience. I was serious about rewriting my training program and wanted to improve my physique. Justin has educated me in how to train and how to maintain a healthy body (and mind). I have really enjoyed the additional focus. The sessions have been purposeful and hard work yet at the same time enjoyable. The whole atmosphere is supportive, there is a community feel with a shared interest in getting results for all involved.
Why you contacted Justin in the first place:
I have been passionate about fitness for some time and wanted to take my training to the next level. Justin’s results focused, no nonsense approach and high calibre personal trainer convinced me this was the place to come.
What do you feel that you have achieved:
I got into the best shape of my life and acquired a wealth of training and nutritional knowledge that I’ll be able to continue applying in the future.
What have you learned:
All the hard work and effort in the world won’t get you results if you don’t have the knowledge and experience to achieve a goal. However, combining them means it will be a matter of when not whether you will get there.
What's next for you:
I plan to keep training hard and continue applying the knowledge I’ve acquired during my time with Justin, in order to achieve my personal and physique related goals. What would you be willing to tell others about your experience with us:
The gym is a great place to train thanks to the range and quality of equipment and no nonsense atmosphere. Justin is approachable and happy to help out. Justin was a pleasure to work with. He has an incredible level of knowledge which means he explains the reasoning behind the exercise and nutritional strategies being implemented. He pushed me hard every session and introduced me to a number of new exercises and techniques, so that I always left the gym feeling like I’d learned something new. On top of this he was always contactable and he genuinely committed to help me achieve my goals. Awesome trainer and a great guy.
"Justin is a very talented personal trainer who knows the mechanics of weight training, nutrition and muscle development inside out. Justin tailored our sessions to my individual needs and capabilities in a manner that always pushed my boundaries to progress and ultimately achieve remarkable results, whilst at the same time making training a very fun experience overall. I would recommend Justin without reservation to any one that wants to transform his body"
"They say some have to reach a point in their lives when they hit rock bottom or there is something so profound that happens which triggers a catalyst for change. For me it was when I was out shopping (because none of my clothes fit any more) I remember trying on clothes in one of those dressing rooms where there are mirrors completely encircling you 360 degrees and caught sight of the folds of fat in my back, the size of my rear, and my protruding gut. It was like someone came and slapped me across the face with a reality stick. I knew I need to make a change and make it now! When I first met Justin or 'J' as I like to call him, he seemed a bit imposing given the sheer size of him! I remember thinking, 'this guy is going to pummel me', which truthfully is what I needed. The first week of training with J was such hard work, that after each session I would go accross the street from the gym, sit on a bench in the square and rest with my head in my hands for half an hour to 45 minutes. I physically did not have the dexterity to drive my motorbike home without fear of crashing; and when I did make it home, I would immediately sleep for a couple hours to recuperate, but I kept coming back for more. I could tell that J knew his stuff, and that I would see results if I stuck with it. And stick with I did and the results became apparent from the second week onwards and have been non-stop ever since. When I stared working out with Justin, I had been away from exercise for a good three to four years and it showed. I was tipping the scales at just over 200 lbs (92kg) and sporting 38in waist. That may not sound like much, but for an ex-dancer who's always been 145/150 lbs (65kg) with a 29/30in waist, that's a drastic difference. With the help, support and dedication of Justin, I have now reached a lean 72kg with a 30in waist, and gained some solid muscle as well. My strength has also increased, from not being able to do one pull up to be multiple and from not being able to do one dip unassisted again to being able to to do multiple. Although the workouts are challenging they are also fun and I have learnt heaps. Justin is a living testament to the fact that you can work hard, be professional and still have fun, even on legs day. Justin has a unique way of building a strong relationship with his clients, based on trust and an understanding of their specific needs. There is no one that I trust more than Justin, and I know that if I go to him with a problem he will always come up with a unique solution. If something is not working he adapts it to something more suitable to help you achieve your goals. He shows a genuine interest in my well-being and makes sure that I have the tools (knowledge and skills) needed to continue to maintain my results and a solid foundation on which to continue to build going forward. And although we do have fun while working out that's not to say that Justin is a pushover. He tells it like it is, and doesn't let you get away with trying to cheat, all with a smile of course!"
"I just wanted to take a minute to thank you and Pradeep for coaching me through the past 18 weeks while prepping for the WBFF New England show. During this time not only did my body rapidly change but I was able to learn a lot from your programs, dietary strategies as well as Skype consults that we had. The program allowed me to run my business, spend ample time with my young family and still do the required work to reach my goal. Everything was presented on time as promised and in an organized concise manner, making it easy to follow. I appreciate the personalized approach and attention to detail presented in all of your work. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with you directly over the next 9-12 months to further my knowledge and improve upon my physique. Thanks for all your help guys!"
"I went to Justin after a few years of a very unhealthy lifestyle, both nutritionally and physically. One look at Justin was sufficient to convince me that he was the man I was looking for to help me achieve my goal of body transformation. He clearly walked the walk, and after a brief consultation it became clear that he also knew exactly what he was talking about. I signed up and spent the next 6 weeks getting mauled into shape and capitalising on his encyclopaedic knowledge of nutrition, hypertrophy and body mechanics in between brutal sets. I am naturally curious, and Justin always answered my questions in a manner that showcased both his nuanced understanding of and extreme passion for all things body composition-related. His intensity and focus during my training was such that I could not help but emulate it, which resulted in a considerably more challenging and beneficial training programme than any I had previously undertaken. No one can convince me that a layman without world-class understanding of training could get similar benefits working out alone as they could with someone like Justin there to guide their progress, correct subtle flaws in technique, and encourage and motivate them throughout their training. I used to work out a few years ago, and my experience with Justin made me realize that whilst the generic programmes you come across on bodybuilding sites are better than nothing, they really don’t compare with getting real help from experts. I have now completed my 6-week programme and have signed up for another 6. I feel more energetic and lighter on my feet. I am stronger, more muscular and leaner than I have ever been, and look like a different person. A final anecdote that merits inclusion in this review, since I think that it embodies Justin’s character, is about his bodybuilding competition during the time he worked with me. In order to perform at his best in the NABBA Central British Championship, Justin was subsisting on the kind of diet that most people not only wouldn’t, but couldn’t endure. And yet despite depriving his body to such an inhumane degree, he still seemed to be able to remain as focused, intense and motivational as usual during our training sessions. He then went off, won his competition, and resumed training as normal. That’s a day in life of Justin. In sum, the combination of his innovative and precise training and dietary programmes, his passion and dedication, and amiable yet no-bullshit attitude, helped me achieve my goals and is testament to Justin’s reputation as a superb personal trainer.""
"Having trained and been fit and active my entire life I though I knew what intense productive training was about. I thought I knew about healthy eating and good nutrition. That was until I met Justin Maguire. Justin is an absolute guru when it comes to getting the best results in the shortest time. He knows the human body and what is needed in training and nutrition/supplementation to not only build a strong healthy body but to help build a strong healthy mind. Justin is a lot more than a personal trainer. He is a life coach and someone who's passion and dedication to his clients is unsurpassed. He truly in inspiration. I have met and worked with a couple top trainers in my time but Justin takes approachability, dedication, knowledge and insight to an entire new level. If you are serious about getting in to top shape and transforming your body (and hence your life) then I could not think of another individual I would recommend in an instant. Having Justin in my corner for training, nutrition, sports injuries (I had before I came to Justin) and any advice has been an amazing. I am injury free and leaner and stronger than I have ever been in my life at the age of 36. His results (and mine) speak for themselves. I am happy for Justin to pass on my details if you have any more questions. He is someone everyone serious about fitness and heath should have in their corner to realise their potential and more."
Why you contacted Justin in the first place:
Justin was recommended to me by Charles Poliquin, Justin asked me to contact him if I wanted to have a consultation with him which I'm glad I did.
What do you feel that you have achieved:
TOTAL BODY TRANSFORMATION
What have you learned:
A lot about nutrition and how to train SMARTER for optimal results
What's next for you:
Continual progression to get to 76kg at a 7-9 body fat percentage. Lean, fit and strong
What would you be willing to tell others about your experience with us:
Training with Justin at UP is something I have never experienced elsewhere before. Justin is a highly knowledgeable personal trainer, everything is followed very closely he makes me feel as if what I'm doing is important to him too, he is a very cool giant with his heart in his hands.. But having said that You will be pushed beyond belief, broken down into pieces and will be stretched (not only physically). Sweating, pain, screaming and swearing are all part of the package. But the results I have attained in terms of strength gain and physical transformation speak for themselves. Go and train there ONLY if you are ready to get RESULTS that you never thought was possible before.
"Justin really knows his stuff, an imposing man mountain of a man, to begin with I was a little shocked and tentative with the amount of supplements I had to introduce to my diet and the change of eating habits plus the volume of food was a shock to the system. However giving up booze was surprisingly easier than I expected, simply for the reason that I was investing such money into acquiring my desired shape, these sacrifices had to be made. It was a complete education, a change in approach to diet, supplementation and the workout itself, made me make gains very quickly, Justin wouldn't let me slack at all, always pushing me to get the most out of our time together, with a protein/glutamine shake on hand at the finish, to replenish my body before showering. I wont lie some days were very, very tough, pushing me to places I hadn't been before, however, the final result was more than worth it!"
"The experience I had at the Hypertophy/Fat Loss week is one that I'll always see as a fantastic time with a long lasting impact on my career. The level of knowledge and the passion for teaching by Justin, Chris and the gang was inspiring to say the least. The information received on training and nutrition was relevant and communicated clearly in ways which made it very understandable even though I knew very little on a lot of the topics at the beginning of the week. The most important aspect of the course was that all I learnt I have been able to apply to my clients with great success within days of finishing the course. I would highly recommend Justin and his team to all personal trainers as being educated by them is an experience not to be missed."
"If you want to pursue your training goal in a friendly, welcoming and professional environment then I suggest you need look no further. Without doubt Justin has delivered and exceeded my expectations, Justin is educated to a level that will get you the results you are after in the fastest possible time. Whilst clearly they all have physiques to mirror their knowledge everyone that I've spoken to so far can't help you enough, either by offering advice or passing on tips and knowledge. So far I'm 6 weeks into a 12 week course with Justin Maguire and have already dropped significant body fat and gained lean muscle. I'm not only working towards my targets but Justin shares with me as to why my body is changing which is invaluable advice and knowledge. He's a great guy and I couldn't have asked for a better trainer, well you're not going to argue with a guy that's 6' 4" high and 6' 4" wide..... Don’t expect that just because you're paying a premium and you've seen the transformations in the magazines and website that all you have to do is turn up, pay your money and in a few weeks you'll be cover model fit, you have to work your nuts off in the gym, follow the nutritional plan that's setup specifically for you, rest and take the right supplementation. If you're not prepared to sign yourself up for that then I suggest you keep talking about it until you really want it!!!!! If you're going to do it, do it once and do it properly.........I can't recommend Justin enough......"
