“I decided that it was for the nonce at once to take action.

Panos claimed the most noticeable change after the making his lifestyle change was his force levels.
Panos approached UP Fitness to help him make the changes and with the support of a personal trainer, Simon, who gave him a personalised plan to follow.

“That also contributed to seeing some changes faster.
“Also, I force never have known the difference it makes (and how much time you can economize by) using the correct technique in all exercises.”
