PT studio operator Ultimate Performance reveals plans for three new sites

Bringing Ultimate Performance to my home county represents the fulfilment of a personal dream for me
– Nick Mitchell

Personal training company Ultimate Performance has revealed plans to add three new clubs to its growing UK portfolio.

The company will open a 3,000sq ft (279sq m) studio in central Leeds in January 2020, followed by further launches in Liverpool and central London (St Paul's).

Leeds is the company’s eighth location in the UK and will be operated alongside existing gyms in London City, Mayfair, Kensington, Manchester and Cheshire.

The UK openings are the latest stage in the company’s global expansion.

The company currently operates 19 gyms in nine countries.

According to Ultimate Performance founder and CEO, Nick Mitchell, opening a club in Leeds has been a "labour of love" for the West Yorkshire-born entrepreneur.

"Bringing Ultimate Performance to my home county is incredibly gratifying and represents the fulfilment of a personal dream for me, which I have long held since launching the U.P. business over a decade ago in London," he said.

"Growing up in the region, I’ve always felt deeply that Leeds is a world class city – and a world class city deserves a world class personal training facility to rival the likes of our global locations in Los Angeles, Washington DC, Hong Kong, Dubai and Sydney.

"What Ultimate Performance will bring to the city is real expertise, professionalism as a trusted advisor and a proven personal training and nutrition methodology that delivers life-changing results."

The first U.P. site opened in London in 2009.

The concept is based on offering bespoke personal training and nutrition – coupled with group training sessions and online PT packages – to "optimise health, fitness and body composition".
