Ahead of her wedding, Sarah Jayne Dunn turned to UP Fitness - with stunning results

After the birth of her son Stanley in 2016, Sarah Jayne Dunn thought she’d never regain her pre-pregnancy body again. But getting engaged to fellow actor Jonathan Smith was all the motivation she needed to try.

Like former Hollyoaks co-star Gemma Atkinson, who used UP to get in shape before Strictly Come Dancing, the 36-year-old actress turned to Ultimate Performance (UP) Fitness. 

The main thing I’ve learned is that it is totally achievable.

Known for getting maximum results in minimum time, the body transformation experts are renowned for their tailored programmes: combining bespoke training, nutritional diets and world-class equipment to help clients achieve a body they never thought possible - not to mention better health and an improved outlook.

The results speak for themselves. In just twelve weeks, Sarah lost 7kg, dropped two dress sizes and almost halved her body fat down to a lean and athletic 14%. Her pre-pregnancy body was back, and she walked down the aisle feeling stronger and more confident than ever before.

What’s more, her customised online weight training and nutrition plan meant she spent as little as three training sessions per week in the gym. Neither were was there any drastic or restrictive diets, and she even enjoyed two hen parties.

Now, in a frank and inspiring interview with UP Fitness, Dunn has revealed why crash diets aren’t the answer, the unexpected benefits of her transformation (better sleep for a start) and how EatUP has revolutionised the way she eats. Ultimately, how UP Fitness has fulfilled her dreams.

“It’s given me my life back. I’m not just a mummy anymore. I’m now Sarah again and that’s just priceless.”
