Before’n’After #103 Interview – Luca Leimgruber

Before'n'After #103 Interview – Luca Leimgruber

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your everyday life

I'm 23 years old and before my B'n'A I worked as a studio manager for Fit/One in Munich and Nuremberg. My everyday life was characterized by stress, constant availability and countless hours in the car. My training, nutrition and performance suffered as a result. In March I flew to Thailand and decided to change something. Quit my job and booked the Before'n'After program with Wolfgang. A lot has happened since then. I started training again, started eating consistently well, moved back to Tübingen and enrolled to study business psychology.

How did you come across the Before'n'After program?

Through the seminars with Wolfgang at the YPSI.

Which sport did you do before the Before'n'After program?

I've always done a lot of sport and tried out a lot. It doesn't matter whether it's judo and karate as a child or later basketball, American football and kickboxing. When I turned 16, I signed up for a gym.

What motivated you to start and follow the program?

There's a lot. A job change and the vacation afterwards in Thailand were the initial spark to want to change something about the current situation and well-being.

How did your sleep develop during the program?

I didn't even know what it meant to sleep well. Before my B'n'A, sleep was a lost part of the day for me. Now I fall asleep well, sleep through the night and wake up refreshed.

How did your energy level develop during the program?

Exponentially. As a result of the change, I now wake up refreshed without an alarm clock and am again able to perform in everyday life and in training.

What was the biggest change for you?

The constant accessibility via mobile phone and co. to take off To deal with it consciously in everyday life and to do without it before going to bed.

What's your favorite breakfast?

The rotation of my breakfast allows me to consistently eat a lot and well. Three of my options for this are grilled burger patties with nuts or seeds, trout with avocado and eggs with mushrooms.

How often and for how long did you train?

Two days of training (OK/UK) followed by a day off. 4.5 days a week, never longer than an hour.

What's your favorite exercise?

My favorite exercise keeps changing. A chain is as strong as its weakest link. The exercise I expect to improve the most from is my favorite.

Have you also done endurance training to lose fat? 

No. Only intervals twice a week and only in the last 3 of the 9 weeks of the transformation.

What is the reaction of your environment to the change in the last few weeks/months?


And what happens now?

90 pounds with 5% body fat.
