Susan Younger, Lawyer

I had previously worked with personal trainers, but I didn’t feel listened to. It was as if I was going through the motions, completing programs that suited the trainers rather than myself.

So I started the 12 week programme with Luke Bremner Fitness following a recommendation from a friend, and after just a few short months my mobility, flexibility and strength (particularly core strength) has seen a great improvement.

My coach Alice is kind, encouraging, laid back and good at her job. I’ve found the service to be of high quality in not only helping me to get fit, but to keep fit and healthy. Alice works with me to create programs that I find stimulating, challenging and in line with how far I want to take my fitness.

I would highly recommend Luke Bremner Fitness as I have felt encouraged and supported, with proper advice from coaches who really listen to me and focus on what I am doing and why.

Evelyn and Brett, Self Employed and CEO

Since moving to Edinburgh 4 years previous to starting with Luke Bremner Fitness, we had adopted some bad habits with regards to our health and fitness, gaining weight and losing some of the fitness and strength that we had previously achieved.

With the cross-Forth swim on the horizon within several months, we wanted to change our relationship with the bad habits we had developed, improving our health and fitness specifically with our swimming and surfing in mind.

Within these months, we’ve both made real progress both in terms of losing body fat and becoming fitter and stronger. The compelling factor for us in working with Luke Bremner Fitness was the holistic approach to fitness and wellbeing, focusing on diet and fitness. It was very important for us to achieve not only a healthy body, but a healthy mind as part of the coaching.

Our coach Graeme has been brilliant to work with and has really tailored an effective programme to fit our goals and objectives. Regular measurements have both kept us accountable and encouraged us. We’ve been able to work out timings that suit our need for flexibility, and on occasions where we’ve needed to make a change, it’s been easily accommodated.

We’d definitely recommend Luke Bremner Fitness. The 12 week programme has helped us to make positive and sustainable changes to our overall fitness and health and we’ve had fun in the process.

Liam, IT Director

As a result of working long hours with travel commitments because of my career, along with the types of food I was eating, I was always feeling tired and lacking motivation. This is why I decided to contact Luke Bremner Fitness for help.

The service that Luke Bremner Fitness provided has ultimately changed my view on my everyday lifestyle. I now know which food groups to eat to allow me to feel fuller longer, giving me more energy throughout the day. Being provided with advanced nutritional knowledge was key for me. This personal training experience wasn’t just training for an hour at a studio, it is the expertise and knowledge that was provided based on my individual needs and goals.

As the training is 1 on 1, I didn’t need to worry about other people seeing me in a sweaty heap on the floor. I knew I was unhealthy but with every session came more encouragement and reinforcement that my goals that I had set in the initial consultation were obtainable and realistic – and with every session I felt like it was a step closer.

Working with Graeme, my coach, felt more like a friendship than going to a place to just “train”. The studio is always a fun/positive environment devoid of judgement and is a unique establishment that goes far beyond just helping you to achieve your health goals.

Graeme always had the time to talk about what I wanted to achieve, and built a plan according to and catering for my personal needs. As a result I became healthier and ultimately have now started down a path that is leading me away from hereditary heart disease and diabetes that run in my family. I look forward to training and working out to my next set of goals with Graeme.

Here is Liam’s 12 week transformation photograph showing the incredible results he achieved on our Fit & Healthy For Life Formula programme under the guidance of our coach Graeme. It’s hard to believe Liam achieved this is only a 12 week period; a true testimony to what is possible in a relatively short space of time.

Graham, Head of Global Service

Having tried many options to improve my health, such as short-term dieting, gym memberships and some exercise courses that produced no long-term benefits, I got in touch with Luke Bremner Fitness for one on one coaching.

I found the private aspect of the studio to be excellent, and after a short time working with my coach Graeme, my mindset changed. I learned that improving my health was not all about exercise (although that formed a large part of it). I learned how to eat properly, how my body responded to food and when to eat certain food groups. My body shape changed, not just losing weight but gaining strength and muscle.

What I like most about working with my coach was that it was not stereotypical personal training. Graeme came at it with a more thoughtful and analytical approach, working over the first few weeks to tailor the starting point and setting realistic and achievable goals. The time spent discussing nutrition was very valuable and helpful.

The quality of the training was exceptional and Graeme provided an environment where I was really motivated to push hard towards my fitness goals. Being able to help in all aspects of fitness from the intricacies of techniques for exercises through to nutrition. I made huge progress towards the goals we set out and this would not have been possible without the one on one sessions.

The results have been fantastic. The training is excellent, challenging and I have made tremendous progress in my fitness as a result.

I enjoy training at Luke Bremner Fitness with my coach Keith as the smaller private gym with 1-to-1 personal training enables a greater focus on my personal needs.

Without the constant interruption or waiting around for equipment typical of large commercial gyms,  I feel I get a lot more out of the sessions and don’t need to worry about feeling self-conscious around other gym users.

The quality of personal training at the studio is very high and as a result I’ve managed to lose over 3 stone in weight, have improved my general fitness level and my nutrition is so much better than it was.

I also no longer suffer with back pain from a previous injury nearly as much as I did and I’m enjoying exercise for the first time in my life.

I would recommend Luke Bremner Fitness and my coach Keith to anyone thinking of working with a personal trainer without any hesitation.
