Harry, Cybersecurity Consultant

Before applying to work with Luke Bremner Fitness, some of the concerns I had when I was considering personal training were the financial and time implications as well as the possibility of physically stepping outside of my comfort zone.

However, what I found after working with my trainer Calum was improved motivation surrounding exercise and diet, and willingness (not discomfort!) to do physical activity that pushed me.

I found the private, 1-1 approach with really positive interaction gave me the space to build my confidence whilst improving my fitness, unlike public gyms, which I have unfortunately found can be intimidating and unfriendly.

I’d definitely recommend Luke Bremner Fitness for anyone considering private personal training in Edinburgh. The training, encouragement, flexible approach, friendly staff and competent instruction have led me to happily continue with their service on an ongoing basis.

Chris and Emma, Estate Agents

Before we contacted Luke Bremner Fitness about working with a personal trainer, we had a gym membership and went to classes, but were still struggling to reach our weight loss goals on our own.

We felt we needed inspiration to learn new exercises to not only help us to achieve our short term goals, but also become a way of life for the long term.

Luke Bremner Fitness has been a wonderful experience, from our initial introduction to our last session, we have felt supported throughout the whole process.

Our coach was Duncan, who is a true asset to the team, providing well rounded knowledge and experience as well as technical ability, whilst giving us the confidence to train independently going forward. He has assisted in work related postural issues and rehabilitation of injuries, whilst giving solid nutrition and lifestyle coaching advice.

We’d definitely recommend Luke Bremner Fitness. The 12 week programme has given us the motivation to train smarter, harder and more efficiently to achieve our goals.

Susan, 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.
