Clare, Administrator

This is just a message to say thank you to Luke Bremner Fitness for a great year of personal training with Alex.

I turned 40 last April and decided to improve my fitness and I’m 100% glad I chose your personal training service.

From the initial point of contact with Sam, the call with Luke and the sessions with Alex, it has all been extremely professional.

I’ve always had confidence in Alex’s professional ability and his kindheartedness and positive nature has been really good.

I can visibly see the changes in my body and friends and family have remarked on this as well.

I just wanted to send this message to say how much I enjoy training with Alex and the positive difference he has made in my life.

Kenny, Retailer

When I applied to Luke Bremner Fitness for personal training, I wanted to find out more about working on my body strength in specific areas as I had started to experience pain due to health reasons.

My trainer Alex’s methods of personal training are fantastic. When I started working with him, I had very restricted movement in both shoulders – from years of neglect, and previous sports injuries. This had got to the stage where I, more often than not, needed assistance with getting a coat or jacket on.

After working with Alex for just 3 months, I have almost complete mobility back in my right shoulder and arm and around 90% in the left. The change is remarkable.

As well as those specific changes, my overall mobility, posture and strength have increased significantly, which has had an excellent effect on my overall health and wellbeing. I can now put coats on again without thinking about or fearing it!

I’d definitely recommend Luke Bremner Fitness for anyone considering private personal training in Edinburgh. With a plan built around my unique circumstances, excellent identification of issues with body weakness and a path to correcting and setting them right, and a thoughtful and holistic approach that I enjoy immensely.

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.
