Reena, Doctor

I wanted to lose weight and I lacked motivation, so I contacted Luke Bremner Fitness in the hopes of working with someone to get me into a routine and help with my nutrition.

I worked with Dan, who has great experience and made training very enjoyable, especially given the lockdown restrictions.

Coach Dan is absolutely brilliant – the only reason I stopped is because I moved back home to London. Dan designs a programme suited to each individual and looks at the entirety of the person. He also gives important nutritional information and kept talking to me about it so it was always in my mind.

Dan is a great asset – he cares about each person he trains, he keeps repeating himself so it sticks and he is constantly improving himself so it improves our training.

Absolutely 5 stars!

I now have better posture, flexibility, and stamina – and I even learned boxing, which I love!

I highly recommend Dan and Luke Bremner Fitness for anyone looking for professional and private one-to-one personal training in Edinburgh.

Jill, Surgeon

I contacted Luke Bremner Fitness because I wanted to improve my muscle tone, posture and overall fitness.

As a surgeon, I often spend all day operating and find that my back and shoulders can be very painful.

I also wanted to make a conscious effort to get and hopefully stay fit to try and prevent issues in the future.

Starting personal training with my coach Dan has been one of the best things I have done in 2020. My back pain is actually gone!!! And my posture is noticeably improved.

Dan has helped build my core strength, thereby curing my back pain and improving my posture. I still have a lot further I want to go and I know Dan will help me achieve my goals.

Dan is a fabulous trainer and really understands the anatomy, physiology and pathology required to be a truly professional trainer.

I highly recommend Dan and Luke Bremner Fitness for anyone looking for professional and private one-to-one personal training in Edinburgh.

Paul, Self-Employed

Before working with my Luke Bremner Fitness coach Calum, I was the heaviest I’d ever been. My diet was completely off and I’d been sedentary for months.

Originally I was worried that my incredibly busy work schedule would impede my ability to make it into my sessions. But Calum was always so flexible and understanding.

Having worked with personal trainers all over the world, I’ve never come across someone as talented as Calum. His knowledge of body systems, exercises, and functional mobility was honestly the best I’ve ever experienced.

On top of that Calum had such a great personality that it made the sessions not only effective in terms of fitness goals but absolutely enjoyable as well.

By the end of my time with Calum, I was sleeping like a rock for the first time in a long time, I was eating much more healthily and my strength increased so much.

I felt lighter on my feet, I had so much more energy during the day that I’d almost cut out coffee entirely. (I used to live on the stuff just to make it through the day).

Clothes are fitting better than ever and I just feel confident going through my workday.

I need to travel frequently, but if there was a way to travel with Calum, I’d take him with me on all my trips. The service overall from Luke Bremner Fitness is just so friendly and approachable. Luke and the team treat you like a valued team member, not a number on a spreadsheet – and I really appreciate that.

I would absolutely, without a doubt recommend working with Luke Bremner Fitness for anyone considering personal training in Edinburgh.


I would imagine that the Luke Bremner Fitness studio is the best of its kind in Edinburgh, or possibly even Scotland!

I’ve recently finished my initial 12-week programme with Alex and had a very professional experience throughout.

It’s evident that the team’s knowledge and understanding of how to help clients achieve their health & fitness goals is very high and I’m pleased to say I achieved the goals Alex and I set out together.

My whole experience with Luke Bremner Fitness has been first class. It’s an outstanding service which can be completely relied upon and I look forward to continuing to work with Alex long term.

Sarah, Actuary

I had never worked with a personal trainer before, so was a little apprehensive initially about the financial and time commitment and how effective it would be.

I really enjoyed the initial programme and have continued my training with Calum since. The private, 1-1 approach means I don’t feel self-conscious and can focus on my training.

Calum is always really helpful and encouraging. He tailors the workout to me and mixes it up to keep it interesting and challenging, even over the internet during the lockdown. I no longer dread going to the gym!

I have lost weight and toned up a lot since starting my training. Also, my persistent shoulder pain from sitting at a desk all day long has considerably reduced and my posture improved.

I would definitely recommend Luke Bremner Fitness to anyone looking for personal training in Edinburgh to improve their fitness and get in shape.

Murray, Web Design Student

Luke and the team are truly excellent.

My coaches Alex and Calum are extremely professional and not only focus on fitness, but lifestyle, health and well-being.

I joined the 12 week transformation programme and as you can see from the progress photo below my body shape changed dramatically over the 12 week period.

I lost a lot of weight and my overall health and fitness have improved greatly. I now feel now more energised and motivated in my day-to-day life.

For anyone looking for personal training in Edinburgh I couldn’t recommend Luke Bremner Fitness highly enough!
