After 20 years of no exercise and eating whatever I liked, I found myself with a poor level of fitness and unable to play with my 3 young children without getting out of breath. In addition, as a result of my bad eating habits I found myself gaining weight and I knew I needed to do something about this.
At age 35 I was aware that if I left the decision to make changes any longer it was going to become exceptionally difficult, and following a recommendation for Luke Bremner Fitness from a friend, I decided to get in touch.
Initially, I was apprehensive about investing in the 12 week programme for financial reasons, but after going to the studio and finding a friendly and professional team ready to tailor my training programme to suit my needs and goals, I decided to go for it, and was paired with Jon as my coach.
During the programme I found my fitness and endurance levels increased very quickly, I lost weight consistently, and gained knowledge and understanding of how best to eat and exercise to achieve my goals.
All sessions were private and 1-2-1 with my coach, and I found them to be non-judgemental, flexible and highly motivating and encouraging; all notable benefits of training at Luke Bremner Fitness.
From my initial meeting right through to the end of the programme I felt that all the staff had a genuine interest in helping me achieve my goals. Everyone was very helpful and encouraging and the service provided is very professional, personalised, easy to access and great value. Training with Luke Bremner Fitness is easily the best decision I have ever made relating to my health and fitness!
Not only have I have achieved my weight loss goals and greatly improved my fitness and health, but my habits and attitudes as to how I treat and look after my body have totally changed for the better. I now feel confident how to eat properly and train properly to maintain my progress in the long run. I don’t think I can emphasize strongly enough how transformational this 12 week training programme has been!
Before I started my programme at Luke Bremner Fitness I was concerned I was too unfit to train with a trainer. I was worried I would not be able to do the exercises and get the results I wanted. I was also nervous that the training and nutritional changes would not work as so many things I had tried before had not worked.
After my first meetings with Luke and Keith, I felt much more positive about the challenges ahead and felt that my goals were achievable. By setting nutritional and fitness targets, the challenge seemed less daunting and the results felt instantaneous. My first training session with Keith was relaxed and enjoyable. He has a great manner and continues to challenge me while making training sessions fun. I now look forward to going to the gym, which I never did before.
I had initially contacted Luke Bremner Fitness as I wanted to lose weight, tone up and generally look and feel better. Since beginning my programme I had achieved all of the above and have successfully lost weight, and completely changed my body shape in a positive way. I also feel healthier, more alert and more body confident and I also now sleep better and actually enjoy exercise and my training sessions.
I think what is on offer is a great product, with the support and encouragement that is required to set and achieve goals. The results have been better than I had hoped, and I continue to set different goals and targets with increased confidence that I will achieve them.
I was frustrated at being stuck at my current weight for years despite attempting to lose weight on numerous occasions and was becoming increasingly unhappy with my body shape. I had no idea where to start and was confused about what I should be eating, how I should be exercising and what changes I needed to introduce into my lifestyle in order to make change to my body shape, so I decided to contact Luke Bremner Fitness.
I was initially a little apprehensive about getting started as I wasn’t sure what was involved in a personal training programme, but after meeting Luke at the initial consultation I felt more at ease as he explained everything to me in detail and make me feel more relaxed about the whole process.
After I started my programme at Luke Bremner Fitness and implemented the advice given to me by Luke and his team I quickly began to notice changes in the way I looked and felt. In a relatively short space of time I managed to lose a significant amount of weight to get back to my ‘ideal’ weight and I’m now also far more confident with my body shape as I develop tone and definition in my muscles.
As a busy business owner, I was surprised I was able to change my body shape so quickly. I feel that this is largely due to the coaching format Luke has created as we worked together to gradually build new healthy habits together rather than simply being bombarded with the ‘do this do that’ type approach that is so common these days. This approach works perfectly in my busy lifestyle.
I thoroughly recommend Luke Bremner Fitness for anyone looking for a personal trainer in Edinburgh.

Unfortunately we don’t have a success story for Joe, but he was more than willing to let us snap these pictures of his progress over a 12 week period – well done Joe!
I originally started working with Keith – my Luke Bremner Fitness Coach – with the goals of losing weight and becoming fitter.
Before I started working with Keith, over the years I had often joined a gym / exercise classes but stopped going because I lost motivation. As this approach wasn’t working for me, I decided to try personal training instead, but I was concerned the same thing might happen and I was also worried I would be expected to do things that I couldn’t do.
Fortunately that wasn’t the case. Keith sits down with me regularly to review what want to achieve in the next few months and changes the programmes frequently to keep things fresh and interesting but also to challenge me. He is very good at knowing when I’m ready to progress without pushing me beyond my capability and although the sessions are challenging I always feel much better for doing them.
Since working with Keith I have lost a lot of weight and as a result I feel more confident physically and mentally; being more able to cope with the added stresses in my new job. In addition my diet has also greatly improved (I now know what to eat and when) and I feel a lot fitter, now being able to run 1/2 marathons compared to previously when I couldn’t run for the bus!
I really enjoy the sessions and think this is the best way for improving and keeping fit and healthy for me.
Before I started at Luke Bremner Fitness I had always found going to the gym intimidating, and when I did go I was very unsure what exercises or equipment to use to gain results. I struggled to motivate myself there, where I had no real support system. I also tried every fad diet out there, with little success.
In a one on one environment with Luke at his private studio I was made to feel at ease – and provided with such motivation and positivity. I found myself looking forward to training sessions each week. Furthermore, through the application of nutritional knowledge and guidance I now enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
I have lost 18 lbs, 10% body fat and a total of 7 inches round my waist. I’m now 2 dress sizes down, feel much more toned and can now fit in to my favourite dresses again – one of my initial goals when I started at Luke Bremner Fitness.
After achieving the above results I now benefit from more self confidence; increased muscle strength and tone; a better lifestyle and having experienced the results, I now have no problem motivating myself to eat healthily and keep active.
I recommend Luke Bremner Fitness to everyone who wants to get in shape without reservation.
