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.

Ali, Financial Services

After recently turning 30, it became apparent my fitness levels were at an all time low and I was becoming increasingly overweight. I knew I needed to bite the bullet and take action, and following a recommendation from a colleague, I decided to get in touch with Luke Bremner Fitness.

Initially I was apprehensive about starting the 4 Week Jumpstart programme due to the investment, and also because I was unsure what to expect. However, the training programme exceeded my expectations as I began to notice and feel the benefits of training with Graeme, my coach, very quickly.

Graeme and I got along really well. He kept me motivated when I felt like I had nothing left to give, and helped me learn about the right exercise and nutrition principles for my particular lifestyle, fitness level and how best to work towards achieving my goals. All of this in combination massively helped me to meet my objectives.

I found that if I previously went to the gym I would not have any structure or idea of what I wanted to achieve. The programmes Graeme designed for me were personalised and delivered the exact results I wanted. Now when I got to the gym I am aware of exactly what to do and have consistency around it to maintain my progress on my own.

I thoroughly enjoyed my sessions and would recommend Luke Bremner Fitness to anyone. The benefits were both immediate and long term as I now have the knowledge and capability to continue improving my fitness and weight loss.

Luke, Logistics Manager

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!
