Luke Bremner Fitness was founded in 2011 by Luke Bremner, with the primary aim and mission of helping as many of Edinburgh’s busy professionals and business owners as possible to improve their health, fitness, body shape and quality of life through bespoke and professional personal training, exercise and nutrition coaching.
Since founding in 2011, Luke Bremner Fitness has grown consistently and quickly became established as one of the leading providers of personal training and nutrition coaching in Edinburgh.
We currently have two private studios – one in in Edinburgh’s New Town on Jamaica Street (opened in 2014) and the other in Edinburgh’s Stockbridge on North West Circus Place (opened in 2018).
At both of our studios we strive to provide a friendly, welcoming and non-intimidating environment for all of our valued clients so they feel comfortable and confident working with our team of expert coaches, who you can read about below:
Luke Bremner, BSc (Hons) / PN1
Business Manager, Personal Trainer & Precision Nutrition Coach.
After graduating with an honours degree in Podiatric Medicine from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2008, Luke spent 2 years working in the NHS, during which time his main interest was in the area of biomechanics – the study of human movement. After deciding a career in the NHS as a Podiatrist wasn’t for him, Luke took this knowledge and decided to follow his passion and start a personal training business, after gaining numerous qualifications in health, fitness and nutrition.
Luke quickly gained a reputation as an expert in the fitness industry, and the Luke Bremner Fitness brand, along with the Luke Bremner Fitness team, has become synonymous with professionalism and quality throughout Edinburgh and beyond.
Luke has began to branch out in to the area of transformation coaching after recognising that without addressing the mindset of many of our clients, personal training and/or nutrition coaching will do little to help them. Working on this deep level with clients became a strong passion of Luke’s and has become his main area of interest.
Although Luke predominantly oversees the business now, he still works with a handful of personal clients on the 4 Week Jumpstart and 12 Week Transformation programmes (and beyond). Click the programme name above to read more about each of these programmes.
Keith Bateman, BSc (Hons)
Exercise Coach, Personal Trainer & Nutritional Advisor.
Keith joined the Luke Bremner Fitness team in September 2014 and quickly became very popular with our clients. He has an impressive 18 years experience in the fitness industry, the last 14 of which have been as a Personal Trainer. He has a vast range of skills and qualifications in the fitness and nutrition industry.
This wealth of experience allows Keith to deliver a high quality training and coaching experience to all the clients we work with and always manages to ensure the sessions are varied, challenging, fun and most importantly, deliver results.
His infectious passion for health and fitness and a lifelong interest in sports definitely comes across in his sessions and he is frequently complimented on his methods, training style and manner, as well as for the fantastic results he achieves with our clients.
