The Coaches

Our team is committed to helping Edinburgh’s busy professional improve their health, fitness, body shape and quality of life through bespoke and professional personal training and nutrition coaching.

Since 2011, our company has grown consistently and quickly became established as one of the leading providers of personal training and nutrition coaching services in Edinburgh.

We currently have two private studios – one in the New Town on Jamaica Street (opened in 2014) and the other in Stockbridge on North West Circus Place (opened in 2018).

At our studios we strive to provide a friendly and non-intimidating environment for everyone who works with us so you can feel comfortable and confident working with our team of expert coaches:

Luke Bremner

Business Manager & Online Personal Training Director

After graduating with a degree in Podiatry 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.

Although Luke continues to do some personal training, he now specialises in nutrition and life coaching. These additional skills help clients make profound changes in their lives and are the perfect complement to the exercise side of personal training to deliver personal transformation.

Although Luke predominantly oversees the business now, he still works with a handful of clients on our online personal training programmes.

Matt Duff

Exercise Coach, Personal Trainer & Nutritional Advisor

Matt joined the Luke Bremner Fitness team in June 2021.

Through playing competitive sports as a teenager, Matt developed a keen interest in sport and optimising human performance. This led Matt to study Applied Sport Science at the University of Edinburgh where he learned the importance of adopting a holistic approach towards improving an individual’s health and fitness.

However, after graduating, Matt realised his passion for healthy living was not within the elite sport environment, but rather in helping the general population improve their health, fitness and quality of life.

As a result, Matt went on to gain a diploma in Personal Training so he could help more people to feel healthier, stronger, happier and more confident in themselves. All of which contribute to a greater quality of life.

Matt cares deeply about helping our clients improve their physical health and mental wellbeing to live a healthier lifestyle. He believes in taking manageable and progressive steps at a gradual pace in order to make long-term healthy lifestyle changes.

In combination with Matt’s outlook on health as described above, with his kind, compassionate and professional attitude he fits in perfectly with the ethos and vision we’ve established here at Luke Bremner Fitness.
