I started training with Luke 24+ Months ago. I was heavily over-weight, low on confidence and also have multiple sclerosis, which means I need to take care over what exercise I do and how much.
I have tried countless times over my life to lose weight, some more successfully than others. This is the most success I have EVER had, I credit Luke with a lot of that success. Because this time, I have not only learned to eat better, I have found a real love of exercise.
In addition, Luke has changed my mindset from just looking at the numbers on the scales, to thinking about overall health, strength and fitness.
I started as a size 20 and now fit into size 14 clothes! I have lost over 25% of my body weight, my blood pressure has returned to somewhat “normal”.
I sometimes see photographs of myself and can't believe its me!
Luke always arrived at sessions with a smile on his face, and something new to do. He has supported me, listened to me, advised me and occasionally even given me a good push back in the right direction. I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone looking for a personal trainer.
Before training with Luke I felt weak and unhappy with my appearance. I was also struggling with dealing with the fact I have a joint condition, and had came to terms with it getting worse as I got older.
Since training with Luke I have learnt that exercise is the best thing I can do.
He has taught me that adapting my stance and positioning doesn’t mean I’m not doing it right, that I’m doing it right for me and my body. I have been training with Luke on and off for 2 years now, with changes to employment and moving house causing some restraints, I am not always able to train directly with him.
However this hasn't stopped me gaining results as I have utilised every training I have received from him, and still using plans he has created specific to my needs and what results I’m after.
I now feel healthier, stronger and more confident in myself. I have also been able to complete a 5K run for Cancer Research, where without Luke’s training I wouldn’t have been able to run the 2K I did (hip dislocations however are a bit more tricker to avoid than knee ones - Sorry Luke).
Without Luke’s help I’d still be miserable, I’d still be unhealthy and I’d probably be convinced that my joint condition was the end of it for me.
In total over the two years, I’ve lost around 2 stone.
I have been going to the gym for over 6 years with not much improvement and staying the same weight.
But since I have been working with Luke over the pass 12 months, I have become fitter, stronger and a lot lighter.
I have to had to make some changes to my life style a little but I am eating better and more regular times and healthier food.
Luke has set the amount of calories I require and try to stick to it as much as I can.
I have weekly session with Luke, He keeps me motivated and pushes me to my limits to get the best out of me, even when I am not exactly feeling like doing it.
Luke helps me get from start to finish during my session.
The sessions are hard work but very enjoyable especially when you see the results after each fitness test you can see the benefits.
Luke helps me do each exercise correctly, making sure I am in the right position and use the right parts of the body to not injury myself,
Luke is very friendly, helpful and know what he is talking about!
Luke makes every session good as he mixes everything up and keeps me on my toes always!
Luke's sessions and diet plan are realistic and easy to follow which keeps me on track as we are not craving for 'naughty' food... as much!
I think luke has helped see my life in a new light with training etc. and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
I have learnt that training is going to have ups and downs and i just needed to keep focused and patient, Luke's strength for me is definitely his motivational talking and distraction from the pain to push those extra reps out even if we don't want to, he is a trainer who interacts with you, which I like!
I started off dieting for myself where I went from nearly 14 stone to 11.3 stone, this is when I hit the wall and I needed to join the gym.
I joined bannatyne in the February and on my first visit I honestly didn't know what I was doing...
so I just stood on the treadmill doing nothing.
This is when Luke come over he shown me around the gym and helped me figure out what was best for me to use.
At the end of February I booked my first personal training session with luke, which helped me build my confidence in the gym as he shown me what to use and sat with me to make a diet plan to help me loose a little more weight and begin to tone more.
Whilst doing my sessions luke realised I was stubborn he couldn't even get me to squat so he planned the sessions to be even more fun and this helped me stay focused.
Luke has helped me so much if it weren't for him I would of quit gym on the first day...
I've gone from 11.3 stone to 9.4 stone and can now squat like a pro!
