Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

If you're looking for a lasting transformation, to overcome your limitations, and see real results, let's work together.

I never thought I would be sporty or athletic, I thought I was just not meant to do exercise. I thought my body would always hold me back. However I overcame my own limitations and disabilities and I believe that exercise should be a fun, normal part of life. I motivate my clients with encouragement, so that they not only enjoy the results, but look forward to the workouts too.

1. How would your clients describe a session with you?

My clients find me encouraging and positive, while helping them feel at ease.

2. What do you look for in your clients?

I look for clients who want to have fun in their workouts but also work hard to achieve their goals.

3. Book a complimentary session with me if...

You feel your training is becoming stagnant and you want something fun to mix it up.

Fun fact: I'm a comic book nerd – my favourite superhero is superman.

What my Clients say:

“I started working with Luke in the hopes of improving my overall fitness and losing weight. From the very first session Luke made me feel at ease, and gave me the motivation and encouragement to try things I wouldn’t have thought I was capable of. No session has been the same, and Luke has always managed to keep me feeling enthused and positive when faced with any challenges.”

“Luke is a fantastic, dedicated and inspiring trainer who has not only helped me achieve my goals, but helped me rediscover a passion for fitness.” – Fiona Cullen

Benjamin Gifford

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I'm an enthusiastic and positive thinker; no challenge is too big or too small. I'm eager to help you set ambitious goals and push you to achieve them. If you're looking to change certain aspects of your lifestyle but lack either the know how or the motivation to do so, I can help. Perhaps you’re not seeing the results you want from your workout routines, feel sluggish in your day-to-day life, or simply need someone to hold you accountable and push you to make positive change.

The training plans I offer are multifaceted and carefully consider training load, client specificity, nutrition, motivation, emotional health, and time management/availability. Throughout your journey with me I aim to give you the tools necessary to take your health and wellbeing into your own hands. Our time together will enable you to improve strength and stability, body confidence and positivity, cardiovascular endurance, and sport specific fitness. Your training program will be specifically tailored towards achieving your goals and flexible to ensure that they are realistic and achievable.

With my knowledge and experience in the fitness industry, first-class Honours degree in physiology, additional qualifications, and personal experience in elite sport, I can help you adjust your lifestyle and take steps towards a healthier, fitter, and happier you. I greatly appreciate how exercise and positive thinking can transform your life and lead to a plethora of benefits that filter into all aspects of your day-to-day life. I have experience working with individuals of all abilities and am passionate about giving 100% to help people with their personal progression. I have worked within the NHS where I focused on helping stroke patients with their rehabilitation exercises and ran circuit classes to improve motor function and regain postural stability.

My personal sporting journey began at a young age as I made my way through the ranks of Scottish road cycling teams and competed at the highest level in overseas road races. I therefore have personal experience following strict, well-structured training plans and have been able to utilise this experience in shaping what I can offer clients. Nowadays I enjoy using the gym as a tool to add value to my hobbies which include cycling, swimming, rock climbing, mountaineering, yoga, and paddle boarding.

Tiegan McPadden

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

My engagement with fitness has stemmed from an early age through playing Pro Youth Football to Scottish Regional level. This drive and passion for sport encouraged my healthy habits and progressively led me to achieve a degree in Fitness Health and Exercise and BSc Honours in Sport Science.

I have the foundation of applied knowledge, variety and experience in health and fitness which is essential to helping others meet their personal goals. I understand that starting your journey may be daunting, however, I am a friendly, open and approachable individual who not only is keen to know you as a client but get to know you as a person too as this is the key to achieving success.

I'm passionate, determined and goal orientated, which is reflected through my current knowledge and experience. I enjoy helping others in setting their own goals and pushing them to achieve their goals as well as a better version of themselves. As your Personal Trainer, I will provide you with tailored programmes and provide you with the support, knowledge and motivation you require to achieve your goals. Everyone’s goals are unique and I'm keen to undertake new challenges and promote a healthier population.

Sport science has allowed me to gain deeper understanding of the type of training required for athletes and sport specific training through specific strength and conditioning, which is a prospect I am more than keen to provide.

I am also qualified to teach both Spin and MetaFit classes which are great to get involved in and which are both time efficient classes to engage with to increase your activity levels! I will bring the variety, knowledge and experience to leave you with a worthwhile and positive session.

Stephanie Prescott

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

Through my qualifications and personal experience, I utilised my passion for fitness to improve my own health and wellbeing and look forward to helping you become the best version of yourself.

I believe that in creating small daily habits you can change your lifestyle and achieve your goals, whether your goals are weight loss, muscle gain or performance related. I have always loved travel and have spent my 20s travelling the world working as cabin crew for British Airways and Emirates. Through this I have become very adaptable with types of training and can help you fit your workouts into a busy and varying schedule

Always making an effort with continual learning and development I am enthusiastic and driven to help you achieve the results you crave, having taken myself through my own weight loss journey, consolidating healthy habits and building up my resistance training.

I will always be there to understand your needs and motivate you to succeed as you embark on your fitness journey.
