Luke’s journey into personal training began as early as his school days. With a competitive spirit and mind set he was regularly involved in county level sport and in football represented stoke city academy during his later school years.
In the later school years he wanted to improve his physical performance further so decided to join Dave’s gym aged 15. He soon began to see the benefits of regular physical exercise and decided he wanted to pursue a career in sport and exercise. With this in mind he went on to Sir john Deane’s College to study Physical Education, Business Studies and Psychology. The gym environment, competitive sport and his studies enabled Luke to find the career he wanted to pursue in personal training. Seeing the effect of exercise made him think he would like to make a career of helping others achieve their goals in exercise also.
Before entering university Luke looked at the current personal training market and saw that it only took a college level diploma to become a personal trainer. With this in mind and observing that the fitness market was saturated with college level trainers Luke decided to further his qualification and study for a degree to enhance his learning capabilities against rival competitors.
During his 3year studies at University Luke began working at Dave’s gym as a gym instructor to gain regular experience. Having successfully completed his degree Luke still works at Dave’s Gym but as a Personal Fitness Trainer.
The life of a personal trainer doesn’t stop there, As exercise techniques are frequently changing personal trainers must stay on top of the latest equipment and exercises out there on the market. Luke is constantly updating his qualifications and knowledge through attending seminars, lectures and open days to ensure his clients get the best available workouts and advice out there.
