I had been looking for a personal trainer who could help me implement a sustainable lifestyle change. I came across Gymhippie and loved his holistic approach from the start. Luke took his time getting to know and understand me and my personal goals and continues to do so every week. I have now been training with Luke for 7 weeks and I’m so happy with the results so far. I look forward to our sessions every week and can’t wait to see how much further we can take my training. I would recommend Luke to anyone who is looking to make positive changes in your life, body and strength goals.
⭐ 12-Week Fat-Loss Programme ⭐
Via bespoke mindset, nutrition & training strategies, I will empower you to burn unwanted body fat, build a new physique & upgrade your health – permanently! No fads, no short-term solutions, no gimmicks, nothing extreme – just structured, methodical & sustainable lifestyle change purpose built to satisfy YOUR needs.
Contrary to popular belief, looking & feeling your best does NOT mean aggressive dieting, endless cardio, demonising entire food groups, celebrity-endorsed fads, diet pills – nor any other form of quick fix for that matter! On the contrary, it’s MUCH simpler than that. Successful fat loss boils down to achieving consistency in five key areas …
⭐ NUTRITION STRATEGY ⭐
For Health & Fat Loss ⬅️
Ever heard the expression: “you can’t out-train a bad diet“? Well, it’s true! You see, when it comes to creating that all-important fat-loss prerequisite – a calorie deficit – it’s infinitely more practical & time effective to take control of our calories IN – via our nutrition – than it is to ramp-up our calories OUT – via exercise. So much so, in fact, that if we’re serious about burning fat, we MUST develop the knowledge & skills to effectively manage our calorie intake.
As I’m sure you’re aware, fat-loss nutrition can be confusing – even overwhelming at times. But, rest assured! For undercutting the confusion are a handful of fat-loss fundamentals. Fundamentals that, if understood & put into practice, will equip you with the tools to take control of both your shape & health. It’s these fundamentals – a synergy between calories, protein, carbs, fats, knowledge & habit change – that I’m always excited to share with my clients …
⭐ TRAINING STRATEGY ⭐
➡️ For Strength & Shape
Provided we’re on track with our nutrition – that is, we’re sustaining a calorie deficit & consuming plenty of protein – as the weeks roll by, we’ll steadily burn away unwanted body fat & reveal a new body shape.
Creating this new shape is the primary purpose of our Training Strategy – which will be largely strength-training based and supplemented with cardio. Here’s why …
1️⃣ Strength training prevents muscle loss whilst in a calorie deficit
2️⃣ Strength training sculpts & reshapes our body
A well structured strength-training plan will make you progressively stronger. And it’s these precious strength gains that will drive progressive changes to your body shape.

⭐ PROGRESS TRACKING ⭐
For Control Over Results ⬅️
Tracking your performance & progress is a fundamental component of my programme. It’s absolutely no coincidence that those who track their progress see the best results. You see, not only is evidence of progress highly motivating, but collecting data provides us with invaluable feedback on whether or not our plan is working.
What gets measured gets improved
If we are making progress, then great – full steam ahead. If we’re not, then we change course using data to ensure we make informed decisions. Naturally, the more data we track, the more clarity we have on our performance – and, ultimately, the more control we have over our progress …
What former GymHippies say …
Originally signed up with Luke on a 12 week package, but have enjoyed our sessions so much that I’m already 7 months in. I was really impressed with his sign up process and the investment he has made to create a process that fully focused on the outcomes I wanted to achieve. We regularly revisit these and align our sessions as appropriate. No two weeks are ever the same. His exercises are varied and I am really pleased with my progress!
Luke has incredible knowledge and experience of his industry and knows his subject matter. He is brilliant at explaining the rights and wrongs of exercise at sessions. He goes into great detail in terms of correct breathing, correct posture, and execution of any type of exercise you are performing. He is a stickler for doing things the right way!
Luke has been amazing at helping me conquer my weight loss battle. I have struggled for years to lose weight, but with the help of Luke, for the first time in my life I have lost over a stone by following a plan that works and is easy to follow – no fad diets in sight.
If you are looking for someone to help you with fitness, weight loss or weight training I really do not think you could find anybody better than Luke in terms of experience, dedication, patience, and generally a thoroughly nice guy who genuinely wants to help you be the best you can be.
I would have no hesitation recommending Luke, he is in another league in terms of Personal Training and has set a very high bar for others to follow!
Training with Luke has really built my confidence at the gym. Previously I would only go to classes like spin, HIIT or Pump because I didn’t have the knowledge or experience to dabble in the free weights section. Since training with Luke I have built a good level of confidence, technique and enjoyment in the free weights section. I really look forward to training and now I even do solo sessions to keep the momentum! Luke is always supportive and understanding, when I worked away for a few weeks he designed me a body weight program and lent me some equipment to train with in my hotel room. This really reassured me and reinforced that the journey is a sustainable one.
Initially I had planned on working with Luke for the 12 week reshape but as I am gaining so much from the sessions (knowledge, technique and confidence) I am pleased to continue for as long as I need guidance. Thanks Luke! 🙂
Luke provides a holistic and beautifully well rounded service, that can help anyone from beginners to regular gym users. He listens to your ideas, concerns and goals and provides you with a sustainable way to reach them. My weight loss journey with Luke has been educational, empowering and most importantly, fun! I would recommend the GymHippie to all!
