I have been going to Luke at GymHippie since October 2017 for personal training sessions! I didn’t join to reach any particular fitness goals but more to invite positive change into my life after going through a difficult time. I wanted to not only feel more positive but to also feel more body confident and to feel more energised. I had always had issues with waking up in the mornings and found that my energy levels were low. I didn’t need to lose weight but I did want to tone up. I also wanted to structure a healthier eating pattern which was more nutritional. Since starting training with Gym Hippie over 6 months ago, not only have I become more toned but I have also grown in confidence and become more disciplined. Previously to training with GymHippie, I had never set foot in a gym before. This for me was something that was quite daunting, however GymHippie made me feel at ease and got me to grips with the machines and the weights very quickly, tailoring a workout for me which has helped me to reach my goals and improve my skillset, whilst challenging me physically as the weeks go by. I really like Luke’s approach to training and nutrition and his positive ethos for self improvement. This is something that has really inspired me and has helped me to create positive change in many aspects of my life. I have had work commitments come up on a few occasions but Luke was able to reschedule sessions which has been great as I really enjoy my GymHippie sessions and would be sad to miss a week! I would highly recommend training with GymHippie if you want to invite positivity into your life and your training programme! I cannot thank Luke enough!

Fat Loss NOT Weight Loss
With a custom-tailored training and nutrition strategy – alongside just the right amount of support, guidance, education and accountability! – you will be empowered to burn unwanted body fat and reshape your body. No fads, no short-term solutions, nothing extreme – just sustainable lifestyle changes designed to fit around YOU.
Contrary to popular belief, looking and feeling awesome does NOT mean aggressive dieting, endless cardio, eliminating entire food groups, celebrity-endorsed fads, diet pills – or ANY other quick fix for that matter! On the contrary, it’s MUCH simpler than that. Successful fat loss & body shaping means being consistent with three things …
Make No Mistake, Fat Loss Starts with Nutrition!
Whilst successful fat loss and body shaping will ultimately require us to boss BOTH our training and nutrition strategies, let there be no mistake: when it comes to fat loss, nutrition is BY FAR our most powerful weapon!
Why so? Because, when it comes to creating that all-important fat-loss prerequisite – a calorie deficit – it’s MUCH easier and more time effective to take control of our calories IN (through taking control of our food intake), than it is to increase our calories OUT (through increasing our levels of physical activity)
Strength Focused NOT Cardio Focused
Provided you’re on track with your nutrition – that is, you’re sustaining a moderate calorie deficit and consuming plenty of protein – as the weeks roll by, you’ll steadily burn away unwanted body fat to reveal a new body shape – “leaner” and more “toned”
Creating this new shape is the PRIMARY purpose of our Training Strategy – which, as you know, will be almost entirely strength-training focused – and NOT cardio focused. Here’s why …

Shape Focused NOT Weight Focused
I know it’s a little pretentious to start with a quote, but I’ma gunna do it anyway
“Measurement is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement. If we can’t measure something, we can’t understand it. If we can’t understand it we can’t control it. If we can’t control it, we can’t improve it” – James J Harrington
The headline: tracking progress is important! Indeed, not only is hard evidence of positive change both inspiring and a reason to celebrate, but it also provides us with valuable feedback on whether or not our strategies are working.

I can’t recommend GymHippie enough – just go for it, you won’t regret it! I was very impressed with his client’s progress, so I decided to enrol in this adventure. He has in mind your goal and is very supportive in helping you reach it. Before this, I felt like I was plateauing in my workouts and he helped me overcome it. This was very important to me, with him I managed to stay more focused. The sessions are very hardcore, but I always felt amazing after them! I’m very happy with the end results
I have been training with Luke for about 6 weeks now. I came across Luke’s training approach in a spin class he led at Buzz gym and I really enjoyed his style of teaching and motivation. I had been wanting a personal trainer for a while mainly because I never pushed myself enough on my own and I wanted exercises/nutrition advice specific to my body type. Luke is very approachable and knowledgeable and was happy to take me on 2 times a week even with my ever changing work schedule. In just 6 weeks I am feeling so much stronger and fitter. No session is ever the same and Luke always pushes me to my fitness limits. He is very motivating and always has alternatives for injuries or fatigue. Luke is also very genuine, friendly, easy to talk to and keeps the sessions fun (as much fun as it can be lol). Another great benefit is the significant amount of work he has done to provide guidance and information for both physical and mental well-being. I highly recommend Luke and his program to anyone looking for guidance or that extra push!!
Started training with Luke back in September and he’s been great the whole way through. The sign up questionnaire and initial meeting are pretty thorough, but we still mention the things we discussed back then. Understanding the person and what motivates them is fundamental to the way Luke works, which is great, and you really feel invested in, and like your overall well-being is what comes first.
Luke is a great person to have around during training sessions, and is clearly very knowledgeable and well respected in the gym. This definitely helps make you feel comfortable, even during the initial stages where he might have you in some unusual positions with a resistance band!
I’m really pleased with the progress we’re making, and it wasn’t long after we started training that colleagues, friends and family started to really notice a change. The principles that we stick to are so simple to follow, and really once we set up a calorie budget and a training plan it’s just become part of my normal routine.
Signed up initially for 12 weeks, but no intention of stopping training with Luke any time soon, excited to see what we can achieve in the future!
If you’re considering training with Luke, just go for it, couldn’t have asked for anything more 👍
