Preston Personal Trainer
I’m Luke, a Preston personal trainer (specifically Leyland) and work from our garage gym. Throughout my 15 year career as a Preston personal trainer I have worked in state of the art gyms as well as with a vast array of personalities. This has enabled me to ensure that each and every client feels comfortable but more importantly to know right away that ANYONE can fitness. As mentioned, these days I work in more private, less luxurious settings shall we say! Both online and in the garage gym. But it isn’t just me who prefers a more private setting, my clients excel faster so prefer to build up their knowledge and confidence in privacy. And if they so please, can eventually take themselves to any gym, without feeling intimidated or as if they don’t belong.
The worse your start, the better your finish
I specialise in teaching you how to safely and effectively strength train to bring you immediate benefits such as increased muscle mass/strength and as a result shape (body composition). Moreover, improved posture, core stability and functionality to reduce falls and injuries. Getting stronger also results in enhanced fat loss efficiency and raised confidence which crosses over into your every day life. Strength training is for all, irrelevant of age or fitness level too. In fact, a large percentage of my clients are over 50 (some in their 60’s) and they all started from their bottom. So, don’t be discouraged by where you are now, it’s where you finish that matters.
Weight loss that lasts
The majority of my clients have an interest in fat loss and muscle development. But whatever your goals I’ll support and navigate you to achieve them in the most efficient and economical way for YOU. Furthermore, fat loss pills, detox shakes and starvation diets not only don’t work but in-directly transform your body into a fat reserve machine. So, I will take the wheel as your trusted advisor, enabling you to save your cash on what doesn’t work and re-invest a portion of it into myself, your Preston personal trainer/coach!
The Body Reach way, you no longer have to ditch your social life or lose your mind eating plates of plants…without even getting smaller pants. Also, you don’t need to get within 3 breaths of a public heart attack on the treadmill just to burn off a glass of wine (or three). Because achieving your goals doesn’t have to be that hard or boring. I translate your in depth goal assessment form into a smart and simplified plan that you can enjoy implementing without ANY confusion. Moreover, once we achieve your results, they’ll stay this time.
Your future is strong
Because you will have cultivated the things that actually matter to your goals that by this point, will have grown like ivy into YOUR everyday life. A lifestyle approach may not be the sexiest or ‘fastest’ way to dropping half a stone but it’s really the master in disguise (which by now you probably intuitively know). Because when it’s done slow, it won’t go. But when it’s done fast, it won’t last. Too many humans spend their lifetimes on a binge restrict cycle, when they could have been successful within 6-24 months with the right plan.
Then, you get to maintain results with ease and reap the future health benefits. Above I touched on the physical benefits of strength training but here are some physiological benefits; a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes (high blood sugar), osteoporosis (bone thinning) and sarcopenia (muscle wastage). Also, not only does strength training make us look good but it also critically reduces the risks associated with menopause. Ultimately, it’s your golden ticket to a long and quality life.
Heightened protein requirements in older humans
We will intelligently merge your training and lifestyle plan with optimised nutrition too, which becomes especially important when you start to lift weights. But especially as you approach your 60’s. As industry leader Dr Brad Schoenfeld’s research demonstrates, growth pathways in the body such as mTORC1, become dysregulated which results in a lower ability to build or maintain muscle. So, the ageing process results in desensitisation of muscles to essential amino acids (whey protein, eggs, chicken, tofu etc.) creating an anabolic (building) resistance.
As a result, older adults require larger per meal protein doses to ‘trigger’ muscle protein synthesis (growth/repair mode). A key amino acid to triggering protein synthesis is Leucine. Leucine is like the ignition to your car, in that it ‘turns on’ the protein synthesis button. Without it, your car won’t start never mind move. Thus, you can see just how important nutrition and exercise are to the human body especially as we age and it’s my job to not just take you to your goals but to enhance your health, energy and vitality too.
Anyone can fitness
I have been a Preston personal trainer for 15 years now and pride myself on passing on the positive message that anyone can, fitness. However, you must be taught correctly, and herein lies the problem. Over the years I have developed a close understanding of how to adapt to each unique personality and lifestyle. Which can play a pivotal role in ensuring you sustain your fitness journey after starting it. Because starting a health and fitness journey initially can genuinely be a very daunting and confusing experience. But through our partnership I will soon have you loving your new health and fitness journey and the empowerment it brings.
My job is my passion, I live the life I teach and the people I teach are like my tribe! If you follow my methods, I can GUARANTEE you will achieve your goals. Because everything I teach I have done and is evidence based and backed by science. Don’t be fooled by the garage, you will receive exceptional personal training in complete privacy. And will learn more than you ever have, whilst feeling comfortable (regarding self consciousness not exercise intensity!).
Meet and Greet
Firstly, you have an optional 10-15 min voice/video chat to meet and greet. So, we can get an idea of your goals and you can have a look at how we work.
You then receive and fill out a goal specific in depth questionnaire form. This enables us to make your journey as unique as you.
At this point we liaise with you and tailor your journey regarding training and nutrition – all balanced around YOUR lifestyle.
This is where we start to implement with a progress not perfection attitude. And start adapting your fitness goals into your life. Patience is a virtue and perseverance will soon have you accumulating results from solid foundations.
