Luke’s journey started with a significant setback early in life, a head injury at the age of 4. His skull was fractured after a cricket ball, hit for 6 to the boundary caused a blow to this spectators little head - a freak accident! As a result, Luke lost his motor skills, exercise, speech and regular school learning was not an option. With the help of professionals and ongoing family support, Luke worked hard to recover.
At the age of 10 Luke took up running with the hope of increasing his coordination, fitness and to challenge himself, and by 12 years old he was considered at a ‘normal’ learning level. Exercise took just as long to perfect and at the age of 17 Luke was a top runner in the state of Tasmania, achieving far more than anyone thought possible. Luke continues to compete today, running for charity and training with State and Australian representatives, particularly from his hometown. He also works with such representative runners in a mentoring capacity, discussing training and race strategy and provides support to them on various levels.
Luke describes the key to his successful recovery to be his drive and passion for more result! To put yourself outside of your comfort zone is an amazing thing and that’s where the best results are achieved. “As a 4 year old, I decided that I was going to give life everything I had and was going to prove everyone wrong… I was going to get back up to speed with my peers and achieve more! From these experiences I learnt that if you have the gift of movement, you can exercise.”
At the age of 12, Luke began functional strength training focusing on bodyweight strength. At 16 he started lifting weights, using basic free plates and a barbell from his garage-based gym, to gain high-end power, co-ordination and strength.
In 1997 Luke entered the professional world of personal training and group fitness where he saw a direct path to helping others see the benefits of exercise, allowing him to capture a greater audience to motivate, mentor and inspire others to achieve more in life through regular exercise. He was inspired and mentored by various key industry figure heads that shared their raw, real passion for fitness.
