Focus on health and fitness, and the physique follows.

Use corrective exercise, stretching, and myofascial release to eliminate postural and movement dysfunction so you have the mobility to maximize the amount of muscular engagement during exercise, and avoid injury.

Develop a fitness program that takes into account your posture, work environment, and exercise experience. Eliminating postural and movement dysfunction allows you to develop adequate levels of strength and mobility, to perform the following movements properly: Deadlifting, Lunging, Pulling, Pushing, and Engaging your Core.

Mastering and building strength in the previously mentioned movements gives you the framework to perform every exercise needed to become fit and healthy.

Perform resistance training 2-4 times each week using the movements above. Engage in lots of low level activity each week: Walking, hiking, playing. Choose high intensity cardio (short sprints), over long steady state (jogging).

Nutrition made simple. Worry more about the quality of food, than the calories of food. Pasture raised meat products (when possible), ample vegetables, fruit and starch as needed to support workouts. Remove sugar, processed food, and unnecessary grains. On workout days carbohydrate intake is higher while fat intake is lower. On rest days fat intake increases, while carbohydrate is lower. The Paleo Diet offers a great framework to begin your nutritional choices around. Take a pragmatic approach to nutrition, not a dogmatic one.
To achieve any goal you need a GREAT WHY. Why do you want to lose weight? Why do you want to get stronger? Why do you want to get healthier?

What will reaching your fitness and health goal do for you? How will your life change when you get there?

There will be obstacles along the way, having a great why insures you see the journey through. Imagine yourself at that place…

“As a steady client of Luke’s for almost 2 years, I would completely recommend him to anyone who is serious about having a lean, strong, athletic body based on a healthy lifestyle. We all have different physical needs, and Luke’s education and experience have tailored a program which has directly addressed my body’s issues. I have struggled w/ degenerative disks for almost 20 years, but since training w/ Luke for the past 2 years, the weakness & resulting sciatic pain from my disks have practically disappeared.”

“Although fit for my age category, I am nonetheless a 66 yr old matron. Luke is an expert in exercise physiology. He easily adapted my goal to strive for my personal best without over taxing my physical limits. I highly recommend Luke for his knowledge, attention to detail, encouragement, and undeniable results.”
“As an Olympic hopeful, working with Luke has made such a positive impact on my training and athletic career. I have been working with Luke for over a year, and he has helped me build amazing strength and stability towards my sport. I have seen great advances in areas that were so weak before.
“Luke’s knowledge and skills were obvious to me from the first meeting I had with him. He’s straightforward and honest, which I love. When I first came to him, I had been doing CrossFit for a little less than a year and was starting to have trouble with my shoulder and he immediately determined I was having some mobility issues.
While working with Luke, I could feel my body getting stronger and he provided me with a lot of exercises and good practices to continue my improvement which led to me becoming a better runner and athlete! Luke is extremely patient and is able to modify exercises based on individual needs. I would strongly recommend him as a trainer, coach, and adviser to anyone who needs help with an injury, strength training or overall improvement!”
