Having been a gym junkie since I turned 50 I gained confidence lost weight and met new likeminded friends. Then covid hit. It all changed and I lost my mojo. Missed my pals and piled on the weight and started to feel old. I saw an ad for EMP and checked out the website. Making that first step in contacting them was my turning point. Luke was fab reassuring encouraging and mentoring during a trial Saturday (!) after Christmas. We discussed PT as a way to to get me moving again and I was introduced to Mel. And there began the next part of my journey into regaining my confidence healing my body and my mind and exploring and reaching a few goals along the way. I have every respect for the boys and their clients are a testament to their ability and mindset. Spicy Saturday sessions are hateful but unmissable. Thank you Luke and Mel


Words cannot express how much my life has changed for the better since starting my personal training sessions with Luke a year ago.

My dad had been seeing him after years of chronic pain & issues he was struggling to find solutions for. Seeing these issues finally being alleviated & how much Luke has done for my dad’s overall health & well-being, I decided to start weekly sessions myself.

A year later and I my lifestyle has completely changed. I see Luke for PT twice a week & am at the local gym most days outside of that. I have healthier eating habits. I sleep better. My goals have expanded far beyond what I originally went to him for initially. I can’t thank him enough for the motivation he’s given me to make this lifestyle change.

He really understands each individual client’s needs and is able to cater/adapt to all age groups & walks of life. Luke’s extensive knowledge of health, fitness & the body is apparent when he’s adjusting my sessions on the fly due to injury or because he’s more in tune with my limits than I am.

I cannot recommend him or the EMP family highly enough. Whatever your fitness goals are, go have a chat to Luke and the team. It will change your life 👏🏼


Luke Preston has been my personal trainer for almost 4 years and when he opened EMP Performance earlier this year, I followed him to his new gym. It's a great space - big enough to be well equipped but small enough to be intimate and friendly. When you walk through the door you feel like you are family and the results I have achieved through Luke's personal attention to my fitness and strength needs (I'm at the older end of the scale!) have been nothing short of extraordinary. I can't thank you enough or recommend you more highly.
