After falling into the rut of full time work, kids and a decision to return to university to study, i felt that the usual happy me disappeared. I was always tired, i stopped playing a sport that i love and had played at a national level, ate and drank anything i wanted and made the excuse of "i;m too busy" to help myself, despite knowing i was in the downward spiral. 

Coach Luke has turned this around..i was 110% supported in starting this journey, educated in nutrition for training and study, and the results are still ongoing. I lost weight, i feel happier, healthier and have learnt to set goals. My goal at the end of last year was return to the sport i love and with following Lukes coaching i have just recently been selected to represent Australia in the upcoming World Cup Masters Indoor Hockey Championships in Hong Kong.

I highly recommend Luke and Emp Performance for their professionalism, ongoing encouragement and individual attention to my goals. to coach Luke, thank you for standing by me, believing i can get there and i look forward to forever setting new goals.

Following a national and international athlete career, i found it very hard to commit to another exercise regime for extended periods of time. This was until i began personal training with Luke.

Not enjoying cardio and having never lifted weights, i found it too confronting to attempt the gym. Luke taught me the basics of strength training and i have not looked back since. The EMP programs keep me motivated  and excited to train along with him keeping me accountable through weekly tasks. I am now the strongest i have ever been physically and mentally thanks to Luke and EMP. The release after a tough session has been the most effective way for me, as a anxious person to relieve the stress of full time uni and work.

I cannot recommend Luke and Emp Performance enough for the time, effort and energy that they give to each of their clients.

Great programming and coaching that delivers results and challenges you each session. Luke is passionate about helping you achieve your fitness goals, reliable, and very knowledgeable. 
Luke has been programming for me for over a year and I have never looked back. We have achieved my goals and with him programming I can just focus on getting stronger and fitter - rather than thinking about what to do or if I am doing the right things based on my goals.

I started with Luke to get in shape for my wedding and never looked back. I am so much stronger than i ever thought i would be, and have learnt so much every week. Every session is exciting which keeps motivation high. I would highly recommend Emp Performance.

Luke programs sessions to your skills and abilities. He is knowledgeable and caring, and knows when to push and when to modify training due to injuries or health issues. Delighted to see him in his own specialised gym. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Luke Preston has been my personal trainer for over 4 years and when he opened Emp Performance, I followed him to his new gym. 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 strength and fitness needs have been nothing short of extraordinary. I can't thank him enough or recommend him and higher.

When I first came to EMP I was very stuck in a rut, lacking motivation and not seeing any progress and getting frustrated. EMP has made me love training again, and the beautiful EMP fam have got me through some tough times. Since falling back in love with training, all my lifts have started to progress again. And I don’t totally suck at cardio anymore!


Despite COVID, it surpassed my expectations. EMP managed to create a culture that delivers results and supports people of all fitness levels to achieve their goals. I am loving the journey!


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
