WELCOME TO LUKEWORTHINGTON.COM

Luke Worthington, a qualified Sports Scientist, has a lifetime of experience in international and elite level sport. Having been a former international athlete and world record holder he has an understanding of the unique demands athletes place on their bodies, and is in high demand to work with both healthy and injured individuals.

Luke’s specialism is biomechanics and movement neurology, and has travelled the World to study and work under the very best in these areas.  His approach to human movement and performance is 360 degree and covers the connection and correlation between movement, neurology, psychology and emotional wellbeing.

Having worked in the UK, USA, Russia and Ukraine, Luke is fortunate enough to have worked alongside some of the Worlds leading coaches and medical professionals  in preparing athletes for competition at British, European, Commonwealth, World, and Olympic level. His client list includes multiple World champions across a variety of sports, as well as performers and dancers from the leading shows in Londons West End,  New York Broadway, and the Las Vegas strip.

DISTANCE COACHING

Acknowledging that regular one to one coaching may not be what every person wants or needs, and that people can only ever be in one place at a time, distance coaching provides an economical and convenient solution for people looking for individualised exercise programs.

Distance coaching consists of programs divided into four week mesocycles, and requires the client to complete a comprehensive questionnaire covering exercise, injury and health history, as well as providing some videos of simple biomechanical assessments.

CORPORATE WELLNESS

Increasingly in the corporate world, employers are showing an interest in the wellbeing of their staff away from the workplace.  The Office of National Statistics notes that 31million days of work are lost each year due to  back, neck and muscle problems.  The ONSs Labour Force Survey indicated that musculoskeletal conditions (bone and joint complaints) accounted for more prolonged absences than any other ailment, indeed these conditions account for 30% of all disabilities in the UK.

As we know prevention is far better than cure  – and long desk bound working hours do have many negative side effects.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

I have been working closely with Luke for the past year using his system of PRI exercises and strength training. This has allowed me to have my hip back pain free. I call him my saviour. I had an injury to my hip due to intense dance training for a West End show which eventually led to major surgery. Luke has changed my day to day life and has made my rehabilitation a speedy and positive recovery, to the stages of The Bodyguard, 42nd Street and BBC's Strictly Come Dancing. Being an athlete you are on a constant cycle, you don't stop and my body wasn't keeping up with me, and now it does. This system works and I can't thank Luke enough for keeping my body in top form, allowing me to dance and train in the correct posture leaving my hip pain free and feeling good.

Luke’s taught me many things about the brain and body but what stands out is that resting doesn’t mean stopping. In less than six months he’s helped me move from a highly stressed, highly strung state to a place where I no longer feel anxious about getting in enough workouts. I’m doing less but seeing more results, and sleeping through the night. I’ve finally wised up to the fact that you can’t out train a frantic lifestyle but you can use your time in the gym to bring life back into balance.

I was on the same Team as Luke when winning the English Schools title twice in Track & Field. We reunited several years later when I was looking for someone who could put together a detailed training programme to get me in the best shape of my life for the Winter Olympics.

4 months into the programme I had broken my personal records in my vertical jump (54 inches) my flying 30m 3.75 seconds, my standing long 3m25 not to mention 6 different core lifts in the gym. What I like about Luke is that his programme is tailored to me.

“Being based in Los Angeles, but often fighting in Europe, I needed a man on the ground in the UK to help with achieving peak performance at the time when it’s needed. Splitting training and competition between continents and time zones can undo months of preparation.

Luke has a strong relationship with my coaches in the USA and is always able to understand where I am at with my conditioning prep before I even arrive. When it comes to fine tuning my athletic training and being confident that I am on point – this is my go-to guy. I would highly recommend anyone looking for that extra edge in performance to check out what he’s got going on.”
