WELCOME TO LUKEWORTHINGTON.COM

Helping people move better, think better and feel better.

Luke Worthington is a coach, trainer and educator focused on helping people move better, think better, and feel better.

Luke divides his time between his own private clients, educating and mentoring fitness professionals, selected media and speaking opportunities, and providing technical and movement direction for film and photoshoots. He is also the head trainer for the ITV series ‘Harrys Heroes’.

Having been a former international athlete, Luke has an understanding of the unique demands that occur when an individuals physical performance is also their livelihood. Having started out with a specialism in sports performance, and successfully training multiple World champions, Luke has since developed a niche in the entertainment sector, and has trained Oscar and Emmy winning performers for some of the biggest roles on screen.

He has prepared artists for the lead roles in major productions such as Star Wars and Killing Eve, and in the the world of theatre prepared the leads of Tina,  Aladdin, 42nd Street and Hairspray.

Coming from a background in professional sports, and as a qualified Sports Scientist, Luke’s philosophy is we are all athletes. We all want and need our bodies to perform optimally and pain free. Whether our aim is to score the winning goal in the world cup final, become a Jedi saving the galaxy, wow the red carpet, or just to look a little better for a summer holiday – we all have the right to enjoy what our bodies can do for us.

Luke’s belief is that we can optimise our physical potential by understanding the relationship between biomechanics, neuromechanics, psychology and emotional wellbeing. Once we understand that these systems are in fact one – we can truly understand what we are capable of.

Improving the quality of, and access to education within sports, health and fitness is of utmost importance to ensure the continued development of the industry – Luke runs his own education series across Europe and the USA, and often collaborates with other figures in the training, medical or fitness worlds to deliver specialised workshops, Closer to home he works alongside Nike UK  to produce educational content that is available to all.

Luke is proud to be at the forefront of a new approach to human movement known as Postural Restoration, developed in Nebraska, USA.

CONSULTANCY

Often a series of connected individuals coming in for assessments is neither the most practical or economical solution, for sports teams or groups of performers.  In this instance a consultancy service is available to visit you in your own training facility or performance arena, evaluate training, practise and performing facilities and conditions, then implement changes and recommendation on a large scale.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

"When I met Luke I was in a place where I was extremely frustrated with the aches and pains my body was starting to develop. Within only a couple of sessions Luke was able to pinpoint what it was that needed correcting and I started feeling better after every session. I started feeling the best I had in a long time, it was simply a bonus that I was looking my best too."

SABRINA ELBA, Model

"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."

ANNIE KITCHEN, West End Star

"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."

AMY HOPKINSON, Digital Editor Women's Health

"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."

LIAM COLLINS, World Indoor Champion 60m Hurdles, National Champion 110m Hurdles.

“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.”

MARCUS KOWAL, Professional MMA Fighter

“I had thought my professional football career was over before I met Luke. I was unable to complete 90 minutes of a game without feeling excessive tension in my calves and hamstrings. Having seen physio after physio and no one being able to resolve it I was running out of options until I was recommended to go and see Luke. After conducting a biomechanical analysis we discovered that my problems were actually coming from an imbalance in my hips and pelvis, and after getting going with some corrective exercises the problems disappeared almost immediately. I feel lucky to have been introduced to Luke, and to have a second chance at my career."

PAT COLLINS, Professional Footballer, Sunderland and England

“Luke Worthington is a cutting edge trainer who respects three dimensions of movement and multiple human systems when analysing fitness performance. His respect for the nervous system, the respiratory system and full body biomechanics make him one of the best in all of Europe. It is truly a pleasure to collaborate with a forward thinking professional of Luke's caliber."
