Luke began his studies in Exercise Science in 1998 and has not looked back. He owes a lot of credit to his first personal trainer who changed his mind set on exercise and helped him see the importance of functional and corrective exercise methods for a stronger, stable body inside and out.
With so much to offer his clients, Luke will match his training style to suit the needs of anyone he works with. He has key knowledge and experience in correcting movement discrepancies allowing the body to move more functionally.
Luke has a diverse skillset allowing him to work with anyone from professional athletes and bodybuilders to pregnant women and people with disabilities. He follows a holistic approach to health and wellbeing and believes one size does not fit all when it comes to exercise prescription. It is important to first get an assessment on how your body moves and then form a program based on sports, occupation, previous injuries, etc.
Luke has a keen interest in skiing, running, gym work and golf. When he is not at the Health & Fitness Centre, he may be out on the golf course hitting balls or building up kilometres on the roads.
He loves working with all his clients and really thrives seeing them happy, pain-free and achieving their goals, whatever they may be.

Kim has been a member of the Millbrook Health & Fitness team since 2017, as both the receptionist and our Dynamic Pilates class instructor. Kim developed an immediate and deep appreciation for the mindful movement that each Pilates exercise demands, becoming fascinated by the clarity and holistic understanding it uniquely reveals about one's entire body. Pilates made Kim feel more connected through mind and body which has always stayed with her and strengthened the more she practices.
Kim's passion for Pilates has now led her to complete the intensive Reformer Pilates teacher training course with internationally recognised STOTT Pilates. Kim encourages others of all ages and levels to join her in experiencing the benefits of Pilates for themselves. It is only through first-hand, that one is able to realise how beneficial Pilates is for achieving an increased feeling of health and wellbeing. Pilates is more than just exercise, it assists people across every aspect of their current condition, enabling them to build, see and feel real results as they progress.
Kim loves helping people feel their best through movement. Seeing people experience these very real benefits in their everyday life is an incredibly rewarding aspect of what she does.
