Meet Luke, the fitness giant taking the South Bay by storm.

What Makes You a Local?

Although I have only lived in Hermosa beach for 18 months, my business impacts a large number of the community directly.

What Do You Do?

We offer a variety of functional fitness aimed towards supporting those looking to make serious life changes. We promote a sustainable, balanced lifestyle and engage in growing our members social and professional networks.

What’s Your Favorite Place for Happy Hour?

Palmilla. The bartenders are absolute legends and can whip up some mean margaritas!

What’s Your Favorite Go-To Lunch Restaurant?

Brothers Burritos – their “Build Your Own Breakfast Bowls” offer a variety of healthy options, so I can get all the macros I need fast.

What’s Your Favorite South Bay Tradition?

I like the concerts on the beach at the end of summer, it’s chill and easy. You just grab your mate, a few bevies and a cheese board or two and you’re set for the afternoon.

What Brings you to California?

My business partner Evan Tyrrell and I looked into the prospect of F45 Training USA. We saw an opportunity to create a network of people with similar lifestyle values to ourselves. We knew we would make it successful and in my opinion Southern California is the perfect location for young entrepreneurs who want to network and build businesses. We opened our first location in February 2016 in La Jolla of San Diego, since then we have managed to successfully open another 2 studios. The second in Hermosa Beach in July 2017 and the third in East Hillcrest San Diego July this year. I am a true believer in surrounding myself with individuals who force you to be better. We have built a solid team of amazing individuals and I’m excited to see what we can do in 2019.

What do you love most about the South Bay?

The beaches – this is my favorite strip of sand in Southern California.
