I started going to Luke after injuring my back working out. Luke’s individualized approach was amazing. He didn’t assume what treatment would work and continuously evaluated to ensure what we were doing was making a positive impact. I can say that after 8 weeks working with Luke I am not only back to full strength and function but my back is stronger and more stable than it ever has been. In addition to getting my back up and running, he identified a few other areas that we could work to improve my overall health and prevent future injuries! I firmly believe without Luke’s approach I would have maybe seen a temporary fix, but with Luke I am now confident this will be a life long improvement. And for me, having his practice in the gym kept me in the habit of going even when I couldn’t lift, which kept my motivation up and didn’t lose that routine! If you are looking for a physical therapist, choose Luke!

To say that I'm happy with the level of care and impressed with my results after only 4 visits would be an enormous understatement . I have had chronic lower back pain for years and for the last 6 months it has been quite debilitating. I had been seeing another PT for a while without much luck, the VA doctors were giving me cortisol shots, talking about an epidural and had referred me to a neuro surgeon.....Then I luckily stumbled upon Achilles Fitness Institute and it has literally changed my life for the better. I'm now 95% pain free which is a miracle especially in such a short amount of time. I'm very impressed with the level of care and it was obvious from the first appointment that Luke was head and shoulders above any other PT I've seen. Do your body a favor and schedule your first appointment, I'm sure happy I did.

Working with Luke has been a game changer. I went through years of dealing with a hip injury that severely limited my workouts and even daily life. Then I had a major surgery, recovered and started with a personal trainer to build strength and muscle. But we got stuck on progressing because of surgery after effects and hip issues. Five sessions with Luke and we've almost corrected everything. Mind blowing difference in what I can now do. I'm not sure who's happier, me or my trainer. No more pain and can physically push myself now. Thank You!!
