About Luke D'Astoli
Luke wakes up everyday obsessed with the challenge of helping others to enjoy better lives.
This is driven by a deep seated understanding that we only get one life in which to fulfill our dreams and we need to make the most of our time. A worthwhile life should encompass the full range of human experiences of love, joy, awe, wonder, excitement and hope, while acknowledging that there will be times of anger, disappointment, fear and frustration. We all seek different avenues to achieve the positive feelings and avoid the negatives but for Luke it comes down to two main objectives:
Through these two objectives, we can find purpose to our existence.
For Luke, these objectives have manifested themselves as starting his own personal training business. It is an acknowledgement of the vital importance of health as a foundation to quality of life that Luke chose this path.
A couple of experiences demonstrate the importance of a healthy mind and body. Being on the holiday of a lifetime in Europe is a fundamentally exciting and awe inspiring experience but being laid up in bed with a vicious cold will diminish even the wonders of Rome.
Or you can imagine standing on Whitehaven beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, with the white sand between your toes and the sun beating down upon you, and you spend your whole time worrying about what your body looks like to others.
Our health dictates the quality of our experience.
Symptoms of compromised health can include: injury, illness, body fat accumulation, depression, mood swings, chronic fatigue and allergies.
All of these things compromise our one and only human experience and to Luke, that is unacceptable.
What has made this pursuit of health in our modern times more complicated is the fact that our lifestyles have changed more in the past 200 years than they did in the previous 2000 years. What we eat, how we move, the hours we sleep and the mental stress we face bare little resemblance to what was happening throughout our evolution. So our solutions must be grounded in what worked historically while utilising some of the latest advances in scientific knowledge and understanding.
At the moment, there are some people who seem to have achieved this optimal healthy state and are thriving on life. While for others, it is a daily struggle. This just doesn't seem fair and while life wasn't meant to be fair, as so many people have told Luke, he is on a mission to bring some fairness to the world. Sharing the lessons he has learned from world class experts in the industry, and from the experience gathered from working with hundreds of different people.
