Background on the Studio

I was really lucky to take a class with the owner, Luke Milton. He has so much energy, its insane! Anytime you start to feel like its getting tough, he’ll crack a joke to make you laugh. He played professional rugby in Australia and brought over his passion for health and fitness to LA three years ago and started Training Mate a year later. Something pretty cool to keep the authenticity of the brand is that all the staff are Australian and not to mention one of the friendliest teams that I’ve met.
