Luke is a speaker, endurance adventurer and mindset coach.
He has run through the Sahara desert, down Mt Everest, and through a tropical forest in China without any food, water, money, and with a plane to catch. In 2015, Luke completed a self-created ‘Ultimate Triathlon’ from Morocco to Monaco. This 2000km in 12 day cross-continental adventure pushed both his mind and body to their limits and beyond.
An award winning documentary was made about this world first feat, and Luke was mentioned in Forever Sports magazine’s 50 fittest athletes in the world for 2016.
Luke has completed all these challenges, and many more, after battling with depression, and retiring because of physical injuries from a professional soccer career.
