Degree of success

Published on 10 September 2015

The University of Bedfordshire brought Luke Levitt to town and he has stayed to open up his own fitness centre.

Having studied for a degree in Sports and PE at the internationally renowned college in Polhill Avenue, Luke set up as a trainer and has now opened a “collective” called LLPT in Dane Street, Bedford.

The entrance is tucked away near the old General Post Office facing St Loyes, but the premises opens up into a large suite of rooms for training and yoga, for personal fitness or group sessions.

Said Luke, aged 26, photographed with his girlfriend and his parents: “I had the idea of a collective but was looking for the right rooms to become available. We are not a gym but somewhere where people can book individual training or small group sessions in comfortable surroundings.”

An official launch night on Saturday September 5th was attended by a fit crowd of folk who will be clients at the new centre.

A raffle on the night to support another town centre venue, Sports Traider, a charity which helps young people get into team sports and training, raised £270.
