Luke Sullivan moved to Arizona in 2006 to pursue his dream of making the 2008 Olympic team as a discus thrower. Injuries ultimately hampered his training so, despite qualifying to compete at the 2008 Olympic Trials, Luke chose to listen to his body and prevent further damage. After dedicating 20 years to training and competing, Luke officially retired from competitive discus throwing in June, 2008.
Next, He focused solely on changing people’s lives through fitness. Using the success he created from transforming personal-training clients of all body types, Luke launched Pinnacle Fitness in 2010. He has built Pinnacle Fitness into one of the premier movement education and corrective exercise gyms in Scottsdale. The foundation for the gym was built from the injuries Luke sustained while competing in track and field. Developing techniques to rehab his own body with no surgery, pain meds or invasive procedures. Luke now uses many of these methods with his clients and sees people’s lives change every day. Luke’s 20+ years of training have allowed him to work with all types of clientele. From athletes, to elderly, to post rehab and everywhere in between.
