Hey, what's up guys!

My name is Luke and I am the owner and founder of That Helpful Dude. I'm from Hampshire in the UK. I am a CYQ qualified fitness instructor, a budding entrepreneur, an eclectic music lover and an avid Argentine Tango dancer. I enjoy keeping myself in shape, playing my acoustic guitar, participating in a bit of shower-oke (not that the neighbors are too keen) and of course, helping other people out where I can.

My mission is to help you improve the areas in life you wish were just that little bit better.

Over at we focus on helping people to "Just Be Your Best Self." We offer advice, videos, free downloads and product recommendations on ways to improve different aspects of your life.

Whether you're looking to improve your health and fitness, your love life, help starting your own online business, learn how to play an instrument. Here at That Helpful Dude our aim is providing you the best information possible on the subject so you can make the right choice for yourself.
