Hi, I’m Stewart Milne and I’m the founder of Stewart Milne Personal Training (SMPT). I’m a personal trainer and BioSignature practitioner based in Reading, Berkshire. I’ve been a fully qualified personal trainer since December 2009, gaining my qualifications with Premier Training International and the Poliquin Group. Both are highly respected organisations within the health and fitness sector.
I have always had love and passion for fitness training and I started my professional fitness career at Hanover International, which was before and then became Kirtons Farm. Now most people will know it as Copthorne Reading.
I became a Duty Manager there and was managing over two sites. One, being Copthorne Reading and the other being Madejski Stadium. The leisure facilities were known as ‘Le Club’. Madejski’s Le Club is still up and running but unfortunately the Le Club at Copthorne Reading is no more.
I had vast amounts or training there including Pool Plant, Lifeguard, First Aid and of course Fitness Instructing.
I have always been the sporty type but my main love has always been football and general fitness training. I started playing football at a very young age and I played for Reading Town Football Club. Whilst at Reading Town I went on to have trials at Reading Football Club and Crystal Palace Football Club.
Before I became a personal trainer I used to have one. I made the choice to have a PT because I knew that’s what I wanted to be. When I started working with him I quickly realised how incorrect my training technique was. It was a little embarrassing if I’m honest. Still, I knuckled down, listened and learned many qualities from my PT.
Later that year I then went on to complete my personal training course with Premier Training International. Now, with over 10 years experience, and along with a great team, I’ve been able to build a solid foundation for client’s to enjoy their fitness journey with motivational and inspirational trainers. Together. Everyone. Achieves. More.
