"I've been working with Callum for the last year and I have been incredibly impressed by his versatility in deriving new ways to keep me progressing over lockdown. Our gym-based sessions have been challenging and enjoyable and I really noticed an increase in my strength when training for my sport. I was always able to send him videos of my lift for feedback to improve my technique and safety of my lifts.
As his work is online this was instrumental in tracking my progression. Plus it added a personal touch by regularly communicating with him which I found highly valuable. His knowledge and approachability is second to none and I strongly suggest anyone looking to develop their sport specific physical attributes to approach him to work with you
Recently, I have been selected for the long list on Scottish freestyle wrestling squad. This has been a massive accomplishment for me, and Callum’s help has been instrumental in getting my body prepared for that. On top of that he is a lovely person. Highly recommend his services and ability."

"Where can I Start? Well Callum is the man. End of testimonial. I kid. I have been an online client with Callum for quite some time now, since about middle of lockdown 1. In December I said to Callum “I know I’m not your most consistent client, so thanks for sticking by me”. Immediately Callum Reassured me. He said “I’m not going to axe you if you are struggling, I’m here to help! What can I do to help?” This gave me confidence and reassurance that he isn’t just a coach and isn’t just in it for the money. He is actually here to help me improve and develop, helping me unlock my hidden potential both physically and mentally.
From this point I really worked hard, checking in with Callum after every session and sending over training footage as requested. Callum broke down each video and gave me detailed feedback, really helping from a coaching perspective. Not only has my deadlift technique improved hugely, but the actual weight I’m lifting has dramatically increased. My squat technique has also improved dramatically and closing in on lifetime Pb’s, and I have never felt so confident on Bench press in my life!
The knowledge Callum possesses is endless, and if he doesn’t know, he researches and explains. He leaves no stone unturned and doesn’t over complicate anything. It’s a week at a time, session by session.
Like I said - Callum is the man"

"If you are looking for a professional coach to take you to the next level, Callum is your man. Since becoming an online client, Callum has provided me with an elite coaching service supplying me with programming, technique analysis and nutritional guidance. He also has an excellent eye for detail. Through analysing and feeding back on my videos Callum has helped me improve all of my lifts and movements. During lockdown he has amended my program and tailored it to equipment I have at home, ensuring I have a good foundation in place for when the gyms reopen. Not only is he a trusted coach, Callum is also a great guy to work with. I would highly recommend Stewart Athletic Development to anyone looking to take their physical readiness to the next level, regardless of ability."

"I started with Callum last year to prepare me to playing Rugby following a long time period off. Callum's training, guidance and support through this process allowed me to regain confidence that I could still perform to my optimal level without risking injury. After returning to playing, he was able to guide me through the process of maintaining the physical attributes I had gained in pre season throughout the length of the whole rugby season"

"This past year Callum ran the Women's performance hockey S&C programme. He developed our programme with unique exercises specific to our movement on the pitch. He helped the team gain confidence in the gym and was an integral part part of our improvement! Callum also helped initiate a new MAS running programme with our coach. These sprints pushed every girl on the team to our limits, but when we tested later in the season versus when we started we were all faster! Callum was dedicated to each individuals improvement and it has been a privilege to work with him this year"

"Callum took over our S+C program at the beginning of this year and has had a tremendous impact on the team. He created comprehensive programs that developed everyones athleticism and also brought a coaching style that was adaptable and beneficial to everyone. With his knowledge he was able to adapt endlessly to help some individuals gain confidence in the gym, others to seamlessly recover from injury, and to push our top athletes. He is a hugely dedicated and encouraging coach that has advanced my own and our teams abilities and training"

"As a coach, Callum was able to create unique programmes that were suitable for all levels of experience and ability on our team. His vast knowledge of rugby and fitness is evident from the marked improvement of our players in the gym, which translated to better performance on the pitch. He was able to induct new members new members of the gym with sessions that also provided advanced movements for experienced players, whilst adhering and adapting to the requests of the coaches and captain. The Saints women’s rugby football club thoroughly enjoyed Callum’s coaching style and the tools with which he provided us for next years season!"
