A Word from our Founder

“If time is your most precious commodity then your body therefore is your most precious asset. Who would you trust with it? 

Hey, I’m Stuart Jamieson – Founder & Head Coach of The PT Studio and I welcome you to our website.

If you’re wondering who I am then let me give you a bit of my background story, experience in the health and fitness industry and what the PT Studio is all about.

I’m 28 years old, born and raised in this little town and its surroundings and people have shaped a huge part of my life. I am a Professional Athlete, Coach and Physique Transformation Specialist.


I am a Powerlifter and have competed over 8 years racking up a line of achievements I am very proud of. I currently hold over 25 records including Scottish, British, Commonwealth and European records for Squat, Bench Press, Deadlift and Total weight lifted in both junior and senior categories over two different weight classes. I also have a World Record in the Deadlift – Lifting 286kg at under 60kg body weight.

This lift secured my place as pound for pound, one of the biggest lifts in history. (Pictured Below Just Moments after Breaking the World Record – Photgraphy credited to Daria Klepikova & The WRPF)



I’m very proud of my achievements but I am more proud of the journey it took to get here. I was born with multiple disabilities such as Spina Bifida, Scoliosis, Kyphosis and Diastematomyelia.


Now I know all these long medical terms mean nothing to others but to better explain what these conditions mean, my spine is what you would call a beautiful mess!It curves due to the scoliosis and Kyphosis, it is split in two from the Diastematomyelia and when I was born, the spinal cord had to be operated on to save my life due to the Spina Bifida.

I wasn’t given much of a prognosis and my parents were actually told that if I survived past my second birthday, I would not be able to walk. I now have the privilege to travel all around the world to compete and do what I love to not only lift some heavy ass weights, but hopefully inspire people along the way.

I compete in able bodied competition. My purpose for this is not for pity or sympathy or to make it seem like I’ve had it any harder than anyone around me.

I simply tell you this in hope to change peoples perceptions on what is possible. To show that we set our own limitations in life.


See, I wasn’t born in amazing shape nor did it come quickly to me either… I had to work hard for it! And its that process and journey that gives me a key understanding that allows me to help guide my clients to their goals.

Happiness comes from progress, not the outcome. It is the journey to the goal that is ALWAYS the most fulfilling!

It has always been my goal to be able to help people achieve their own fitness goals and become the best version of themselves.

Fast track the time 10 years later within the Health & Fitness Industry and now I’ve opened my very own Transformation Centre, doing what I love and passing on what it really takes to completely transform your body shape!

I have brought together the Best Team of Coaches in the area to raise the standard of Personal Training and Coaching Services to provide you with the very BEST Results!
