Why do you need personal training?

Because your body did not come with an owner’s manual, it’s important to find a formally educated and experienced personal trainer who is certified by an accredited organization and has experience with the health goals you have set for yourself. John Bruno has a Master of Science degree in Exercise Science with a concentration in performance enhancement and injury prevention. He holds multiple certifications in strength and conditioning modalities. Bruno is also an adjunct faculty for World Instructor Training Schools and frequently teaches personal training certification courses at State College of Florida. In other words, Bruno trains aspiring people to be personal trainers, so you can be confident you are working with one of the top experts in the area.

What is Included in Our Personal Training Programs?

In our personal training programs, we will teach you a complete comprehensive program including protocols for resistance training, glycol tic metabolic conditioning, and aerobic cardio respiratory fitness. Copious notes will be taken for each participant so we can track progress and teach a progression into more difficult or specialized exercises. As you train with us, we will be teaching you concepts for program design so you can learn how to alter your own programming over time (called periodization in the strength and conditioning world).

Also, we will help you to better organize your nutrition to enhance your results. As part of your personal training program, we will track your body composition regularly as we go. This will ensure we are creating the desired changes (for example, to make sure we are losing fat and not muscle). Body composition scans will be doing using the in body™ bioelectrical impedance scan. The In body™ will produce a printed report that we can use to track progress over time. We also encourage tape measurements and before and after pictures for those interested in changes in body composition such as fat loss. All of this will be done with a friendly motivational coaching approach.

You trust your car to a mechanic, and your pipes to a plumber, so why wouldn’t you invest in expert advice to maintain your most prized possession – your body and your health? You’re worth it!

Check out the reviews

I ask you to read the reviews page. See what our previous and current clients have to say about our customized personal training programs here in Sarasota and Manatee County Florida. Bruno has manycertifications in strength and conditioning, personal training, and fitness, but would like to specifically point out that he is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) under the National Strength and Conditioning Association. This is considered the gold standard of fitness certifications. It is the hardest to attain because of the rigorousin-depth nature of the exam content which is deeply rooted in exercise physiology, biomechanics, and nutrition. This is the only fitness certification accepted by the NCAA for working with Division One athletes and is held by most strength and conditioning coaches working with professional teams. In addition to this, Bruno holds a master’s degree in exercise science with a focus on performance enhancement and injury prevention.
