John Bruno Strength and Conditioning

Greetings From John Bruno

Hello! My name is John Bruno, and I am a former NCAA strength and conditioning coach and martial arts instructor originally from Erie Pennsylvania, where I worked for about 10 years at Mercyhurst University, also in Erie. I am truly passionate about my career as a strength and conditioning coach, personal trainer, nutrition coach, and martial arts instructor. I enjoy helping others learn and succeed. Additionally, I value bettering myself through my training journey and practicing what I preach. I am a consummate learner and enjoy continuing my education as a fitness professional and regularly read, attend seminars, and practice new skills in fitness, nutrition, and martial arts. In late 2014, after finishing graduate school, I moved to Sarasota Florida where I now reside full time; I live in The Meadows area.

I have trained elite NCAA and professional athletes as well as the “average Joe” and out of shape people looking to get back in shape. I have worked with elderly people with orthopedic problems such as hip and knee replacements, aspiring youth and teen athletes, and everyone in between of all ages with differing fitness levels and goals. I have the education and experience to help anyone succeed. I am excited to work with you and guide you to success.

I am very much looking forward to helping you succeed in your fitness journey, whatever that may be for you. In my education and development, I have been coached by, trained under, and attended workshops from some of the best educators in strength and conditioning; names such as Pavel Tsatsouline, Dr. Stuart McGill, Brett Jones, Mike Boyle, Gray Cook, Lee Burton, Steve Cotter, Steve Maxwell, Eric Cressey, Dr. Mark Cheng, and Dan John. I look forward to sharing the knowledge and skills that I have acquired over the past 20+ years with you.

Looking forward to hearing from you and thank you for your interest,

Yours in Fitness,
