Get Healthy, Get Strong
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 and personal trainer, as I love helping others learn and succeed, love bettering myself through my own training journey and practicing what I preach, and also, I love continuing my own education as a fitness professional and regularly read, attend seminars, and practice new skills in both nutrition and fitness. 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 athletes as well as out of shape people looking to get back in shape, and elderly people with orthopedic problems such as hip and knee replacements, and everyone in between of all ages. 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 own education and development, I have been coached by and mentored under some of the best in the industry over the past 18 years. I look forward to sharing this knowledge and these skills with you.

Below I have created an outline of my background and services so that you have the choice to read everything in depth or quickly find the section(s) that are of most interest to you.
Looking forward to hearing from you and thank you for your interest,
Yours in Fitness,

How to Get Started

To start out with, I would like to offer you a complimentary fitness assessment. This is where we will discuss goals and training schedule. This way, you will see I am the most qualified trainer to help you tone up, lose body fat, build muscle, gain strength and look and feel great. I will teach you a complete comprehensive program including protocols for cardiovascular aerobic and resistance training. Also, we will better organize your nutrition to enhance your results. I 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).
I ask you to read the reviews on my profile. See what my previous and current clients have to say about training with me. Also, I have many certifications but would like to specifically point out that I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). This is considered the gold standard of certifications; it is the hardest to attain and is the only one accepted by the NCAA for working with Division One athletes.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. 

The best way to contact me to schedule your complimentary fitness assessment is to text my cell phone, number above.
Texting is good because if I am with a client, I can get back to you when I am on break. If you would rather call my cell phone, please feel free. However, keep in mind that I may not be able to pick up as I may be with a client. However, I do regularly check my messages.

Location of Training and Nutrition Coaching

Option 1:

I also train people at the Indoor Pool and Wellness Center at Sun N Fun RV Park which is about 5 minutes off the Fruitville road exit of I75. This is a larger facility with more amenities than the smaller performance center. This gym has members that live in the park part of the year, stay in the park in their RV’s, and also sells gym membership to the community at large. Therefore, the gym is not as private as the other small performance center I train at. But it does have a nice atmosphere and is very clean and has locker rooms. PLEASE NOTE, YOU DO NOT NEED A MEMBERSHIP TO TRAIN WITH ME AT THIS GYM. However, without a membership, you will only be allowed in the facility during our designated training times. If you would like a membership, my personal training clients are eligible for a discount on the monthly rate. I will give you directions when you schedule your assessment; the address is:
Sun Outdoors Sarasota (Formerly Sun N Fun) RV Park and Resort
7125 Fruitville Rd
Sarasota, FL 34240

Performance Training and Strength and Conditioning for Sports

I have worked with many NCAA Division I and Division II athletes in my career. I have worked with NCAA and professional athletes from many sports including ice hockey, water polo, basketball, football, wrestling, all type of martial arts, field hockey, soccer, lacrosse, golf, track and field, boxing, and tennis. My highlights include 3 Olympians in ice hockey (2 gold medal), two Patty Kazmaier Award winning NCAA Female Division I Hockey Players, 2012 Division Champion and 4th Place National finishers (Mercyhurst Water Polo 2012), several golden glove champion and top finishers, and countless martial arts and jiu jitsu competition winners.

Elderly Clients / Senior Fitness

Many ask me, because they see that I have worked with so many NCAA athletes if I work with older clients. The answer is “yes”. Elderly clients are some of my favorite clients to work with because they all get good results and it is fun to watch people progress and get positive results as they go. Most think that training athletes and training elderly is very different, but in reality, it is not. In both cases, we are trying to get someone to be stronger and move better. So, the real difference is just the “starting point” of each person, but the process is very similar. I get just as much satisfaction watching someone who could not stand up without using their hands, stand up for the first time without using their hands. And I am ecstatic when I see this same person stand up 10 times while holding a weight in their hands. And this is the norm when working with seniors.
