Bruno’s a pro. I trained under his guidance for roughly 2 years and learned a ton. He’s extremely knowledgable; He’s generous with is time; He pushed me to be better. I have some physical issues with my back and Bruno was accommodating and helped me work through lifts, pulls, and exercises that would help me make the gains I was looking for while also preventing injury.When I’m ready to train again, Bruno will be my first call.
John Bruno is the most knowledgeable personal trainer I’ve ever worked with (I’ve trained with 6 others). John takes great pains to get to know your strengths and weaknesses, and then he formulates the sessions to address the weaknesses, but is very careful not to push the trainee too hard while progressing.
He is very knowledgeable about how to stay safe while exercising and he is very good at explaining it in a way that is easy to understand and apply when I am working out on my own. I like that it is not just running and weight lifting with him and that he incorporates TRX, yoga, and body weight exercises. Thank you!
Living with daily back pain for over 20 years resulted in my search for an excellent trainer specializing in back rehabilitation. John Bruno changed my life forever. I was pain free after working with John for two weeks. He taught me the proper way to strengthen my back which I do faithfully every day. I am extremely thankful for his wisdom, not to mention professionalism. I highly recommend John Bruno.
I was spending a few months in Florida and wanted to change up my workout routine. John was fantastic to workout with. I’m not new to training and he taught me so many things, really taking time to explain the why’s. I can still hear his voice in my head every time I do a squat 🤣, so I know I’m still doing them the right way. I look forward to working with him again the next time I’m in town
I’ve hired John with his team to help my mom get back into shape for ski season for the last 4 months after not having worked out in over 10 years. They were amazing. My mother felt excited and energized to go workout, she saw real progress in her fitness and strength, and ultimately, she was able to handle herself on the slopes. We’re definitely going to continue working with John & his team!
Hired Bruno to work with my 11-year-old son. He has had one training session so far that went great. My son is really looking forward to his next session. We bought a 12-session package to start off with. I found his prices to be competitive.
Bruno played a key role in helping me feel more comfortable in the gym and reach my fitness goals. He is quick to respond to any form of communication and worked around any injuries to help strengthen the surrounding muscle groups and build strength back up. He was also very understanding of my odd work hours and set up times that would suit me even if they weren’t the most convenient for him! cares about his clients for sure! would recommend
Very professional, full of energy and always gives me a great work out.
My son has been training with John for the past year. John’s depth of knowledge is impressive and he’s extremely passionate about what he does which makes him an excellent motivator. I’ve worked with quite a few trainers over the years and John is one of the best I’ve ever encountered.
So far it has been a great experience.
It was great working with John! He is knowledgeable, professional, responsive, caring, and supportive. I was only in the area for six weeks, and John made every workout count coaching me so that I could succeed both with him in the studio and on my own. John is very passionate about what he does, and it came through in all my sessions. I appreciated his respect for safety as well as his ability to tailor the workout for my needs and goals. I will be back when I return to the area.
Working out with Bruno has been awesome. I came to him because I wanted to get back into the gym after a 8 year hiatus and also to help me with some back pain (2 bulging disc) that I’ve had for about 10 years. Working with Bruno has been very educational, and I feel better than I have in a very long time. Bruno is great to listen to your concerns and helping you become the healthiest you can be. I would recommend anybody to Bruno.
John is great. He is very good at what he does, and I attribute it to his endless experience and passion. He takes his time to review the safe and correct way to perform movements and exercises. I never feel rushed through a session. I have made many gains and learned a great deal from him.
Bruno is the first trainer I’ve ever worked with. I felt comfortable with him right away. He’s very good about explaining what you’re doing, what muscles you’re targeting and really patient with teaching proper form. I always look forward to my sessions with him and have seen really great improvement in my stamina and strength. I can’t recommend him enough!
John is an exceptional trainer. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about his work. He tailors the training to each client’s needs, keeping their safety as his priority. John has helped me rehab my knee from an injury. I was still able to work toward my fitness goals while protecting my knee. He is also very personable.
I’ve gone to personal trainers throughout the Northeast United States before moving to Sarasota and John is the best that I have ever been to. I reached out to him two months into the pandemic while working from home. I found my muscles in a state of atrophy and I was slowly putting on weight. I’m over 50 now and knew it would only get more difficult to reverse if I waited too much longer. I searched for someone online and was instantly impressed by his resume – which is understated. He is so intelligent, and the workouts are never boring. At this point, I am five months in at 3 times per week and I have never felt this strong. The best part – I have not suffered a single injury while training with John. I have always suffered injuries when moving through my own workout plans and the setbacks have lasted months. When I injure myself outside of our training (tennis most recently), he is quick to tweak our plan not only for healing, but to strengthen to prevent injury in the future. Sometimes it is hard to measure strength when you do not use your muscles outside of working out. I remember getting on a flight about 3 months into my training and being able to place my heavy suitcase into the overhead bin with complete ease. That made me feel about 15 years younger and stronger. BTW, I had to choose three out of five reasons that I like to work with John – would have selected all five attributes – he is also a value to me, and he is always punctual (and understanding when I am not). John is the real deal.
Bruno was always cooperative with my busy schedule and never made me feel bad about not being able to get a workout in one week. I’m prone to injuries from past sports and he helped recover from my injuries by teaching me the right technique in common exercises I do. I would recommend anyone to go to him. He is very educated and has a lot of experience.
Great experience working with John, will definitely work with him again
Helping me understand the importance of preforming the exercises the right way to prevent injury.
John has been helping me with my back, I have made huge strides it only 3 weeks. I had a lot of predicting injuries and already I feel younger, more flexible, and I have more energy!
John is an excellent trainer. He has a ton of knowledge, and he is very thorough.
John worked with me 3 times a week for about a year until we all shut down. He is very knowledgeable and able to communicate so you can understand exactly what’s going on! No hesitation in recommending.
Very knowledgeable in all aspects of what he teaches. Highly recommend especially for those wanting to learn.
John Bruno is the most knowledgeable, patient, and through trainer my son has ever been to. He takes the time to communicate the reasoning on different lifts and stretches and will work on training to a specific sport or need. My son has made amazing gains and has learned a lot thanks to John!
John has been great to work with. I’ve been training with him for a few months now and I’ve been steadily improving my strength. It’s helped reduce some back pain and made a medical recovery much easier to get through. He’s careful about tailoring the exercises to your needs and abilities and will keep pushing you to get better.
I hired John to help my dad with his strength, flexibility, and cardio conditioning. I haven’t worked with John directly, but I hear from my dad that he’s incredibly impressed with John’s professionalism, skill and approach. My dad feels stronger after just a little time, and more confident with working out with John and on his own!
John’s credentials are what first attracted my husband and I to his personal training services. Five years later I still look forward to my training sessions with John and how much I find I am still learning. Communicate your needs and John will work with you to improve whatever your goals are to feel better! I am so grateful for time well spent and look forward to the future of staying healthy with John’s encouragement!
Everything about working with John has been fantastic. His knowledge in regard to strengthening/conditioning is deep and diverse. 4 months into training with John, and I’ve made progress far surpassing any other trainer I’ve ever used. I will continue working with John and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get stronger and/or lose weight! Easy 5 stars!
Excellent coaching based on a wealth of experience and training. Able to identify even slight flaws in technique that lead to better performance. Surprising breadth of knowledge regarding fitness/strength. Keeps good records for reference. Maintains interest with changes in routine.
I have worked with a personal trainer on and off for the past 15-20 years. I have been training with John for the past 3 years, since moving to FL full time. John is by far the most knowledgeable, professional, and skilled trainer I have experienced. He has a real passion for his work and is a wonderful teacher! John is highly educated on all aspects of the human muscular and skeletal body, and how the different parts work together. He recently added nutrition coach to his list of credentials, and I have been thrilled with the results I’ve had by combining his nutrition program with my training. Not only have I lost weight, but I now have more energy and have learned how to maintain a strong body and live a healthier lifestyle that should serve me well for a long and healthy life. I highly recommend John Bruno!
I am a snowbird from Chicago. I’ve always had a personal trainer but never one who really wanted to make a difference in my life. I contacted John Bruno thru the internet because his credentials were so outstanding and i needed to satisfy my guilt from overeating and sitting around. However, I never bargained for a trainer who was not willing to do my bidding and treat me like the sophisticated lady which i thought i was. oh oh…la la land is over. John immediately assessed my condition (chronic back pain and a bone-on-bone knee problem) and the work began. After 2/1/2 months of training (3 times a week) John taught me exercises to strengthen my back, reduce the stress on my knee, improve my posture and made me realize the importance of continued exercise to maintain a healthy life style. Going back to Chicago in a few days but taking with me a wealth of knowledge and information to carry me thru the summer until I meet up with John again in November.
John is an excellent Trainer. He is extremely knowledgeable and knows how to help you with numerous needs. I had serous back pain and he has helped me resolve through his training knowledge and techniques.
My husband and I have been working out four days a week during the winter season for the past three years. John is amazingly qualified and conscientious to research and develop a program to help my husband to regain strength, flexibility, and confidence after his debilitating stroke. John is extremely supportive and encouraging along the journey. He even communicates with our trainer at home to ensure that our progress continues (sends videos and suggestions) through the summer. Fantastic coach!
Fantastic trainer! Really pushed me to improve my strength while focusing on form. I have experienced several injuries from unsafe workouts in the past, but John is committed to teaching solid foundations that lead to better workouts and even better results!! He is my go-to trainer!!
John was a complete professional. He took the time to fully understand my specific needs resulting from degenerative spinal issues and damaged ligaments. He created programs of exercises to improve the strength of particular muscle groups to build strength and alleviate pain as well as to improve my overall fitness. A really friendly, communicative and understanding pro, he even made video demonstrations for me to help ensure I continue to do the exercises correctly once I got back to the UK. My rating would be 150%
John was very personable and professional while working with my two sons. Their strength and confidence grew with each session. We will continue to use John and refer him to many other young athletes.
Bruno was excellent. The first time we spoke over the phone he wanted to know my goals. After scheduling an appointment, I had to get it rescheduled he was perfectly okay with it. Like I didn’t get a tad bit of an attitude. I notice these things with other professionals. When I went to him we had another discussion then he measured my body fat and told me what I should do and eat in order not to loss the fat but turn it into muscle weight instead. Which was super awesome, where as another person told me I should loss it then gain muscle back. After that we did a light workout and by light I mean it was a heavy workout for me lol. Then we went out quotes. Quotes we’re not bad I couldn’t afford some of it and he said he can do customs quotes for me. I unfortunately had to move away to another state, if not I’d be willing to stay long term with him. Do not go with another person this guy here is truly amazing.
John Bruno is very knowledgeable and has a lot of varied education and experience to be qualified for his job. He is dedicated and able to adjust workouts to deal with my arthritis. He pushes me with my strength training but does not overdo. John Bruno has also been very flexible with scheduling. I would not hesitate to recommend him as a personal trainer, and I have been working out with him for three months now, and plan to continue for the long term.
I’ve overcome certain physical issues with John’s expertise. My back, shoulder and hip pains are far less now than what they were. I have better range of motion too. He breaks everything down so you understand it when he is training you. I couldn’t recommend a better physical trainer than John Bruno!
John is an awesome trainer. He is creative and makes sure that you are challenged appropriately. He uses a variety of tools to keep things moving and interesting. I can see my progress as we go along. He ups the weights as I am ready and doesn’t push me beyond what I can do. He is thorough and explains the WHY of everything. He really knows what he is doing! The time goes very quickly.
Bruno was a joy to work with! He really knows how the body works and makes sure to educate you about why you’re doing the exercises he is showing you as well as taking the time to make sure all your nutritional questions are answered. I especially liked that he made sure to switch up my workouts, so it felt different every day/week. Bruno always made the time to fit me in with my ever-changing work schedule, even if it meant he had to get up at 5am! Bruno helped me achieve quite a few goals: getting my weight down, getting my body fat percentage down and my muscle mass up. I would recommend Bruno to anybody looking for a personal trainer and if I hadn’t moved out of state, I would STILL be working out with him weekly.
John taught me the correct way to exercise so that I can exercise on my own when I move away. His professionalism & insight to provide a hard workout while being easy on my joints was amazing. Highly skilled & very knowledgeable. 👍
I was searching for a personal trainer to help me get in shape for the military and John was the first to contact me. I was impressed with his qualifications and professionalism. We scheduled a meeting and discussed goals and plans which led me to be more impressed with his knowledge on how to properly gain strength. I’ve been working with John for 4 months and it has been productive, gaining the res
