John Bruno Personal Fitness Trainer Penarth Celebrating 20 Years
John Bruno is celebrating a significant milestone: it’s the 20th anniversary of his setting up in business as a personal trainer. The field of personal training was in its infancy when John’s passion for health and fitness started, so he has seen many changes over the years.
“There were only 100 personal trainers in the UK when I started. I was a 24-year-old with a weightlifting qualification and I wanted to pursue my dream, so I set out, just me in a van with a skipping rope,” John recalls. “I travelled to wherever the work was and gradually built my clientele until I opened my first studio in 2000.
“The business grew and developed considerably over the years and we moved to the current 2500sq ft Fitness and Health Studio in Glebe Street, Penarth in 2008.
“It’s not a gym in the conventional sense – there’s no membership. What we offer is a collaborative holistic service with a team of 17 experienced trainers and therapists who provide clients with what they need to achieve their health and fitness goals,” he says.
“Clients choose the elements they want on an individual basis, combining training and therapy as required. We offer Pilates, Nordic walking, yoga, physiotherapy, McTimoney chiropractic, sports massage, cycling-coach, running-coach, triathlon-coach, nutrition, reflexology, aromatherapy, reiki, Indian head massage, hypnotherapy, hot stone massage, life coaching, style and image coaching, success coaching and pre and post-pregnancy massage.”
John Bruno’s clients are a mix of individuals (some of whom have trained with him for many years), businesses and athletes who are pursuing all aspects of fitness and health. The Studios in Penarth are designed for Pilates, yoga and private personal fitness training. The various therapists see their clients in smaller private rooms on the premises.
“The combined services provided by our team of experienced therapists and trainers enable clients to achieve the wellness and fitness they need to live long and stay healthy, whatever their goals,” says John.

John has introduced Skype Personal Training, the virtual way to exercise in the comfort of your own home, in the office or anywhere in the world. “Skype Personal Training is a one-to-one or small group video call where we train you over a web camera,” John explains.

(Testimonial for John Bruno)
Lydia says: I first met and trained with John 10 years ago at the very start of my golfing years, when we worked together on a few NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) skills. I have been working with John intensively for the last 10 months and feel I have become physically and mentally stronger as a person and as a professional golfer.
John has been a big part of my success this season and at the Dubai Ladies Masters in December 2010, where we had a 10-week plan in place in preparation for the event. I love working with him and his team and I’m looking forward to the hard work he has in store for me this coming winter in preparation for the 2012 Ladies European Tour.
