Title. Double click me.


Welcome to my website.  My name is Bruce Johnson, and I offer my truly personal training services "delivered" at the Keepfit Fitness Studio at 3403 Carman Rd. Guilderland NY (= Schenectady 12303 for your GPS) or at your home. I work by appointment only; there is no gym to join or contracts to sign.


I have acquired substantial knowledge and experience, and really enjoy working with "my" people over 50 years of age; hence the name I chose for my business.  I do however, train younger adults too. All are welcome!

In our first meeting, a scheduled one-hour complementary consultation session, I will listen to your needs and goals, evaluate your ability to move, and answer any questions or concerns. (A detailed explanation of my methods and fitness philosophy follows on the "Program Page.") You can train with me once, twice or three times per week; it's totally up to you.

Please fill out my contact form and I will email you my rates the same day.


Have you gained weight and lost strength while going through the Covid crisis? If you have tried to get fit on your own with the many apps, videos, or free internet workouts and not made the progress you had hoped for, consider training with a real person who can professionally coach and guide you through the blitz of overwhelming and often contradictory fitness information. It can be tricky to not over-train or under-train.  What worked for you at a younger age will probably not be the best approach now.  Let me devise a fitness program that is just right for where your abilities are right now, and progress it safely when you are ready to do so confidently.  I have been a fitness enthusiast for a long time; I'm over 65 and I have had setbacks, discomfort and issues to overcome like maybe you are going through now or in the past. The roadblocks get trickier as you age!  If you've recently completed a physical therapy program due to an injury or surgery I'm the next logical step ( in my humble opinion) to getting you to move your body better.  It's not only about your muscles, either.  I can teach you little-known movement drills that will improve your balance system, breathing drills to calm you down, and teach you how to do proper aerobic monitoring (with a heart-rate watch) to improve your endurance safely.  I can even teach you some Tai Chi moves if you have any interest in that as well! One of my main goals is to help you feel better and be more flexible, so you can move your body better than you do now.  And if you can move better you will hopefully want to move more often. And if you move more often, you will be in better shape to fight or bounce back from whatever life throws at you!



If you are close to retirement or already there, I can help you improve your range of motion, flexibility, balance, endurance & strength.  So that the games and activities you finally have more time to do or play will go smoother and be more enjoyable. If you are in your 50's and pretty sedentary (and maybe added the Covid-20 pounds?), I urge you to re-boot your body by making fitness a higher priority in your life.  Think ahead about how good your body can look and feel in the future if you start working on it today.  It's never too late to improve your fitness! Let me help and guide you.  Whether it be at Keepfit Studio or your home, I am available to see you wherever you feel comfortable. Call or contact me today!  P.S.: I am fully vaccinated and booster-ized.  Keepfit is a private and clean oasis, and all equipment that clients touch during their session gets wiped down so that the next client touches only clean sanitized surfaces.

My Offerings:

(1.) Personal Training at KeepfitOne-to-one with me or semi-private (Two trainees together at same session with me.)  My pricing is based on a one hour long session.   The programming or agenda for the session is created to address your individual abilities, strengths, flexibility, goals, etc.  Everything that makes you unique!   It may take some time, patience and dedication for you to earn the results you seek, but I will try my best to be your favorite guide for the journey.  (See my "Program page" for more information.) New Offering: I am now offering half-hour sessions for private (1 to 1) training.

(2.) Personal training in your homeMy rates for coming to your home are identical to the rates at the studio, if you live within a 12 mile radius of Keepfit. ( I will consider going slightly beyond the 12 mile radius but additional charges will apply.)  I will bring my own equipment so you don't need to have any, although I do recommend you have some of your own for the days you don't have sessions with me. If you want to achieve measurable growth in your strength you really have to train 3 or more times per week consistently.  So if , for example, you see me once a week, I will expect you to do at least 2 workouts a week at home (or other gym) on your own. (I will create a program for you to follow at no additional charge.)


My No-Risk Pricing Details:

There are no contracts to sign or membership fees to pay. My rates are less than any of the "big box" gyms that offer private training as an option on top of their mandatory monthly fees.  You simply pay for your sessions weekly via cash, check, Venmo or Cash App.  Please see my "Program" page for more information and I have two videos here on the site: A tour of the Keepfit studio and a Kettlebell demonstration.  Thanks for stopping by!
