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. (Rt. 146) in Guilderland/ Schenectady 12303 or remotely via your computer. 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 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 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. We will all wear masks, all the time.  Your safety is my top priority.


These are crazy, stressful and uncertain times. I explored "remote" or on-line coaching when the pandemic hit last spring, and during the summer I went outside with clients at their homes.  Keepfit reopened so now I am focused here. We provide a safe and personal experience via our small studio format with either one-to-one or small-group training by appointment.  I still offer on-line sessions for people who prefer to stay at home to exercise. The way I personally do remote training is not much different than the way I do it here in the studio.  The studio just gives us more options and "flow". With remote training we unfortunately have to pay more attention to making sure we can both see each other on camera! Also we can be limited by the space and "fitness tools" available in your house. But either at the studio or online, you still get me to coach you personally. So if you have tried to get fit on your own with the many apps, videos, or free internet workouts and gotten nowhere, consider training with a real person who can coach and guide you through the blitz of overwhelming and often contradictory fitness information. Whether you are just a shy person and maybe don't feel comfortable doing workouts in public, or the Covid-19 pandemic has still kept you from exercising due to safety concerns, I just want to say this: Whether you are ready now or in the future, I am here and will be available to see you wherever you feel comfortable. 

My Offerings:

(1.) Personal Training at KeepfitOne-to-one or small group training of only 4 people per group.  (Groups can be formed at random, by 3 of your friends with you, or by requested members' collaboration with each other, but I also desire to have some groups of age 65 plus only, because this population (my cohort) is the most under-served in the fitness industry, and I want to change that here and now!  I am trying to start and build up a little tribe of older fitness enthusiasts, here near the mid-point between downtown Albany and downtown Schenectady!  My pricing below is all based on a one hour long session, (whether it be with a group with me or individually with me.) The programming or agenda for the session is created to address your individual abilities, strengths, flexibility, goals, etc.  Everything that makes you unique!  I am not here to mold you into a pre-existing category.  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.)

(2.) Online Training via Zoom platform. This is a true personal instruction and individualized programming experience where we meet by appointment in your home via your computer, tablet or phone. No cookie-cutter programs here! I will asses your abilities and develop a program that will safely challenge you. We will do body-weight exercises and/or use fitness "tools" you may already have at home or have access to.

Remote coaching is for clients who want a nice and competent human (that's me) to actually guide, coach, hold accountable and support you in achieving your goals. And since I don't have any overhead costs with this option, I can offer lower pricing. It's a win-win. What may have started as a Covid-19 related temporary-to-stay-alive , band-aid model has evolved.  People like it and I believe online coaching will continue to grow.

(3.) Join my Tai Chi For Beginners Small Group Classes at Keepfit, forming now!

Come and have some fun, de-stress, and learn something mindful and fun that you will be able to do for the rest of your life. (See more info on my "Program" & "Blog" pages.)

My No-Risk Membership Details:

There are no contracts or membership fees. We start off with only a week by week commitment for the first four weeks, then we switch to a single month commitment after that. (So for the price per week, just divide the figures above by 4.)  All personal training clients start off working privately (1:1) for the first 4 sessions. This is to insure you get off to a proper and safe start.  After that you can switch into group training if you desire to choose that path. Also, I am willing to mix in-person training with on-line training. For example you could train in-person at Keepfit on one day and train on-line with me at a later day that week.  This would lower your cost and possibly be more convenient as well.  And finally, I am willing to come to your home or office if you have received full vaccinations for Covid-19, as I have done. Please see my "Program" page for more information.


For Tia Chi clients, there are no private lessons. Tai Chi will always be a class ( at Keepfit) of 4 people maximum from day one. Included is on-line access to professional videos, to reinforce the classes and help you practice at home at your leisure. A great value that will enable you to learn all 24 "short form" postures very quickly if you apply yourself!
