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!

Tour of Keepfit Studio

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 coaching when the pandemic hit last spring, and during the summer 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 again forces us to adjust how and where to exercise, I am here and ready to help you be your best self. The time to take action and get your body strong for what the future could bring is right now! Invest in yourself!

My Offerings:

(1.) Personal Training at Keepfit.  One-to-one or small group (4 or less per group)

(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 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 8 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. 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.
