Bruce Gilbert's passion for fitness began at a young age when he realized that a commitment to health is liberating. As he grew older he realized how rewarding it would be to share his passion and help others achieve their own goals. Bruce wants to show people how to take charge of their health and well being without accepting a particular condition or diagnosis as their fate. With more than 15 years as a personal trainer, Bruce brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to his clients. He keeps up to date on the latest techniques and information on health and fitness. His top priority is to maximize the benefits of each workout and minimize the risk of injury. He makes every training experience more enjoyable by using variety and a sense of humor.

The concept of why, as well as how to perform an exercise is key to truly understanding your fitness program. What this means is; you need to know the reason you are doing a particular exercise, not just the correct form. Without this knowledge you are just following someone else's workout routine which may not be suitable for your particular needs and imbalances. Years of favoring the dominant side of your body takes it's toll on your ability to move fluidly and use your body efficiently. The over 40 client has special concerns and needs a trainer with Bruce's expertise as he will address your imbalances more in depth. He will transform the way you think and feel about your body and health.


 I find it very rewarding working with clients over 40 because  of the empowering effect exercise has on their quality of life and activities of daily living.
