Bruce Cohn has been helping adults and kids to reach their fitness goals for over 30 years. With his background as a personal trainer, strength and conditioning coach and physical educator, Bruce is a master at designing customized programs for individuals and groups.
After offering personal training programs in both community fitness center and private health club settings, he began his own personal training business in 1995. “Your Gym Teacher” offered training and nutrition services to the general fitness population in a private studio setting. In 1999 Bruce established FIT-TO-GO Total Conditioning to provide high quality conditioning programs for student-athletes and adults seeking to improve performance and overall fitness.
Bruce remained teaching physical education in the Greater Boston area and was named the Strength & Conditioning Coach at the Middlesex School in Concord, MA. His training business continued to grow and Bruce began writing the “Getting Fit” column which ran in the Boston Globe for 2 years. As a nationally Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and Certified Nutrition Specialist, Bruce offered simple and effective advice and techniques for exercise, nutrition and injury prevention.
Bruce continued to provide personal training, fitness camps and consulting services in the Boston area until his retirement from teaching in 2013. During his last 5 years at Needham High School Bruce developed “Senior To Senior”, a nationally recognized intergenerational fitness program to foster connections between teens and older adults through fitness training.
Since relocating to the Merrimack Valley, Bruce has continued to train private clients while consulting with Atria Merrimack Place in Newburyport on how to incorporate functional training into their fitness programs. His work there was featured in the fall 2016 issue of Newburyport magazine.
Bruce continues his work with young athletes both in his private training business and as an Assistant Coach with the Boys Indoor Track team at Pentucket Regional High School. He was responsible for coaching the shot put and designed strength and conditioning programs for the team. While he no longer actively coaches the team, Bruce remains in contact with his former athletes helping them transition their workouts as they become working adults.
Based on his years of training and coaching clients from every stage of life Bruce has developed a simple training philosophy. Everything you do, whether sedentary or active, affects your body, mind and spirit. Your body adapts in either positive ways – improved mobility, strength and tone – or negative ways – injury, pain and weakness. Our training programs work to enhance performance and repair imbalances. Bruce Cohn Fitness provides solutions that improve the way you move in the real world.
