Tony Bruno


My Philosophy:
on Exercise- "It is not what you do, it is how you do it."
on Nutrition/weight loss- "You either have too much of something or too little, the hard part is to find the balance for your unique signature."
on Education- "An hour across the table from a wise man is worth a year of reading books."

    I have had a shoulder/back problem for at least five years now. Whenever I exercised, stood up straight for a while or was concentrating on work, I had a radiating pain that made everything difficult. I went to three orthopedic specialists, two physical therapists and two chiropractors. Every doctor said that they could fix the problem and they tried everything short of surgery with absolutely no result. I was about to get surgery for this problem until a friend recommended Tony. I was very skeptical but thought that I had nothing to lose so I gave it a shot. I have no idea how he does it, but I have absolutely NO PAIN now! I can't believe I didn't know about Tony until now. I plan on going back to him for my compartment syndrome in my legs that he says he can fix, I 100% believe he can. I was extremely skeptical about what his method and doubted if it would work but I am so shocked and thrilled that I have no pain anymore! Thank you Tony and I highly recommend him to anyone who is sick of their pain and can't find relief by going to physical therapists, chiropractors and orthopedic surgeons.

    I had the great fortune meet Tony Bruno several years ago, during an extremely low point in my life.

    Despite my best efforts to avoid prescription drugs, conventional medical treatment and surgery throughout my life, the excruciating back pain from an injury had gotten the best of me. A highly-regarded orthopedic surgeon assured me that my condition was so far gone that surgery was my only hope... and I was ready to do anything to relieve the pain.

    Fortunately, a business associate of mine… a two-time U.S. Olympian in Judo and long-time “raving fan” of Tony Bruno, insisted that I set an appointment. What a blessing! I practically crawled up the handicapped ramp to meet with him… and 60 minutes later, walked out nearly PAIN-FREE!!!

    Several treatments later, I felt stronger, more energetic than ever… and completely free of pain.

    Mr. Bruno, truth-be-told, knows more about nutrition, exercise and human anatomy than anyone I’ve ever met. He’s a virtual human encyclopedia of everything it takes to achieve optimal health and well-being.

    I’ll be lifelong advocate of this great man… and forever grateful to the gentleman who referred me!

    Tony's expertise and professionalism is second to none. I started seeing Tony after I injured my shoulder bench pressing two years ago. Like most people I really had no clue how to weight train. I would walk into the weight room and would train the muscles I saw in the mirror. I later paid for this , but thankfully I was introduced to Tony by my sister, who he had been working on for a few months. She saw Tony when she started having back and knee pain from volleyball. After having a first hand look at how much he helped her I decided to meet with him and give him a try. He started off by helping to improve the muscle imbalances in my body. His MAT sessions help to alleviate my pain and allowed me to get back in the gym in no time. Lastly his biosignature dieting practices have helped me to lower body fat, pack on lean muscle, and remain healthy and energized throughout the day. Without Tony I would not have been able to fully rehabilitate my injuries nor achieve my goal of playing hockey for DePaul University. Tony has provided me with the tools to stay strong, quick, and overall healthy!

    I am currently a professional baseball player with the Kansas City Royals organization. I began working with Tony when I was a senior in high school. I Came to Tony as an out of shape, unathletic, uncoordinated, and uneducated person who had a dream of playing sports in college. Tony not only helped me reach my goal but far exceeded it. Throughout my last 6 years working with Tony, we have developed me into a professional athlete. As a pitcher I have grown my velocity from throwing 85 mph to currently topping out at 97 mph, and I contribute most of that to what Tony has shown me. He has also educated me in every way to understand the process and exactly what is happening with my body and how we are going to evolve it. Tony has worked on and exceeded my expectations in every area of strength and conditioning with me; from power, to strength, endurance, speed, hypertrophy, and even fat loss. Tony also, has aided me in my dieting and supplementation, and has taught me a lot about that field also. Finally, he also helps with my aches, pains, and injuries with his MAT techniques. He has made sure that there are no weak spots or "leaks" in my body, which can cause an injury or prevent me from becoming the best athlete that I can be. I HIGHLY recommend Tony Bruno, he is fun, easy to work with, and truly knows his stuff. The best part is, he passes on his knowledge to you, so you become educated with what he is doing. I have seen tremendous results, and I will continue to work with Tony even past the day I throw my last pitch.
