I invite you to challenge yourself... to be fit and stay
fit - everything in moderation

               ABOUT ME 


Hi! I am Bruno Volpacchio - as an athletic coach for over 25 years, I have inspired hundreds of kids and adults in group and team settings.


I graduated from Columbia University, Teachers College with a goal of being the best I could be – to teach the student both the subject at hand and life’s lessons.


As a running coach, my students were very often successful in league competition and championships.  I instill life's values and the fundamentals of becoming a successful runner so they can reach their ultimate goals.


I believe the connection between teacher and student is one of the strongest connections that exist, as they spend a lot of time together and thus the teacher has the power to transform the student.  And as a teacher, I always make sure to adjust to the dynamics of each individual student to help them achieve their goals – in sports and in life.


Seasoned, highly experienced coach for multiple sports disciplines including and not limited to:

ice hockey, tennis, cross-country, track & field
