ABOUT VICTORY STRENGTH FITNESS
Victory Strength and Fitness was started by Bruce Salazar. This is his story.
I was dealing with a knee injury that had left me very inactive and overweight. I knew I had to change something. I was always fairly active, and I needed to regain what was lost. With the help of a friend who was a physical therapist I was able to recover and lose a substantial amount of weight. I felt so great with what I had accomplished that I knew I wanted to help people do the same.
I sought out the best instruction I possibly could. After getting certified as Personal Trainer by American College of sports Medicine, I realized I needed much more instruction if I was going to be able to help people. By chance I met a kettle bell instructor. This totally changed everything I knew about health and fitness. I sought out the best instruction I could and ended up getting coached by non other than the innovator of modern Kettle Bell movement and world renowned strength and fitness coach, Pavel Tsatsouline. I went on to become a StrongFirst Level 2 Kettle Bell Instructor and was coached by some other sought after coaches like Dr. Michael Hartle, Dave Whitley and others. Recently, I was selected from thousands to become one of the first Americans Certified to become a coach for THE AMAZING 12, a world class body transformation program that has changed the lives of hundreds all throughout Ireland, the UK, and Europe.
I want to use my experience and knowledge to help others accomplish incredible things. I have been blessed to have helped people lose over a hundred pounds, win college scholarships, gain strength they never knew they had, and many other things that they never thought were possible. If you are reading this then you are probably looking to accomplish something. Let me tell you. You can do it! I will help. Contact me today and let’s make your goals your reality!
WHAT CLIENT'S SAY
Ann R. – Louisville, KY
Once I turned 50 I started to lose muscle and my weight had dropped into an unhealthy range. After training with Bruce for 3 months I felt stronger than I ever had! Bruce developed a program specific to me which incorporated nutrition and weight training to help me meet my goals.
Allison – Louisville, KY
I was a single mother of 3 year old twins when I started training with Bruce. As a result of my personal training with Bruce I am three sizes smaller; I am in less pain; I am more flexible; I have more energy; and most importantly I am able to be a better mother to my children. Bruce helped me regain my life and I thank him.

As a chiropractor, I deal with injuries of all kinds, some from poor exercise technique. I can say with confidence that Bruce’s methods for training are not only safe but injury preventative. I can also say with confidence that they are very effective because I have been training with Bruce myself, and I have lost 10 lbs, gained more strength than I thought possible at my age, and I can keep up with my children much better. I highly recommend training with Bruce for effective weight loss and strength gaining!
John S. (72) Greenwood, IN
I want to express again my amazement at the results that I’ve experienced in the short time we’ve been working. He has been very patient and brought me along slowly to a point where I’m doing things that I’ve not done in 25 years. With little or no pain! His technique and personality have certainly helped me to undertake something as outside the box for someone my age. I thank Bruce for his attention to me. It’s very pleasing to have someone caring about my physical as well as my spiritual needs.
Shannon C. (29) Greenwood, IN
As a mother of two and a full time nurse in a correctional facility, I knew I needed more strength and stamina. Due to other issues and a hectic schedule, I had gained quite a bit of weight that I was never able to take off after my second child was born. I signed up with Bruce and in two months time I have lost 15 lbs, 2 sizes, and I am stronger than I have ever been! I highly recommend Bruce to anyone who is serious about reaching their weight loss goals!
Becky B. Greenwood, IN
My son, Brandon (19yrs), has Autism. When he expressed a desire to build strength, we wanted to make sure he learned to do the exercises in a safe, healthy manner. For Brandon, the autism impacts his fine and gross motor skills. As a result, his flexibility and coordination both needed work. New experiences are anxiety provoking for Brandon, so the idea of working with a personal trainer was scary for him at first, but Bruce put his fears to rest in no time. Brandon clearly enjoyed his time with Bruce and benefitted not only from the education and suggestions provided that increased his strength and flexibility.
Jamie M. (39) Greenwood, IN
I have been working with Bruce 2 years now. I have lost 20 pounds, gained significantly more muscle and strength, and feel much healthier. His workouts are exactly what I needed. They are simple (but challenging), effective, take minimal time, and beneficial for both strength and cardio. Bruce is the ideal trainer, personable and encouraging, yet motivates and challenges you to give 100% effort exceed your own expectations.
Julie S. (55) Greenwood, IN
I’ve been working out with Bruce for 5 months, and it has made a big difference in both my appearance and the way I feel. I’ve lost close to 20 lbs, and so far, I’ve been able to maintain the weight loss. My strength and mobility are both noticeably improved. Bruce customizes his training to the client, teaches the correct form, and is continually varying and increasing the intensity of the workouts. I would (and have) recommend Bruce as a trainer!
Karen H. Greenwood, IN
A friend of mine encouraged me to take the Kettle Bell class at the Gathering Place taught by Bruce Salazar. I took the class and liked the workout that I got with the kettlebells. I decided to start working with Bruce on an individual basis as I tend not to follow through with exercising on my own. After several months I found that I had lost weight, weight that I didn’t think I could ever lose as I didn’t really need to lose much and I had gained strength.
