John Perry


Owner Signature Fitness (est. 1999)
Certified physical therapy aid
IFPA certified personal training
Licensed NY state coach in athletics

An athlete since a young age, John played in many sports from age 8 to 26. He has also coached a variety of youth and high school sports for several years.

John got his start as a certified trainer, working out of LA Fitness in Bocas Raton, FL in early 1999. After returning to his hometown of Kingston, NY, he realized that there was a demand for personal training in a private setting where clients could work one-on-one with knowledgeable and professional trainers. And Signature Fitness was established.

John has experience training people of all ages, from 8 to 80+, at all fitness levels and with all type of impairments and disabilities.  He has worked with and has many local referrals from child therapist, doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, and current and past clients, too.

Signature Fitness Review:
I have used John Perry as a personal trainer for many years and have also referred many clients to him from my psychotherapy practice. John creates a safe and warm environment, personalizing training sessions based on the needs of the individual. There is ample medical evidence that weekly training sessions that combine cardio with weight training can boost the immune system, enhance mood and memory and help prevent the numerous physical issues that stress and/or aging can bring. John has worked with numerous adolescent boys from my practice, many of whom struggled with neurological issues such as Asperger’s Syndrome. In each case his work helped these boys with confidence, social skill development and cognitive enhancement, grounding them in their own bodies as he helped them better articulate themselves both physically and verbally. He intuitively understood their individual needs and addressed these with a mixture of discipline and humor. John and his gym are a great boon to the area.
