Armando Cruz-

Armando Cruz is a Lifestyle Physical Therapist and Body Transformation Coach. Armando was born and raised in Miami, FL. He attended Florida International University (FIU) and has a bachelors degree in Exercise and Sports Science with a focus on Athletic Training. He pursued his education further at FIU and received a masters in physical therapy with a focus on orthopedic overuse injuries.

Since 2001 Armando had been helping to train and condition collegiate and high school athletes. During that time he realized that while he loved training athletes he now wanted to focus on sharing the gift of health and fitness with families. In 2005 Armando created Cruz Country Fitness & Physical Therapy to help achieve his mission of helping families live happier and healthier lives through exercise, nutrition, education, and mindset.

The primary focus was to help those people that were injured or had a pre-existing condition and get them in the best shape possible. Because of Armando’s vision to help as many people as possible, in 2009 he started what is known as the Miami Fit Body Boot Camp to capitalize on the energy and power of groups. He has developed a boot camp training system that empowers hundreds of people to live healthier lives.

Armando Cruz has established himself as a leader in both the physical therapy industry and the fitness industry. He has established himself as the trainer to the trainers. He continually teaches continuing education credits as a consultant for Equinox gyms in Miami. He has spoken at fitness business seminars to help trainers run their business more effectively and provide their clients with quality service. He has also spoken at physical therapy seminars to help private practice owners grow their business with excellent service that focuses on faster results and bonding with their patients.

Armando Cruz is serious about being an example through his actions. He has adopted a holistic lifestyle approach that he shares with his family, friends, clients, and when he speaks at seminars. Armando believes that your actions do speak louder than words and embraces that daily. Armando along with his wife Christian have two beautiful children Mandy and Amelie. Their kids love spinach and exercise daily.
