Eric Cruz - Kinesiologist, Functional Nutritionist
“While exercise or nutrition can be beneficial in different aspects, it is the two combined that truly allows the client to obtain optimal results. Every individual is unique in genetic build and current lifestyle. Therefore each individual responds differently and may require different changes in behavior to reach their respective goals. No mode of exercise is perfect for everyone just as no single diet is perfect for everyone. The time of one size fits all in nutrition and fitness is gone. We must analyze people inside and out to provide truly optimal recommendations and results.”
Mission and Practice
Eric’s nutrition practice is progressive with a holistic and functional nutrition approach. He runs functional lab work to obtain a clear picture as to what the client is dealing with on the inside, not just symptoms on the outside. By identifying healing opportunities in various areas in the body, he gets to the root cause of many health complaints such as weight regulation, hormone imbalances, lack of energy, digestive complaints, autoimmune conditions, and sleep problems. His target populations are digestive disorders, degenerative diseases (MS, RA, Fibromyalgia), and weight loss.
In his fitness practice, Eric works with a wide variety of populations ranging from 8 year old kids to seniors. He focuses on empowering others and helping them achieve results with functional movement at the center. By identifying movement dysfunction, lifestyle demands and goals of the client, Eric helps them reach their goals safely and efficiently through exercise physiology, corrective and functional exercise, and coaching. Because of this approach and his broad expertise, Eric tends to work with many disabled populations. His current list of clients includes those with: Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Amputees Lyme Disease, Cancer, Brain/Spinal Cord Injury, and Stroke. His target populations are special populations (such as those above), pain relief, and chronic illness.
