Everything You've Been Told About Diet & Exercise Won't Work If You're Missing This...
Discover the simple system to easily help you slim down, decrease stress, and increase your energy in 28 days or less.
Renew your body.
Do you want to wake up each morning feeling energized without having to rely on caffeine? Do you want to easily slip into your clothes as you get ready for your day? Do you want to arrive to work peacefully regardless of the traffic conditions? Do you want to be able to focus and have mental clarity as you make decisions? Do you want to still be energized and excited to play with your kids or to spend time with your loved ones at the end of each day? Do you want to have clarity of and be in control of your mental and physical health and fitness?
You've been told that the solution is to do more of the same: Exercise Harder and Eat Less, More Exercise, Less Food, Higher Intensity Exercise, Stricter Dieting—and yet that simply isn't true!
Now I'm here to tell you that more intense exercise and less food is actually making your problems worse. Huh? Yes, it's true. For you, the formula of more exercise and less food is making it harder to get the results you are after.
Tell me if this sounds familiar to you?
You realize you are frustrated with your health, your body, or your weight. Everything you seem to try works for a little bit then as if the universe is conspiring against you, "life happens" and you find yourself back to where you started or worse. You now find yourself fighting with your spouse, yelling at your kids, hating the process of getting dressed, feeling too tired to enjoy life, and making passive aggressive comments to your coworkers. You worked so hard and sacrificed so many other things and then "stuff" suddenly happened and in what seems like an instant all your progress not only stopped but started reversing and because it took so much energy and sacrifice to get you that progress in the first place (that you no longer have), you just quit trying and feel even more frustrated, miserable and hopeless.
Stress builds up, your energy levels plummet so you seek some or more caffeine, sugar and fast food just to get through the day. You can't focus as well at work, at home and in life so your decisions are haphazard, accidental or regretful. Suddenly you are aware again of your current state of affairs, you panic and so you jump on to the next highly intense solution promising you the deliverance of your desperation because you know you have to do something. After all, this is your health, your fitness, your mental sanity, your life. You refuse to buy the next size up pair of pants, you know you don't want this to become a medical illness like heart problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, or even cancer. You look up to the sky and you promise, no, you swear that this time you will follow the program even if its exhausting, leaves you sore and in pain or starves you. But again, you don't finish it or after it ends you revert back to your old way of life and your previous state of affairs and your pants won't close again. That pattern continues and you resume the dance of two steps of progress, one step falling off the band wagon, and three steps in reverse of your goal, your hopes, your health and your life. This only makes things worse because now you also feel guilt and you judge yourself harshly asking, "Why me? Why can't I just get there already? Why when others do it so easily, can't I get results and keep them?"
Perhaps you've been so frustrated that you've just said, "Am I the only one that can't figure this out? When will I catch a break? Why is this so hard? What am I missing?"
Can you relate?
I get it.
I have worked with hundreds of frustrated, stress-out clients who have had a similar experience. I see this daily and to be honest this doesn't just happen with health but in all avenues of life. Now, before I tell you about the system that changes all this and revolutionizes results, let me tell you about who I am and why you should even listen to me.
My name is Armando Cruz and I am a Lifestyle Physical Therapist, Transformation Coach, Speaker, Best Selling Author and the Creator of the Cleanse and Renewal Program which is the system to cleanse, renew, restore and reset your body weight, mindset, health and fitness. I am also the creator of the Cruz Country Family Fitness Experience and the creator of the R.I.C.H. Man Experience and for the past 15 years, my mission has been and continues to be to transform individuals and families lives so that they can live respected, inspired, connected, happy, and healthy.
I have my Masters of Science in Physical Therapy and my Bachelors of Science in Athletic Training. I am a licensed physical therapist and athletic trainer and a certified Strength and Conditioning Coach through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. I am also a BodyMAP and MindMAP Coach as well as hold many other certifications. I've been featured in the Wall Street Journal, FIU magazine, appeared on CBS, UPN, Yahoo TV and various podcasts and radio shows.
Now, all this shows you my professional expertise, but let me share a humbling personal experience that made it my mission to create the Cleanse & Renewal Program 3.0
About 3 years ago I reached the lowest point in my life. I was depressed, sleeping 10+ hours a day, I felt helpless and useless. Stress was building up from my business and finances which were in turn affecting my marriage, my kids and my health. The guilt that I was not showing up energetically, purposefully and powerfully for my wife and my kids dug me into a deeper hole of self doubt, stress and illness. My life was downward spiraling. I was getting sick every month. I started having heart palpitations and I was only 33 years old. I didn't have the energy or desire to exercise and oftentimes to even get out of bed in the morning. It was one of the hardest times in my life in terms of my mental state and health. So I understand and get what it feels like to be helpless, frustrated and hopeless.
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way when you understand how this all works as I will explain in a little bit. For me to get out of this downward health spiral, I invested over $10,000 and flew half way around the world to Thailand to work with my coach and mentor to gain a clear vision and precise plan to bring me out of my darkness and into the light. After implementing that plan, I was able to regain my inspired mindset, my optimal health, my ultra-fitness, my God-given purpose and begin living out my impactful mission.
The really good news is that living out my mission led me to create the precise plan for you and your mission and you don't have to spend $10,000 or fly half-way around the world to get it. Before I share this precise plan, I'm going to show you a perfect example of someone who benefited from the philosophy behind the Cleanse and Renewal 3.0 Program.
Why No Exercise And No Diet Was The Best Thing Amy Did...
Before I tell you the secret behind Amy's success, I want you to remember this one statement, "The Thing Is Not The Thing!" I know it may not make sense right now but it will become clear after I share Amy's Renewal story.
Amy was in her mid 40's when she came to see me. She was single, had a stressful job, and was caring for her ailing mother. She had no energy and felt completely drained. She had been trying to lose weight for years. She wanted to feel better about herself.
Can you relate?
Amy had tried different diets and exercise plans but had no luck. So, she wanted to join one of our group training programs because she had heard great things about it. The crazy thing is that...
I said no!!!
That may sound weird, but let me explain why I said "No, not yet" to her.
After assessing her I realized that she was under an incredible amount of internal and external stress. Her mom was really sick, she continuously felt drained and run down and had no idea what to do.
I explained to her that pushing harder in her diet and exercise was probably the worst thing she could do which surprised her. Everywhere she had gone before she had been told to to eat less and train harder.
I challenged her to do 3 things daily over the next 2 weeks and then come back to report the results. Her 3 challenges were to get to bed by 10:30pm, walk outside in the sun for at least 10 minutes a day, and say a minimum of 5 things she was grateful for in the morning and before bed.
After 2 weeks she came back a renewed woman.
Amy reported significantly more energy, and she felt better and happier than she had in years, and she even lost 6 lbs!
I share this example with you to illustrate to you what I mean by the thing is often not the thing.
You must give yourself space to heal and to listen. Said differently "Less doing, more being." (Take note as this is a huge secret to success: "Less doing, more being". That's right, go ahead and write it down, post it where you can see it everyday.
You must take small actions steps and do them daily to create habits.
You must feed your mind and body nourishing food to maximize and energize you.
You must move. Movement is medicine.
And finally, you must create an environment and team that supports you.
Over the past 14 years, I’ve come across way too many people stuck in this never ending cycle of weight gain, low energy, low vitality, addicted to caffeine and sugar just to get by. I’ve seen them overwhelmed with their health and stressed out about what to do about it. The only advice seems to be to eat less and train harder.
If you are tired of the "eat less and train harder" philosophy and realize that the thing is not the thing let me invite you to continue reading.
How To Decrease Stress, Eliminate Unwanted Fat, And Increase Your Energy & Vitality So You Can Live The Life You Deserve!
Here are the 2 reasons I developed the Cleanse & Renewal 3.0 Challenge:
- Most programs on the market are actually doing more harm than good. Not on purpose but most trainers think it is a simple calories in versus calories out. They only know and share part of the formula for health.
- I want to help more people live more vibrant and healthier lives. Before this, I could only serve people locally from my Miami studio. With this program it doesn't matter where you live. You can participate and join our supportive family.
The Cleanse and Renewal 3.0 Challenge is founded on our 4 Pillar Approach. Each of these pillars helps to support your health, energy, and vitality. Together, the 4 pillars will grow the joy and happiness in your life leading to freedom. Freedom to be you. Freedom to enjoy your kids, your environment, your body and your life.
This is how you create space for your mind and body to be aligned with your purpose. This is "Me Time".
Movement is healing and natural medicine for your body and mind. It is used to build you up not tear you down.
You don't have to be a prisoner to food or feel deprived of it. Food is meant to excite, energize, and liberate you.
There will be tough times and your support will be there to uplift you and celebrate your success and wins.
This program is not for everyone.
In fact, it was designed for very a specific person.
This is NOT for you if you...
- Want a quick fix or magic pill.
- Are sleeping less than 5 hours and are unwilling to get more sleep.
- Have severe hormonal imbalances or severe autoimmune disorders.
This IS for you if you...
- Feel stuck with your health or weight.
- Want to regain control and confidence of your health.
- Want to increase your energy.
- Want to make a change because what you are currently doing is not working.
The Cleanse & Renewal program was such an amazing experience! Working with Armando through this program helped me grow in more ways than I had hoped. I didn’t just replace my poor eating habits with much better ones, I also learned to love me and to be compassionate with myself as I grow. It is a program that works on you physically, mentally, and emotionally. Thank you, Armando, for your guidance and encouragement throughout. This experience truly exceeded my expectations and I am a better person for it.
During the Cleanse & Renewal program, I experienced a life changing shift! With the support of the group and new awareness of the effects processed foods have on my system, I experienced how clean foods affect me not only physically, but emotionally and mentally. At first as I felt the toxins leaving my body, I experienced a bit of confusion and brain fog, so it was crucial to have support. Armando was always available by text or phone calls. By the end of the first week, I started to feel revitalized with more energy and mental clarity. Feeling such a contrast, and understanding how I truly have the power to change how I feel when I have the right information and support, learning through experience, truly gives me the motivation to continue these habits as a long term solution...and freedom from short term quick fixes that inundate the fitness industry. Thanks to Cruz Country for creating a balanced holistic program that leads to true freedom and confidence in my own choices!"
I took part in the Cleanse & Renewal program in July 2018. At the time I was experiencing a significant lack in energy on a daily basis. I found myself needing naps, "crashing after lunch, and just not feeling like myself. I had gained weight little by little and not feeling great ever. I had maintained exercise but not consistently, and I had no routine at the time.
When I spoke to Armando about all of these issues, I told him I needed some specific direction on diet and exactly what certain foods can do to me both negatively and positively. He recommended this program because of the detailed schedule on diet and incorporating daily movements and meditation. It really showed me how my intake of food affected EVERYTHING I did on daily basis. It gave me a different perspective on viewing the food I was eating as fuel for my body. Prior to this I had built a poor habit of over consumption and constantly thinking my body needed to eat. Good or bad I needed food, which was so far removed from the truth. I realized my body has plenty of fuel for the day with much less than I thought.
After completing the program I will be honest and say that I still struggle with some of the same issues and dedicating myself to proper nutrition but I have made much progress in realizing what I am putting into my body and focusing on healthier choices for the long run. I am focusing on the results of me feeling so much better rather than the instant gratification of how something tastes for 2 minutes.
I would absolutely recommend the program to anyone who needs some direction, education and accountability with these areas that the Cleanse and Renewal program provides.

We'll respond to schedule your FREE consultation and answer all your questions.
There are food guidelines to follow for optimal results, however, you have choices within these guidelines to best suit your needs while still getting great results.
There is some food prep required, however we give you strategies to minimize the time you spend on food prep. The program is intended to take away stress from your life not add stress.
This is not a strategy to get you to buy a bunch of shakes, bars and supplements. While there are supplements that you may benefit from taking while on the cleanse, they are totally optional and not required as this is a whole foods based cleanse.
The focus is on Food Freedom based on whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean meats, good fats, some grains, ultimately you have many choices to choose from.
While the focus of this program is to achieve Food Freedom through cleansing and renewing your mind and body, weight loss is usually a side effect of the program. The range of weight loss by individuals who complete the program range from 2lbs to 27lbs by the end of the 4-week program.
Minimum 43 min/day to max of 75 min/day plus one 45min weekly call.
* Meditation 3-4 min/day
* Movement 10-20min/day,
* Food prep 30-60min/day
* Calls 45min/week
We are very familiar with food allergies and can very easily adjust, accommodate and substitute for any food allergies that you may have including but not limited to eggs, dairy, nuts, grains, fish, chicken, etc.
Again, the cleanse is designed with many options so that you can choose the best options for you.
The way we define movement is based on whether it heals you, excites you, energizes you and leaves you feeling better than when you started. If you are already involved in an exercise program or regime we will help you determine whether to reduce or continue what you are already doing but either way we will encourage you to do the daily movement protocol which can last anywhere from 5-20min/day. We will guide you to help you come up with the best formula for you that heals you, excites you, energizes you and leaves you feeling better than when you started. Again our goal is to reduce stress in your life not increase it.
This is not a vegan program. At this time we cannot give you the support you would need on a vegan plan as that would require supplementation. If you do not eat meat but eat fish, eggs, chicken and/or another animal protein source then we can help you substitute where needed.
No, this is not a paleo diet, this is a cleanse and renewal that leaves you with food freedom not a diet to follow.
Neither. The meditation is based on creating a sacred or safe space for yourself so that you can get clarity, achieve a state of peace and calm to allow you to make more empowered decisions.
