THE TRAINERS

Armando Alarcon

OWNER & TRAINER

 

"A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.”

Benjamin Franklin

 

Armando is a certified fitness trainer with years of experience. But what makes him truly stand out is his “care factor” and his ability to connect with people. He has traveled over 50 countries in almost every continent of the world. At each destination, he has explored diverse disciplines of training to complement his own practice.

 

“My passion is to teach people that with a strong body comes a strong mind. The balance becomes a perfection of movement.

 

Whether it be a family juggling hectic events, demanding work deadlines, or preparing for a role as a superhero, he is committed to bringing out the very best in each individual.

He has designed exercises specific for women focusing on gaining long and lean muscles that create beautiful lines while avoiding bulk. These movements elongate and engage the entire body…not just specific areas. Katy Perry’s performances during her Prismatic World Tour was one of the most physically demanding shows a performer could execute. Armando’s specific training exercises became instrumental in catapulting Katy into her most optimum physical form. The training allowed her to have the stamina and explosive energy needed to complete 151 shows in 52 countries.
