Sweat PT Director Ray Cruz

Ray Cruz - Sweat PT Director


Hi Everyone, My name Ray Cruz! I am the Head Trainer, as well as the SweatPT Manager at our Northside location. My passion is to help people change their lives in the simplest and most realistic way as possible. I believe everyone deserves the right to good health and to be happy with themselves, inside and out. Getting fit does not have to be difficult, but often times it is. Why is that? With so much conflicting and contradictory information out there it can be very frustrating and confusing to figure out what to do. Guess what, you’re not alone.
