ABOUT

 

ANDY LUACES, EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGIST C.S.C.S.

 
Born and raised in Miami with Cuban roots, the Miami native has been perfecting the art and science of Fitness and Sports Performance for 15+ years. 
 
Andy's inspiration and passion for helping others came from his brother, who was born with a neuromuscular condition similar to hand tremors. He wanted to help his brother limit the physical challenges of the condition, increase confidence and get more out of life. He used core stability exercises, balance training and calisthenics. This forged the foundation of Core Fitness Miami. 
 
In 2004 Andy earned his Personal Trainer Certification and started working for large membership gyms. He was quickly frustrated with the current training methods used by most trainers and gyms. He knew there was a better approach to helping others achieve their health and fitness goals. 
 
At age 22, while pursuing his Exercise Physiology degree at FIU, Andy quit his job and started Core Fitness Miami. He loaded up his car with fitness equipment and began to promote his services door to door. 
 
Andy graduated from FIU with a Bachelor's in Exercise Physiology in 2008. He worked with several Physical Therapy clinics while developing his approach and methodology to fitness and sports performance. 
 
By 2012 Andy opened his first gym in the Edgewater area. His expertise started to gain recognition from professional athletes. He began training NBA and NFL athletes as well as developing collegiate athletes for the NFL Combine. 
 
In 2014 Andy expanded Core Fitness Miami to what it is today. He partnered with some of the best medical practitioners in South Florida to create the most complete personalized training experience for both pro athletes and fitness enthusiasts. Core Fitness Miami is now a team that has the knowledge, experience and synergy to continue leading the fitness and sports performance industry for years to come.

OUR PARTNERS

FoxPT.com

At Fox Physical Therapy, rather than finding a temporary solution to your pain location, we will discover the underlying issue so that the real healing begins. To find the true cause of pain it requires a deeper understanding of the biomechanical chain of movement, regional interdependence, and a thorough evaluation process. At Fox Physical Therapy this is what we specialize in. Our board-certified Physical Therapists develop a plan of care that not only quickly reduces your pain levels but ensures that the pain does not come back in the future.

HealthFitChiro.com

At Health-Fit Chiropractic & Sports Recovery we treat all athletes of various levels from the weekend warrior to the professional athlete. If it’s a sport, we have treated an injury related to it. All of our patients go through a series of functional examinations in conjunction with the chiropractic and sports recovery exam to determine the diagnosis and underlying cause of the injury. In addition, our athletes are also assessed and/or consulted on possible sport-related causes to their injury. Every sport has its physical demands and common injuries. Part of complete care for an athlete is addressing the biomechanical insults of the sport as well as the body.
