Angelo dela Cruz - Los Altos, CAGood day!  My name is Angelo.

I’ve always been fascinated by the study of life.  After getting glimpses of what so many inquiring minds have discovered about how our cells behave through billions of simultaneous interactions of our own chemicals, electricity, biomechanics, thoughts & emotions, I truly have come to appreciate what a miracle each one of us is.

What a miracle each moment is.  What’s the probability that you’ve been born . . . on Earth . . . AND reading this right now?!  Unimaginably astronomical.

Through this appreciation, I’ve decided that I owed it to myself and my family to live & enjoy the best life that I could.  As I continue to explore, the main dependent factor that I continuously find all enjoyment of life to rest upon is the quality of my health.

My epiphany: “Without my health, nothing can be enjoyed to its fullest.”

Delving a bit deeper during the past 15 years, I’ve studied with doctors, physical therapists, clinical nutritionists, physical trainers, bodyworkers, and top innovators in the field of health & wellness.  The modalities that I find to be the most effective are those that work to eliminate things that degrade health AND allow the natural environment of our bodies and mind to operate as efficiently as possible.

My work aims to do exactly that and if you’ve been looking for the same, I’d be happy to share the information that may help you deal with less pain & sickness and live a more vibrant, productive life.

I wish us all an exciting journey! . . .


Occasionally I teach advanced massage & bodywork courses and anatomy classes. I also lead a fun, natural movement class called VitaMoves that’s designed to increase suppleness and promote structural balance & integrity of the body.

I like to have fun by Olympic Weightlifting, breakdancing, parkour & free-running, snowboarding, creating electronic music, digital art photography/ videography, & learning about quantum physics.

Feel free to check out the video below I submitted to enter the American Ninja Warrior contest in the summer of 2010.  My competition run is here.  (Ugh.  That darn “Warped Wall”!)

The 2011 American Ninja Warrior submission video – May 16 & 17 in Venice Beach, CA.  Here’s the video I submitted:

    Can I just say what a comfort to uncover an individual
    who genuinely understands what they’re talking about on the net. You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people must read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you aren’t more popular given that you
    certainly possess the gift.

      Thank you for your inspiring comment, Maple. You and others motivate me to bring more awareness to these ideas and my plans are to continue doing that! . . .

      Thanks for reaching out, Shelley! I’m glad that you’ve been enjoying the VitaMoves videos. I’ve reached a reflective point and have been exploring a lot of ideas to make them better. I hope to include more videos that go beyond mobility. I appreciate your patience as I prepare to produce more soon. . .

    Angelo, A friend did me a great favour by sending me a link yesterday to your primal con video via marks’ daily apple. Today my wife, son and I were all attempting to do your great exercises. You are truly inspiring to watch and you are such a clear and thoughtful teacher. A lot more people should learn about you and see you in action!

    Thanks so much and please keep me in the loop if you release any new videos. Mind you we will be kept occupied for quite some time trying to assimilate your 10 exercises to the best of our abilities. Thanks for all you are doing.

    Sincerely, David Brown

    Good Job Buddy! Truly inspirational. I hope to see you in Venice Beach at ANW 6. I don’t think I will be attempting Denver again though if I don’t get a call to Venice. It was very hard to breath towards the end of the Denver course…like being on the moon!
