Rypt Gym in Midtown Miami

RYPT Gym has been serving the Miami community since 2016 and now partnered with Midtown Body. Our range of services are focused on body composition. Whether your goal is to gain muscle, lose fat or maintain a healthy physique, we are equipped with a full line of equipment and experienced personal trainers. RYPT gym and Midtown Body are owned and supervised by renowned surgeon Jose I. Almeida, MD and world champion bodybuilder Yaxeni Oriquen. Our members can now take advantage of additional medical services - at our office in Brickell -such as blood work, DEXA scan, non-invasive body sculpting, and hormone replacement therapy to get your body energized.



In addition to an extensive selection of machines and free weights, we also have a team of seasoned personal trainers.

Resistance exercise is critical. Muscles will respond to load or force regardless of your age. Which muscles should you exercise? That depends on what you are prioritizing. For longevity and fall risk, you want to be exercising your legs, thighs, calf, and glutes. 


We encourage all clients to begin their journey with a DEXA scan. The DEXA Scan gives the most precise information about body fat (including visceral fat), muscle, and bone density. A DEXA body composition scan gives us baseline numbers, and is the most sensitive tool available to measure progress.

Integrative Nutrition Health Coach

Develop new healthy habits, gain deeper sleep, have a healthy gut, more energy, and life enthusiasm by working one-on-one with our gut health consultant!

If we do not focus on sound nutrition we cannot prioritize our muscle strength and muscle mass; the risks of muscle loss are much harder to overcome as we age.

Personal Training

Each of our certified personal trainers has more than 20 years of experience working with clients of all levels, from people who are just starting out to competitive bodybuilders.

Prioritizing muscle mass and muscle strength are critically important to optimizing our health and longevity. It is also true that our muscle mass, and strength decline with age; which can have dramatic negative effects on our health.

Jose I. Almeida, MD  Owner

I believe that sound balance nutrition has always been a cornerstone of good health maintenance, however, nowadays there’s a growing importance in the balance of the three macronutrients: protein, carbohydrates, and fats. There has been growing literature surrounding the concept of inflammation, and strategies to mitigate inflammation such as antioxidants and nutraceuticals. The aforementioned principles have turned my focus to wellness. Traditional medicine has focused on treating the sick, now I beleive the approach should encompass an emphasis on keeping us well.
