Diana shares her story of turning to fitness in the hard times and how it’s helped her step out of her comfort zone with her OCD. She has seen the difference fitness has made in her life and the lives of the high school students she teaches. She is the author of the book YES, YOU CAN where she shares her battles with OCD and how she was ultimately able to shift her perspective to view her disorder as a superpower and a blessing rather than a curse.
Her signature phrase: YES, YOU CAN, shouted with enthusiasm in her fitness classes has grown to be a motivational saying that is meant to help others in achieving greatness and unlocking their utmost potential, no matter what barriers their anxiety and OCD may inflict on them.
