A former pro baseball player who has been training and coaching speakers, amateur and professional athletes, celebrities and ordinary people since 2000, Dio Miranda teaches how to use simple daily strategies to live a life of exceptional health and vitality.
A native of Carolina, Puerto Rico, Dio was recruited by University of Memphis Lambuth in Jackson, Tennessee to play college baseball, then went on to play professional baseball in the Independent League and Winter League in Puerto Rico so he was quite familiar with the training necessary for athletes at a high level. While in college, Dio had the great experience of teaching disabled students as part of his degree program. He graduated college in his second language with B.S. degrees in both Physical Education and Special Education. Dio found his ultimate dream somewhere between these two extreme levels of functioning as he was more and more intrigued by what helps the ordinary person achieve incredible health.
Dio also graduated from the Florida College of Natural Health as a Certified Massage Therapist. Afterwards, he continued practicing as a strength coach in the Miami area and then further combined his interest in the spiritual and emotional aspects of the mind and body, and how they affect physical performance by attending the prestigious CHEK Institute where he studied (C)orrective (H)olistic (E)xercise (K)inesiology.
