Misty Diaz is an adaptive athlete who refused to let her Spina Bifida define her. Misty is a true example of how anything is possible when you have drive and determination. A fitness enthusiast and a motivational speaker, Misty strives for excellence in everything she does and is constantly inspiring others with her condition.
Misty’s incredible story began when, after being born prematurely, she underwent several operations when she was just three days old. Growing up with Myelomeningocele, the most severe form of Spina Bifida, life could be a struggle for Misty but she continued to fight and eventually, she took the initiative to get up and walk. She was weak and had to work hard to build her strength by walking a little further every day. With her determination and resilience, Misty was soon walking 5k, then in 2012 surprised everyone when she ran 5k for charity.
Misty’s story has reached thousands of people the world over and she is able to share her incredible workout routines, training and her mentoring work through her social media accounts. Misty has an impressive reach with over 10k followers who clearly admire her as much as we do here at PROMiXX.
