Diane Banderas
MS, CSCS, PRT, motivational speaker

Diane is a youth strength and conditioning coach in Omaha, Nebraska. 

Her passion is working with kids to not only increase their performance, but increase their confidence in themselves as well. One of her favorite parts of being a coach is seeing an athlete develop overtime into who they were meant to be. All it takes is for someone to believe in them and guide them along the path. She works with both males and females, however, Diane has a true spot in her heart for young female athletes. In our world today there are so many images of what it means to be female thrown at these kids. Her goal is to empower, equip, and encourage girls to be confident in who they are. Even more so, to teach them that life is more about their heart and grit than it is about physical appearance. 


Throughout her entire life she has tried to never follow the crowd because that is “what everyone else is doing” Diane has a stick to her guns and do what she knows is right in her gut. She was never the best athlete or the most popular kid in school, but that didn’t matter! Her values and faith, and goals kept her on the path to today. She tries to do what others won’t, to get what others don’t have. Working harder for everything earned? YES! But she wouldn’t want it any other way. She went from being cut from her first volleyball tryout, to playing in college, not because she was magically better, but because working hard and perseverance. Diane went to the gym more than anyone else and did everything in the power to make sure that when she looked in the mirror, She was proud of the person staring back at me.
