Crystal Miranda | Founder of The Healthy Mind Movement and Mental Health Professional
The Healthy Mind Movement is a concept born from the idea that everyone deserves the knowledge to obtain a “healthy mind”. Mental health is one of the most stigmatized and neglected areas of public health, despite its widespread prevalence. Statistically, 1 in 5 adults in America experience a mental illness in any given year. But we ALL have mental health. Mental health struggles DO NOT discriminate, and we are all affected at some point – directly or indirectly. Our local community is no exception. Miami-Dade County is home to the largest percentage of people with Serious Mental Illnesses of any urban community in the United States. Roughly 9.1% of the population (more than 210,000) individuals experience a mental health condition, yet fewer than 13% of these individuals receive care.

Vicky Justiz | Coach, Youtuber, & Founder of Daily Thrive App
We have three main goals we want to achieve with Daily Thrive. The first goal is to get people MOVING & get people active. We do this by making workouts diverse and fun, by having a lot of beginner friendly workouts, and making the app super simple to navigate. We constantly add new workouts and challenges to keep people excited! Our second goal, is to eliminate barriers to fitness. With workout schedules and programs, we give people structure so they do not have to always decide what to do and when. Most workouts are done anywhere and anytime with no or minimal equipment. There are also different lengths of workouts so they can fit into any schedule. Our third goal, is to help women feel welcome and SUPPORTED. This is a place where you are welcome no matter your size, shape, or ability. The main trainer (ME!) always does the workout with them from beginning to end, being supportive and motivating the whole way. I do not edit out my struggles, because this is human. Read more>>
