Dana is the best when it comes to mobility and movement patterns. She programs mobility work based on the demands of the sport, position, and individual athlete needs. I highly recommend Dana for group or individual work with athletes.
Hi, I’m Dana Santas
AKA THE MOBILITY MAKER
Over the past twenty years working exclusively in professional sports as a mobility, breathing and mind-body coach to 45+ pro teams and serving nearly a decade as a health & wellness expert for CNN, my career and life have evolved to put me on a mission to use my experience and platform to help EVERYONE—not just elite athletes—BREATHE BETTER, MOVE BETTER and FEEL BETTER in their bodies and minds to perform better in their careers and live happier, healthier, more successful lives.

So, whether you’re here looking for ways to help yourself or, as a coach or trainer, looking for ways to assist your clients, this site is designed for you.

MLB Strength & Conditioning Coach, Tampa Bay Rays
In my experience as a head strength and conditioning coach, it’s obvious when you come across a “difference maker.” I can say without reservation: Dana is difference maker. She has the knowledge, and–just as important–personality to get each individual to a new level. Dana’s grit and energy maximizes her effectiveness and makes working with her a pleasure.
Former NFL Head Strength & Conditioning Coach, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Dana is an expert in human movement, specifically the improvement of limitations and dysfunctions revealed through assessment. She also knows how to relate to the players as well as the staff, which makes it a joy to have a close working relationship with her.
Head of Strength & Conditioning, Minnesotta Timberwolves
I met Dana when I was 18 and fresh into baseball. She was not only extremely smart but also understanding of what I needed. Since then, she has been a constant in my offseason and pregame routines, and I owe her a lot of credit for keeping my muscles loose and limber.
Milwaukee Brewers 1st Baseman
I had the privilege of getting to work with Dana Santas for the first time during 2019 Spring Training with the Philadelphia Phillies. I will forever appreciate the impact that Dana’s mobility program has had on my baseball career. Not only has it helped me in my athletic performance and overall health, it’s also helped me gain a reputation as a good mover amongst the other teams I have played for. The movement principles I learned from Dana are implemented into my life daily and I look forward to expanding those principles with her Better Baseball Mobility Program!
New York Yankees Catcher
I noticed a change and a feeling of relief quite instantly after the first couple warm ups and sessions I did with Dana. Not only did I feel freedom in my torso and hips, I almost felt like I was maybe a little taller, which might be hard to believe as I’m already 6’7. These controlled breaths and movements were making a big impact on my posture. It has changed the way I prepare each day and each game I play.
New York Yankees All-Star Outfielder
When it comes to working with our athletes, there’s no one I trust more than Dana. She works to blend all aspects of mobility, stability and breathing, giving our players the tools they need to be successful. With her deep understanding of baseball athletes, she’s capable of individualizing routines to match their needs, not one size fits all. She’s at the top of her game and a huge member of our performance team!
Asst. MLB Strength & Conditioning Coach, Philadelphia Phillies
Dana is on top of her game when it comes to dealing with athlete durability and performance. Based on her understanding of the demands of sport, Dana ensures safety throughout her mobility/stability work. She also gets the nuances of dealing with pro athletes, enabling her to communicate effectively in a group or one-on-one. Dana helps the best of the best reach their potential!
