What would you recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy?

Do it for yourself. Don't do it for someone else. The only person you have to beat is the person you were yesterday... because at the end of the day, you are your only competition. Start now, and be kind to yourself. You'll surprise yourself at how much you can accomplish.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

It calms my mind - in a world where it's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of the latest and greatest, fitness forces me to focus and let everything else go. It has shown me time and time again that I can't pour from an empty cup - I have to take care of myself, and when I take care of myself, I'm able to bring my WHOLE self to each class and client.

If you were the next Ms Health and Fitness, what would you do with $20,000?

I'd invest in community fitness programs. I do not think fitness should be something that is just for wealthy adults - I'd love to bring fitness to inner city communities who have been forgotten in the boutique fitness race.
