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

Start somewhere, anywhere. And ask for help. We all started our journeys at some point and had plenty of help along the way. Start with small things like making healthier choices, being more active, reading a little more. Most importantly don’t ever give up on yourself.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Well it creates endorphins and “endorphins make you happy” Legally Blonde, anyone?! But seriously, I was on a pretty destructive path before I found health and fitness, I think it gives an outlet, somewhere I can channel my stresses and release my problems. I believe it helps me stay sharper mentally because it always requires work and learning. And because it’s also my professional field it allows me to help other women everyday, for them to believe in themselves again.

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

I would use it as a down payment for a home. My fiancé and I want to buy a house and are in the process of saving to do so but that would definitely speed the process up which would be awesome for my little guy so he can get into a better school system for middle and high school.
