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

I am a firm believer that the power to achieve our goals is within ourselves. Convincing the mind is just as powerful as pushing the body. The key is in understanding that being fit and healthy is not only a lifestyle but a state of mind.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness and health are concepts that allow me to live a more fulfilling life. Having many hats can be stressful. I work full time as an analyst, I run a side business, I am a mom and a PhD student. At times, life may seem out of control and for me, health and fitness are a therapy. They are outlets to reduce stress and they help me keep focus on the various responsibilities of a busy life.

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

After a long educational journey, I am just about a month away from graduating from my PhD in Industrial Organizational Psychology. I would use the money to pay for a big part of my student loans.
