Christina Rivera

I am a figure competitor in the NPC as well as a power lifter. Fitness changed my life in more ways than one.

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

Don’t let anyone or anything stop you. If your first goal is just to get out and go for a walk once a day then do it. Don’t hold back because others have opinions or you think you can’t do it. Yes you can because we all started in the same position. Also, don’t be afraid to ask questions or get education on something new in the fitness industry. Someone out there is always willing help others especially if they love health and fitness.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

If it wasn’t for fitness I know in my heart that I would be living a very negative life right now. After many bad blacked out nights due to purposely drinking myself away, I found fitness again. I found love for myself again.

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

A good portion would go to the Special Olympics. Having an Austistic brother who loves sports always put a smile on face and I just want many who are in his position to continue to enjoy the sports that they participate in.
