Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Deva Andrechuk and her voters for helping us donate $179,724.93 to our injured United States military veterans!


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

Just start!! Don't wait till tomorrow or Monday, just start. Pick small goals, a 5km, a mudrun, anything you really love. Ask a friend to join you. Build a tribe of people who enjoy those things with you. Get a nutrionist if you can, diet is so important to your health.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I have changed so much over the last few years, when I look back I hardly recognize myself. I quit smoking, started eating healty, started running then wanted more. I got a PT and did my first competion. It was an amazing experience with some amazing women. Hooked!! This year I am doing a mud hero with a good friend and fellow hockey mom in July. Competing in my second show in October and running a half marathon in the snow in November with a gradeschool friend. Fitness has helped me find me.

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

Fitness fund to fund more fitness, lol. The boys are in hockey and competing is expensive. Maybe put some money into our home and home gym.
