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

* Take a small step every day. Even baby steps bring you a little bit closer to your goals everyday. * Ask yourself daily: What can I do today to become a better me? * JUST DO IT even when you are tired, even when you don't feel like it. The hardest step to make, is the one out of your couch. * Be you. Don't try to become someone else. Become the best version of you.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

A healthy lifestyle brings peace. You get more organised. You know exactly when and what you have to do. The effects of a healthy diet are huge. You feel more energized, more focussed and confident. I teach other girls the fitness lifestyle and I can tell you.. The feeling of them succeeding is amazing.

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

I don't know yet. I would definitely invest a part of the money in myself, like starting a new education. My dream is to start my own gym, with all the equipment I choose to have. So probably another part of the money will go there, or to the savings I have for my own gym. The rest will be to finance my competitions, since competing isn't cheap.
