Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Felicia Starks 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?

I truly believe there are no limits to what we can accomplish in life. We first have to decide that we truly want to be healthier, believe that nothing is impossible with God and then walk in this beautiful fit life adventure expecting that obstacles & life WILL happen but prepared to overcome anything! Take it one day at a time and give yourself grace daily to make mistakes & remember that tomorrow is a new day to do better. Strive for progress not perfection.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I used to be a pushover and wouldn't speak up for myself. Since I've become fit, I'm more confident in making decisions, improved my self esteem and confidence and actually cannot imagine fitness not being part of my everyday life. The most rewarding thing for me has being able to shop online or in the store without trying on clothes because I know the clothes will fit. My regret is not discovering how life-changing fitness is for my life before I turned 40!

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

I am a trainer & coach so I currently teach women about the importance of nutrition and fitness so the $20k would help me expand my reach within social media, locally and nationally. Nutrition and fitness isn't "fun or sexy" but once we understand how we can effortlessly reduce fat by changing our habits while still eating many foods we love, fat loss is easier! I know that by empowering women to fall in love with their body again, they will transform from the inside out. #mindbody
