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

Patience and drink lots of water! Most people quit before they really see results. It takes faith, consistency and patience to be fit and healthy. Plan workouts, hire a trainer, find a workout buddy, eat healthy and drink at least 3 liters of water a day!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

When I got fired from my job, I turned to fitness. When I got divorced, I turned to fitness. When my sister got brain cancer and after she passed, I turned to fitness. I must say I don’t know where I would be today if I didn’t have that outlet, that sense of community and support.

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

Buy more equipment for my personal training business, more education on nutrition, pay bills and perhaps a nice foam mattress bed.
