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

Wanting to become fit and healthy is a commitment. It’s about finding balance. You need to make sure that you’re in the right mind frame, balancing out your workouts, nutrition, work life and personal life for optimal results. It’s about finding a routine that’s going to fit your life and make you happy. There is no short cut when it comes to being fit and healthy. It takes time and dedication. Enjoy the process.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness positively influences my life in so many ways. I see fitness as more than just an image. Fitness has allowed me to reach out to individuals who struggle with medical conditions, anxiety, weight loss and injuries. Helping them decrease their symptoms and weight leading them to a healthier lifestyle. Fitness also allows me to express my passion and drive in life. It has given me more confidence as an individual to lead a healthier lifestyle and has inspired others to do the same!

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

Ever since I started my career as a personal trainer and fitness instructor I’ve always dreamt of having my own gym. Having the opportunity to win $20,000 would give me the chance to do just that. A place where all my clients can come together as a community to reach their highest potential.
