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

Fitness is about consistency. You do have to make changes in your life but find a plan that you can obtain long term and that fits with your lifestyle. It is not all or nothing, I believe in balance in your relationships, your career, fitness and whichever other commitments you have in your life. You can be successful in all aspects of your life.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness gives me a positive attitude during my every day life. You can always find me with a smile on my face and encouraging others. I find balance and structure in fitness and health, when you take care of yourself, you can take care of others and have the energy and confidence to be able to push yourself towards achieving your goals.

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

I would use the money to follow my dreams of becoming an IFBB pro, to use towards competing while working to earn my MBA to further my career. I would also spend some of it on cheat meals. :)
