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

No one wakes up looking like a magazine cover, in fact, it takes hard work and time. Do not ever compare yourself to anyone. Go at your own pace and set your own goals, when you achieve it keep on pushing. My life goal is to inspire more confidence in women because for far too long we have struggled with body image. The reason I am doing this is tell every woman they are beautiful!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness is my release at the end of the day. I love being strong and feeling strong. I was never confident in my body....ever. Then I competed in a fitness show and watched my inner beauty come out. I had so much courage and confidence after that day. I realized it was not about looking perfect and it wasn't about coming in first. It was about setting a goal and crushing it. Now I have become so much stronger and I am excited for my next show.

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

Honestly I would say I would pay for nursing school, however I feel like winning this would be like winning the lottery. And I have always said if I won the lottery I would save animals. So I would donate this money to an animal shelter because helping others especially animals who are defenseless really makes my heart happy. Objects are just material items, but knowing you helped save a life is worth so much more than that! So let's do this. Vote for me and save some lives! Love you all.
