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

Start doing something that you love. If you love running, run. If you love lifting heavy things, lift heavy. Not everyone’s fitness journey looks the same; so make it your journey. Diet plays a major role in a healthy lifestyle as well. It’s about balance and moderation.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

A lot of health issues run in my family - obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure. When I had my own health scare a few years back, it is what I needed to kickstart my own journey to living a fit lifestyle. Fitness isn’t just about being physically healthy, but mentally healthy as well. Living a fit lifestyle is just good for you all around.

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

I would start my own business in the fitness and nutrition industry. I am hooked on this lifestyle and would love to be able to help others reach their goals.
