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

I would say,"What do you want? With no limitations, what do you truly want for yourself? Okay, why? Good. So what does a day in your life look like 6 months from now? You have to create a vision of you and make it SO real, that nothing can stop you from making it real. You must envision every detail down to exactly what you're wearing and what you're doing. You must and will want it SO badly. Once you have that vision, you will do whatever it takes to have it and therefore, you will have it

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has allowed me to CREATE my life. I lost about 40lbs between the photos above. I created my dream body & my confidence was through the roof. I took control of something that felt SO out of my control for my entire life. I even stepped on stage & showcased my physique in the bikini division of bodybuilding. This inspired me to take control of my LIFE - I left my career path as a civil engineer, moved from NH to CA, and started my own business (RagoFIT). It's just the beginning.

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

The majority of that money would funnel back into my business. I am a coach to women who struggle with confidence, anxiety, disordered eating, and body image. I currently am only able to work with 20 women at a time in order to give them the attention and guidance they need. I would use the funds to expand my business and create a products that would allow me to reach and teach my methods to hundreds of thousands of women. This is my main focus.
