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

Find something you enjoy to do while being active for example walking, dancing, biking, hiking etc... Next step is to make small healthier changes in your diet. Keep in mind the more consistent you are the happier you’ll feel and the more results you will see.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has influenced me in many positive ways. It boosted my confidence, self esteem and made me more motivated. Fitness has helped me strive to create a better life for myself.

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

If I was to be the next Ms. Health & Fitness I would invest in my own business “GetfitbyMari” and have Expo’s around the world to get others together and coach them on how they can live a healthier/happier lifestyle
