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

Having a fit lifestyle is not something that you have to torture yourself to get or give up everything you love both food and passion wise in your life. Fitness is totally customizable and can fit any and all lifestyles with a little work and guidance. Never be afraid to reach out and seek guidance to find your success. You would be surprised by how many people have/ are currently going through the same struggles you are going through when it comes to self positivity & a healthy lifestyle.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I grew up always playing sports. Being a shy person, sports were the one area I was able to shine and really felt comfortable being myself in. When I started to really dive more into fitness, it was when I was at my lowest and darkest point of my life. I was at a time where I no longer loved myself and seeked alcohol and food to numb my body. Fitness helped me regain my mind, body and confidence and allowed me to start living a life I had only ever dreamt about.

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

I would use that money to re-invest into my current and future clients. Receiving that amount of money would give me the opportunity to spend more time with my clients both one-on-one as well as give me the time to reach out to more health and fitness professionals. In addition, I would be able to do further research on how to create a successful relationship between you and fitness and most importantly to spread my message to multiple states across the country through the strength of numbers.
