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

Being fit and healthy is so much about learning to live the lifestyle. So many people get into fitness and go to unhealthy extremes to try to look a certain way. I think creating balance in your training and nutrition program can set you up for success for life instead of extreme programs that are not sustainable and can be harmful to your health and wellbeing. Realize there is no quick fix, commit to the lifestyle, stay consistent, and learn to love yourself and aspire to greatness always!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness is my life, passion and career. I have always been athlete and competitive so fitness has always been part of my life as well as being in the industry for 20 years Training, Instructing, Competing, Fitness Modeling and owning my own Fitness Studio, Younique Physique, for 13 1/2 years. It has been rewarding being able to Inspire others by actively living the Fitness Lifestyle which in return inspires me to continue doing what I love and always working towards a better version of myself.

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

If I was the next Ms Health and Fitness I would probably take a much needed vacation with a small portion of that because I don’t get the opportunity to take much time off owning my own business. However the majority of the money I would put into continuing my education as a Holistic Healthcare Practitioner so that I could phase that into my Fitness and Wellness business and be able to help my clients on an even deeper level.
