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

It's never too late to become fit and healthy. In fact, you don't even need to have any level of fitness before you jump right in. The first step is getting out of your comfort zone and joining a gym. Start off with going to classes, work on building your confidence level. Get a workout buddy. Invest in a Nutrition Coach to help achieve your goals. You can do anything you set your mind to. Believe in yourself and the rest will follow. We all started somewhere :)

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness positively influenced my life because it gave me hope. Hope that no matter what condition I have I could still live and lead a healthy and fit lifestyle. It taught me how my body functions. How nutrition is key to achieving goals. It taught me that if you put your mind, heart and soul into leading a more sustainable lifestyle the results are endless. It changed my life for the better. I am the happiest that I have ever been and I know being fit can positively influence your life too!

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

If I were the next Ms Health and Fitness I would use the $20,000 to invest to further my education so I can better help others, invest into my Nutrition Coaching business and donate to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention as this hits close to home.
