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

Deciding to be fit and healthy was the best decision I’ve ever made for myself! If you want to change your lifestyle put your all into it. You only have one life, make the best of it. Never stop grinding and put in 110%. Whether you want to lose weight or gain muscle the feeling of being healthy is the best feeling ever. Hard work pays off in the end :)

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has a positive influence on my life because I’m doing what I love! I love seeing results and pushing myself harder each day to succeed my goals. The gym is a second home for me. A place I go to just be myself and let all emotions I have out. I’ve also created a lot of great friendships with people I’ve met in the gym who been by my side for all 4 years that I’ve been in the gym!

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 what I would do with $20,000 is put most of it in savings to go towards my life long dream of owning my own gym and fitness clothing line. The rest I would help my parents in any way I can to make there life the best that it can be!
