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

Be your own healthy and fit - whatever that looks like to you and your goals.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

It’s made me value lessons. We dedicate months of preparation for a few hours on the platform. “When the Iron doesn't want to come off the mat, it's the kindest thing it can do for you. If it flew up and went through the ceiling, it wouldn't teach you anything. That's the way the Iron talks to you.” If we didn’t experience failure. If we didn’t experience pain. How could we ever truly appreciate success? And with success comes humility.

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

That's a loaded question but I would save most of it that way it's accessible and can go towards any goals or plans I have for the future.
