Alissa McDaniel

I am a strong, trustworthy, and honest person. I believe that if I am healthy and beautiful on the inside that it will shine on the outside.

Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Alissa McDaniel and her voters for helping us donate to our injured United States military veterans!

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

Sometimes it can get overwhelming, life, trying to lose or gain weight, being a parent, student, etc. We need to remember to do what we can and strive to be better. Not better then anyone else, but better then who you were yesterday.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I am a mother, a sister, a granddaughter, a veteran🇺🇸, and a friend. It is up to me to be a role model of strength. No matter what life has thrown at me, I'm still here. I wear my scars proudly. Strength isnt always muscle, but a healthy mind and the ability to do what you didnt think you could've done yesterday.

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

There are a lot of things that $20,000 could do. I've had my eyes set on expanding my business to be the way I dreamed it would be. Caffeinated Canines is the beginning. The end goal is to have a facility to rescue, train, and rehome canines for veterans and everyday civilians that need our support. A safe haven for those that have served our country whether in uniform overseas or right here across the street.
