Amanda Aguzzi

Health & fitness are the core of my being. It’s not just about looking good, it’s about feeling good.

Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Amanda Aguzzi 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?

Do what you enjoy to stay fit! This could be hiking, yoga, lifting weights, or dancing.. the effort is easier when you like what you’re doing! I also recommend starting with small steps. Big lifestyle changes don't happen over night and making small daily changes to your routine will make a big difference over time. Some small initial steps may be walking every day, drinking more water, getting more sleep or eating more greens. Master one habit at a time. You’re on your way!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

When I exercise, I feel at peace in the present moment. It gives me clarity, focus, happiness & confidence. The influence is so great that I’ve established a 5am cardio routine to mentally prepare myself for the day. Competing as an IFBB Bikini Professional has allowed me to establish structure, discipline, a deep knowledge of my body and a strong desire to be better in all aspects of my life.

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 money to establish a health and fitness centered community outreach initiative. This would help educate people on the importance of their own health & fitness by explaining what it means to live a fit lifestyle, giving the necessary tools on how to realistically make this lifestyle change and providing opportunities to act on it. Helping others discover the amazing benefits of health & fitness would be truly fulfilling!
