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

Start with what you have and what you love! Follow where you inclinations take you and reach out for help if you are having a hard time meeting your goals or finding what works for you. Know that the journey is ahead is exactly that, a journey. Your health and fitness is a long-term game that will continue to evolve. Go at a pace that works with YOUR life!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Oh man, where do I start, fitness has only ever influenced my life for the better. It continues to develop my confidence and self-worth; It keeps me in high spirits, and it pushes me to show up for myself in all areas of life. Fitness has always been the beginning of my physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual life transformations. Fitness is the beginning of awakening.

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

I would create a non-profit focused on bringing health and fitness retreats to underprivileged communities around the US. Using fitness to help women create mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical resiliency and community. These retreats would create the space needed for women to learn how to move, eat, breathe, sleep, relieve stress, re-connect to their hearts, and who they are outside of their current stressors and oppression. They would create a space for transformation to root and grow.
