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

Take each day one step at a time. LOVE your individual journey, OWN your progress and GIVE yourself love and patience. Always remember to be consistent, not perfect. Small changes add up to big things in the long term! Find others who inspire you and be a sponge - learn and try new things to get out of your comfort zone. Comparison is the thief of joy....stay in your own lane and keep pushing. When your motivation runs out, rely on your habits. And most importantly, you’re gorgeous! ❤️

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I have never had the best self esteem so fitness has given me so much confidence on both the inside and outside. I have transformed my body in ways I never imagined and have an incredibly healthy relationship with food. It has given me the courage to share my story on Instagram so other people can know that they are worthy and capable to do anything they set their mind to. Fitness is a constant that no matter where I am in my stage of life, I can find a gym to feel at home and feed my soul.

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

My dream is to help as many people as I can on their health and fitness journey so I hope to be able to start my own Personal Training business! I would also LOVE to start a fitness clothing brand as well:)
