Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Barbara Russell-Mahoney 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?

Set a goal and reflect on why you want to transform your health. Work hard to achieve that goal with healthy nutrition choices, the right macro ratio and exercise. Cardio and weights have helped me to transform with over 50 lbs weight loss and strength gains. It is never too late to transform! Turn on the switch, stay disciplined, celebrate the positives, learn from the challenges and you will succeed in obtaining optimal health and fitness! You’ve got this!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has given me the gift of more energy and life so that I can continue to contribute optimally to my family, community and my work as a physician. With a 10 year old daughter, fitness allows me to keep up with her. I hope to do so for many years to come. This IS a lifetime commitment and journey.

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

With 20000 dollars, I will invest in my daughter’s future and also look at innovative ways to assist people in achieving optimal health and fitness. As we mature in age, achieving and maintaining optimal health is vital to enable us to make an optimal contribution to family and the world around us.
