I have been a personal trainer and nutritionist (with a double-masters degree) for 10 years!

Placed 28th

in her group

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

For a healthy, active, and well-round life, your lifestyle should include: *Being a SUGAR minimalist! *Be a complex carb consumer! * A balanced lifestyle of physical activity, mental activity, and spirit acitivity! *BEING PERSISTANT- *PLANNING!!!! People do not plan to fail, but they FAIL to PLAN!!! ---ALWAYS SET GOALS! * When you dont feel like it, DO IT ANYWAY!!! Train when youre tired and you'll have more energy AFTERWARDS!!! And be more mentally focused! * KEEP an ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Focusing on fitness helped me over come the first hand witness of the death of my dad. Had I not found peace and serentity and focus in training, I dont know what would have happened. Now, as a daily focus, training helps me stay mentally sharp, physically strong, and in a great emotional mood with all of the endorphins released Post Workout!

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

If I won Ms. Health and Fitness, I would create a Physical Therapy program that involved DPT students to go out into the community and teach others (kids, adult, geriatrics) about obesity, diabetes, and other chronic diseases that can be CURED by health and fitness!! NOT BIG PHARMA!
