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

Find something that YOU like to do. I have found that if you like your exercise plan, you are more willing to stick with it. There is no perfect exercise plan for anyone; however, consistency is key. Find something that you like, stick with it, and results will come. What works for me might not work for the next person. Do you love walking, yoga, Crossfit, group classes, weight training, cycling, swimming, etc? Find what you like and go for it. Small changes now lead to big changes later.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has been a part of my life for quite sometime and I've learned that it's not all about looking a certain way but feeling a certain way as well. I worked at a YMCA in my hometown in Louisiana for a few years and saw how an exercise program, partnered with a healthy diet, can have such a positive impact on someone's life. Then, when I was 19, I knew I wanted to be involved in helping others reach their fitness goals. I thrive on seeing others succeed. They motivate me!

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

I would donate this money to a nonprofit called, One Stronger. Because of our love of health and fitness, my husband and I started this organization to help provide FREE support, personal training and coaching for those individuals who are truly struggling to find their identity because of a weight problem. One Stronger provides these individuals with access to a health and fitness routine at no cost. A fitness program shouldn’t cost a fortune and access to information can be free!
