Celeste Rose

I am a former pro basketball player and now turned Military spouse and mom of one beautiful daughter. I have made fitness a priority again.

Placed 41st

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

I would tell people to take baby steps and that it is not easy and it does not come over night. Take your Journey one day at a time. Most importantly do it for yourself

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has not only improved my physical but also my mental health.After having my baby and caring for her i lost myself along the way. I was not happy with how i looked or felt. I lost my confidence and raising a daughter i did not want her to see her mom not have confidence in herself. I could not tell my daughter to have confidence in all that she does when i did not have that confidence. I got back the gym while my Husband was deployed and i have not stopped and i don't plan on it .

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

I would take my family on a vacation.With my husband being in the military he gets deployed a lot and he is gone for 6 months at a time. So i would want to get in good memorable family time in with our daughter because it is a tough adjustment for a little one.
