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

The biggest recommendation I can give is to never give up. Everyone’s fitness journey is different and unique to him/her. You can’t compare yourself to others. What’s fit in my eyes may be different in yours. Keep going and aim for consistency.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Becoming fit changed me completely. Being able to look in the mirror and like what I saw was a game changer. I started walking taller, walking with confidence, holding my head high, and most importantly, believing in myself and my capabilities.

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

I really have no idea. That is something I would have to sit down and really think about. Maybe I’d purchase the Jeep I’ve always wanted, maybe I’d save it, maybe I’d use it as a down payment on opening a gym. The options are endless and it would take me a long time to decide.
