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

Consistency is key! There is no one diet or fad exercise that is going to change your health and your life. Motivation comes and goes so what you continually do, will be what you manifest. Fitness excellence comes from a balanced diet with moderation and an unrelenting and consistent exercise routine. The best thing about fitness is that it is available to everyone, no matter who you are! It is also something that brings personal satisfaction, as you are solely responsible for your success.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has brought me happiness, health, friends, jobs, hobbies, and a drive and passion unlike anything else I have in life. Opportunities have opened to me, and also allowed me to positively affect and change others lives. So, fitness brings success and life fulfillment as I can help others live a better and more fulfilled life. What is better than living your best life while helping others do the same?

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

I would invest in my fitness business. I have a small client base at this time that is transforming bodies, and lives. This money would help me build this business and spread my positive message while helping a greater number of people reach their fitness goals! I would also use the money to help pay for my competitions. What I do is very expensive and having this money to help me fulfill my personal fitness dreams would be life changing!
