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

JUST GET STARTED! There will never be a "perfect" time, so that means ANY moment is yours for the taking! Set small goals and build on them. Reach out to a trainer or a nutritionist or both--do your research and find someone you trust. Also, tell EVERYONE your goals! When I chose to change my life I held myself accountable by telling all my friends and family about my plan to eat well and hit the gym 6 days a week. Lastly, never change for anyone but YOU.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness elevates every single facet of my life. Prioritizing my nutrition and my workouts allows me to be a better Health Care Provider, a better partner, a better trainer, a better business owner, and a better friend to others because I have the ENERGY to invest in the things and people I love. Reaching my fitness goals--especially the goal of becoming a fitness competitor--reinforced the idea that I am capable of anything I set my mind to. I show up as my best always.

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

If I were to become the next Ms. Health and Fitness, I would use $20,000 in a couple of ways. I would donate a portion of this to Girls on the Run, because I think this organization does amazing things to build confidence in and promote health in young girls. I would also use this money to help grow my own training and nutrition business--Root Power Nutrition-- to help busy professional women prioritize their health. EVERY individual deserves to experience their best quality of life!
