Erica Funk

I am on a mission to show all women, young and old that being healthy and fit is easy even with little ones around. We will evolve together!

Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Erica Funk 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 them to just get active and find something you love to do. Create a fun lifestyle for you first then start including your family in it. When it comes to nutrition you have to learn to balance out your day by eating 5-7 times a day, small meals which will help rev up their metabolism. I would teach them what carbs, fats, and proteins are and when they should add them in to their day.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I found a passion for fitness when I was 19 years old. Years later I decided to become a personal trainer which led me into starting my own fitness business called EVOLVE F.I.T. where I can help clients online or in person. I feel that being able to help others achieve their goals, big or small, makes it all worth it. My 3 year old daughter has been with me working out from home ever since she was born. My clients love seeing her in the online workouts. Trying to be a good role model for her!

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

I would donate some of the money to help local schools be able to get healthy lunches and snacks for their students and staff. And to offer FREE personal training sessions for the ones who really need that extra support but just can't afford it. Try to help as many people as I can get healthy and fit!
