Erin Elsenbach

I want to inspire a change in the way women see and feel about themselves through fitness and self love.

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

Being fit and healthy is not only what you are physically doing and eating, but also your mindset. What you tell yourself on a daily basis can control the results you see in the mirror. Having positive, realistic goals and sticking to them consistently builds up your confidence and that in turn will keep you going when times get tough. Fit and healthy is a way of life and is all about baby steps and not beating yourself up when you hit bumps along your journey.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness improves my confidence, gives me more energy, and is an excellent stress reducer. I also consider myself a role model for my 10 year old daughter to live an active and healthy lifestyle.

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

If I were the next Ms Health and Fitness I would use the $20,000 to create the fitness clothing line for women that I have always dreamed of. A clothing line that comes in an extensive array of colors and fits every body type. I want women to feel confident and beautiful while working out, because that is a great form of motivation to keep going.
