Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Hannah Truitt 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 well overall starts with caring for your body. It then thanks you in return. I previously battled anorexia and binge eating. Once I shifted my perspective to 'thank your body, it will thank you back' everything changed. We are made in God's image and that is spectacular. I now believe with all my heart i'm beautiful, strong, and genetically blessed with a muscular build for a female which is SPECIAL and sexy-not weird. Start with health in mind-feeling good follows. Trust me

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has always been there for me.I started gymnastics when I was 4,fell in love with lifting because of injuries,tried distance running for a season,& now do bodybuilding in the bikini class.It's been my go-to in all seasons to keep my mind in a healthy place.My divorce was traumatic and painful, which started during my first prep for bodybuilding. I would've shrunk into isolation typically, but prep didn't let me pity myself for one second. I pushed hard & won

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

Now getting on my own two feet again, i'd invest in myself and a new future. I really want to be able to grow my influence in the health and fitness industry but money has been a huge obstacle. I currently work 3 jobs. It's just what I have to do right now. All good jobs: Alcohol & Drug Prevention, coaching gymnastics, & personal training, but this life is unsustainable and I want to be able to care for those I love and share my knowledge to help others & make a difference.
