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

Set small attainable goals and focus on goals based around things other than weight. For example, if you’re just getting started, set a goal to exercise 3 days a week for a minimum of 30 minutes. It’s important to find a good coach that can help you set SMART goals. Lastly, HAVE FUN! :) Getting fit and healthy doesn’t have to be restrictive and boring and if it is, you’re less likely to turn that into a lifestyle.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness positively influences my life through relationships. Nothing puts a smile on my face faster than connecting with other women who are working towards a healthier lifestyle. It’s taken me 8 years, and MANY ups and downs with my fitness to learn how to actually love food and not be a prisoner in my own body. And now I get to help other women find the same power!

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

Becoming the next Ms Health and Fitness would mean that I would have a much bigger platform to speak to women who are intimidated by health and fitness, women who have tried time and time again to find a healthy balance, and women who feel they don’t deserve to put their health first. The $20,000 would allow me to grow my website to make it possible for me to reach more women and give them a safe place to learn and grow in their own health and fitness journey.
