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

Find out what athletic events best motivate you, so you always enjoy working out! Find the healthy foods that you love, and that make your body feel its best, & then you will enjoy living a healthy life. Explore the relationship you have with food, and make sure you use food as a tool for wellness, and not as an emotional outlet. And subsequently, find emotional outlets that serve you, so that your mind feels as wonderful as your body!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Being fit makes everything else I do, a little better! I am a better coach, principal, professor, & mentor, due to the positive effects fitness has on my well being. Committing to be fit sends the message to your psyche that you are committed to your well being; it also sends the same message to the rest of the world!

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

Take care of me (something we all struggle to allow ourselves to do)!!! I would love to see more of the world, and to breathe the air of my Sicilian ancestors. I have never been able to afford this trip, although my brother & mother & I hoped to go prior to both their deaths. I would go and honor them, and by default, honor my own emotional well being!
