Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Jessica Henderson 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 recommend you to evaluate your current lifestyle first. Pick your bad habits and behaviors and focus on changing those first. Our life is a sum of our daily habits that when we change change a bad habit to a goof habit then it is much easy to stick with healthier lifestyle.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

It gave me a sense of well being and a purpose of life. Going through a breast cancer journey was so much easier with fitness and it also gave me the opportunity to help others through my experience. Fitness is more than physical but connecting with mind and spiritually.

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

I started a small fitness studio back in 2013 with $5000. It is still small and I would love to use this money to expand my business. When I opened the studio, I told myself that I will charge lower than the most places so people can keep coming. If I have some back up money, then I can probably lower more that more people can come to the studio.
