Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Jessica Moniz 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 balance. It's important to implement healthy changes into your lifestyle without an extreme on either end of the spectrum. This is the only way we can achieve physical, mental, and emotional health. This process is a journey in which you grown, change, and learn in small increments. Embrace all of the struggles and setbacks, and look forward to setting new goals down the road. Realize that patience is key and that these small changes will add up in the long run!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has given me the courage to tackle difficult times in my life where I was truly 'lost' in all sense of the word. Achieving things physically has proven to me that I am extremely strong mentally as well. It has also helped me to deal with anxiety and depression which has been a HUGE life savor! However, I truly feel the happiest when I am helping clients achieve goals in their lives. There is no other gratification than being told that you have inspired someone to make changes!

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

If I were to win $20,000 I would give my personal training clients free sessions for a certain period of time. I would also hold free group exercises class for a month. In addition, I would LOVE to meet and workout with some of my inspirations, and take some courses to learn more about the Science behind diet. Anything I can do to better myself and become more of a help to my clients!
