Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Julie Crum 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 your motivation. Fitness is not easy and it’s not something people can give you. It’s something you give yourself. Your motivation can be a simple as looking a certain way, being healthy, or making new friends.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has influenced my life in more ways than one. I have been able to inspire patients and colleagues through my journey. Illness can cause depression and make people want to give up. Sharing my journey with them gives them hope and inspires them to keep trying and motivates them to love themselves enough to set goals. I have made friends from all over the world.

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

I would use the money to help others reach their goals and provide training programs to fit their needs.
