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

Know your why; what is driving you to want to be fit and healthy? And refer back to that often because that is your source of motivation. And then go do it for you! Not for someone else, not for likes, not for followers, for you! If it doesn’t mean anything to you personally, not only are you going to have a hard time sticking to it, but your success, your feeling of accomplishment and self worth will be based on external validation. And that is a losing game every time.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

The gym is where I feel ???? in my element regardless of how the day is going. Lifting doesn’t just build physical strength, it builds mental strength, it builds integrity, it builds confidence. And confidence is beautiful. So many women struggle with self-confidence and any opportunity to build that is an opportunity that should be taken. Fitness allows the chance to challenge, reach higher capabilities, and validate yourself without comparison against others, but simply who you were yest

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

I would pay off my truck, pack it up, call up some buddies and take a summer long road trip down south.
