Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Kelcie Gahley 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 to an individual looking to be fit and healthy to find a good balance. It is so important to find balance because its not always feasible for everyone to eat 6 meals a day and train hard 6 days weekly at gym. Find a way to look and feel better, while enjoying your life!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has been a HUGE part of my life ever since I can remember, but its influence for me changes with each season of life. Currently, fitness is helping me overcome immense grief and depression over losing our twin baby girls this year, after being on bed rest for almost two months inside the hospital. Fitness is helping me find myself again, and gives me the energy and self-love I need.

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

If I was the next Ms Health and Fitness, first of all I could hopefully become a positive influence for all woman looking for their purpose and balance. $20,000 would absolutely change my family's lives from paying off hospital bills and debt, and be able to have a few less things to stress about. Thank you for this opportunity!
