Kimberly Dawn Richardson

All conditioned things are impermanent and everything is conditioned. Don't waste precious time thinking, be obsessed and DO your passions.

Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Kimberly Dawn Richardson 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?

Don't believe your age. Experience is more important. Let your past be a catalyst for tenderness and generosity. Write a letter to your victim self and tell him/her you got this now. Show up for yourself like you would for your best friend in need. Stop giving up just because it doesn't happen the first few hundred times. Treat yourself like you would treat someone you don't want to let go of. Walk everywhere. Stay hydrated. Don't get stuck. Keep it between the ditches in life. EVOLVE!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Life is movement and we are designed to flow with pleasure. Fitness grants me the skill to conquer the inner adversaries we all must contend with. Everyday I show up for myself, provides another opportunity to show up for others. These experiences are a ripple effect. It is within fitness, that I gain clarity about what I am made of and how I relate to daily choices. Fitness teaches me how to be accountable for my life. Wellness is my priority. I love empowering others to become disciplined.

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

Donate $5,000 to ForceBlue Non-Profit Organization in Florida to help save the coral reef. My donation would support a special operations combat veteran by sponsoring his/her Force Blue Training. It would fund a recruits airfare, accommodation, meals and instruction, dive equipment, and training certification dives. Pay a portion of online prerequisites in nursing. Continue to serve as a PT and Pilates Pro, after 27 years in natural health/wellness, by empowering and inspiring discipline.
