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

You are already a winner the moment you decide to make the choice to begin to get healthy and into shape. It's not about being the skinniest, the most muscular, or looking like a magazine cover. It's about starting somewhere and being brave enough to say, " I'm going to do this. Today, I'm going to change my life." A little more each day, and you will begin to see results.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

We all have daily things that distract us and take us off our track to where we want to be. Bills and going to work are just one small slice of our routine. Life is a struggle. But, I choose to get up every day, stay motivated and active, and work my very hardest to achieve my goals. Dance/physical fitness is my escape. I put in my ear phones, hear the music, and become anything I want to be and get stronger and stronger emotionally, mentally, and physically.

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

Easy. I would finally get to give my 3 year old daughter comfort, a beautiful place to live, and a future education so that she will not have to struggle quite so much as I have had to for a while. Waitressing, living one bill at a time, and moving from one place to another gets exhausting. I can only pray and hope that I may finally get an opportunity to put some money aside for us so that she can go to a great school, live in a clean area, and be signed up for physical activities.
