I believe that our greatest growth comes from overcoming our greatest challenges.
Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Kristina Martinez and her voters for helping us donate to our injured United States military veterans!
I want others to know that being fit and healthy doesn’t have to be complicated. Making simple changes can lead to big results. Set a goal of changing one thing at a time such as drinking more water, increasing daily activity or swapping certain foods for healthier alternatives.
Fitness is more than just physical activity for me. Sure it is important for overall health, but in fitness I have found myself. I have discovered my strengths and my weaknesses. I have learned that if I set my mind to achieving a goal, I am capable of accomplishing it. I have created some of my strongest relationships in the gym or at a competition. When you surround yourself with like-minded individuals, you empower one another and help each other succeed in all areas of life.
If I were to be named the next Ms Health and Fitness, I would use the $20,000 to grow my coaching business. My emphasis will be on educating trauma survivors about health, fitness and nutrition as critical components for their healing journey.
