Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Kristy fenster-Avery 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 start making lifestyle changes one thing at a time. If you go on a “diet” then you will eventually go back to your normal lifestyle eating habits. Each week try to train a little harder and eat a little cleaner. It is about consistency and progression not perfection. Stay the course even if you have a bad day or a bad week. Lift weights and do some cardio because they both have huge health benefits.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness is everything my life is based around. From my business to my hobby to compete. The Lord uses me in my clients lives to grow them not just physically but also spiritually. It keeps me from finding unhealthy outlets and keeps my body and mind less lethargic and more focused. I have more endurance to continue to grow my business as well as parent and homeschool 2 children under the age of 7.

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

I would save a lot of it, but honestly, I would use it to put money down on a home. We have rented our home for the last 8 years and truly want to feel like our house belongs to us.
