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

Consistency!!! Changing your lifestyle can be hard, make small changes and let them stick before moving on to the next change. Making sure to just worry about one day at a time, conquering life the only way we can, one day at a time. Preserving through the bad days makes the good days that much better! Trust the process and work hard and you will reap the rewards, not only a healthier you, but a happier you as well! You are your only limit, choose you, today and every day!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has created not only physical changes but such amazing mental changes. As I physically get stronger, I mentally grow and have become empowered. Knowing I am capable of so much more than I have allowed myself to realize, pushing myself out of comfort zones, has allowed me to grow in all aspects of my life. I’ve worked through some of my toughest times in my life with the help of “gym therapy”. I attribute my dedication to a lifestyle of fitness to all it has given me in

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

I would love to be able to invest in my studio/little gym that I just opened 1.5 months ago. I have been a fitness instructor for over 7 years and am so happy to finally have my own place. Currently in a basement that has been graciously been offered to me so I could get going, I would love to be able to get the new flooring (I have old flooring from a gym when they redid theirs) and all the equipment I still need but have lacked the funds for. Helping as many people I can is always the goal!
