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

Stick with something you love and allow that to guide your lifelong fitness journey, and be OKAY when it changes and looks different over the years! I have run in marathons, trained for triathlons and just recently started lifting weights (after my 3rd child was born in March of 2016) and then started to compete in bodybuilding shows, but every single time I grew to love what I was doing and had an amazing community of support beside me!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Making time for ME -for fitness- has always been positive... made me a better co-worker, wife and mother! And helped my family grow stronger... there was never a time I looked back and wished I didn't "make the time for fitness"... it is always the other way around!!!

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

I have been on a mission to share health and fitness with everyone in my community since I left the military in 2011 and would continue to use this platform to raise awareness and support Veterans by donating the 20k back to TeamRWB, Help Our Military Heroes and NineLine Foundation! I have been training the past 2 years for this ???? THE AMERICAN DREAM... This is what HERS Muscle & Fitness is all about... I would love to represent as a Mom, Army Wife, Iraq Veteran, Weight Lifter, A Dreamer!
