What would you recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy?

I love how fitness inspires breakthroughs in all aspects of someone's life. Finding the ability to dig deep allows people to change so many other things... The quality of their days truly lived grows and I love being witness to that.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

For myself my journey to fitness was born out of a dark time in my life... Fitness helped me discover a strength I didn't know that I had. Its changed my entire life and I'm so grateful for that. I had so many fears and it took the act of learning to run 5km to help me face them. Overcoming them caused a ripple effect. I ran 108km, quit the secure job I hated and became a trainer, launched my own business and try my damndest to inspire people everyday.

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

I'm a single mama to two girls who know how hard I work. I'd be planning a vacation (and leaving my phone behind :)) and then investing in my business (and in turn, our future).
