Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Malia 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 recommend people start watching what they put into their bodies. Just be more mindful of what they eat and drink. Exercise is so important but having a healthy diet is even more important. I encourage people to get into a fitness routine and start small. It’s progressive!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

It’s a mental game. You cannot always wait to be motivated to do or change something. It takes discipline and once you reach your goal, You find confidence, mentally stronger, physically stronger. Fitness is a game changer. It’s a great way to reduce stress, help sleep, and create healthy habits in the kitchen.

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

I would start a small gym as well as an online program geared to people who want to be fit but do not know where to start. I would like to help them with meal preps, guidance through their program and showing them how to feel more confident in the gym.
