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

This should be your lifestyle, something that you enjoy doing every day. Dieting shouldn't be a punishment, but a motivator when you see results after every workout.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

It helps me take care of my body, my mind and soul. Fitness brings more confidence into my daily life and helps me grow to be more positive. A stronger person can achieve anything when they put their mind to it.

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

I would love to help young people who suffer with diseases such as anorexia and bulimia. Fitness helped me to fight this and become a healthier and happier woman.
