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

Just do it. We are the only ones who can hold ourselves back. Stop making excuses, get off the phone, social media and use that time to go for a run, a hike, or just go to the gym. HYDRATE! Water is your best friend. Don’t stress over a number on the scale and take plenty of progress photos. Read your labels, and just have fun with your journey.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Honestly, fitness saved my life. Fitness has given me a chance to be the best version of myself. I have been given the opportunity to compete and I’ve made some amazing friends who share the same passion. Overall, I am more active, and I feel amazing not just physically, but emotionally and mentally as well. Fitness has raised my self esteem and has also given me the chance to be a positive influence to others.

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

I’d like to pay for my tuition to continue my education in nutrition and food science. I’d like to build my own personal gym for convenience and have guests over that are new to the fitness world and scared to walk into a gym due to fear of not knowing what to do or where to begin. I’d like to make people feel confident and comfortable so they can walk into the gym and own their next workout.
