How does fitness positively influence your life?

An unexpected perk of my fitness lifestyle was becoming a role model for girls & young women. After I was told I was an inspiration, I realized I was influencing females to be fit. It’s an honor & keeps me motivated. Choosing morning workouts & healthy routines gives me a sense of accomplishment. This impacts my attitude & choices for the rest of the day, including getting adequate rest, which motivates me for the next morning. It's even better if completed with others!

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

The $20,000.00 would fund a program that educates, trains, and develops healthy lifestyle habits for young women. Areas to be addressed include positive self-image, exposure to a variety of fitness options, habit training, developing peer to peer support, nutrition education, & injury prevention. Each female would learn how to manage their thoughts, words, actions, habits, and character to positively influence their life and the lives of others.
