Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Saleen Vanpatten 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 get moving! There is no set routine that we as humans should follow. Life is not routine so our workout regimens shouldn't be either. Whatever you like to do, just get out there and do it!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I have been an athlete for as long as I can remember. I was a gymnast and a swimmer when I was younger. In college I got into CrossFit. It had been a life altering experience for me. I have gained physical, mental, and emotional strength from CrossFit. I have recently earned my Crossfit Level 1 certification and plan on continuing my education.

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

If I were the next Ms. Health and Fitness, I would use the $20,000 to begin my own Crossfit gym and begin a Crossfit Kids program at the school I am employeed at.
