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

People overestimate what they can do in a year but underestimate what they can do in a decade. When it comes to your fitness, follow a plan that’s safe, fun and effective for you so that you can be consistent with it not just for 30 days, but a decade because consistency, overtime will out power anything else. When it comes to training, more is not always better. When it comes to eating, less is not always better. When it comes to your sleep, you probably need more! Health is your wealth.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness transformed me and has been the positive catalyst to my life. This lifestyle taught me discipline which carried over to my relationships and business. Fitness taught me that the greatest things in life happen when you get outside your comfort zone. Fitness is my place of healing, physically, mentally and emotionally. It is my happy place. Fitness is not what I practice or preach, It’s who I am!

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

Give it back to the Wounded Warrior Project, and help support the heroes who sacrifice their lives so that we could live in the greatest Country. Contest or not, my mission is to change the trajectory of the health and economic status of this country by providing guidance, accountability and tools to any woman who wants to lose weight in a healthy, sustainable way, be healthier and feel confident in her body and skin. That way, she can and live her best life, the one she truly deserves.
