Susan Richard Gallant

I’m a mother of three amazing children. I want to show them that women can be strong and fit, intelligent, as well as beautiful.

Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Susan Richard Gallant 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?

I would recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy to decide! Our thoughts are the most powerful force in our lives. If you think it, you will be it. To be healthy and fit, you can’t procrastinate, hope, or complain about your lack of fitness, wishing you could magically transform. Magical transformation can happen, but it starts with the power of thought, the power to decide! Decide now! Decisively! Then write down your plan, bring it from thought into the physical, then do it!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness positively influences my life by proving to myself that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to. Becoming physically fit showed me through goal setting, that with dedication and hard work, all things are possible, increasing self confidence like never before. In addition, my physical well being is the best its ever been. Through proper nutrition and exercise, I rarely get sick, no meds for any physical ailments, and the energy I need to work a full time job and raise three kids.

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 spend the 20K on expanding my home reiki business, combining it with personal training. I would rent space and buy equipment to make my dream of being a full time personal trainer and reiki practitioner a reality. The combination of the two can be life changing, and can elevate health and fitness to a new level. Working closer to home would also allow me more time with my children, since I wouldn't have such a long commute to work.
