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

Set small short term goals to reach your long term goal. Fit looks different on everybody and don’t compare yourself. Be you and not them. Fitness is a journey and it’s about progress not perfect.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Lifting weights and working out literally helps me fight depression. I am forever grateful that “I Get To” work out. My fitness classes have changed my life that I now get to share that inspiration and I’m able to empower others when I teach my group fitness classes. The other awesome part is my kids love to exercise with me and desire to stay healthy and that’s all because they’ve watched me work out over the years.

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

I would want to become the most authentic version of me. I would desire to better myself and be the best version of me by investing in advanced instructor trainings in body pump and body combat. I would also train to be an elite instructor. I would work toward becoming a national presenter for Les Mills in Body Pump and body combat as well as work toward becoming a trainer in those classes so that I can train others to be fiercely authentic around the United States.
