Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Tarina 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 that they find a plan that works for them and make their primary goal to stick to that! Commitment and structure is what will get you the farthest in health and fitness.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has brought so much joy, motivation, and positive outlook into my life. I’m always motivated to lift that extra rep or build a little more definition in my abs. There’s always something I work towards.

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

With $20,000, I would save a portion for my university tuition, invest some into my Roth IRA to support my future, and donate a chunk to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona; mu favorite charity that I have volunteered with for 4 years.
