Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Vanessa Cruz Gonzalez 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?

As a wife, mom and business owner finding time can be hard but I've learned fitness is a wonderful reason to be a little selfish and make time for YOU. A healthy you leads to a healthy life and those around you benefit from it just as much as you do.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Praise the Lord fitness transformed my life not only physically but emotionally and mentally. It is my outlet and natural medicine for daily stress. Through fitness I have been able to acquire my own personal training studio where daily I help other women learn to love themselves and help them fall in love with their own fitness journey.

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

If I were to be the next Ms Health and Fitness I would expand my fitness studio and aquire better equipment, cardio machines and a protein bar for my amazing client's.
