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

The most important thing when it comes to being fit is that you keep a good routine. Do something active every single day for at least an hour and don’t be too hard on yourself! Keep things fun and adventurous.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has been my outlet for stress as well as my sanctuary for deeper levels of thinking since I was 17 years old. As a mom of 2 it’s tough to relax, but working out gives me that time to be alone and reflect on my life and my goals.

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

I would use the money to create a training program for substance abuse centers that wish to incorporate fitness into their daily regimen. I believe these people would greatly benefit from fitness by developing a healthy outlet.
