What would you recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy?

I would recommend that you start by sitting less. Instead of sitting, stand. Next, walk more. In time, walk faster and farther. Eventually, walk-jog-walk. One day, you may run, and one day, you may win races. But be kind to yourself and progress slowly. Set SMART goals. And all along the way, honor that able body; it’s a gift!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness, in any fashion, makes me joyful. Whether I’m riding my road bike, teaching a GX class, hula hooping with my kids, or trail running, I’m in a state of flow, connected to heaven on earth, when I’m moving!

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

I recently resigned from my Executive Director job to be a present mom.The 20K would allow me to provide for my family, financially. The choice to resign from my job was to provide for them, emotionally.
