Face of FITNESS Contest Finalists

Jessica Mason, 27, San Diego

A recent fitness accomplishment: Becoming a personal trainer and then becoming a group exercise instructor!

A personal "I Did It!" moment: Becoming a finalist in this competition :)

A health challenge she's had to overcome: Accepting who I am and the body I have has meant being okay with not being "perfect." I now just strive for the best I can be.

Favorite (healthy) things to eat: Greek yogurt and homemade granola.

Favorite workouts: I love mixing it up: Hiking, swimming, hot yoga, barre, strength training -- it's something new every day!

Personal fitness motto: "You can do it!" and "Get over yourself!"

How she stays motivated: To be totally honest, a lot of my exercise motivation is to be able to eat more and treat myself! Plus, I know that after a workout I will feel more balanced.

How she influences others to be healthier: Being a trainer, I try to give my clients the best knowledge and tools I have. Consistency is key, so I try to instill that in them by texting them constant reminders of what they should be doing!

On her fitness bucket list: Mini-triathlon and skydiving.

What she tells her clients: Being "fit" is so much more than how you look. It's a lifestyle. It's trying to make the best decisions for yourself everyday and fitting that into your schedule. Exercising might not always look and feel as ideal as you might wish, but every little bit adds up to create a fitter you.

Yes, I agree...let's have someone who's in their 50's and 60's!!! I work out regularly and feel that I'm in better shape today than I was in my 20's and 30's...and I'm sure I'm in good company!

I also admire all of these YOUNG women - especially since several had overcome physical problems - but I was in that shape also when I was in my 20's and 30's but there wasn't a lot of encouragement for women over 60. I am 69 retired this year and now take a Zumba class 3 times a week - mow my own lawn with a push mower - walk the golf course at least once a week -still would like some strength training tips
