A Shuswap resident and wellness studio owner is well on her way to being named Ms. Health and Fitness in a competition put on by Muscle and Fitness Hers magazine; she just needs votes from the public to get her into the next round.

The winner of the contest will receive $20,000 and a two-page spread in the magazine.

In her contestant page, Palmer writes that she has been at both ends of the fitness spectrum and so she sees the benefits a fit and active lifestyle have provided her.

“I stand taller, walk prouder, face my obstacles stronger and have brought soo much more happiness into my life and others,” Palmer writes.

Her recommendations to those who want to be fit and healthy are to stay positive, keep setting new goals, sweat a little every day and keep their bodies fueled with as much nourishment as possible.
