In 2011 Paige was not the toned and fit woman that you see today on her social media posts. She was very thin with hardly any muscle tone. It was then that she was approached by a trainer at the gym about proper health and nutrition. After speaking with the trainer she decided to step out of her comfort zone and enter her first bikini competition.
Being unhealthy comes in all forms, whether it is being too thin or overweight. She desired to be a strong fit woman. Although she had grown up playing soccer and being active she had never made her health or fitness a priority. But over the next 4 months she trained harder than she ever had and pushed her body to limits she never knew she could. Finally competition day came; little did she know that her life would never be the same. She placed 2nd at Ronnie Coleman Classic, the biggest NPC statewide competition in the United States. The show resulted in exposure she never could have anticipated.
She is now a Fitness Trainer, Model, Icon and the Global Ambassador of F45 Training.
Let’s meet the fitness sensation, Paige Hathaway and get to know her up close in an exclusive interview with Namita Nayyar, President Women Fitness.
Ms. Namita Nayyar:
You have come an incredibly long way from being thin to fit, to placing 2nd at Ronnie Coleman Classic, the biggest NPC statewide competition in the United States. Walk us through your spectacular fitness journey.
Ms. Paige Hathaway:
This journey has been nothing short than challenging and exciting. I went from placing top 2 at the Ronnie Coleman to being turned down by top agencies in New York and then blindly passing out homemade “comp” cards at fitness expos, I was determined to become a fitness model. The biggest thing I’ve learned along the way would be to never give up something your heart desires. If I would have given up after the first thing that didn’t workout, I definitely wouldn’t be where I am today! After many thing that didn’t work out, I put forth into creating a social media that I could connect with people through fitness. After two years, my social grew to nearly 2 million followers and I knew right then and there I was on to something! Being from Oklahoma, I decided to take a risk and follow my dreams on a bigger scale to Los Angeles. Its such a wonderful thing to be able to connect with millions of people all around the world through fitness and I hope to continue to inspire and show people to be fearful to live out their dreams! Life is truly what you make of it.
Ms. Namita Nayyar:
You are a fitness model & trainer, motivational coach and entrepreneur. Introduce us to a day in your remarkable multi-dimensional lifestyle.
Ms. Paige Hathaway:
I wake up around 6:30 every morning (I’m not a morning person more of a night owl but I’m definitely trying to work on this). I usually spend about an hour in the am with my pups (on a walk and feeding them, I do this because I’m fairly busy throughout the day). Then breakfast (which is something like a protein smoothie with almond butter and oats or a breakfast burrito with beans … all depends on how much time I have).
After breakfast If I don’t have a scheduled photoshoot or meeting Ill head straight to a F45 workout or gym session (try to sweat before I get the day really started). Back to my house or cafe to crush emails which would either consist of client work, product emails, content creation ideas, conference calls with my manager and/or partnering companies. (I try to get all by desktop computer work done before I eat lunch).
Lunch is always usually a White Fish meal (I’ve been pescatarian for about 10 months now) a carb like sweet potatoes, couscous or quinoa and then a veggies!
Usually everyday I have a photoshoot or video shoot varies between a bunch of different things like: Website subscription tutorial videos, YouTube video, social media content, endorsement content and photo or video shoots for other outlets! Dinner is after all of that and usually I’ll do a fatties fish and veggies while I get caught up on anything else that came up that day and then bed around midnight (I’m a night owl).
