Her Work Out Motivation
One of my favorite things about working out and dieting is it has tested my true strengths and has taught me discipline. Progress from setting small goals for myself is also something that keeps me motivated. I like to push my limit/goal and show people that #IMPOSSIBLEISNOTHING.
Her Role Models
Thats a tough one to answer because there are so many beautiful strong women to choose from, but Jaime Eason and Chady Dunmore are on the top of my "who inspires me" list. Jaime has appeared on hundreds of magazine layouts and yet still remains sincere and humble. She has changed the lives of many, and motivated people to do the unthinkable, and I am absolutely in love with how she is open about her faith. Miss Chady is someone whom I've adored and I find her transformation story so inspiring. She's beautiful inside and out. She understands the struggle and seems as through health/fitness has found her true fairy tale ending. I pray I am a positive role model and true inspiration to young ladies like these ladies have been to me.
A little more about Paige:
1. What or who got you started working out?
In 2011, I decided to get into the world of fitness because I needed a change and a new focus/direction. I was approached by a local well known trainer in Oklahoma City, OK and began to train for my first bikini show. I became addicted to how you could workout and improve you body, mind and lifestyle. After four short months of training, I entered in the biggest state show in the United States and placed 2nd. "Bodybuilding" has taught me so much about myself. It tests my strength and will power. It has taught me discipline and how if you truly put your mind to something, your desires through hard work and dedication can be obtained.
2. What is your favorite meal to get lean?
I LOVE breakfast food. so simple egg whites and oatmeal with peanut butter is my go to favorite meal when I am dieting!
3. What's your favorite cheat meal?
I'm a cheese pizza kind of girl and of course you have to make it complete with some fro-yo! #BOOM heaven
4. What are your goals in the fitness industry?
If you win the FLEX Bikini Model Search, what would that mean and what would you do with the title? I'm a huge advocate for women and strength training is one misconception I am a huge believer in. I want to show women that strength training shapes your body, defines your muscles, and gives you a lean physique so they can put their fears to rest about getting big bulky muscles. I'm not here to make a name for myself. I'm here to make a difference and by winning the FLEX BIKINI MODEL search I will be able to inspire and help more people. I choose to create a climate of hope, give the resources needed for a person to succeed and help them recognize the potential that is locked down inside of them to reach their fitness goals. I know how being fit and living a healthy lifestyle has benefited my life and I want to share it with others.
