Hey there, friends! My name is Paige and I am one of the new voices of the Local Athletix Blog! I wanted to introduce myself, and give some background on who I am, and the purpose of the blog. I am 21 years old, and currently a student at Colorado State University studying journalism and business. I absolutely love health and fitness, specifically weight lifting. If you saw me you might not think that was the case because I am pretty small in size, but there is no better feeling (to me) than feeling strong. I fell in love with fitness about three years ago when I embarked on a weight loss journey. The freshman 15 hit me, and I knew I needed to do something about it. I lost the weight, and along the way learned to love challenging myself physically and mentally, and watching myself rise to those challenges. I’ve also been interested in writing since I was young, and have been looking for a way to connect my two loves of writing and health. I’m so excited to be a part of the Local team.
This blog is designed to be a space to talk about fitness, life, and overall health, as physical health is definitely not the end-all-be-all to living a healthy life. It’s going to address the good, the bad, the ugly, and the awesome, so be sure to check back on the reg.
Till next time,
Ps: Here's a photo of me eating pizza. Because pizza is life.
