VO2 MAX, STRETCHING, AND THOUGHTS ON BARIATRIC SURGERY

November Featured Athlete

Paige Witter

Squats, Time with Fiancé Garrett, & PB Ice Cream are just a few of her favorite things.

“There are so many things that keep me coming back. To name a few-

1: The amazing staff and members of Memorial Hill, everyone is so friendly and inspiring.  2: …it has become something I look forward to doing everyday.  3: It’s sometimes the only place I see Garrett in a day…  4: It pushes me to be a better athlete everyday…”

We love the consistent hard work Paige brings into the gym, especially since she probably has the most crazy work schedule of anyone! You work hard on achieving new skills and always have a great attitude.

As many of you know, I struggle with chronic depression and anxiety that sometimes leave me paralyzed with grief and worry.
