Mercedes Sellis

Weight has been the biggest battle for me my entire life. Going up and down on the scale has been such a roller coaster. In August reality hit me again and I became so unhappy with how I looked and felt about myself. I woke up and decided to make a change….. once again. People who know me know that the a “P” word (promise) means the world to me and it’s something I would never break. I finally made a PROMISE to myself that I won’t allow myself to go off the deep end again. Life throws so many things your way, but it’s your choice on how you handle them. Life has been pretty crazy for me lately, but I’m choosing self-happiness. I’m choosing change that makes me happy. I’ve lost 56 pounds and I’m not giving up. I’ve got a long way to go, but a beautiful journey ahead. #LoveLife #SelfHappiness #motivation

Emilee Fischer

I don’t even know what to say besides that I feel unstoppable, and this is absolutely the best shape I’ve ever been in my life. I lost 15 pounds! This wasn’t just a quick diet that I did where I usually gain the weight back within two weeks, it was a full blown lifestyle change for me. I’m away at college so it is pretty difficult for me to eat so healthy, always having meals prepped, and most importantly affording to eat healthy. But every dime I spent on good healthy food was worth more than 10x the amount of junk and alcohol. After these pictures, I went out to dinner with my friend and ate some Oreos after (they are one of my weaknesses) but I am fully prepared to pick right back up where I left off tomorrow. All I can say is thank you for changing my life! I’m a fitness addict now!

Kate Kidulas

I started the challenge at 161 lbs and ended at 144 lbs. Seventeen pounds down and I feel fantastic! I can ALMOST see my abs. Getting there. I’ve also always been self-conscious about my arms which are the most stubborn part of my body and I can finally see them slimming down. This #Fitin5 Challenge has helped jump start my personal challenge of losing the pregnancy weight. I wanted to quit so many times in the last 5 weeks because I was so exhausted from my “mom duties” plus having a full time 9-5 kind of job. But what people don’t see from these pictures is the mental resilience and newfound discipline I gained while participating in this challenge. I’m determined more than ever to continue on with this fitness journey and #Fitin5 provided me with some of the basic tools I’ll need for success. This is only the beginning for me and there’s only one option for me and that is to keep moving forward. Thank you Paige Hathaway for the opportunity to do the #Fitin5 Challenge! It meant a lot to me that I got through all 5 weeks!

Thank you for everything Paige. I have never felt better and I actually plan to continue to lift and see how much more I can shape my body. I’ve always struggled with putting on muscle and I’m shocked with how I was able to progress and gain in 5 weeks. Looking forward to seeing what another 5-10 weeks of lifting and eating well can do for my body.


Didra Rodriguez

Before I started being serious about my fitness journey, I always doubted myself of being capable of getting fit. Often felt negative about my body and self image overall. This challenge proved me that I do have the willpower to say not to junk foods or sweets… and not only say no for 3 days, to say no for weeks! Having this knowledge makes me feel invincible! What I decide its what will happen. That is what I got from doing this… discipline.

Gissel Arredond

I hope this email finds you in well! I just wanted to thank you for your program. In all honesty, I’m obsessed with the regimen and now that my body is losing fat so much quicker.. the results I’m seeing are amazing! This is exactly what I was looking for, after half a year of being so stagnant this has come to be such a relief! I thought I was never going to get where I wanted to be, and you’ve made me believe once again that it is possible!

Jesse Bachrach

Taya Yager

I wanted to let you how grateful I am for all of your help! Honestly I’ve been struggling with my weight the past couple of years and it felt like nothing I tried would work. I actually started to feel like my body was incapable of losing weight and I would be uncomfortable in my own skin forever. You seriously are such a blessing and I can’t express how thankful I am for you!! I’ve lost a total of 15 pounds on your program and couldn’t be happier 🙂 I’ve also gained back my confidence which is even better! You helped me re discover the willpower I once had and you are a constant motivator for me. Thanks to you I now have the tools moving forward to continue this healthy lifestyle and keep bettering myself day by day. You’ve helped me get my life back so from the bottom of my heart I want to say thank you thank you THANK YOU!!!!

You are truly a wonderful person and extremely motivational. The support you have given me throughout this challenge is greatly appreciated and helped me to keep pushing.

Thank u for this wonderful challenge to help guide me in the right direction!! You truly are an inspiration Paige! You motivate on so many levels…thank you for sharing you everyday life, your own struggles to get where you are and your achievements!.. I’ve seen results since the beginning of this challenge, have gotten stronger and now know what it is I should be consuming to help with it thanks to this awesome challenge !!

Catherine Cervantes

I wanted to thank you very much for your support, advice and the work done with the diet and workout program… Anyway, thanks to this challenge, I know now I am capable, I can change my body and the mind is stronger than the hard workout. And this will be my first victory. Even after these 5 weeks, I will keep following your plans, use your recipes and videos to go further. I have learnt what a day should look like in terms of meal preparation, quantity and frequency. Thank you so much! You are an inspiration to me. Thank you!

Amanda Cascadden

This challenge has taught me SO much about living healthy, eating healthy, and taking care of my body. I have learned so much about muscles, nutrition, workouts, and more! I started very tired and annoyed at anything, the workouts, the diet, and events. I hated going out and not being able to eat everything and drink. Now, after 5 weeks, I can’t wait to go out and enjoy life, while still taking good care of my body. I understand more what my body actually needs, and what it WANTS. And, I am a LOT better at not giving into my body’s wants. During this challenge, I pushed myself to do the workouts when my body (and mind) really did NOT want to. Now that it is complete, I realize that not giving up when things get tough is a valuable lesson that I’ve learned. Life is not easy, and if you want something bad enough, you simply have to put in the work. Thank you Paige for helping me revolutionize my life!

Amy Prause

Thank you so much for this challenge! It has been awesome and really opened my eyes to a whole new world! I’m excited to continue my fitness journey even after the challenge. I’ve seen such great results and can’t wait to see what else I can accomplish with all the goals I’m going to set!
More about me.. I’m a restaurant manager and currently am working ALOT, so sometimes it’s hard to get in the gym, but I’m making it work. When there’s a will, there’s a way. I used to model when I was younger but since I’ve put on weight I stopped. My goal was to get that body back with this challenge. I know I’ll never have the same body I had as a teenager but I’m pretty close now and that’s all thanks to the challenge! I have a twin sister I don’t get to see as much as I’d like and one thing we both look forward to doing now is working out together when we can! She has been the one to push me when I wanted to give up. Shout out to Emily!! Love you! 🙂 I’ve lost 14 pounds if fat, now I want to gain a some muscle! Can’t wait to see myself in a year!
Thanks for everything Paige!

Drew Fox

I wanted to say thank you for this opportunity and for helping me. When the cancer hit back in February…. When I had two surgeries back to back… When my body couldn’t catch up and fight off what I needed to…. When I had hit a wall of frustration and a point in which I wanted to give up… Your challenge helped save me and get me back to a good mental state and physical well being. I started this at 197 lbs and have got down to 180 lbs. I’m not sure where I started with body fat but I’m assuming about 20%. Today I checked and it’s below 13%. Doctors told me it would be extremely difficult to get back to where I was and I thought it would be impossible but you helped me do it! I’ve learned a ton about new ways of lifting and different ideas and ways for dieting plans/eating healthy. All of this happened because of you and I greatly appreciate it. Only 5 lbs more and getting back to below 10% body fat and I’m back to where I belong and started. I now know cancer ain’t got nothin on me! ?thanks again!

Carolina Olinger

I absolutely LOVED the challenge. My body changed so much in only 5 weeks. I have never been happier with how my body looks. For me, this challenge was about challenging myself and stepping up to the next level, since up until then, I had been doing everything on my own. I needed guidance, and your guidance just sped up my body transformation so quickly. I also receive a lot of compliments (even from my bf who is a tough judge) and everyone at work knows about the challenge. Haha. Thank you so much!!!

Cassie West

Thank you so much for helping me on the start of my fitness journey and definitely changing my life around! I am definitely going to keep continuing this program to have the best body possible! I’ve lost 18.4lbs so far because of this program and couldn’t be any happier!! I am only a few pounds from my high school weight! I started his program at 193.6lbs and am currently down to 175.2lbs!! I am so proud and so very happy! I can’t thank you enough!! 🙂 🙂

Danielle De Long

I have to say this challenge has changed me in so many ways. First off my confidence has been boosted on so many levels. Physically how I have changed and second mentally that I got threw one of the hardest and most rewarding experiences. The amount of information that Paige gives you threw out the challenge and how she is actually there training you threw it is just amazing. Also I have truly learned what my body likes and doesn’t like. Learning to weigh out my food has become a healthy habit of mine all because of this challenge! Thank you Paige!!!

Carlee J

Thank you so much for everything you have done!!! Yesterday marked two years with a fake hip!! I was struggling with my self confidence because of my huge scar but now my new body sure does help with that!!

Catherine Sutter

​Hi Paige,
I feel great. I have never thought that i could loose 6.6 kg in 35 day. I’m really happy.
Thank you for all.​

Jeanine Bugalski​​

Thank you so much. I’ve gotten so many compliments especially in the last week!
This challenge was a blast…I’m sure I’ll do another in the future.

Emalea Hudgens

I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity of doing this. I really have made amazing progress and I am so excited to continue this lifestyle.

Jose Martinez

Thank you so much for everything Paige, you really showed me how to eat better and teaching me that it is possible to lean out!!

Christos Kantzavelos

My name is Christos Kantzavelos. I reside in South Florida. I am a manager at a restaurant, and also do some property management. As you can imagine, I have a pretty time demanding schedule that doesn’t allow me much free time. I work 65-70 hours a week, every week. I knew that signing up for the “Fit in 5 Week” challenge would be difficult to take on, but I needed something to really get me in shape! I would say that I am far more self-disciplined now in regards to my diet, and making sure I make at least 45 minutes available to break a sweat everyday. I can proudly say that I have stopped snacking on unhealthy foods, and drinking. I found that in doing so, I sleep much better through the night, and have much better concentration throughout the day. I have far more energy, and live a much more positive lifestyle overall. I also found out first-hand how meal prep can cut down on your monthly spending drastically. Not only did I start to live a newer, healthier lifestyle, I was also saving money and thinking more positively. I was amazed to see my entire outlook change.
Overall, I would say that I am vehemently satisfied with my results. I couldn’t be happier that I did it. I’m very proud of my accomplishments, and I am looking forward to continuing to live this new lifestyle!
Thank you for pushing me.

Darryl Anderson

first off I just wanted to say thank you for putting this challenge. I can only imagine how much time and effort it took to put all this together! Starting this challenge I didn’t know how it would go. The hardest part for me in all this along with the food, was the fact that I work 12am-9am tues-sat. So every day i would come home and head straight to the gym. Sometimes i would sleep wake up eat then go. That first week was truly a test because, I had never followed a strict diet like that before. I know one of the first things I did was get my question ready for you on Tuesday. When you responded with zero snacking I was like noooooo. I was seriously thinking about abandoning the meal plan. However I knew what was at stake and I told myself “if I’m in this I’m doing everything Paige tells me to do.” After that first day it was a grind each and every day but it was a grind I enjoyed because I knew there was others out there working just as hard. I hate to lose and be out worked. That’s the type of person I’ve been all my life. Especially when I was involved with my college sports. I played basketball and soccer for RIT in upstate New York. I’m from San Diego but went to school out there for sports! I got my degree in criminal justice. I would love to keep giving you more insight of who I am but I know you told me a short paragraph. This challenge has helped in a way that now I know what it takes to reach a fitness goal. For so long i thought i knew, but it wasn’t until i followed this plan and started to see results where i really found out. I will 100% take this knowledge you have given me and use it everyday! I never want to go back how i was. I want to get better & better everyday and who knows, maybe strive go be apart of a fitness team !! After this challenge i can really see myself pursing that! Thank you once again Paige you truly are the best!

Jesasica Sambuco

I’ve never been a skinny girl. I’ve always had a belly, that I’ve gotten tire me of sucking in, and a bootaay that I never want to get rid of! I’ve always played sports when I was younger (field hockey, softball) and since college I’ve tried to make gym a regular routine but it just wasn’t working on my own. I could maintain my weight but nothing drastic. I’ve always been a yo-yo dieter, trying no carbs or low carbs or the south beach, or keto, anything there is I’ve probably tried it. I get vey bored with diets bc it ends up being the same thing over and over. I need variety and I looooove food. My husband and I love to cook, try new things and new foods. When I saw this program I was a little skeptical bc there were some great transformations but as you look into the people they were previously a fitness model or model in general, or already in shape and needed to lean out, or guys who were already cut. I don’t consider my self out of shape but Like I said. I’ve never been “skinny” or “fat skinny” I just want to feel comfortable! I was very happy with this program. I looked at it as “I could do anything for a week”. The hardest meal plan was only 1 week. After that I tried to get creative without overdoing it. Could I have been a lot more strict? Yes! But I know myself and I would have probably quit it before it was over. I am happy with what I achieved. would I have liked more of a change in my body? 100%! But what I did get is pretty awesome to me. I don’t have abs and I don’t have diesel cut arms like some of the other girls, but
I lost a lot of “rolls and pudge” and I love it.

Kaitlin DeMartin/strong>

After 5 weeks of a lot of hard work and discipline I didn’t even know I had, i am 18 lbs down!!

Current weight is 178. I can see a huge difference in my body, especially my midsection and my face.  I’m 13 lbs away from my goal weight and I think at this rate, it’s gonna be a cake walk, thanks to this challenge (obviously no cake involved haha)!

Thank you so so so much for everything!!  I gained 35 lbs over 2 years due to a lot of unfortunate circumstances.  This challenge has gotten me back on track to be me again and I can’t thank you enough. I feel confident, my pants are buttoning again. I started dating again. I’m going to turn 30 in less than 2 weeks and I’m feeling great! Thank you, sincerely!!

Ps Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect with this challenge. I see so many lose-weight-fast gimmicks, and I’m pretty sure a ton of the photos are photoshopped. The pics from your last challenge were so amazing and I figured even if I lost 5 lbs I’d be happy. Your challenge is THE REAL DEAL!  You’re freaking awesome, Paige!!

Emily Jackson

​I learned so much and feel great after this challenge!  I lost 8 lbs!!! I had friends compliment me this weekend about how good I am looking!  Thank you so much for everything!

Eugenio Pacileo​​

Hi Paige, thank for this challenge. It was tough! I learnt a lot from it, and I’ve lost weight, but maintained my muscle tone. I’m happy with my results, and proud of myself for doing it, and following through with it.

Julia Petro

Your energy gave me motivation, and I am so happy I was part of this challenge. I will continue to thrive to be better each day.
Rock on!
Lots of love

Ericka Matheny

I can see a huge difference in myself. I pay closer attention to what I eat now. Giving up sweets was so hard, especially with kids haha Anyways, I don’t know if you’re able to see the difference I see but I’m happier and feel healthier. I know I still have a week to go and even know taking off my sports bra HURTS SO BAD, from being sore, I’m loving it!

Dorothy Garcia

I just want to say, Thank you. This challenge really pushed me to strive for a better version of myself. I never thought I could transform my body back to my pre pregnancy weight. I seriously made every excuse in the book before this challenge. In fact, with this challenge I surpassed my goal weight and I feel even better than I did before I had my daughter. I’m now at a healthy 128 lbs, way below my pre pregnancy weight.  I have my scars and stretch marks, but this challenge has given me a confidence I never had before. Thank you for the meal plans and workout routines.

Gisela Leal

I really enjoyed this challenge because it made me more strict on what I eat, made me focus alot more on the gym, step it up in cardio, and get into the habit of meal preping :D! Lost 10 pounds during this challenge and im just 5lbs away from my weight goal!! So im definitely going to keep going and pushing myself futher! So i just wanted to thank you for having this challenge and being an inspiration for me!!
Thank you!!

Emily Rath

I gained weight while living in Italy, and then working at a brewery in Colorado so I had ten pounds I just could not seem to get off, even though I was working out.  Your challenge helped me realize what and how much food my body actually needs, and I had incredible sustained energy the whole time.  My sugar cravings disappeared and I always felt incredibly satisfied.  The workouts were challenging but fun because I was progressing quickly so  it really changed my life.  I’m running again, doing yoga again, and eating in a way that makes me feel and look amazing. Thank you so so much for having this challenge and I look forward to doing more!

Donna Weidow

Very happy with my results!!!  I lost 1 inch on my waist, 1 inch on my belly, my calves are 1/2 inch bigger, WHICH MAKES ME SO HAPPY!!!!!! My chest 1/2 inch bigger , legs are 1/2 inch smaller , my arms 1/2 inch bigger and my bootyyyyyy, well it just got the best booty lift!!!! The scale shows that I am 4 pounds heavier I’m blaming it on my new booty!  Thank you Paige, this last 5 weeks have been INTENSE!

Heather Rooker

I want to thank you so much for working with me and playing a big hand in the confidence boost in experiencing! This has been amazing! 
While I only lost 2 pounds, I lost so many inches, and I love the way I look and feel!  I  will be back for more though. You’ve been more helpful than anyone that’s tried to help me this far.
Thank you again!

Ashley Abate​​

I am finally done with the Fit in 5 Challenge!!!! I am SO thankful to you and your team for all of the help to transform my body in only five weeks. I’m in complete shock to be honest. I am so much more confident, I have my head held high wherever I go….I even have people coming up and asking me what my diet and gym routine is! I don’t feel gross wearing shorts anymore, I don’t feel bad wearing a bikini anywhere, this is seriously so amazing. I pushed myself to the limit with this challenge, I got so much stronger and I can 100% say I gave it my all. My before and after pictures just make me have a permanent smile on my face, it’s incredible!
Thank you so much again, I can’t express how much this challenge changed every aspect of my life for the better. It’s a new Ashley 🙂 the best version of myself I have ever been.
THANK YOU! Times a million

Jesse Cooney

Omg Paige! I just want to thank you for such an incredible experience! This challenge has blown my expectations and has given me the belief and confidence knowing that anything is possible! i have trained weights at the gym for years now but my eating has always let me down and cardio was non existent! But once you combine all three and change your mindset…. Wow!!
I have officially lost 22 pounds in 5 weeks going from 215.6lbs to 193.5lbs and after a body scan I found out that 24 pounds of fat was shredded off me as I went from 28.6% body fat to 19.8%! And I actually managed to gain around 2 pounds of muscle too 🙂
the training was tough but with new abundance of energy it was great and the food variety was huge and well Lets just say I was never hungry that’s for sure!!
To say I highly recommend this challenge would be an understatement and if anyone is looking to  not only change their physique but also their way of thinking then Paige Hathaway is your girl!!
