Paige Hathaway in Workout Gear Flexes Bicep and is "Grateful"
Fitness model Paige Hathaway said goodbye to 2023 by posting highlights of her beautiful December spent with friends and family. Hathaway, 36, shared pictures of the holidays, including one great snap of herself posing in a white sports top and gray workout pants, flexing a bicep while using a resistance band. "December you were so good! #Grateful" she captioned the post. Hathaway's diet and exercise regimen is about as intense as you can imagine, but she makes it look fun (and very worth it). Read on to find out more.
Diet and Exercise
Hathaway loves to keep her workouts challenging. "I lift heavy with more compound movements 4-5 days a week and do HIIT 3-4 days a week on top of that," she tells Muscle & Fitness. "The sled push is my favorite. It's fun and works every muscle in your body! The 'man eater' is probably the toughest exercise I've done, and it delivers the fastest results. You do a plank, pushup, renegade row on both sides, then burpee to shoulder press. At the top, you take it all the way back down. It's absolutely exhausting. I keep my diet 80/20, mostly sticking to whole foods like seafood, beans, quinoa, couscous, sweet potatoes, veggies, and lots of nuts and nut butters. But I still enjoy foods that might not be as healthy 20% of the time."
Hathaway enjoys protein-packed snacks throughout the day. "I have about six meals a day consisting of three or four full meals and two or three snack meals," she tells The Thirty. "I typically snack on something like peanut butter banana wraps (tortilla, banana, and peanut butter), hummus and veggies, or homemade tzatziki sauce with Greek yogurt, or a protein shake with nut butter and fruit. If I'm craving something sweet, I make chia pudding by mixing 1/3 cup of white chia seeds, 1 1/2 cups of nut milk (I like almond or coconut), 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, and a scoop of protein powder."
Hathaway's go-to training is F45, which she says changed her life. "I work out at F45! F45 Training is a team-based, functional training facility that places a huge emphasis on the three key factors: motivation, innovation, and results," she tells The Thirty. "At F45 (the F stands for functional), no program is ever repeated, making every workout a unique experience. I work out at least five days a week consistently at F45. It's a completely different style of workout to any class you'll find out there; the principle is to maximize your output with the most efficient and effective workout possible. The Tabata/HIIT/interval style of training paired with functional movements continuously with "max on" periods (generally around 30 to 40 seconds) interspersed with rest periods (between 10 and 20 seconds) is what really makes me sweat and see phenomenal results!"
Hathaway doesn't eat red meat these days. "I've been pescetarian for the past six months," she tells Body + Soul. "I'm crazy about it, it absolutely changed my life and body and how I feel. I'm leaner, without so much inflammation. It's very doable. I haven't even craved meat, which being in the fitness world is incredible because meat is an everyday meal. I now get my protein from plants and fish. I wouldn't go back."
Deep Tissue Massage
Hathaway swears by chiropractor sessions and deep tissue massages for recovery. "I see a chiropractor on a weekly basis because good spine health is what keeps your body functioning properly!" she tells The Thirty. "I go in for some corrective scoliosis work paired with some spine rejuvenation. I also think it's very important for active people to get a deep tissue massage at least once a month. Massages decrease acute inflammation caused by overuse of muscles and are helpful in decreasing stiffness, pain, and inflammation."
