January's Goner of the Month! She is not only strong both physically and mentally, but also in character. She truly lives up to the definition of a Goner. Get to know more about
Number of years as a Goner: Somewhere Around 3 Years
Her frenemy exercise: Toe-Rows
What Paragon has readied her for in the real world: Hiking, running, and other outdoor adventuring; when I am not engulfed in nursing school. I also credit Paragon for providing me with the ability to perform safely and effectively as an EMT at Guardian medical transport, a professionI once thought I would never be physically or mentally strong enough to achieve.
"When I initially heard of Paragon I thought it sounded crazy, perhaps even unsafe! I now go religiously and often vocalize how the Paragon team has changed my life. Three years in and I do not recognize the person I was when I showed up to the first strength class. Ryan has worked with me and provided me with the tools to transform into a physically healthy and mentally strong individual. The strength and confidence I have gained by being a part of Paragon transcends the number of squat thrusts I can do; my experience at Paragon has provided we with the ability to successfully perform elsewhere in my life, whether it is rescuing an injured hiker on Mt. Humphrey’s or sitting through a nursing class. It is crazy to think that a fitness membership could deliver such an effect but I honestly believe that being a Goner has changed the trajectory of my life! I am happier, as well as fit and able! Thank you Ryan, Laurel and Betsy for all you do!!!"
