Podcast 39:18 FitLabPGH Highlighting Our First 100 Guests



A few weeks ago FitLabPGH released our 100 episode.  We offered the usual social media posts and thanks to guests and listeners alike…but then we realized we wanted to do more. Each guest we have interviewed has left a unique memory.  The podcast is the guests because they each have a story to tell.  Without the guests there would be no FitLabPGH.

This week we highlight our guests…so far…with many more to come.  Our longest podcast to date, where we reminisce with a memory about each interview.  It is a bit different, but we hope you enjoy it.

FitLabPGH thanks all of our podcast guests and listeners, for 100+ great episodes.  We are looking forward to the next 100 episodes!  Use the links below to access any of the podcast episodes you may have missed, or any interviews that you’d like to revisit!  If you have any suggestions for future guests, please e-mail us at fitlabpgh@gmail.com or contact us using the social media links at the bottom of the Show Notes.  If you like what you’ve heard on the FitLabPGH Podcast, please rate and review us on Apple Podcasts, or your favorite podcast player, and please share the podcast with your friends.

Podcast 37:18 Change The Game- Joanna Papada & Michelle Parolini



Change the Game (CTG) is a youth development program.  In their own words: In everything we do, we move, we give, we grow – it all starts with movement. We are always moving forward focused on becoming change agents in our community and country.

Change the Game believes that meaningful connections happen through purpose and intention and its methodology is built on creating a team of young adults and adult coaches who purposely spend sustained time together on weekends and school vacations.

Through a yearlong series of interactions that spans greater than 700 hours, the team of high school juniors and seniors and adult coaches comes together in community service, travel, networking and team building activities.  Such activities form the foundation upon which to build and reinforce CTG’s core values of commitment, respect and open communication.

For more information on Change the Game and their programming, go to: https://www.changethegamepitt.org/

We spoke with the Founders of Change the Game, Joanna Papada and Michelle Parolini.
