CHAARG [CHANGING HEALTH, ATTITUDES,
+ ACTIONS TO RECREATE GIRLS]
CHAARG aims to ignite a passion in college-aged girls for health + fitness. Too many college girls rely solely on an elliptical. CHAARG liberates girls from the elliptical + shows them that fitness can [+ SHOULD] be fun! Since every girl has a different preference of what fun is, we create opportunities for our CHAARG girls to “find their fit.” We do this by partnering with local studios once a week to lead a workout, whether it be CrossFit, Pure Barre, or salsa dancing — and everything in between.
Once a girl joins CHAARG, she is welcomed into a supportive + empowering community of 5,000+ girls! When you workout, you feel good — but, when you surround yourself with people to support you, you feel even better. CHAARG combines good friends + a good workout to keep every girl feeling her happiest + healthiest self. Currently at 37 universities — with a “Virtual Chapter” for girls who do not have a CHAARG Chapter at their university yet — the movement is just getting started.
Elisabeth Tavierne [CHAARG Founder] — “My goal is to bring CHAARG to every university in the United States — if not the world. Ultimately though, my mission is to empower every CHAARG girl to be the best version of herself. I truly hope that all of our members find their passion for health + fitness — whatever that means to them. While CHAARG focuses a lot on fitness, living a healthy life is so much more than the physical aspect. I hope all of our members grow to embrace a healthy + happy lifestyle. I hope that they find a supportive + encouraging community + that they meet not only workout buddies, but lifelong friends.”
CHAARG NATIONAL TEAM
Raised in Chicago, Elisabeth Tavierne has the personality + accent to prove it. The city lover’s charisma comes from a mix of drive, friendliness, + an easy-going nature, with a coffee [black!] in hand. Attending The Ohio State University originally on a swimming scholarship, Elisabeth’s love for fitness did not stop there. She started CHAARG in hopes to inspire fellow Buckeyes to find their passion in fitness. She has since expanded CHAARG so that college girls everywhere can join in the movement of embracing a happy + healthy lifestyle. Elisabeth is also incredibly passionate about traveling the world, enjoying coffee with close friends, + adding Sriracha to anything + everything. // ISSA Certified Personal Trainer

Having been an avid runner for 10+ years, her passion for health + fitness has only grown since attending University of Cincinnati. While at UC, she noticed something missing from her workout routines, + when she learned about CHAARG at The Ohio State University, she knew she had found what she had been missing! Sarah was the first Ambassador to expand CHAARG from OSU, + has since taken on a larger role on Team CHAARG as the Chapter Trainer. Sarah also enjoys exploring new restaurants, as well as new places to buy FitGear [+ shoes!]. // ISSA Certified Personal Trainer
