More than anything, CHAARG is about community. By being a CHAARG member, you not only have a huge network of positive-minded girls, but you also are able to cultivate quality, one-on-one friendships. More specifically, #BoltBabes are there for you when you need an extra boost of motivation, an inspirational quote when you’re feeling down, or words of encouragement during those last few sets. #BoltBabes are the ultimate accountability buds + will elevate your sweat sesh to the next level —
1] POSITIVE VIBES
Okay, we all can’t be rays of sunshine 24//7 ; ) Having a #BoltBabe will remind you of the positives in life when you’re feeling down or discouraged after a rough day when you’re struggling to get to the gym. These girls will remind you of your *why* — having fun! Even when you’re feeling down, others may be radiating positive vibes, which are contagious!
If the weather is gloomy, if you feel like you have an overwhelming workload, or if you simply don’t feel like working out one day, your #BoltBabe is there to remind you that you set a goal to conquer the #CHAARGFitPlan — there’s no backing out now! Of course, if you’re feeling sick or super sore, a true #BoltBabe should trust you know your limits. But, you don’t want to disappoint your #BoltBabe by missing a workout + vice versa! Keep each other accountable to your #FitGoals because you know you’re always happier after a solid sweat sesh.
3] TEAM WORK
Team work makes the dream werk, bebe ; ) Even if it’s simply virtual, that feeling of *we’re in this together* is incomparable. Is your booty on fiyaaaa after Wednesday’s workout? Most likely, so is your #BoltBabe’s! You can learn lots from your bud — trade foam rolling tips + stretches so you can both feel ready to go for the next workout.
Your #BoltBabe may be at the same university or in the same city as you, or they may be all the way across the country. You may have met them before, or you may not have. Either way, seeing new friends crush their goals is incredibly inspiring. If you’re cheering on your #BoltBabe in her first half marathon or supporting her through her Whole30 challenge, you will likely be inspired to set your own #FitGoals + crush them too!
Strong women empower other strong women — your #BoltBabes are a valuable asset that can completely improve your fitness journey. Text them with support before//during//after your sweat seshes, whenever you need motivation, whenever you’re feeling down, or whenever you simply need a friend. ++ of course, be there to return the favor + be a fab #BoltBabe yourself ; )
