// THE MOMENT //
Throughout my freshman year of college, I was constantly trying to *find my fit.* It was difficult for me to stay consistent because I wasn’t surrounded by others that felt the same way. The summer before my sophomore year, Paige Freund [previous ambassador] emailed me asking if I wanted to be on exec for something called CHAARG. I didn’t know Paige or what CHAARG was at the time. When you go to a small school, you start to recognize the regular gym-goers — we would always eye each other from afar, but have never met! I started researching and learning more about the group + knew this was definitely something that I want to be a part of. As an exec member for the first ever Butler CHAARG chapter, I was nervous. I wasn’t that confident in the gym + now I had to empower others? The moment I knew that CHAARG really was a life-changer was when I was completely comfortable teaching a small group, inviting others to work out with me in the *scary big weight zone* : ) ++ I was the one getting excited about workouts that I have never tried. I look back over these three years + can’t believe how far our Butler CHAARG chapter has come. Being in CHAARG has definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone, but I am such a better person because of it.

If you could work out with anyone dead or alive, what workout would you do + who would you work out with?
Probably be Heidi Powell. She is so strong, ++ she + her husband are such a power couple! We would do a high intensity workout together + I’m sure it will be a good one!
A song that gets me pumped to take on a #sweatsesh is… The Greatest by Sia

My passion is… helping others become their best self. I am still in the process of this, but I love helping others!
I am #inCHAARG because… I am always looking for new ways to workout + new friends to share them with. I love living a healthy + happy life with a community around me that believes the same.
