So, what is CHAARG all about anyways — you may be thinking. We are a movement + we are on a mission. Read on ; )
WE ARE CHAARG + WE’RE ON A MISSION TO SHOW COLLEGE GIRLS EVERYWHERE THAT OWNING YOUR FITNESS IS OWNING YOUR LIFE. WE ARE LIBERATING GIRLS FROM THE ELLIPTICAL + PROVING THAT FITNESS CAN + SHOULD BE FUN. WE ARE LEADING THE MOVEMENT THAT IS IGNITING A PASSION IN WOMEN TO EMBRACE A HAPPY + HEALTHY LIFESTYLE. JOIN US + FIND YOUR FIT.
WE ARE CHAARG | Changing Health, Attitudes + Actions to Recreate Girls
+ WE’RE ON A MISSION | Since 2012
TO SHOW COLLEGE GIRLS EVERYWHERE | The heart + soul of CHAARG is the family of CHAARG Chapters, student organizations at the following nine universities – Indiana University, The Ohio State University, University of Cincinnati, University of Dayton, University of Maryland, University of Michigan, University of Pittsburgh, University of Toledo, + Xavier University.
THAT OWNING YOUR FITNESS IS OWNING YOUR LIFE | CHAARG is a lifestyle. You can be the girl who lifts weights, trains for a race, does Pure Barre + takes yoga, but still takes the time to let her hair down + put on a pair of heels. CHAARG girls are all about a BALANCED life + that is beautiful.
WE ARE LIBERATING GIRLS FROM THE ELLIPTICAL | We are changing the skewed mentality that many college girls have about fitness: the hope that spending hours on the elliptical will help young women lose weight.
+ PROVING THAT FITNESS CAN + SHOULD BE FUN | There are so many ways to work out that are fun + rewarding – and here at CHAARG, we show you. We will introduce you to a variety of workouts — some you have never even heard of + maybe even some that you will not like, but I promise you will have a good time + a good laugh with your CHAARG girls.
WE ARE LEADING THE MOVEMENT | What started as 90 girls at The Ohio State University, now has over 1000+ chapter members + many more virtual members. We are planning on expanding to 3-5 universities per semester + increasing our community by 1,000 members per year.
THAT IS IGNITING A PASSION IN WOMEN | We believe that if girls are passionate about fitness, they are much more likely to stick to a healthy lifestyle. Thus, we create opportunities for our members to find that passion in fitness – passion that they never knew existed – by introducing different forms of exercise each week that will ultimately lead every single member to find their niche.
TO EMBRACE A HAPPY | The CHAARG community aims to be a place filled with positive, motivating women who support one another in a balanced life, whatever that means to her. We know that it’s how our body feels that matters, not the size of our legs or the number on the scale.
+ HEALTHY LIFESTYLE | Living a healthy lifestyle is not just a physical status, but an everyday obligation to changing the body + mind in a positive way. We want women to not only become excited about fitness, but also to enjoy eating whole, nutritious foods + truly feel confident in one’s skin.
JOIN US + FIND YOUR FIT | The expansion of CHAARG chapters to universities nationwide + even globally [#chaarggoesglobal] is a vital aspect, but our core desire is to have every woman, regardless of age, join in a journey + become a part of the CHAARG community. So join us — and find your fit.
