// THE MOMENT //
The moment I realized I wanted to join CHAARG was when I found a flyer on-campus. Since I am from Cincinnati, I knew about CHAARG for a while + I couldn’t wait to join at Auburn! I had found my love for fitness when I was a sophomore in college with weightlifting. It was so embarrassing at the time because I probably looked like I had no idea what I was doing, but I got better + really started to love it. I couldn’t imagine my life without a part of it being dedicated to fitness. I have found that it has provided so much more for me than a healthy body — a happier life.
CHAARG is everything that I could hope for. In joining CHAARG, I wanted to be able to find girls who have the same passion for fitness as me. I wanted to share what I had found in fitness + show girls a life full of love + happiness. After becoming a part of the community, I found just that in CHAARG. It amazes me how involved girls are on Instagram. There are so many days where I have found inspiration from looking at other girls being dedicated + working out, that I got my own butt off the couch + went to exercise myself. The motivation that CHAARG provides for me has given me the chance to take *CHAARG* of my own life. Being in CHAARG, has pushed me out of my comfortable zone + allowed me to be more confident in myself. I love being able to spread that passion to other girls and watch them grow into the person they want to be! I found my place #inCHAARG ++ I would not want to be anywhere else.

A song that gets me pumped to take on a #sweatsesh is… The Greatest by Sia
// INSPIRE //
My passion is… Fitness has helped me out of some tough times. Being able to take control of my body has shown me that I can take control of other parts of my life. Developing a healthy + active life for myself has allowed me to become the girl I’ve always wanted to be — a girl who doesn’t have as much fear as she used to or have as many doubts in herself as she used to.
My other passion is to share this with as many people as I can. I love watching other people succeed in their endeavors + if I can be a small part of helping them, sign me up!
I am #inCHAARG because… I love being able to help other girls meet their fitness goals + lead a happy, healthy life.
