Whether you’re brand new to CHAARG, a current member or hearing about us for the first time — we want to introduce ourselves + explain what it means to be a part of this community. ++ hopefully, before you finish reading — you’ll want to join our fam ; ).
CHAARG stands for Changing Health, Attitudes + Actions to Recreate Girls. On the surface, you may interpret us simply as a health + fitness organization. This is partially true, but being a part of the CHAARG community means far more than liberating girls from the elliptical — we are a team.
Every member of CHAARG is different, we welcome women of all backgrounds + experiences. We come together over a common goal: uplifting ourselves + those around us. At its core, CHAARG is a family — we’re here to make you laugh, to congratulate you, + most importantly — to remind you that you’re never in this alone.
CHAARGies support each other — through the highs + the lows. We show the world what we’re made of + we make a huge impact by doing so ; ). We encourage you to go after that FitGoal you’ve always wanted to accomplish — we’ll be there to cheer you on every step of the way ++ inspire you to believe that you CAN freakin’ do it! CHAARG will help you to discover what you’re capable of, motivate you to be more, + help you see the true beauty + strength inside you. Life is too short to dwell on negativity, so together — we #RadiatePositiveVibes + challenge each other to live not only each day, but each moment to the fullest.
Together, we celebrate all victories. Whether you finished your first mile or your 50th, the CHAARG community will congratulate you. CHAARG girls know that our FitGoals are a journey + that life’s too short not to celebrate every milestone along the way.
++ you know what is possibly the best part of CHAARG? Though each member of this community contributes something unique, it is our differences that bring us closer. We are stronger together + every CHAARG girl matters. You matter.
Ready to join our fam? Join the CHAARG Community here. We are currently at 24 universities — if you don’t see your chapter, join the VirtCHAARG Community [for post-grads ++ girls who do not have a CHAARG Chapter on their campus — yet!]. If you want to bring CHAARG to your campus, apply to become an Ambassador! We can’t wait to get to know you, sista.
