// THE MOMENT //
The moment you knew you wanted to start a CHAARG chapter at your university… After hearing about CHAARG from my friend Lauren, I was instantly hooked! [Thank you Lauren for showing me what CHAARG was all about!]. Of course I went home + looked at the website//blog posts right away ++ I was instantly OBSESSED. Once I read the CHAARG mission I knew I had to bring it to Ball State. I envisioned ending the stigma of women in the gym + empowering women to embrace a healthy + fit lifestyle that can easily be fun + achievable with a positive group of passionate women. What better way to do that then start the first CHAARG chapter at Ball State?!
My passion for health + fitness was ignited when…. My love for fitness has been around all throughout my life due to countless years of athletics. I was just your average student-athlete in high school but I loved being on the soccer field. Once I got to college I no longer had the discipline of high school sport ++ this meant relying on myself to get to the gym. I started to become more educated on workouts in and out of the gym + my late nights on netflix turned into watching food documentaries. I became more conscious as to what I was putting in my body + how a healthy lifestyle can positively impact your life. My love turned into a passion + now I live for a good sweat sesh.
// EAT //
Favorite Meal…. I live for salmon but I also love anything + everything food.
// SWEAT //
If you could work out with anyone dead or alive, what workout would you do + who would you work out with? I would totally do an exciting workout like Turbo Kick or Aerial yoga with Amy Schumer.
A song that gets me pumped to take on a #sweatsesh is… Dum Dee Dum by Keys n Krates
gives me so much energy to take on my workout!
// INSPIRE //
My passion is… Finding the greatness in the little things, expanding my knowledge, + wearing my heart on my sleeve. Live, Learn, + Love.
I am #inCHAARG because… Each + every one of you inspire + motivate me to find my fit every single day.
// LIVE //
