Meet the Ambassador


My name is Ellan + I am the Ambassador of Pitt’s CHAARG chapter. I am a junior studying Communication + Psychology. When I *stumbled* upon CHAARG my Freshman year, I was amazed to find such an amazing community of women who had the same mindset ++ goals as I did. My original intention when I joined CHAARG was to conquer the Freshman 15. Little did I know that joining CHAARG would introduce me to my best friends, an incredible support system, amazing experiences, ++ of course, guided me towards the healthy lifestyle that I longed for. CHAARG is so much more than just fitness — CHAARG works to promote mental health, confidence, empowerment ++ an overall healthy life. CHAARG has helped me to make my college experience everything I could have wanted + more. The CHAARG community will share in your victories, support you in your struggles, be your best friends + your biggest cheerleaders. It has helped me to find my happiness, my confidence, + my home — I hope it can do the same for you.

Here’s what #PITTCHAARG girls are saying…

Why did you join CHAARG?

To find a community that aligned with my values + promoted health and wellness in a sustainable manner! // Tori [tcancelfit]

Why should someone join CHAARG?

It’s the easiest way to make friends who have the same goals as you! Even if you’re new to fitness, there’s someone who also just joined! Or if you’ve been working out for a while, there are people like that in CHAARG too that will give you new workout ideas! I highly recommend joining! // Ava [Avas_inchaarg]

What is something you want to share about CHAARG?

CHAARG helped me to meet new people when I didn’t have many friends after transferring schools. I have met so many girls who I feel comfortable talking to + I absolutely love staying fit at the same time! // Nikki [nikkiray_inchaarg]
