Meet the Ambassador


My name is Joyce + I’m a Senior majoring in Psychology, hoping to go into the field of Physical Therapy in the future. I’m so excited that you are interested in joining our Chapter of CHAARG! CHAARG has played a huge role in my life at Vandy — initially by easing my transition into college by providing me with a supportive community, + now by constantly pushing me to live a healthier lifestyle [that is, focusing on my mental health as well as my physical health]. Our chapter is so special — I feel so lucky to be surrounded by so many STRONG women, + to get to sweat with them ++ learn about self-love together — it’s such an empowering journey! Not only that, but we are also lucky enough to get to explore the countless incredible fitness studios in the heart of Nashville, which is *such* a refreshing break from the stressors that school can bring. We can’t wait to sweat with you + show you what CHAARG is all about!

Here’s what #vandyCHAARG girls are saying…

Why did you join CHAARG?

I joined CHAARG because I always had a hard time reaching my full potential in workouts by myself. I found them boring [couldn’t get past the elliptical…], + something I certainly did not look forward to doing. I joined CHAARG hoping to find the *fun* in fitness, + learn about workouts other than cardio. // Nicolette [nicolette_inchaarg]

Why should someone join CHAARG?

It is an amazing way to stay active + healthy in college. The people you will meet are amazing + you might not meet them otherwise because it draws girls from across campus. It is also a super supportive community which is important to have in college. In addition it is a good way to meet people in the community around your school + get off campus ++ find fun workouts! // Rachel [rachelk_inchaarg]

What is something you want to share about CHAARG?

The weekly workouts have really introduced me to new types of workouts I now love! From hot yoga to cycling to barre! // Ivana [Ivanaa_inchaarg]
