What does PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT mean to you?
A PRETTY GIRL is bold and brilliant. She's confident in herself and dreams big. She lives life on her own terms and appreciates the mistakes she's made, Knowing they will only prepare her for the future. But when pretty girls SWEAT, they believe in healthy living! They believe in longevity! They believe in running and completing a 5K at 60-years -old! They believe the body is a temple! PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT encourages all the beautiful girls in the world to take care of themselves! PGS makes fitness fun and it encourages us to sweat as a unit, which is amazing. I appreciate the unity PGS brings.
