About Sporty Girls:
In 2006, local radio personality Rashan Ali founded Sporty Girls Inc. in Atlanta, Georgia to provide young minority girls the opportunity to participate in non-traditional sports – those not traditionally offered in metro Atlanta public schools. A lifelong competitive swimmer and recipient of a four-year swimming scholarship at Florida A & M University, Rashan knew that one day she would want that same opportunity for other girls like her. Not only did she want young girls to swim, but also learn to play, soccer, golf, lacrosse and tennis. Through Sporty Girls, she has been afforded the opportunity to introduce young minority girls to an unconventional way to participate in non-traditional sports.



Making fitness fun since 2011 // PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT founder, Aeshia DeVore Branch, grew tired of the alarming obesity rates plaguing youth and set out to create a highly engaging, socially driven media platform that encourages girls to “make fitness fun” and “sweat with purpose”. Our fitness parties, digital content and inspiring apparel form a “Sweat Sisterhood” uniting women to raise awareness for childhood obesity and give back to under served communities. We’ve been featured on ABC, BET, and Essence as the “fitness destination for girls”, which we think sums us up! Want to join the PGS "Dream Team"?
