PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT is growing fast. We are looking for game changers to join our #SweatSisterhood.
There are five core values that potential team captains should have.
1. Be passionate about health, fitness, friendship, and philanthropy.
From inception, PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT has had three simple equations:
Uniting + Empowering Girls Through Fitness = PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT
Fitness + Friendship = FUN
Get Fit + Give Back = SWEAT MAKES CENTS
It’s super important for girls at all fitness levels to make health a priority and support one another. Our mission is to unite women through a #SweatSisterhood, show the many faces of fitness, and change the ingrained, negative stereotypes that sweat holds.
2. Be innovative.
Our #SweatSquad must be creative, introduce new ideas, and be original.
3. Be humble.
No matter your economic background, title, age, education, or if your favorite team won a national championship last season there is no “I” in TEAM. We respect and value everyone’s opinions and work together to move beyond our previous successes.
4. Ability to inspire.
Through in-person and virtual support, we find creative and innovative ways to motivate ourselves and encourage this community.
5. Get ish done!
We thrive in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment and it is not easy. After the hard work is done, it’s all worth it when thousands of girls are inspired (and you had fun doing it).
Our team captains are the heart of National PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT and serve as the *presidents* of their PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT teams (aka Chapters - a student organization at universities). They are the leaders of the PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT take over on their campus. They host fun fitness parties weekly called SWEAT SHOWS, support campus ambassadors, broker partnerships with on-campus organizations and local fitness studios, and serve as a spokesperson for their college team in the media.

What is a PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT Team?
A PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT Team is a sweat sisterhood of fearless females who are passionate about health and fitness. These game changers are health leaders on campus and introduce their peers to non-traditional ways to sweat, male lifelong friends and have fun. It is a registered student organization at universities run entirely by female students. A typical size of a PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT Chapter during its first semester is 50 girls.
