Apply to be an aSweatLife Ambassador – The 2022 Application is Live!
Being an Ambassador means you’re raising your hand to be involved with a community that creates opportunities for you to make friends, focus on your personal wellbeing, and support others along the way. In the past year, we’ve seen Ambassadors pivot and accomplish big and small goals; we’ve seen Ambassadors express their genuine thoughts to build up humanity; and we’ve seen how communities can rally to help one another. It’s a beautiful thing! From our own experiences and what we’ve heard from current Ambassadors, the aSweatLife Ambassadorship provides a lot of happiness in a world where we could all use that extra bit of light to brighten up our days.
If any of this sounds like something you’re even a little bit curious about, click the button below to start your application, and we’ll be welcoming a new class of friends in early September.
What is the commitment?
- You are down to make new friends.
- You are ready to set goals (big or small and can be totally in your own way).
- You agree to pay a membership fee of $15 each month or a discounted annual fee of $150. Remember, the Ambassadorship gives you unlimited access to exclusive in-person and digital experiences – tools to help you live a happy and connected life, swag, Ambassador-only partner experiences, and much, much more.
Unique to the aSweatLife Ambassadorship:
A special welcoming event to get to know current and new Ambassadors typically involving a fan-favorite workout and motivational talks to get you amped for the year ahead. Did we mention aSweatLife swag will be given out ? You'll be able to represent, no matter where you are in the world.
#BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goals) will become your favorite hashtag as you dream up big goals and sketch out the steps you’ll take to get there.
Early Access and Discounts
You’ll have first access to #Sweatworking and other aSweatLife events. You’ll also get surprised with studio and digital fitness partner deals every month that can’t be beat.
As an aSweatLife Ambassador you'll receive access to products and services we love through giveaways, care packages, and ongoing discounts. We've given out sweets, snacks, nutrition, recovery tools, activewear, equipment and more.

What is the story of the aSweatLife Ambassadorship?
The sixth year of bringing on enthusiastic aSweatLife Ambassadors is upon us. Since the end of 2016, aSweatLife has grown a community of motivated individuals that are passionate about trying new things, their wellbeing, and making friends. Every year the program evolves, but the pillars of community and helping each other achieve our goals remain the same.
For many of us, it’s been a year of rethinking friendship. We managed long-distance relationships with pals who moved away during quarantine, we learned the art of a Zoom happy hour, and we wondered how that one girl we always saw at 7am Pilates was doing.
Fast forward to now. While you’ve slowly been relearning the art of conversation (conversation that’s not with your puppy or your plants, that is), you might also be craving a few new friendships to make your life a little brighter—or to fill in a few of the gaps the past year left open.
We only ask two things of our Ambassadors: that you’re down to make friends, and that you’re ready to get after a big goal. Outside of that, our ambassadors are totally unique – and that’s what makes this community so, so special. They’re from different places, they have different career paths, they’re different ages, they love who they love, and they choose to move their bodies in all sorts of different ways.
What can you expect?
While the Ambassadorship is something you’ll benefit from in your daily life, there are a few major events that we mark our calendars for every single year, as well as recurring monthly events.
Workshops: Every month, we bring the Ambassadors together – in person or through a digital experience – to learn something new that will help you live your healthiest, happiest, most productive life. The topics are always diverse. In the past, we’ve met over mindful eating, design thinking, and happiness. We’ve hosted leadership, public speaking, and meal prep workshops. We’ve had sound meditations, mobility seminars, and panel discussions. All workshops are designed around trying something new while getting after your BHAGS!
Workouts: We’ve created a few different ways you get to work out that are unique to the Ambassadorship:
- Studio of the Month: Every month, we partner with a best-in-class studio to give you access to classes and trainers you might not have heard of otherwise. These are workouts that only gym and studio members have access to regularly, but as Ambassadors, you’ll have rotating access for a month at a time. This is a great way to try something new or revisit a favorite studio.
- #WannaWorkout: Accountability is key! Through our Slack and private Facebook group, Ambassadors can connect to pair up or create groups to schedule workouts together.
Uplifting Network: You’ll be a part of a digital network of connections and resources of help among all Ambassadors nationwide through a closed Facebook group and Slack channel. Here you’ll find a pool of people who are ready and excited to help you get answers to whatever questions you have – from “where can I renew my CPR credentials online” to “does anyone have a promo code for the Outdoor Voices exercise dress” to “I just quit my job and I’m not sure what I want to do next, anyone want to get a cup of coffee?”
Okay, I am in! What else do I need to know?
How long do I have to apply? The application is available now for the 2022 Ambassadorship. It will be live until August 31st at 11:59 pm CDT.
When will I find out if I’m in? We spend hours pouring over these applications and we’ll do our best to contact you by September 7th to let you know if your application has been accepted. If we’re delayed, we’ll let you know. From there, get ready for a journey together full of digital connection, in-person meet-ups (when possible), workshops and workouts, and – we hope – new friends for life.
Is there a cost? There’s a monthly fee of $15, or you can get two months free by paying $150 for a full year of membership.
Ambassador Scholarships: We’re confident that this Ambassadorship program will bring way more than $15/month value to your life, but we’re also aware of the impact of COVID-19. To that end, we want to help those impacted by unemployment, reduced income, and anyone else that could really use the Ambassadorship but doesn’t have the means to pay the monthly fee. To encourage EVERYONE to apply, we’re offering at least 25 scholarships to newly accepted Ambassadors on a first come, first served basis.
Do I need to reapply if I am already an ambassador? Nope! Once you apply and are accepted you are an ambassador for life. 🙂 No need to reapply.
Is this ambassadorship only in Chicago? Nope! The ambassadorship was started and has grown in Chicago, but there are Ambassadors all over the country, especially in cities like LA, NYC, Columbus, Denver and Dallas; they host IRL experiences as well. Whether you live in Chicago – aSweatLife’s home city – or anywhere else in the U.S., we’d love to have you join the 2022 Ambassador program!
Do I need an Instagram Account to be an Ambassador? Nope! Although it is a tool we use a lot to stay connected, you do not need to be on social media to apply to become an Ambassador.
