This one is for the girls! Body by Buckner is inviting all girls aged 5-14 to their Girl Power Summer Jam event. Attendees can expect a special event celebrating the strength and power of girls through fitness, games, music and food. The girls will also be treated to swag items from event partner Athleta and lunch provided by LEON Restaurant.
The event will be led by Lauren Buckner. As a health and wellness educator, Buckner is the owner of Body by Buckner , a Washington, DC based boutique fitness company. Body by Buckner is known for customized, small group training. Lauren believes in training her clients from the “inside out”, focusing first on positive thinking and healthy habits and then creating customized workouts. As a former collegiate track and field sprinter and professional dancer, she fuses these fields to create high energetic dynamic workouts to low impact mat workouts with elements of cardio and yoga.
The event comes on the heels of Lauren's outreach program in Costa Rica where she is leading a similar girl empowerment event and Body by Buckner will serve as a featured partner for the 4th Annual Youth Conference presented by the Negro Improvement Association (UNIA). Locally Lauren is also known for lending her health and wellness expertise to organizations like WOW, Women of Washington Redskins, the Georgetown Improvement District and more.
