BodyByBakari Inc. founders, Bakari Taylor (pictured left) and Andrew Nguyen of The O Agency, have developed a strong following in the Hampton, Richmond, and Washington D.C. areas by providing FREE Saturday boot camp sessions to young adults. Understanding that the cost for training is not cheap while the need for a fit lifestyle is imperative, BodyByBakari seeks to bring the same opportunities for free workouts to major cities along the East Coast this summer. Originally based in D.C., BodyByBakari will relocate to Richmond, VA this summer and continue to provide supporters with an opportunity to lead a healthy lifestyle without worrying about the cost.

The BodyByBakari team has also lauched a summer workout tour and will be traveling to a different city every Saturday to host a  free ‘No Excuses’ workout session. The tour is scheduled to hit the road to visit Charlotte, Atlanta, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and New Jersey so far and there are plans to extend the tour to include many other cities.

“We need the support of everyone and anyone to make this tour happen,” said Taylor, a fitness coach who is also certified as a Level One Olympic Weightlifting Sports Performance Coach. “We are doing this tour not only to raise awareness about the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle, but to show that exercising doesn’t have to be a chore; it can be fun for anyone who participates.”

BodyByBakari has started a campaign encouraging supporters to share information about the free fitness tour on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media platforms. There are also other ways to contribute including becoming part of the marketing, event planning, or production teams.
