Give Back

Bodi Shak proprietor Antonio Coke has always believed that one of the best ways to inject change is through giving.
With that, he wanted to present Bodi Shak to neighborhoods that lacked the kinds of fitness experiences typically found in more "developed" communities. Desiring to take it a step further he created SHAKBACK.

SHAKBACK is a public charity dedicated to giving back and making a difference in the communities it dwells. Through donations, special events, and fundraisers SHAKBACK will provide contributions to three local institutions that provide services directly to people in need. Check them out below!
