I'm so excited to give you a peek inside Buffalo's newest and hottest fitness space — Buff & Flo at 4203 North Buffalo Road in Orchard Park.

They are celebrating their grand opening Saturday with Sweat for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. All proceeds from classes taken on that day will go to St. Jude, a cause that's near to all of the WYRK family.

Buff & Flo

I first learned about the work St. Jude does two years ago when I volunteered to answer phones at the first WYRK Country Cares For Kids Radiothon. Nearly all of the children treated at St. Jude have a disease currently under study and are eligible for the clinical trials conducted there, and their families never see a bill for medical treatment. I'm a mom of two boys, and while I'm grateful they have been healthy, I know that's not the case for many parents out there.

Buff & Flo almost has a spa-like feel. It's a gorgeous, peaceful space that's perfect for re-centering yourself with a yoga or barre class, including power yoga, candlelit yoga, a pound workout with drums and stretching yoga. You can take classes in either a hot or warmed room. I was speaking to the owner about their kids classes, too — kids get a yoga session and also get to make and take home a craft. (They have full class descriptions on their website here.)

Taking a class at Buff & Flo this Saturday is a great way to do something good for yourself, and to support an amazing organization like St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Class sign ups will be available on our website, and you can donate directly to St. Jude via events.stjude.org/buffandflo.
