Stephen Buckner

Before arriving in Athens, Stephen Buckner graduated from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. In 2018, he decided to further his education at the University of Georgia. While enrolled at UGA, Stephen interned with UGA Olympic Sports and the Athens Orthopedic Clinic; served as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor for UGA Recreational Sports; and completed his Master of Science in Kinesiology with a concentration in Strength, Conditioning, and Fitness. He has also attained the rank of a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

Stephen initially joined Keppner Boxing & Fitness in June 2019, as the coach of the Simply Strength program. He has since become a coach for BootCamp, while also leading clients in private sessions. Much of his knowledge and experience as both a personal trainer and strength and conditioning coach are applied in helping Keppner Boxing & Fitness members become more well-rounded athletes. Stephen prioritizes improving health and fitness by helping members reduce their risk of injury; improve their aerobic conditioning; better their mobility and posture; and, of course, become stronger. Whenever Stephen is not coaching or training others, the former radio disc jockey and on-air producer is likely attending a concert or indulging in his massive music collection that includes more than 1200 vinyl records and CDs.
