Inside AKT: Where Shakira, Kelly Ripa, and SJP Sweat It Out
If you ever happen to walk past Anna Kaiser's newly opened studio in New York, and you just might run into Kelly Ripa, Shakira, or Sarah Jessica Parker. These are just some of Anna's high-profile clients who stop by the Upper East Side locale for personal training sessions.
You don't have to be famous to work out here, though. Anna offers plenty of classes to the public that still rely on her tried-and-true method of training. Classes start at US$35 a session, which still make them a bit out of reach for some, but the intimacy of each class makes it feel like a semi-private session. "The design of Studio AKT/NYC was based on Andy Warhol's Factory," says Anna. "I wanted to create an atmosphere that housed not only the electricity and passion of my team, but the comfort of home — a way to truly embody fitness as a community and as a lifestyle."
Curious to see where some of NYC's most famous citizens get their sweat on? Take this virtual tour that ends with an exclusive Anna Kaiser workout that you can do at home!
