It seems like every month a new fitness franchise decides to set up shop in this sweet city of ours. From Rise Nation to Row House and Shred415 to StretchLab, there are so many boutique faves moving in on the Mile High. And now we’ve got another one headed our way. AKT, the dance fitness brand created by celebrity trainer Anna Kaiser will soon be working up a sweat in the heart of Cherry Creek.
Let’s start with the facts: when it comes to fitness, Anna Kaiser is the real deal. She’s trained the likes of Shakira, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kelly Ripa. She knows how to break a sweat and bust a move — all while channeling fun party vibes with loud music and a whole lot of energy. And that’s exactly what you can expect in an AKT class. The workout is designed to work the entire body in a fun and efficient way.
Not a dancer? No worries. All are welcome — no prior experience is needed. You’ll learn as you go, and modifications are offered for any level of athlete. Just be ready to work hard and have fun. The only requirement is an open mind.
But it’s more than just dance. AKT is all about the well-rounded body. After all, you need some serious glute strength to drop it low. That’s why they go beyond the dance beats with a lineup of classes meant to strengthen, stretch, and tone. Their series of HIIT classes use weights and resistance bands to balance and burn. The music, the programming, the infectious vibe — we promise you won’t be bored.
AKT is set to open its 2,000-square-foot space at 2445 E. 3rd Ave. in Cherry Creek this summer. Keep an eye out on their Instagram for pop-ups, previews, and pre-opening specials.
