AKT, Anna Kaiser Technique, a dance-based cardio fitness and wellness brand fueled by positivity and a combination of personal training and movement-based technique, has launched in Dallas-Fort Worth - in fact, the new studio in Plano is the first AKT studio to open in the state of Texas. The NYC-based fitness craze is revered by celebrities, including Shakira’s famous Superbowl body that broke the internet last February and Kelly Ripa’s famous 6-pack.

Founded by Celebrity Trainer Anna Kaiser, AKT is a unique combination of toning, interval, circuit, and dance-based workouts with new original content created every three weeks - so even the ultimate fitness fanatic won’t get bored. And now, North Texans have access to the same workout as the celebrities, so it’s time to shake it like Shakira in an inclusive environment where everyone’s victories are celebrated, all skill levels are welcome, and health is the top priority, especially during these unprecedented times. AKT is going above and beyond when it comes to the CDC’s recommendations for preventing the spread of germs and ensuring each member has a safe workout.

With the pillars of badassery, rhythm, community, passion, and results, the celeb secret is revealed on how to achieve rockin’ bods while still having fun during a workout. AKT empowers individuals to become stronger in body, mind, and community and have fun doing it. AKT has recruited some of the region’s top fitness gurus and talent to become Texas’ first AKT trainers and usher in this new era of fitness to Texas - including professional dancers from some of Texas’ top professional sports teams.

“North Texans are passionate about fitness, and we’re so excited to introduce them to AKT - a results-driven, positive, and fun fitness method that has been revolutionizing workouts for thousands from coast to coast,” said Serena Cole, Area Developer, who has brought this concept to the area along with her daughter Barrett Cole. “We are confident North Texans will quickly feel the rhythm and discover the amazing benefits of the AKT method for themselves, while staying safe and healthy.”

In advance of the opening, AKT has employed robust, strict cleaning regimens to ensure a safe experience for all clients. The studio received a MicroShield 360 treatment, an EPA registered and FDA approved coating system that provides continual protection from 90+ harmful pathogens and the studio is fogged with Aseptic Plus Hospital Grade disinfectant between each class. All participants in a reduced class size environment maintain a minimum of 6-feet distance between one another throughout the class, to ensure a contactless experience in the studio. Masks are worn upon entry, exiting, and while in the studio when not participating in a workout.
