Don’t stroll into an AKT studio anticipating a bouncy, clap-to-the-beat Jazzercise class. AKT, named for movie star health coach/mastermind Anna Kaiser, is a cardio-intensive and strengthening dance exercise outfitted with blood-pumping music, resistance bands and disco balls. I took a combo class that was half band work and half dance cardio. By the time Britney Spears’ “(You Drive Me) Crazy” hit the audio system on the finish of the forty-five-minute class, I used to be dripping in sweat and my physique felt like jello—in one of the best ways attainable.

The exercise model lauded by Kelly Ripa and Shakira simply opened a studio in Town Center. Lauren Cimpl, who runs the studio together with her husband, Anthony LaVita, hopes that individuals will welcome this area of interest exercise.

“I’d prefer to carry one thing new,” she says. “If this was to be somebody’s dwelling studio, even when it’s complimentary to different exercises, I believe that’s nice.
