DENVER (September 2019)– AKT, the popular boutique fitness studio developed by Celebrity trainer Anna Kaiser, will open their first Colorado location in Denver at 2445 E. 3rdStreet in Cherry Creek North. The new studio will be one of 25 AKT locations expected to open by the end of 2019 - including a second Denver location at Lot Twenty Eight in RiNo.
In 2013, dancer, choreographer, and certified fitness instructor, Anna Kaiser, opened her first AKT studio on the Upper East Side of Manhattan after successfully introducing her privately trained clients to the revolutionary cardio-based dance workout. She has since become the preferred trainer for high-profile clientele, including LIVE with Kelly & Ryan host, Kelly Ripa as well as international singing sensation, Shakira.
Rooted in functional training that allows the body to move in a dynamic way, each AKT studio class is between 45-60 minutes in duration and incorporates a full spectrum of fitness elements from dance to strength training and plyometrics. With four unique class modalities – dance, bands, tone and circuit, AKT is a workout for all body types and fitness levels.
“I created AKT to provide consumers with a unique and ever-changing workout experience focused on something no other fitness concept does — a kinetic approach to physical wellness with a cutting-edge in pop fitness culture,” said Anna Kaiser, founder of AKT. “Since opening our first studio in 2013, AKT has become much more than a workout for so many; it provides a sense of support and inspiration. We are excited to bring the AKT culture to the west coast and look forward to celebrating our new studio space with the Denver community.”
The 2,000 sq. foot facility will be housed in the former A Line Boutique space and was reconfigured to foster a collaborative work environment and a culture that combines the personalization of private training with the community and electric experience that a boutique studio offers. AKT Cherry Creek will be home to one state-of-the-art studio outfitted with top-of-the-line fitness equipment.
AKT recently entered into a franchise partnership with the curator of top boutique fitness concepts, Xponential Fitness, subsequently resulting in rapid and consistent growth for the AKT community. Denver studio owners, Shannon and Bruce Jaeger were also the first franchisees to sign on. “We wanted to do something different and helping AKT expand their brand was exactly what we were looking for. We were hooked after our first class and wanted everyone to experience the energy and excitement that we did. I am beyond thrilled for AKT to make its first home in Colorado in the heart of Cherry Creek. We can’t wait to wow everyone when our doors open.”, said co-owner, Shannon Jaeger.
AKT currently has studios in New York - including East Hampton, Upper East Side and NoMad, New Caanan, Connecticut and Orange County, CA. Additional AKT studios are slated to open in Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas, Detroit and Denver.
