AKT fitness studio

Charlotte, get ready to move and groove. AKT is here to introduce you to the full-body workouts that celebrities like Kelly Ripa, Shakira and Alicia Keys swear by.

Founded in New York City in 2013 by celebrity trainer Anna Kaiser, AKT offers dance-based classes that utilize cross-training techniques in a high-energy, electric atmosphere. There’s even a disco ball to remind you that yes, working out can be fun. With four signature class formats, including dance-based cardio, strength, toning and circuit training, AKT challenges clients to sweat, move and burn calories to change their bodies. Every class works the entire body, using low-impact, high-intensity movements designed to tone and build lean muscle.

“Because our workouts are insanely fun, doing something enjoyable makes it easier to stay consistent and see results,” says Christy Wade of AKT SouthPark. “Our fierce community of supportive, energetic and welcoming trainers, team and members are alongside you to not only define your goals, but keep you on track to achieve them.”

AKT is located in Morrison Shopping Center in SouthPark. To celebrate its opening, the fitness studio is offering an array of amazing health and wellness giveaways in September to new members. The sooner one signs up, the more opportunities you’ll have to win prizes like facials, stretches, cryotherapy, infrared sessions, organic CBD products, health assessments, personalized fitness consultations and more. During AKT’s grand opening weekend of September 14 – 17, members will receive 30% off retail products from Lululemon, FreePeople Movement, Alo, Noli Yoga, Emily Hsu, Spiritual Gangster, AVA Los Angeles, Heroine Sport, NUX and others.

Newcomers can try an Intro to AKT class, which breaks down key components of AKT’s signature classes — dance, bands, tone and circuit — in a 45-minute session. AKT workouts are for all fitness levels, with trainers who will help members find the right starting point and plan. Don’t like to dance? AKT offers circuit and toning classes with no dance component.

Workouts change every three weeks, allowing members to improve and be challenged, but preventing boredom and burnout.

Learn more about AKT and book your first class here. Follow AKT on social media for details on the grand opening giveaways and studio news.
