Anna Kaiser is heading to LA to make dance cardio dreams come true

Calling all West Coast dance cardio divas: Mark your calendars and bust out your best Flyknits and crop tops, because Anna Kaiser is coming to Los Angeles. She wants to rock your world for an entire week—and she has some other big news as well.

Kaiser’s New York City-based studio—beloved by Kelly Ripa and Shakira, among other famously fit celebs—is expanding to Los Angeles for a weeklong “transformative” intensive leading up to the Academy Awards.

The five-day AKT InTensive program, running February 23–27 in Brentwood and West Hollywood, will feature her wildly fun (and deceptively hard—you. will. sweat.) bootcamp-style workout, which focuses on cardio, strength, toning, and stretching.

“I have been traveling to LA with clients for years to get them red carpet-ready. This year I wanted to make sure I could offer my program to more clients for a ‘Resolution Reboot,'” Kaiser says. In other words, don’t be surprised if you see an AKT-loving actress grapevining beside you in class.

Speaking of celebs, you’ll truly be getting the star treatment with this program: In addition to daily workouts, participants will also receive at-home meal delivery (from Kaiser-approved menus) as well as nutrition counseling and facial treatments throughout the week.

And if you can’t make it, don’t fear—the fitness guru has big news for Angelenos. “Spoiler alert: Los Angeles is the next market for an AKT flagship,” Kaiser told us. “What better time to embrace the West Coast than Oscars week!”

Not LA-based or Academy Awards-bound? Check out our exclusive video series, which makes Kaiser your personal dance cardio coach, to get your Push and your Rocking Horse on point. —Alison Feller
