Anna Kaiser, founder of AKT in Motion and trainer to stars like Kelly Ripa and Sarah Jessica Parker, has built an underground dance cardio empire in New York, teaching her addictive, sculpting sweat sessions at rented spaces around town.
Today, she finally unveils her first homebase, at 244 East 84th Street (between Second and Third Avenues) on the Upper East Side. “I can’t even tell you how amazing it is to really have a home that represents who we are and everything we do,” Kaiser gushes.
And the years of experience she had building her brand made it easy for her to create a home that shines: The massive space, decorated to pay tribute to Andy Warhol’s Factory, has three workout studios, a huge lounge space, locker rooms with laundry service, and spaces where clients can see a nutritionist, acupuncturist, and massage therapist. “You’re going to get everything you need to support results,” Kaiser says.
