nna Kaiser is a fitness professional, dancer, choreographer, and entrepreneur. She is the preferred personal trainer of high-profile clientele including Kelly Ripa, Alicia Keys, Shakira, Karlie Kloss, Hilary Duff, Shiri Appleby and Sarah Jessica Parker. In 2013, she opened her first AKT studio on the Upper East Side, after successfully introducing her privately trained clients to the revolutionary cardio-based dance workout. Rooted in functional training that allows the body to move in a dynamic way, each AKT studio class is between 45-60 minutes long and incorporates a full spectrum of fitness elements from dance to strength training and plyometrics. With new original programming created every three weeks, and the belief that movement has a powerful, lasting impact, AKT is a workout for all body types and fitness levels. Recently, AKT entered into a franchise partnership with the curator of top boutique fitness concepts, Xponential Fitness. As a result, the AKT community has seen rapid and consistent growth, with the expectation that 200 franchise units will be sold by the end of 2019. Anna graduated Cum Laude from the University of California, Irvine. She began her career as a professional dancer and served as the principal dancer in the Disney film “Enchanted.” She hosted the ABC reality series My Diet is Better than Yours, and offers a streaming program called AKT On Demand, as well as a DVD collection that features her “Happy Hour” workout. The website Greatist.com named Anna one of the 100 Most Influential People in Health & Fitness in 2016 and 2017. She is married to Dr. Carlos Wesley. They have one child.
