Living in NYC, I have the honour of getting to know le best of the best. Anna Kaiser is no stranger to the world of wellness. This super talented, beautiful and hardworking friend, Anna is le prime example of a woman who works with non-stop integrity. She is THE expert of her space: her background in professional dance and sports medicine is the driving force behind her workout/studio + business, AKT. Anna founded AKT in 2013 after years of personal training for celebs including Kelly Ripa, Shakira, and Karlie Kloss. Yas Queen.
A combination of dance, yoga, strength training, and plyometrics, Anna’s fad-free classes will never leave you bored or achy. “You can tolerate some pain and boredom, for a little while. But not for long. The only way to sustain true fitness is to feel you’re growing, achieving, and moving toward something bigger,” says Anna. Amen, girl.
Anna and I got to catch up, stretch, whip smoothies up, do tea + reconnect (and take this Boomerang!) together this weekend, and surprise: she’s 6 months preggo! Have you ever seen a soon-to-be mama look THIS good!?
Anna reminds all of us, you must learn to master your craft, put in thousands of hours of training, hard work, sweat, love, tears and struggle before you see success. So if you’re looking to be a somebody in your space? Be certain of this, hard work never goes unseen. But you’re going to have to put in the time.
Love you Anna! xx ck
