Class Review: AKT in Motion – Happy Hour

AKT in Motion has been on my radar for a while. There’s a studio in NoMad not too far from my office, since it’s not on ClassPass I needed a little push to try it.

AKT was created by Anna Kaiser, a former Tracy Anderson trainer. After my less than stellar experience at Tracy Anderson’s East Hampton studio, I was a little hesitant to try something based on the same principles. But after reading a few good reviews my pal Katy and I decided to give it a shot. (We also went to Tracy Anderson together.)

I tried the Tracy Anderson Method in East Hampton

Tracy Anderson is the fitness trainer to many a glamorous gal.  It’s well know that Gwyneth Paltrow is a client, but the list doesn’t end there. J. Lo, Lena Dunham and Kim Kardashian are all in on the action too.

As a fitness fan girl, I wanted to try her program for a long time. TA (as she is referred to) has a few Hamptons outposts, a Tribeca spot and a studio in London. A few weeks ago, my friend Katy and I signed up for her “TAVA” class at the East Hampton location. It’s conveniently located right in town.

TAVA is a cardio dance class, but its low impact, so there isn’t as much jumping as you might expect.

Let’s start with the basics. The class cost $45 + tax. This is $11 more than Barry’s Bootcamp ( NYC pricing, and still $5 more than Barry’s Hamptons rate) and $9 more than Physique 57. So it wasn’t cheap.

All of the workouts: 7/11 – 7/17

Hello lovelies. Last week I was all over the place. I was away from home every day but Thursday. During the week I traveled on two different work trips and over the weekend I went to the beach. I’m not complaining. It suits me to move around this much. But as I shared earlier this week, I often end up slacking in the fitness department.

In other news, this is the first month that ClassPass’s price change takes effect. (Instead of unlimited classes for $125, you are now limited to 10 classes at the $125 monthly rate. Alternatively, you could pay more for unlimited access.)  I am on the 10 class per month plan. We shall see how it goes. I have a feeling I will like this (even though I’ll spend more money) since I’ll be getting exactly what I want after those 10 classes an on ClassPass by purchasing classes at my favorite studios. (Sometimes on ClassPass you have to hustle to get the class you want.)
