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 am no newbie to the barre scene. I’m a devoted Physique 57 fan and I’ve tried all the major studios: Exhale, Barre3, Pure Barre, FlyBarre and Xtend Barre. I’ve even taken a barre class in PanamaBut recently, I’ve fallen hard for Pop Physique. This LA-based studio opened in NYC last year and I’ve had nothing but fabulous experience sinces.

Pop Physique, I love you. Let me count the ways.

A few weeks ago, I participated in Kale with a Side of Fries‘ two-week winter detox jam. I am going to write about my experience soon, for sure. Since the detox, I’ve had a renewed excitement for healthy cooking. I wanted to bake something sweet. I scoured the internet for a healthy muffin recipe and found this 5-ingredient one from the blog Pinch of Yum.  The recipe is super simple and the muffins were delicious. I used these gluten-free oats from Bakery on Main. They have 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per serving! (No one is paying me to say this. Though I would be open to accepting dollars, OKAY Bakery on Main?)

Here’s this week’s workout recap!
