With a vibrant studio atmosphere, celebrity roster, limitless On Demand digital presence and highly engaged social following, AKT is both a community-first brand and a best-in-class fitness experience. At AKT, members dance, sweat and get stronger all while surrounded by a strong sense of community, motivation and electric energy.
