Class + Studio: TONE @ AKT Studios
Location: Nomad + UES (NYC)
Other Cities: Hamptons, New Canaan (Connecticut), Hamptons, Charlottesville (Virginia), Denver (Colorado), Yorba Linda (California)
Length: 60 mins (45 min offerings avail).
Description: In this workout, full-body strength is paired with isometric movements to burn out muscles on every plane of motion. You’ll finish class with a guided foam rolling to actively release the burn and aid in recovery before your next workout!
Sweat Level: 5/10 – Expect to glisten and need a shower, but not necessarily a hair washing.
Tone Level: 7.5/10 – Very toning. The only reason this number isn’t higher is because the workout was on the shorter side (we did express) + the last 10 minutes are spent foam rolling (which we LOVED).
Cult Level: 7/10 – Lots of loyal and AKT-only class-goers, but we didn’t pick up on major cult vibes. The dancing is more culty.
Shower/Locker Situation: They have great amenities: lockers, showers and products. However, the shower line can get pretty long.
Vibe: Not stuffy, but definitely a more luxurious studio.
Similar to: A very unique style of workout, but in terms of tone level, it’s similar to ‘Body by SJ’ with Samantha Jade, ‘Torch’d’ with Isaac Boots
Extras: Not on CP. Tone and mixer are good intro classes to AKT. Opening a lot of locations in the next year (West Hollywood, NJ, etc). Online streaming also available.
Go Back? Yes it’s a great studio and we loved this class!
