Celebrity Trainer and Founder, Anna Kaiser Studios

Anna Kaiser is an American fitness authority and entrepreneur. After earning a BFA in Dance from the University of California in 2002 (Cum Laude), she studied kinesiology, sports medicine, and functional anatomy at Mount Sinai Medical Center. She then went on to acquire teaching certificates in Pre/Post Natal, Pilates, TRX (Total Body Resistance Exercise), and NASM (The National Academy of Sports Medicine).

 

Prior to committing to a career in fitness, Anna was a professional dancer and choreographer for over 20 years. Some of the highlights of her performance career include: resident choreographer for LIVE with Kelly, principal dancer/assistant choreographer for Shakira’s “She Wolf” video, international tour of Fame!, Swing, Disney’s feature film Enchanted (principal dancer), Broadway’s 50th Anniversary of West Side Story, 50th Anniversary of Music Man, and the revival of Showboat at Carnegie Hall. She has performed the works of Paul Taylor, Jose Limon, Donald McKayle, and Fosse.

 

Her journey in fitness paralleled her career as a dancer. She wanted to find a way to fuse the fun and celebratory spirit of dance with the efficacy of interval training. Anna’s fitness career progressed as she lent her expertise to a number of workout programs including Beachbody’s Insanity and The Denise Austin Series. Her reputation for results quickly made her the preferred trainer of such celebrities as Kelly Ripa, Shakira, Alicia Keys, and Sarah Jessica Parker. Her first DVD, Expecting More: The Complete Pregnancy Fitness System for Fit and Healthy Moms-to-Be, received rave reviews internationally, and received a GOLD medal at the National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA). She has since released her signature workout Happy Hour on DVD. In 2016, she co-hosted the primetime ABC series My Diet Is Better Than Yours. Anna has collaborated with Target and C9Champion, creating the Anna Kaiser Limited Edition Collection, which was available in all Target stores. Anna has been featured in Vogue, The New York Times, Cosmopolitan, US Weekly, The Today Show, Good Morning America, SELF, Shape, WWD, E!, InStyle, W magazine, Women’s Health, Well & Good, among many others. She was also named to the Greatest Top 100 Most Influential People in Health and Fitness

 

Her experience as an artist, coupled with her expertise in fitness, led her to create her own brand and luxury fitness concept, Anna Kaiser Studios. With three flagship studios (NYC, East Hampton, New Canaan, CT) and an international streaming platform, Anna has helped transform thousands of lives through her workout program and has quickly become one of the industry’s most highly respected and reputable experts. Anna franchised her brand across the US and continues to create new content for Anna Kaiser Studios flagship locations.
