Exclusive: Shakira's Trainer Shares Her Toned Tummy Secrets

“Complicated” is not a word we like to use to describe most things—mostly in relation to our dating lives or daily Sweetgreen orders. But in the case our workout routine? Therein lies the answer.

“I wanted to take what I think may be a more complicated route, but also a much more comprehensive route,” says Anna Kaiser about her cult-favorite AKT workout. “You’re going to see more studios offering hybrid workouts in the future."

Kaiser, who shapes and sculpts the likes of Shakira, Sofía Vergara, and Kate Hudson, takes a different approach to working out—one that might seem appear more complicated at first by combining elements of different workouts in one routine, but might just be the key to getting you closer to your Lily Aldridge #abgoals. Her classes are your favorite dance cardio class on steroids, with dashes of Pilates, HIIT, barre, and more thrown in the mix. Bored is the last thing you’ll feel—trust us (this editor has taken one, and can firmly attest it kicked her butt… hard).

From February 23–27, she’s bringing her signature five-day fitness intensive to Los Angeles, allowing you to totally transform your body just in time for the Academy Awards. Meal deliveries, nutrition sessions, facials, and gift bags are included—you can learn more and sign up right here. In honor of the occasion, we caught up with Kaiser and asked her to share her workout secrets (mostly in relation to Shakira’s abs and how we can get them, please and thanks).
