The schedule is replete with fusion-style classes such as Akemi barre fit, a combination of yoga, Pilates, and strength exercises. Akemi barre similarly incorporates ballet moves, core strengthening, and yoga. Instructors also lead Zumba lessons and classes that focus specifically on the arms, abs, and glutes.
Akemi Fitness Method
The Akemi Fitness Method studio hosts a mix of alternative workout classes that incorporates a range of movements to tone muscles, improve equilibrium, and enhance endurance. Inspired by the results-oriented Lotte Berk Method, this workout style engages students in core exercises, dance, yoga, and light weight training during a variety of classes. Laura Baginski of Time Out Chicago notes that the Akemi barre class caused her to "walk out feeling taller, leaner," thanks to its combination of ballet barre exercises, Pilates, and free weights. Combat fit classes combine elements from ballet, hip-hop, kickboxing, and yoga, adding in cardiovascular exercises to burn fat and light resistance training to sculpt frames until they achieve the angular glisten of a Roman statue. An hour of the arms, abs and booty session firms appendages, six-packs, and seats. With classes held throughout the day, seven days a week, Akemi's calendar accommodates students with all types of schedules.

“Jocelyn, the owner, is absolutely the best instructor/trainer I have ever had - she pushes you to go farther than you think you can then builds in transitions that allow you to rest a bit; then on to the next challenge. All the workouts are always fresh and interesting; and she always provides counsel to you if you have weak knees or the like. I cannot say enough good things about her and the studio! ”
