If you've found yourself Insta-stalking personal trainers for hours on end (we're guilty, too!) then you've probably come across legendary NYC trainer Akin Akman AKA @AKINIKO. Akin has amassed a well-deserved following for his high-energy and ass-kicking SoulCycle classes and his seriously challenging 'Akin's Army' boot camps (if you're lucky enough to secure a spot). Akin's approach to fitness? Take on life with a champion's mindset and you can accomplish anything.
