Taut Body Studio

Village Market, upper level behind Art Cafe

Taut body is a “boutique fitness” studio in Nairobi offering a beautiful intimate setting for getting fit, located in Village Market  shopping center in Nairobi (Gigiri).  The goal of Taut Body is to introduce the latest in fitness methods to Africa and the fastest most effective techniques to change your health and physique. Much more than a studio, it is a community of like-minded people who value high-quality training and environments. The studio offers group exercise classes, personal training and nutrition counseling.  Unlike a gym which can be intimidating and unsupervised, Taut Body instructors know each client personally, their fitness level and injuries and tailor workouts accordingly even in a group setting.

Taut Body Fitness Studio specializes in “Barre Workouts,” and “TRX Classes” famous for shaping the bodies of Madonna, Natalie Portman, Gweneth Paltrow and more.  The fitness craze that has swept California and New York, has come to Kenya first! The studio also offers yoga classes, Pilates based classes and cardio classes including the world-renowned crossfit style workouts (High Intensity Interval Training). We chose to introduce these methods to Kenya because of their profound results in weight loss, toning and strength conditioning in preparation of other sports.

The workouts include people in their 20s to people in their 60s, people with past injuries, pregnant women, new moms, and people who are total sports and fitness junkies. Each class can be modified based on your personal fitness level.  We guarantee you will progress and be challenged at any level.

Taut Body studio is owned by Amy Selbach, a certified personal trainer, Pilates Instructor and certified holistic health counselor from the New York Institute of Integrated Nutrition.  She has a BA in Literature from UCLA and has a background in international business development, brand strategy, marketing and teaches workshops mentoring small business owners.
