How does it work?

Kick off the shoes, rock out to some fun music, relish the burn, and be a part of an awesome community. We’re ready to help you transform your life. The Dailey Method is the fastest way to a strong, lean, sculpted body. From pilates and yoga, to ballet barre, our classes are an ever-evolving mix of movement that offers the extreme benefits from many different disciplines. Our classes are driven by fitness research and our clients’ needs.

Each class begins with high rep movements in a very small range of motion, effectively toning, elongating, and isolating the muscles. We focus on the triceps, biceps, shoulders and chest, back, seat, and legs. After working each muscle group, we stretch, shaping and leaning out the muscles, and bringing balance through increased flexibility. Our core engagement exercises emphasize our quest for ultimate alignment, learning to stabilize the muscles closest to the spine, improving our natural, functional spine position. This is very important for posture and overall spinal health; especially as we age.

The Dailey Method studios are each led by Dailey Method Master Teachers, ensuring that no matter where your studio, you will experience the most efficient and effective group workout on the planet.

But don’t just take our word for it, try a class today to find out what all the buzz is about. All of our studios offer amazing deals and promotions for new students.

    – Tom Sandt, La Grange
  • “As challenging as it is during this 60-minute class, I always feel like I am floating on my way out the door, and each time I can’t wait to sign up for my next leg-shaking session (set to great music, of course).”

    – Lisa K., SF Mission Castro
  • “Barre” none The Dailey Method is the best overall body work out I have found. It’s part strength training, stretching, barre work, and core conditioning with aspects of Pilates and yoga in a setting that is both fun and energetic. You’ll find each session both personally challenging and satisfying in defining a new level of fitness.

    “As a long time personal trainer and Registered Kinesiologist I chose The Dailey Method classes throughout my 3 pregnancies, as well as before and after to maintain my strength and flexibility.”

    – Courtney L.
  • The Dailey Method has a welcoming, fun atmosphere with wonderful instructors who genuinely care about their clients.  The instructors are knowledgable and take the time to adjust you to make sure your alignment is right. It’s like personal training in a group class.  I came to TDM after being told about it from a local, and have been so blessed by it since.  I have had intermittent hip problems since I was in grade school, accepting that it could be arthritis and there was nothing I could do about it. I’m only 28, so I was disheartened, but just lived with it. Since I have been going to the Dailey Method 5 times a week for about a month now, I have not had any hip pain. I am convinced my body was out of alignment from playing sports all my life, and without the know how of “keeping my hips square” and stretching I would have remained out of alignment!

    “I know this is an on-going commitment to my body and I am beyond pleased with the results I’m getting from the Dailey Method.”

    – Amy, Denver - Highlands
  • Working out has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I used to think that the heavier and harder you go the faster you’ll see results. I was nervous for TDM to be my sole workout after having the baby, but after countless conversations with instructors, they assured me I would see results in a whole different way. I started to measure myself and I quickly noticed I was losing inches, everywhere! It’s exciting to see that my body has started to change in many ways.  I’m feeling longer and leaner. I’m excited to see my arms getting toned with lighter weights rather than killing myself with huge heavy weights! No workout is the same and each one is a challenge. I can’t imagine my life without TDM. It is amazing for your mind and body and I feel as if I’m nurtured in every class. I am looking forward to seeing myself become stronger, leaner and hopefully more flexible!

    – Gina U., Northbrook
  • “The isometric movements and breathing prepared my body for childbirth. Although my body changed dramatically from being pregnant I am toned in places that I never was before. I am so grateful to have found TDM when I did.”

    – Kelly Eshelman, Venice
FAQs
How is The Dailey Method different from anything else out there?

Non-impact, weight-bearing exercises are the most efficient movement for muscle strength. Physical results come quickly because muscles respond naturally to this approach. Added to our obsession with healthy neutral spine position, and our focus on education and individual attention, and The Dailey Method is like nothing else

How often do I need to come to see results?

You will feel it on the very first class. Come three times per week, for six weeks and you will experience a significant increase in strength and flexibility and notice improved tone in your body. Greater results are achieved with more frequency per week and continuity over time.
