What makes us different?
What makes us different?

We are passionate about alignment. We ignite awareness through hands-on training and education. The result is better posture, better movement, and a more complete workout. We do in a single class what takes others a week.

It’s simple, but revolutionary. Proper alignment radiates outward from the spine, bringing balance. When we start with alignment the muscles engage in their correct positions, elongating, contracting, strengthening. Other workouts focus on movement first, they have you spinning your wheels, working harder than you need to, and never really balancing the body for optimal fitness and safety. The Dailey Method helps you work smarter.

The Dailey Method wasn’t started with venture capital or run by a corporation. It was a community effort that caught fire solely through word of mouth. People took the class (loved it) and told their friends, who told their friends and so on. Beyond the workout, it’s the supportive teachers and community atmosphere that sets The Dailey Method apart. Unlike a traditional large fitness class, clients receive individual education and 1-on-1 attention. The practice helps ground and center clients to transform their minds and bodies. That is all considered part of the hands-on holistic approach that makes the Dailey difference.  Still looking for answers, Learn More about our signature method.

 

Customer Stories
  • “I first came to The Dailey Method two years ago kicking and screaming courtesy of my wife, Anne, on a date class. She had been attending for quite some time and thought I would enjoy it, plus it would be a workout we could do together. Not a chance I thought. After the first session I knew this form of exercise would be a benefit to me. At 6’9” and 64 years old (next month) my goals are to improve posture, balance and core strength.. I enjoy exercising with Anne and, for the most part, my goals are seeing some improvement. The staff is great, from front desk to each and every teacher to Michelle herself. I actually look forward to my workouts. I also feel I’m an inspiration to other people because they can take solace in knowing they aren’t the worst one in class as long as I’m present. Anne was correct as always, I do enjoy me some Dailey Method.”

  • I am sure you get plenty of feedback on how your classes have done wonders for students’ overall appearance, core strength and flexibility. What I am not sure you are aware of is what you do for students like myself on the inside. Two years ago when I started classes, I found myself in tears because I felt soooo good from the inside out. I was so excited to have found an exercise program I truly enjoyed and worked me hard at the same time. It prepared me for a tough year ahead that I did not know was coming. A year ago, my family went through some devastating times. It was serious, but thankfully, we are in a much better place and I am hopeful. The only thing I could get myself to do aside from the day-to-day was go to TDM.  It kept me from falling apart and I was able to work out an incredible amount of anger in thigh work. I also sought comfort in running but it didn’t compare to going to class and, for one hour, being able to concentrate on myself. It is clear to me how passionate you are about what you do and I want you to know how you have helped me (and countless others, I’m sure). I always tell my kids that its important to be kind because we never know what someone else might be going through. TDM has been kind to me.

  • “Open up your heart”…these are words spoken by the dedicated and energetic teachers during the Dailey Method class. This is a philosophy I try and practice in all aspects of my everyday life. What I also love about this statement is the thought of opening your heart to becoming a better person; physically, mentally and spiritually. The Dailey Method is a one hour class that has created a positive impact on my life, mind and body. My days are brighter and more energized after accomplishing a class. I feel stronger, leaner and happier. I have been attending the classes for over two months and I cannot believe the changes I see in myself. It is pure bliss! I am so blessed I have found a practice I genuinely love and look forward to each day…that is not an easy task! It is challenging and always exciting!

    “I feel gratitude for the magnetic and positive teachers at the Dailey Method for connecting with each one of us to ensure we are doing our very best!”
