Smart, welcoming, authentic, purposeful, passionate, fun, committed. If it sounds like a great date, that’s because it is. We embrace the ultimate in exercise science giving you the confidence to know you are participating in the safest, most effective workout on the planet.
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.
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
“Today I was looking in the mirror at The Dailey Method Mission-Castro & I felt beautiful. The atmosphere of acceptance for who I am made me feel that way both inside & outside.”– Barbara L.M., SF - Mission Castro
I love the Dailey Method. It keeps me strong, and limber, helps me keep a healthy back and healthy joints. The teachers are amazingly knowledgeable. I also love that there’s a big range of ages of women in class. I can see strong models of aging beautifully and aging strong that make me feel very hopeful about my own future.– Kia S., Piedmont
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
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.– Meg, Naperville
“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!
