The Maori people—indigenous to New Zealand—coined the phrase "kia kaha," which translates as forever strong. To them, it's not so much a boast as a life philosophy about overcoming adversity, a philosophy shared by the staff of trainers at New Zealand Fitness. They use exercise methods from around the world—be it India's yoga, Latin America's Zumba, or the world-dance-fusion art of Danzmundo—to strengthen bodies. In addition, they provide supportive coaching to strengthen the spirit.
The Dailey Method builds strength and flexibility through movements that engage entire physiques and focus on proper alignment, earning praise by publications such as InStyle magazine. Helmed by owners who trained under the eponymous founder of the method, Jill Dailey, certified instructors at the Calabasas studio lead 60-minute classes where students tighten up for bikini season or tone muscles to prep for the flexing portion of a job interview. A melding of yoga poses, core conditioning, and orthopedic exercises, the method tones muscles as instructors offer modifications to accommodate all skill levels. Moves on a ballet barre enhance balance and coordination, and floor work summons sweat with torso-tightening repetitions. Parents can drop their whippersnappers off in childcare, stash their jackets and inflatable muscle suits in lockers, and shower before heading home.
