Workout routines such as yoga, Pilates, dance classes, and whale riding are great when practiced individually, but form the ultimate übexersize when combined. Experience a symphonic synergy of fitness with today's deal: for $20, you get two walk-in classes at The Dailey Method (a $40 value). Your Groupon is good at The Dailey Method's Bucktown or Naperville location.
The Dailey Method is a challenging one-hour program developed by Jill Dailey McIntosh that combines ballet barre work, stretching, core conditioning, and orthopedic exercises to tone and lengthen your body to ultra sleekosity. Improve your posture, endurance, and strength as your muscles grow supple, your soft edges firm up, and your sense of physical well-being grows like a grinch heart at Christmas.
The Dailey Method takes a mindful approach to wellness: its workouts are safe and effective for people of any fitness level, including those recovering from an injury, starting a workout routine for the first time, or expecting a little bundle of joy (this could mean pregnancy, or a bunch of DVDs you ordered). The Dailey Method offers classes every day, with early-morning and evening classes on weekdays. Check out the Bucktown schedule or Naperville schedule for beginning and intermediate-level class times, and call ahead to schedule. Wear comfortable clothing that doesn't restrict your movement or obscure your alignment (no spacesuits or cardboard robot costumes). Locker rooms with showers are available to freshen up after your ultraworkout, so you can scrub off the old you.
Time Out Chicago says The Dailey Method is a quick, effective workout:
- Bucktown has plenty of boutiques, but you gotta be able to fit into all those trendy clothes, right? Enter the Dailey Method, a new studio that combines ballet barre work, core conditioning, stretching and orthopedic exercises in its classes offered, uh, daily. The combination of exercises works on toning, strengthening and lengthening—and since each class lasts only an hour, you can get your hot bod back to shopping in no time. – Kevin Aeh
- Although it's about a half an hour commute to Bucktown from my house in Chicago's Loop, this work out is worth it. I've been at it one and a half weeks and my body's already changing... All I wanted to do was tone up, and I'm doing that and more. Toning and changing shape. Not in all my years of serious hard-core athletic training have I seen such a different so quickly. – Jessica Teas, Facebook
