Ballet, Pilates, and yoga, much like cheese, apple pie, and motor oil, are great on their own but are even better when melted together. Amalgamate fitness with today's Groupon: for $39, you get five fitness classes at The Dailey Method (an $85 value).
The Dailey Method, a challenging one-hour program developed by kinesiologist Jill Dailey McIntosh, fuses ballet-barre work, core conditioning, stretching, and orthopedic exercises to tone and lengthen bodies for cat-like sleekosity. The method, which focuses on overall physical wellness, helps to improve posture, endurance, and strength as muscles grow limber, firm, and self-sufficient enough to move without a system of pulleys. The safe, controlled exercises are led by experienced instructors who keep the entire body constantly moving and stretching, placing an emphasis on abdominal conditioning in order to enhance muscle control and prevent injuries.
The Dailey Method's busy schedule lines up classes seven days a week, and the light-filled complex includes two spacious studios, an on-site childcare room ($6/hour, not covered by this Groupon), a retail boutique featuring a variety of athletic brands, and a shower-equipped changing room where guests can use their newfound muscles to casually rearrange the rows of lockers.
