You could ask the question, “Does the Dailey Method really need to offer a cycling class since they already have such a good thing going with their barre classes?” That’s what I thought but I’ll tell you the answer most certainly is “Yes!” This class is here just in time to keep you healthy during the holiday season, rather than waiting for a New Years Resolution. I am a fan of The Dailey Method’s fitness classes, which combine athletic ballet barre work, core conditioning, stretching and orthopedic exercises with inspiring instructors like Tami Conway, owner of The Dailey Method Bucktown. I took a class at the brand new cycling studio last week and immediately I was impressed with the bikes themselves. The Stages Cycling bikes felt smaller and more streamlined than other spinning bikes. Next I was quickly motivated with Tami’s upbeat instruction, the music and the meditation segments. When I closed my eyes I actually worked harder! There were no weights used in the workout, yet I felt I got a total body workout. After the invigorating class I asked Tami how the class is different than other cycling classes. The answer is The Dailey Method’s signature focus on alignment and form. “Our cycle class is totally unique in its focus on an alignment based cardio workout and provides client with a sense of one-on-one focus.” She told me. “We are excited to offer a safe, energetic, calorie-burning workout under the same roof as our barre classes.” And how should we work in the cycling with the barre classes? Tami suggests taking 2 of the 45 minute cycling classes with 3 days of barre per week, or you can do 3 cycling and 2 barre. The warm environment and friendly staff at the Daily Method Bucktown offers a wonderful workout environment – and childcare too!
