Jill Dailey


Jill Dailey is a true pioneer of the dance barre fitness revolution on the West Coast. A degreed Kinesiologist, Jill soon found that her true passion was helping people transform their lives through fitness.

Seeking the most advanced methods to sculpt the body, Jill became an early trainee of the Lotte Berke method. Taking what she learned in the Lotte Berke program in New York City, Jill brought the ballet barre to California. Focusing on micro-movements and stretches to strengthen and condition, Jill’s classes soon built a buzz in San Francisco. Clients couldn’t get enough of the fresh, evolving workouts — and the extreme results.

In 2000, she opened The Dailey Method in San Francisco’s Marina District. Amassing passionate devotees, The Dailey Method was soon expanding to new studios as an explosive community was born. Bootstrapping her way through the process, Jill has moved The Dailey Method from a 1-room studio, to an international fitness revolution. Throughout the process, she never lost sight of her original goal of improving the lives of those she teaches. Jill loves The Dailey Method because it gives people confidence, community, and a way to effect positive change in their lives.

Along with her partner Doug McIntosh, Jill still leads The Dailey Method. She spends time each year certifying passionate individuals as Master Teachers, keeping The Dailey Method fresh, results-focused, and as authentic as the day it began. The Dailey Method is the original multidiscipline barre fitness class.
