This September many Dailey Method Studios (including the four that I own in the Bay Area) will be participating in a clean eating program called The 30 Clean. It starts on September 15th and the final day to register is September 5th. Details on The 30 Clean and registration can be found here. I am a proponent of clean eating programs but also understand the obstacles of participating. They can take too much time, leave a sense of deprivation, make you feel hungry or just don’t fit well with your lifestyle. I participated in the program back in May and was so happy with how truly easy it was to follow and how much I felt like I could continue to incorporate their philosophies into my eating once the program was over. You can even have an occasional glass of wine! I also really appreciate the community component because, of course, we’re always stronger when we work together. In case you’re intrigued, or on the fence about joining us I wanted you to be able hear from others about their experiences. Below, are a few success stories from students and a studio owner.
"The Dailey Method and The 30 Clean have changed my life. I just celebrated my 50th birthday and can honestly say that I've never been in as good of shape as I am in now. Perhaps most important is that I feel great - physically, mentally, and emotionally. Reflecting back, I see how my poor eating and exercise patterns perpetuated a constant state of fatigue and stress. Not knowing what to expect from a barre class, I decided to try The Dailey Method. Wow, I loved it and came back again and again. I became stronger and had much more mental clarity and emotional balance. My body began to noticeably change. When I first learned about The 30 Clean through TDM, I immediately joined the challenge. Always grabbing my meals on the go, I was not sure how I was going to prepare healthy meals. Well guess what - I love, love, love eating clean. The energy and sheer bliss that I began feeling is ever present as I continue to nurture my body and mind with truly healthy food. Like TDM, The 30 Clean team provide an incredibly supportive environment that is rich with information, guidance and camaraderie. With The Dailey Method and The 30 Clean, I've lost more than 20 pounds, but I've gained so much more in energy and peace of mind - not to mention the defined muscles, flat tummy, and healthy glow!" - Marguerite
"I was introduced to TDM in the Fall of 2011. After my first class, I was hooked! A couple months later, I joined the trade staff working Front Desk for the studio. My practice progressed and I became stronger and leaner as months passed by. After participating in the studio's first 30 Day Challenge, I was in the best shape I'd been in for a long time! Then, life happened and it all changed. My work and family schedule only allowed me to attend 2-3 classes per week when I was previously doing 5-6. Pair that with poor eating habits and there you have it...20 pound weight gain! I had no energy, bad cravings, and struggled every time I took class. By the end of last year, I was determined to get back in shape and transition my family into eating clean, whole foods. We joined The 30 Clean New Year Challenge through TDM and that was the first day to a new ME. I'm happy to say that I'm back to my 5-6 classes per week, and am on my third 30 Clean Challenge. Wouldn't be possible without my amazing, supportive husband, Mikey, who does whatever it takes for me to continue on this journey. I've lost 25 pounds and 25 inches since January and am still going. I have energy, I feel strong and can say I'm the happiest I've ever been!" - Renee C.
"I have nothing but great things to say about The 30 Clean! The effects of the program go way beyond weight-loss. Yes, you will feel lighter, healthier, more energetic, and less bloated, but what really sets The 30 Clean apart is the community support and camaraderie created on their Facebook boards. The studio truly becomes a community all working towards the same goal. Everyone is rooting for each other and everyone wants to see everyone else succeed! Additionally, as a nursing mother, there are not many "cleanses" that I can do, but since this is not about calorie restriction, it's doable! Bonus - you walk out with a bunch of new recipe ideas!" - Stephanie F - The Dailey Method RB/Poway studio owner
I look forward to sharing this journey with all of you in September!
