Barre

When our lives change (and families grow), our exercise routine changes, too. Whether you have a toddler on your hip or a teething baby, your idea of “me-time” can sometimes sound illusive. But just one hour at the gym—or your favorite fitness class—can give you mental clarity, strength, and much-needed alone time.  

Don’t have time to look? We’ve rounded up some of our favorite gyms and studios that offer childcare—check them out!  

The Dailey Method 

The scoop:  
At The Dailey Method, you can align your body, mind, and spirit. Not like other group fitness classes, The Dailey Method focuses on achieving a strong body through an evolving mix of fitness practices that samples the best benefits from different forms of exercise. No matter your experience or fitness level, you’ll be welcomed in by passionate fitness-lovers who want to help you become your best self

The classes: 
For busy mamas who could use a little relaxation, Dailey Release is a class that uses myofascial release techniques to improve mobility, flexibility, and overall comfort in the body. If you’re a mom, you know about the neck pain that comes from carrying babies around all day and soreness from bending over picking up toys. Reduce inflammation, pain, and chronic stress in your body and end with 5 minutes of meditation before heading back to your kiddos. 

The kiddos: 
One of the first fitness studios to offer in-studio childcare, The Dailey Method is committed to busy parents. Many of their studios offer professional childcare in a fun, friendly space, so you can focus on your workout without worry!  

Can’t bear to separate? Dailey Baby is a class designed to include your kiddo! If you’re a new mom, you can practice balance and fitness while bonding with your infant. Just bring your front pack carrier, a baby blanket, and your little one! Check your local studio for rates and availability.

Black-owned Beauty and Wellness Businesses to Know

February is Black History Month—a celebration of the achievements and contributions of African Americans in society.  As the beauty and wellness industry becomes a more welcoming and inclusive space for all, we are taking this opportunity to continue to shine a light on the gap of inclusivity and diversity in our industry, and take action to promote, empower, and honor the Black community that shapes and grows wellness.  

While the beauty industry is making improvements—it's important to showcase and support Black businesses and the creatives in this space every day. To honor them, we're shouting out some of our favorite Black-owned beauty and wellness businesses to support. 

1. Beauty Bin 

Beauty Bin is a full-service day spa and dry bar located in Asheville, NC. With a focus on inclusivity for people of all backgrounds, genders, and races, their MO is to match the outer beauty of every client to their inner beauty. From eyelash extensions and hydrafacials to waxing and massage, Beauty Bin is a one-stop-shop for all the spa services.  
 

2. KIKA Stretch Studio  

The KIKA Method® is a gentle assisted stretching process that loosens up tight muscles freeing your body from pain and stress. By practicing this method, clients can experience decreased muscle tension, increased energy, enhanced flexibility, a substantial reduction in stress, improved posture and relaxation, and increased mental clarity. While its headquarters is located in Las Vegas, NV, they have multiple locations sprinkled throughout the US, including Atlanta, New York City, and Dallas—just to name a few.

3. Kimberly Coleman Salon 

At Kimberly Coleman Salon, their philosophy begins with promoting healthy tresses, elegant sets, unique accouterments, perfect pampering of hands and feet, and precision cuts. Known for working with models and celebrities, they fully appreciate and celebrate the diversity of their clientele which also includes super moms and warrior dads. 

4. Pressed Roots 

Pressed Roots was developed with the simple concept in mind—that everyone deserves access to easy, and quality hair care. What started as a single pop-up shop in Boston, grew to a multi-city pop-up tour, and is now slated to be the largest national hair salon franchise specializing in the care and styling of highly textured hair, they launched their first flagship location in Dallas, TX.  

5. SW3AT  

Jersey City resident, Alyza Brevard-Rodriguez started SW3AT. The company began as a fitness apparel line in 2015 but evolved into a sanctuary catered to health and wellness now known as SW3AT Sauna Studio—the first infrared sauna studio in Jersey City. The healing power of infrared heat therapy is a phenomenal option for holistic health proven to strengthen the immune system and provide relief from joint stiffness and muscle pain. It is also supportive of any fitness program as it aids in weight loss (you can torch up to 900 calories in a 45-minute session) while also detoxifying your body from some of the most harmful toxins. 

6. The TEN Nail Bar 

Kelli Coleman and Anika Jackson opened The TEN Nail Bar in Detroit to address a void in their city. They saw a need for a quality, modern nail bar that could also serve as a fun social space for Detroit’s residents and professionals. They designed the TEN to provide their clients with a #Perfect10 experience—where you can relax, enjoy music, a drink, your friends, a clean and precise manicure, and a much-needed break from all your hectic days. 

7. Bettye O Day Spa 

Located in the beautiful downtown Hyde Park Chicago area, Bettye O Day Spa specializes in first-class treatments. They aim to nurture and relax each of their clients with individualized and innovative therapeutic techniques. From body wraps and massages to facials and hydrotherapy, this day spa promises to be a safe place for healing to occur.
