We first met the Armijo’s last summer thanks to some of our other clients. The Armijo’s opened up the first Dailey Method studio in our area, and we are so thrilled for lots of reasons! We first found out about them because of the rave reviews we heard about this unique exercise studio, and then we were so excited when they asked us to do some of the photography for their studio, and then, their own family. We have been loyal to the Dailey Method every since (minus a couple of interruptions due to surgery and broken wrists for me–Stef…). We were thrilled when Adam & Stacey asked us to photograph their family at Folsom Lake, where they like to spend time as a family. Little Mr. R. was so cute and we loved watching him enjoy his surroundings. We have been fortunate to get to know this family in several settings, and are proud to introduce them here. Meet the Armijo family:
(James): After hearing about an exercise program called The Dailey Method from several of our clients, Stef and I decided to give it a try. Now I can’t speak for Stef, but it has been a long time since the brutal workout routine I used to hurl my body through in my college days. Back then I would throw crazy amounts of weights around and run…and run…and run. So when I tried the first class at the Dailey Method, I expected it to be tough, but not “I can’t move my abs” tough. It is very challenging and I have a long way to go before I can make it through a class without a little bit of “cheating”.
(Stefani): I have known for a long time that my body wasn’t going to tone and strengthen itself, so when 2 of our clients within the same week informed us of a workout class they absolutely love, we decided to check it out. The class was originally being held in the home of Stacey & Adam Armijo, owners of the local Dailey Method. We knew their brand-new studio was opening up close to our home, so we decided to try it out when the studio opened up. After inquiring about the class, Stacey asked if we’d be interested in photographing the studio and instructors; of course we would! So last Saturday we began our journey to more fit bodies. For those of you wondering what exactly The Dailey Method is, in a nutshell, it’s “a unique combination of ballet barre work, core conditioning, stretching, and orthopedic exercise.” In short, it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done, I was extremely sore after the first class, and it’s awesome!
This weekend is the grand opening celebration, and free classes are being offered both Saturday and Sunday, so if you’re curious, check it out! Visit their website for a class schedule. It will be well worth it!
