Executive Founding Instructor

Gill Dalby

Shit I Like:
The Office – especially Creed
Wine – partial to a bold Cab, if you will
Cheese – anything from CowGirl Creamery

Hailing from the BAY AREEEAAAAA, Gillian grew up watching some of the greatest sports teams of our generation – 49ers, Warriors, Giants; for example. Ya, she went there. Gill graduated from Chico State with a Bachelor’s in Health Science and minor in Health Education. After a few years of that 9-5 life, Gillian found a passion for teaching group fitness on the side. Finally, she let go of her day job and focused on what she truly loved, motivating people to accomplish their goals and push beyond their limits physically and mentally (cheesy, sry).

When Gillian isn’t teaching at CAZ you can find her mulling over the Whole Foods Cheese Counter, planning a trip to wine country, or yelling at the TV when her team isn’t doing well. She also recently picked up golf, but TBD on if that will last.
