Over 25 years ago, Curves changed women’s fitness by delivering studio fitness without the premium price. While the workouts are only 30 minutes, you feel the benefits long after. Unlike traditional gyms, a Curves membership gives you the tools and support you need to reach your goals and set the stage for a healthier, more active future.
I feel comfortable and encouraged by a community of other women who share the same fitness goals, providing real encouragement to lose weight and stay fit.
WHO NEEDS IT?
Any woman who wants to get or stay fit, be healthy, lose weight, and feel better in a safe, supportive environment—without the stress of being observed by the opposite sex. Women who have tried losing weight by focusing on either dieting or exercising, but not a complete solution involving both. Women who do not have 90 minutes for cardio and strength training.
WHAT IS THE HEALTHOVATION?
Curves Complete is a complete weight loss solution for women that entails Fitness, Meal Plans and Coaching. Fitness plan includes a 30-minute workout 4 times a week, combining strength training and cardiovascular activity using safe hydraulic machines. Members meet with coaches weekly to review their diet, exercise, behavior and goals. Curves also provides a community of women for support in a comfortable environment.
WHAT WAS THERE BEFORE?
Traditional co-ed gyms where women might feel uncomfortable when exercising among men. Gyms that had separate machines for cardio and strength training, requiring at least a 90 minutes to get a complete workout. Traditional diet programs where women get advice on dieting and supplements to lose weight but do not have the added benefit of exercise.
Curves is the largest chain of fitness centers for women in the world with more than 6,000 clubs in more than 80 countries, serving more than 1.5 million members who are feeling better every day. Curves is recognized as a global leader in women’s fitness, changing women’s lives and helping to combat osteoporosis and many other chronic diseases.
