I am sure most of you have heard of Curves before and most have not stepped foot in one of their 12+ locations in the Lansing area. The main reason for this … you are not properly informed about the company and what they strive to do for women not only in Lansing but world-wide in there 10,000 locations all over the globe.
The first Curves was established in 1992 in Harlingen, Texas by the founders Gary and Diane Heavin, they came to realize there was no one place where just women could go to workout, talk weight loss and weight loss issues, receive knowledge about food and proper eating habits, find the right mentors and be surrounded by people with the same struggles. The Heavins were right and it was a huge hit right away and less than 10 years later they had opened up over 7,000 Curves locations nation wide.
Curves has become so popular for several reasons. They have combined a killer workout that is easy to follow, only 30 minutes long and incorporates “strength training and sustained cardiovascular activity through safe and effective hydraulic resistance.” But the workout is not the only selling point, Curves has a friendly, non-intimidating environment that makes it easier for women to concrete on their goals. There are no world’s strongest men there, benching 500 lbs or the latest GQ model dazzling you with his amazing smile and ripped 6 pack abs. You are there with women that have the same outlook on working out, dieting and living healthy.
Other than the workout and its wonderful environment Curves helps with weight management, something almost every woman struggles with sometime in their life. They provide resources such as classes on weight management, online programs for busy women, books on everything from motivation to healthy recipes plus they inform and sell Curves food and vitamin and mineral supplements specifically designed towards women.
The last thing that gives Curves the edge is the onsite motivators. You can schedule an appointment or just drop in and talk to these specialist. They will give you tips and tricks on how to get through the hard parts, keep you on track to hit your goal and be there to celebrate when you do. Most have been there and struggled and know exactly what you are going through. They know that not everyone can be yelled at like they are in boot camp to get results so you will get a personalized motivator that knows what will help you reach your goals best.
Curves truly is the light at the end of the tunnel for women struggling with healthy living or just want to maintain it. From workouts, to weight management to motivation, Curves has incorporated everything a women needs to be successful in healthy living all under one roof.
