It is safe, efficient and effective for women of all ages and fitness levels, and you’ll be exercising in an environment that’s comfortable and welcoming. By getting stronger, increasing your flexibility and working to prevent injury, you are setting the stage for your healthier, more active future.
The Curves program includes all five components of a complete workout – warm-up, strength training, cardiovascular training, cool-down and stretching – just in 30 minutes. You change stations every 30 seconds, allowing you to recover and work out different muscle groups.
You’ll work every major muscle group while keeping your heart rate within your target training zone. And with a circuit coach to teach and motivate you at every workout, you are sure to reach your fitness goals in no time. Whether you want to gain energy, tone up or lose weight, the Curves circuit will work for you.
Studies show that regular physical activity, such as the three-day-a-week Curves program, substantially reduces the risk of conditions including coronary heart disease, stroke, colon cancer, Type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and high blood pressure. It also helps to control weight; contributes to healthy bones, muscles and joints; helps to relieve the pain of arthritis; and reduces the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
The machines are manufactured specifically for Curves and are designed for safety, simplicity and effectiveness, automatically adjusting to every fitness level. The equipment provides the benefits of cardiovascular exercise and weight training with the safe movement of hydraulic resistance, giving an effective workout while protecting bones and joints.
Specially designed for women, each low-impact machine works at least two muscle groups and as many as four at one time because you push and pull, rather than lift and lower weight. Alternating upper body, lower body and core muscles, the Curves circuit provides a full body workout in just 30 minutes.
Curves also offers classes such as Body Basics and Balance classes within the circuit. These classes offer members an opportunity for more exercise without using the machines, expending extra energy but still not overloading muscles. Movements are completed using just your body weight and concentrate on upper, middle, or lower body. Movements are simple and have various levels of difficulty so ALL members can enjoy and benefit from the classes.
At Curves there’s always a coach in the circuit to help you train and motivate you – you’re never alone. She’ll help you with your form and push you to your personal best.
The Curves program delivers proven results. It’s been extensively studied in the Exercise and Sports Nutrition Laboratory at Texas A&M University. These studies have revealed that women can burn up to 500 kcals in the Curves 30-minute workout.
