No men, no makeup, no mirrors. It’s a pretty stringent philosophy, but it’s one that’s helped members of the Curves community since 1992. Part fitness center, part support group, Curves is a women’s only club that takes a streamlined approach to health, fitness, and weight loss. Full-body, 30-minute workouts combine strength training, cardiovascular exercises, and stretching into calorie-torching sessions, enhanced further by the Curves Complete Program. The program, available at an extra fee, supplements efforts at the gym with personalized meal plans and weekly one-on-one meetings with a certified Curves coach. Outside the facility, members and non-members alike can purchase a variety of Curves products, from workout apparel and accessories to the protein powders and vitamins used to build strength or distract people from all of the caterpillars in your medicine cabinet.
Rather than a competition, the instructors at Lehigh Valley Shihou-ken Karate treat their self-defense style as an art form. Sensei Charlie draws from more than 40 years of martial-arts training to lead his team in training students as young as 9 or old enough to be technically immortal. In classes tailored to specific ability levels, the instructors drill students in strikes, blocks, and kata—a choreographed series of fighting moves. All classes focus on the shihou-ken style, which blends elements from three forms of traditional Japanese karate and also introduces principles of muay thai, boxing, and judo.
Owned and operated by AJ Davis, an experienced personal trainer and certified massage therapist, The One You offers a rejuvenating and invigorating selection of holistic fitness and health solutions.

Stressed bodies can also opt to benefit from a 90-minute deep tissue massage, a service designed to decrease cranial stresses, increase circulation, and unfurl fibrous muscular folds into proud flags of pain-free freedom.
There's no shortage of martial-arts disciplines to be mastered at Lehigh Valley Martial Arts. Students can opt to take kung fu, karate, tai chi, or qi gong, depending on the location they attend. Expert instructors promote a motivating and inviting atmosphere by helping participants of all experience levels improve or learn new skills.
