Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help to manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use participants' own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottles to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Between each weight station lies a recovery board where ladies cool down while walking, jogging, or running in place to keep up momentum. With each workout warrior at a different station, the only competition that exists is with one's own burgeoning muscles.

Following Bliss Yoga promotes holistic wellbeing by providing classes and hands-on therapy that help alleviate physical and mental concerns. The studio's yoga instructors teach a wide variety of styles tailored to the interests and capabilities of students of all skill levels. Yin yoga uses deep, sustained floor poses to stretch the tension-laden connective tissues that can limit mobility. The dynamic, flowing asana sequences of Vinyasa yoga build strength, balance, and flexibility. Additionally, the studio offers yoga classes that incorporate light weights or energetic music and core-centric exercises for students seeking a more fitness-oriented practice. The styles may vary in their physical demand; however, they can all help provide a greater sense of calm, balance, and control in students' everyday lives. To help put visitors even more at ease, Following Bliss Yoga also offers rejuvenating reiki sessions and massage therapy.
Too many 60-hour workweeks is what prompted Robyn Morrisette to ditch the corporate world for the fitness world. After becoming an ISSA-certified personal trainer, a CrossFit Level 1 coach, and a certified Adventure Boot Camp coach, she ultimately started Front Range Boot Camp, "a women’s boot camp with heart." There, while being spurred on by Morrisette and the other exercisers, women can push, pull, run, climb, and jump their way to health and physical fitness, tracking their progress and becoming part of a fun community along the way.
The exercise program changes daily but always starts with a warm-up and ends with yoga. And it's not just about the exercise—participants can also expect nutritional guidance, fitness evaluations, body challenges, personal coaching, and free events intended to inspire a totally transformed lifestyle.
