With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your 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.
Founded by Floyd "Butch" and Pearl Overly in 1972, the NASCAR–sanctioned Motordrome Speedway entertains fans with weekly automotive racing contests on its half-mile-long asphalt track. With this deal, you get tickets to a select Friday-night race that features five racing divisions, including street stock (American non-sports cars) and charger (American stock autos built between 1970–1990), each NWAAS racing event displays a variety of vehicle and racing styles. Made up of mostly local teams and drivers, the races give auto aficionados the chance show off their driving skills without jumping over gorges during a DMV driving test. With a community-friendly atmosphere involving many of the racers' own families, the Motordrome allows visitors to bring their own comestibles and drinks in a 14-inch or smaller cooler, and parking for the events is free.
