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. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. 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.

Jump to: That's the Spirit! Captain Bonnie Barnacles: In an era when most women were relegated to sitting at home by the fire knitting children to help with chores, Bonnie Barnacles dreamt of more.

Today, she and her forsaken crew still haunt the harbor, turning a pretty pence with their home jewelry-making workshops and inspirational cassettes.
