No men, no makeup, no mirrors. It's a philosophy that?s helped members of the Curves community since 1992. Part fitness center, part community center, Curves is a women?s only club that takes a streamlined approach to health, fitness, and weight loss. Curves has teamed up with health and fitness coach Jillian Michaels to develop full-body, 30-minute workouts that kick-start weight loss, combining strength training, cardio, and stretching into sessions that torch fat, build strength, boost intensity, and prevent plateaus. These workouts are enhanced further by the Curves Complete Program, available for an extra fee, which is rooted in Curves' method for effective weight loss in that it supplements efforts at the gym with personalized meal plans and weekly one-on-one meetings with a certified Curves coach.

At just 12 years old, studio owner Betsy Jones-Cooper stepped into her first yoga class accompanied by her mother, who, at the time, was a bit skeptical about the mind-body practice. As it turned out, yoga won over both mother and daughter. As an adult, she eventually discovered and fell in love with the Bikram style, a yogic variation that eventually inspired her to study directly under its founder Bikram Choudhury, complete a 500-hour certification program, and teach the 26-posture series at her very own studio. Over the next decade, her yoga interests expanded into other yoga traditions, including the more aerobic Vinyasa style, which links a continuous series of postures with mindful breaths, in addition to the active routines of Hot Fusion and Yoga Core. As she's expanded her classes, she's accumulated a team of passionate, fun-loving instructors and a database of more than 6,000 students.
Founded in 1974, Yoga East has spent nearly four decades guiding visitors along the path to mental serenity and physical wellness. The nonprofit educational organization holds more than 75 classes a week at three Louisville studios, inviting guests of all fitness backgrounds to flow through the tableaux of multiple yoga disciplines. Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and gentle yoga cull tension from muscles and foster flexibility. Classes can accommodate skill levels from gentle to advanced by modifying maneuvers and demanding that the tree and mountain poses be performed atop their namesakes.
Each Yoga East instructor has earned certification from Yoga Alliance. Their collective expertise enables the studios to offer teacher training as well as workshops, community events, and additional fitness courses, such as Pilates.
