As they enter the training circuit at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
In more than two decades spent teaching golf, PGA instructor Kevin Crusan has found that being dogmatic about a particular method or a model swing can be counterproductive. Instead, Kevin uses what he calls a "student-centered" swing model, tailoring his teaching approach to the strengths and abilities of each individual pupil—while still drawing inspiration from the numerous successful techniques used by the world's best golfers. This approach has proven effective, as Kevin has helped coach golfers who have won state championships and competed at the collegiate and professional level.

The techniques that Lauren Birkel imparts to her trainers are the same ones she used on herself while preparing for and completing the rigorous Ironman World Championships in 2005 and 2011, as well as the France-held International Triathlon Union Long Course World Championships in 2007. With this history of achieving difficult goals, Birkel knows how to inspire students without commissioning a band of rabid coyotes to chase them while they run.
She and her many cotrainers use these thoroughly tested methods of motivation to push students toward healthier lives in one-on-one, small-group, and large-group training sessions. She decks out her indoor studios with all the necessary equipment for personal-training sessions and isn't afraid to lead all-outdoor boot-camp academies in the heat or rain.
With Mission: Metabolism, all students must first attend a Mission: Unbreakable session ($55) in order to boost mobility, flexibility, and baditude in preparation for the intensity of standard Mission: Metabolism classes ($219). Unbreakable sessions are held on Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:45 p.m. The three-week session is a required prerequisite, but you can decide how to schedule it: enjoy three weeks of Mission: Unbreakable followed by a standard session of Mission: Metabolism for up to seven weeks of bliss and burn, or do both simultaneously. Your three weeks of Mission: Metabolism intensive exercise will be capped with a week of active recovery time and a nutritionally minded trip to the grocer—the first step to implementing fat-burning meal plans. You'll also get a one-on-one goal-setting session with your trainer. Full-intensity Mission: Metabolism workouts are held on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 6 a.m., 6:45 a.m., and 6 p.m. at the Bay View location and at 9 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at the Mequon locale.
