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 to 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.

The staff teaches lessons at Jacksonville Beach and Huguenot Park for every experience level, from beginners to advanced boarders.

Pam Davis spends her days uniting body and mind with her services, which she cultivated skill in while attaining her certification in both massage therapy and the instruction of Kripalu-style Hatha yoga. Three times a week, she bends and stretches through asanas with students in 90-minute yoga sessions. With her remaining hours, she takes on the tensions that accumulate in any living body by blending myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, and therapeutic yoga, to name a few. When she takes evenings and weekends off, her digital doppelgänger continues her work via her relaxation CD. The 40-minute recording combines guided meditations, soft music, and naturally relaxing sounds such as the burbling of a stream or the laughter of baby chipmunks.
