To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape for Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating 30 minutes of strength-training drills—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each student's abilities. Then comes 25 minutes of cardio: the trainers might start novice exercisers with a walk on the treadmill or light elliptical training, and challenge more advanced exercisers to high-intensity interval-training sessions for enhanced results.

The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To track ladies' progress toward reaching their goals, the trainers measure their weight and body-fat percentage every two weeks.

Curves caters exclusively to women with a circuit of hydraulic-resistance machines that promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and alleviate arthritis. Thirteen toning and strength-training stations use bodyweight to create resistance matched to each user's fitness level, decreasing the chance of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean arms and legs perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making.
