Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine-maneuvering and muscle-making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottles to create resistance that matches 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.
For 30 minutes, ladies move around a circuit that positions machines inward so that they’ll have a chance to share laughs and secret handshakes with fellow fitness frontierswomen. Because each workout warrior is at a different station, the only competition that exists is with one’s own burgeoning muscles. A soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues that tell participants it’s time to move on to the next station. The complete aerobic and strength-training workout raises heart rate and helps burn calories while allowing women to meet new friends, arrange a girls’ night out between labored breaths, or plan a wardrobe of revealing bikinis for their newly svelte doppelgänger action figures.
