When compared to mixed-gender populations, the members of all-female lizard species are stronger, happier, and 10 times more likely to be named Trisha. Today's deal brings together likeminded ladies to increase fitness, morale, and results: for $10, new clients get a two-week unlimited basic membership (a $22 value) to Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women. This Groupon is only valid for membership at the Riviera Plaza location, a Curves Shining Star franchise with the latest Curves Smart technology. Should you wish to purchase another membership after the two weeks, this Groupon covers the normal membership signup fee, an additional $199 value.

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 and promote healthy weight management, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle toning. 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.

For 30 minutes, you'll move around a circuit that positions machines inward so that you'll have a chance to laugh with your fellow fitness frontierswomen. Because you're all at different stations, you won't feel like you're in competition with anyone but yourself—and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music will include cues to let you know when it's time to move on to the next station. You'll raise your heart rate and burn calories during a complete aerobic and strength-training workout. Meet new friends and plan a girls' night out between labored breaths, or invite along some of your current friends as friends instead of as shields against the creep ogling you at the juice bar.

Reviews

Across the nation, women are singing the praises of Curves. Epinions users give the fitness center 3.5 stars, while Viewpoints reviewers give it 4.18:

  • Curves Fitness Center for women has ongoing support and encouragement..something not found in every fitness center. Curves is a place for all women...size, shape, age doesn't matter. What does matter is improving ones [sic] individual health and fitness and overall lifestyle. – nrscaree, Viewpoints
  • Having different stations to work at, not only expels bordom [sic], but the different stations keep your interest peaked. The music is upbeat and after a while, you can recognize the songs and really get into the beat. I also was impressed with the attentiveness of the trainers. – harvardmom, Viewpoints
  • Oh, sure, it's hard work - exercise does NOT come natural to me but the encouragement of others is most helpful. The knowledge of the equipment of the employees is also a huge benefit. – tart12341234, Viewpoints
