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 Groupon brings together likeminded ladies to increase fitness, morale, and results: for $24, you get a one-month unlimited basic membership (a $44 value), unlimited access to Zumba Fitness classes (a $24 value), and a waived initiation fee (a $99 value) at Curves (a $167 total value). This Groupon is valid only at the Curves location in Nixa.
Members at Curves roll through 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 utilize body weight, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. For 30 minutes, limbering 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 occupies a different station, the only competition that exists is with one's own burgeoning muscles and mind.
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 rates and burns calories while allowing women to meet new friends or arrange a girls' night out between labored breaths. On top of standard circuit training, this Groupon also nets unlimited access to Zumba Fitness classes, courses which incorporate lively, Latin-infused dance moves to help women increase endurance and tone and tango with invisible friends.
