Exercisers at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a 30-minute 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 to manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use the gym-goer’s own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches ability, 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. Between each hydraulic machine stands a recovery station—a board on which ladies can walk, jog, or run in place to keep heart rates high and calories burning throughout the workout.
Each visit invites limbering ladies to move around a circuit that positions machines inward, so exercisers will 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 rates, burns calories, and allows women to meet new friends, arrange girls’ nights out between labored breaths, or plan wardrobes of revealing bikinis for their newly svelte doppelgänger action figures.
