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 $35, new clients get a two-month unlimited basic membership including enrollment fee to Curves locations, a $217 average value. Curves is a fitness center designed exclusively for women. Redeem your Groupon at one of 12 participating locations; membership is only valid at the location you choose. Each membership can be used toward unlimited visits and free weight-management classes with trained professionals.

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 weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. 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.

New clients only. Must be at least 18 to join and activate membership within 4 months of purchasing Groupon.

Reviews

Across the nation, women are singing the praises of Curves. Epinions users give the fitness center an average of 3.5 stars, while Viewpoints reviewers give it an outstanding 4.14 average:

  • 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

Curves

As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby, trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

In 2014, Curves partnered with celebrity fitness expert Jillian Michaels to design a new take on its traditional circuit. These workouts incorporate functional bodyweight exercises—each with modifications—into the existing sequence, providing a slightly more intense gym experience intended to jump-start metabolisms while still forging lean, toned muscles.

Customer Reviews

I love the owner, Gail and her commitment and dedication to her clients is outstanding. We are treated like family and it is so much fun to work out there.

It motivates me to move daily to reach my goals.
Kathleen H. · July 20, 2016
I just started this week. The owner is very involved in making the experience worth the investment by sharing the correct way to use each machine. If all fanchises are set up this way eveyone will be successful.
