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. Join likeminded ladies to increase your fitness, morale, and results with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a one-month unlimited basic membership (a $49 value) and four Zumba classes (a $20 value) at Curves (a $69 total value). Choose from three locations: on Bayou Boulevard, 6800 Hwy. 98 W, or in Milton.
Members at Curves—a fitness center designed exclusively for women—rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that work with the female physique to promote weight loss while protecting against osteoporosis and arthritis. The full circuit takes about 30 minutes to complete and faces exercisers inward so that they can share encouragement, laughs, and no-contact secret handshakes. A soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues that tell participants it's time to move on to the next station, and an experienced trainer is always nearby to help adjust machines to suit individuals' body weight and fitness level, decreasing their risk of soreness or injury.
Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, Curves' hydraulic gadgets guide limbs through push-and-pull motions instead, contributing to toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing grapefruits after years of being taunted by the blender. Half-hour Zumba classes infuse the circuit with Latin-inspired beats and dance moves, inviting attendees to shimmy off calories between bouts of machine-based strength training.
