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 six-week membership and Zumba Circuit class package at Curves, with twelve Salem-area locations (an $85.50 total value). The package includes the following:
- Six Curves Circuit classes with Zumba (a $12 value)
- Six-week unlimited pass to Curves (a $73.50 value)
- Complimentary water bottle
Each noncompetitive Curves facility invites female fitness-seekers to move through a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Shunning cumbersome weight stacks, the hydraulic gadgets adapt to each exerciser's body weight and fitness level to complement her individual abilities, subsequently decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. And because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing unsuspecting grapefruit. Experienced trainers are always nearby to help clients manage their machine maneuvering, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues to let women know when it's time to move on to the next station or break for an air viola solo.
Curves' Zumba courses take the vanilla workout circuit and infuse it with the raspberry swirl of Latin-inspired dance fitness. During classes, limbering ladies alternate between active one-person dance floors and the usual circuit of low-impact machines. Exhilarating tunes keep participants moving, ensuring that heart rates don't drop even as beats do. The fun and welcoming setting hosts a complete aerobic and strength-training workout where women can meet new friends, arrange a girls' night out between labored breaths, or plan a wardrobe of revealing bikinis for a new line of self-portrait action figures.
