What You'll Get
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 like-minded ladies to increase fitness, morale, and results: for $15, you get 30 days of unlimited access to Curves, valid at either the East 70th Street or North Market Street location (a $56 value).
Members 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 manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches 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.
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 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 when 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.
