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 $30, you get a one-month membership to Curves (a $171.36 value). Choose from the following locations: Kelowna, Kelowna East, Osoyoos, Penticton, Summerland, Vernon, and Westbank.
Members at Curves, a fitness centre designed exclusively for women, rotate around a 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. Circuit coaches are always nearby to help manage participants’ machine manoeuvring and muscle making. The hydraulic machines use the exerciser's own body weight and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches abilities and decreases 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 bodies perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like they can.
For 30 minutes, 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 it's time to move on to the next station. The complete aerobic and strength-training workout raises heart rates and burns up to 500 calories while allowing women to meet new friends, arrange a girls' night out between laboured breaths, or plan a wardrobe of revealing bikinis for their newly svelte doppelgänger action figures.
