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 likeminded ladies to increase fitness, morale, and results: for $34, new clients get a two-month unlimited membership and one weight management session at the Gull Road Curves location (a $195 value).
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the tie-dispensers that are accidentally built in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic-resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced circuit coach is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness levels 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.
The 30-minute workouts use machines that face inward to decrease competition, increase the fun, and raise heartbeats to burn calories during the complete aerobic and strength-training workout. A soundtrack of fun, upbeat music will include cues for when it's time to move on to the next station. 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 guy ogling you at the juice bar. Included with this Groupon is one weight management session, certified by the Cleveland Clinic. Additional sessions are not included in the two-month unlimited membership.
