Curves for Women
Relatively new to the UK, the Curves for Women gym chain originates from Harlington, Texas, where they first opened in 1992. They are famour for their 30 minute fitness plan.
Our Curves for Women gym review focuses on their 9,000 plus fitness clubs throughout the world that offer a unique womens only gyms venue that focuses on both exercise and weight loss.
Curves for Women gyms have a different approach to fitness training to many other gyms, focusing specifically on 30 minute fitness training workouts as the foundation for their health and fitness programme. The gyms offer a warm, friendly and supportive workout environment, and a specially tailored exercise programme that enables you to give your body a total aerobic and strength training workout in 30 minutes. Their unique approach enables the clubs to address two big concerns for women that can often put them off exercise:
- Lack of time - many women have trouble fitting a long workout session into their busy lives
- Privacy - many women feel uncomfortable exercising around men
Suitable for all ages and levels of fitness, the club's specialised 30-minute workout session includes all the key elements of a fitness regime in one go:
- Resistance training
- Cool down
The workout uses a series of hydraulic resistance machines, which are easy to operate and provide steady resistance throughout your exercise session. You can also easily adjust the machines to your own level of ability, enabling you to move quickly around the circuit.
Women often enjoy the unintimidating, helpful and encouraging environment provided by the clubs, and many even find that they are making better progress towards their fitness goals than ever before.
