Curves offers a range of women’s gym specialty classes, from lower-intensity Balance and Body Basics classes, to higher-intensity Cardio and Boxing classes, that combine strength training, cardio, and stretching. With a wide range of classes available, you can always find a program that works for you.  And as a member of Curves, you can take as many classes as you’d like.

Every class at Curves is a group fitness class. Our classes are designed for groups and incorporate the circuit and the help of a professional Curves coach to make sure you’re getting the most out of your workout. 30 minutes a day is all you need to enjoy the numerous health benefits of exercise.

Curves hydraulic resistance machines are ideal for women of any fitness level to achieve results. The machines are built to create resistance that intensifies with effort and helps to improve stability and create a strong core.

Exercising if you have osteoporosis means finding the safest and most enjoyable activities for your overall health and amount of bone loss, so there’s no single best exercise for osteoporosis.1 Strength training exercises, such as the Curves workout, are often the exercises recommended for people with osteoporosis because regular exercise is essential for treating and preventing osteoporosis. Stability and balance exercises are also beneficial to better prevent falls, so our Balance class and Boxing classes are great options to help improve your stability. As with all medical conditions, if you have osteoporosis and you’re thinking of taking up or returning to exercise, please consult your physician.

Some exercises are inappropriate for women with endometriosis but engaging in regular physical exercise can have protective effects against endometriosis as it increases antioxidant and inflammatory markers within your body.2 As with all medical conditions, if you have endometriosis and you’re thinking of taking up or returning to exercise, please consult your physician.

There are many key health benefits of exercise that you’ll enjoy when you join your local Curves gym for women and attend classes regularly.  Benefits include building muscle, improving flexibility, boosting your metabolism, and burning fat. Combined with the balanced and sustainable Curves Nutrition and Weight Management program, you’ll see permanent results and set the stage for a healthier, more active future, empowering you to live the life you want.

No. Many women are afraid that if they lift weights, they will get bulky. Resistance training exercises, like the Curves workout, will help you get stronger but won’t make you “bulk up.” With strength training, you may add a few pounds in the short term — because muscle is more dense than fat — but that muscle will contribute to a leaner and healthier you. What’s more, if you don’t preserve your muscles with strength training, you will lose about a 3-5% per decade after age 30.3 Strength training is a key component of a full body workout that can help you lose weight, get healthier and enjoy a more active lifestyle.

Though there are many diets and exercise trends that come and go, one of the most reliable ways to lose weight is to eat healthily and exercise. The Curves workout, combined with our Nutrition and Weight Management program, is a great way to set yourself up for success in losing weight. Plus, you will have a Curves coach to offer motivation and support to help keep you on track.

The Curves women’s gym workout is designed to strengthen your whole body in just 30-minutes and combines strength training, cardio, and stretching to improve your cardiovascular health and increase your flexibility, too. If you’re new to exercise or it’s been some time since you were active regularly, our lower-intensity Curves Balance classes are ideal for improving stability and creating a strong core. If you’d like to focus more on strength-based functional movements which emphasize arms, legs and core, our medium to lower-intensity Body Basics women’s gym classes may be ideal for you. Contact your local Curves club to find out which strength training class is right for you.

Yes and no. Strength training is a type of resistance training, so all strength training is resistance training. Resistance training means you’re building muscle by overloading the muscles—whether from your own weight, free weights, a resistance band or a machine — but building muscle isn’t the main goal of resistance training, increasing strength is the primary goal.

The best way to stay fit and healthy is to eat healthily and exercise regularly. The Curves workout, combined with our three-phase Nutrition and Weight Management program, is a great way to maintain your health and fitness. Plus, you will have a Curves coach to offer motivation and support to help keep you on track.

That depends on several factors, including your personal health goals, your age, existing medical conditions, and how quickly you want to see results. The World Health Organization recommends 150 minutes of exercise per week.4 To achieve this, working out at Curves would be three to four 30-minute sessions, plus one or two 30-minute walks per week.
