You don’t need to go to a club or be a Curves club member. In fact, MyCurves On Demand was designed to meet the health and fitness workout needs of women who don’t have access to a local Curves. MyCurves On Demand can be accessed on your laptop, tablet, smart phone or mobile device. It’s ready when you are! Stream the online workout videos or download them for offline use when you don’t have service. You can also watch MyCurves On Demand workout videos on your TV (refer to your device’s manual to learn how to do this via AppleTV, FireTV, Chromecast, or Roku).
We have a variety of classes available that combine strength training with functional movements, to target important muscle groups. Our total body workouts take you through warm-up, cardio, strength training, cool down and stretching. A Curves resistance band is included for a safe and effective workout at home.
You will be guided through workouts that will target all your major muscles. In between the strength training band exercises, you will perform functional moves to help improve your balance, flexibility, coordination, endurance, and stamina. After an upper body resistance band move, you will move to a functional exercise for 30 seconds. Next will be a resistance band move, which will work the lower body, and then back to a functional exercise again. Finally, we’ll focus on a resistance band move or functional exercise that works your core. This repeats throughout the workout.
During your workout, it’s important to maintain your intensity between the resistance band moves. Whether you are just starting out or you’re an exercise enthusiast, you can select the appropriate workout intensity and challenge yourself. The main thing to remember is that these moves are in place to maintain your heart rate. The focus during your workout should always be on the resistance band moves and any other strength training exercises.
No. With the MyCurves On Demand at home program, you can workout at YOUR level of intensity. The moves are demonstrated slowly so that everyone can see the proper form. Your goal is to work muscles fully during the 30-seconds of strength training. As you get stronger, you should find that you’re able to increase your reps slightly beyond what is demonstrated in the video. Be sure to check your heart rate, as indicated in the workout video, so that you maintain your target heart rate and remains in the proper zone. You’ll also notice lower-intensity modifications are provided for some of the higher-intensity moves for an option to target the same muscle groups.
You are just getting started. Much like the traditional Curves workout, you might not do a lot of repetitions as you are learning the movements. The transitions will come more easily with practice. Don’t worry about perfection, just go for progress. Our recommendation is that you review the Resistance Band Category and practice each move for greater ease with the transitions. The tutorials include Upper Body Strength Training, Core Moves, Lower Body Strength Training, Stretching, and the Resistance Tutorial. Remember, you know your body best. If there is a movement you cannot do, skip it. Just be sure to keep moving to maintain your heart rate.
All of the at-home workouts on MyCurves On Demand at home program are original and created exclusively for MyCurves On Demand by Curves program experts featuring Curves coaches – real women just like you!

To get the most out of the MyCurves On Demand at home workouts, we recommend using the high-quality Curves resistance band. A band is included with a standard MyCurves On Demand membership (Ts and Cs apply). Free trial memberships do not include the band but a link to purchase can be found here.
With over 30 years of research, Curves is a trusted brand in women’s fitness known for providing strength training, cardio, and stretching in an effective 30-minute format. The first month of our standard program comes with our high-quality resistance band that is designed to provide the critical strength training element that you may not find with other programs that are based around walking or cardio only. Our resistance band will protect you and maintain the integrity of our MyCurves On Demand Program. Free trial memberships do not include the band but a link to purchase can be found here.
Once you receive your confirmation email, you’ll have access to our welcome, introduction and tutorial videos and materials that you can review to get ready for your first online workout. You have full access to the entire library so you can take any class you’d like. When the coach is using the band during the class, feel free to replicate the move without the band.
If you purchased a standard price monthly or annual program subscription, it will take 2-6 business days for the band to arrive, once ordered. Free trial memberships do not include the band but a link to purchase can be found here.

Approximately every 10 minutes, you will be prompted to stop and check your heart rate. It is important to make sure you are working in your target heart rate zone throughout your workout. This will ensure that you are working safely, yet hard enough to maximize your results.
Generally, you should aim to do around 150 minutes of exercise per week. That means 5 days of at home, 30-minute MyCurves On Demand workouts. The World Health Organization recommends 150 minutes of exercise per week. To achieve this, working out at Curves would be three to four 30-minute sessions, plus one or two 30-minute walks per week.
To increase the resistance you will need to decrease the slack in the resistance band. In other words, shorten the length of the band that is being used during the exercise.
Using the Squat as an example, stand on the band with your feet hip distance apart and the band anchored with the middle of one foot. When you step on the band with the other foot, you can adjust the tension. If you want more resistance, you should have a lot of slack in the band between your feet. This will increase the tension on the band that is being used, which will provide greater resistance. If you want to decrease the resistance, you should have little or no slack in the band, between your feet. This will decrease the tension on the band being used, therefore decreasing the resistance. We also have a tutorial within the welcome videos showing each move and how to increase and decrease resistance throughout your workout.
Plus, you’ll find a great tutorial explaining how to increase and decrease your resistance with the band in our Welcome videos.
Work to YOUR level of intensity. The moves are demonstrated slowly so that everyone can see proper form. Your goal is to work muscles fully during that 30 seconds of strength training. That means that as you get stronger, you should find that you’re able to increase your reps slightly beyond what is demonstrated in the video. Be sure to check your heart rate as indicated in the workout video so that you maintain your target heart rate, in the proper zone.
While exercising, how you breathe can greatly impact how you feel during and after your workout. A general rule of thumb is to exhale and breathe out on exertion, this will allow for the breath to assist with energy and movement.
