i was a member until i learned that the founder does not support the right of a woman to choose and in fact funnels hundreds of thousands of dollars to prevent that right from remaining legal. this fact brings in many women who share his beliefs, but also drives many away. the workout was not effective enough for me to contirbute to his cause. good luck in your efforts! my aunt lost over 60 lbs in a year at a Curves.

I am really disappointed to here about Diane.
but, I have already paid my money, so might as well stick with it.

I go to curves and like it for the most part. although, I do run on the "recovery" stations, and get in trouble for it. But its the only way to get myheart rate up. I am still in my 20's and healthy.

Has it helped you?

Are you having success with this? I like the idea of a women only gym but don't like how regimented it looks.

Really not very regimented. Only downside is not having options like a treadmill or other cardio equipment. But man I do get a workout and can feel it later!

I just stopped doing Curves coz it hurts my back. I asked the lady to watch me work the machines and she assured me that I was doing them correctly - but man, did my back hurt. Had to stop.

I worked at cuvers for over a year and I was shocked at how many injuries orccured, - neck, knee, back, hip etc.... although the founder claims that the machines fit everyone they do not. Please talk to your PT, or chiro before joining.

I concur!

I USED to belong and got injured. I knew of a woman who passed on the machines. Curves is a franchise and they hire people with no real training.

The woman passed OUT on the machines she did not die.

My mother who is 56 just joined Curves and is enjoying it quite a lot. She likes having the rotating stations and is intimidated by a regular gym environment. She is already in fairly good condition though and does a lot of walking (about 140lbs and 5'6"). I will have to warn her about the injuries, thanks for the info!

OOHH! I am pissed

So I joined b/c I do not like to work out in front of men. SO I go to my curves beside my office today and it has moved outside into the middle of a food court in the mall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Most of my co-workers eat there. no way in Hell!! am I working out in the middle of everyone like that. goes against the whole principle of joining Curves.
