This is THE place to go for women's exercise! YOUR effort determines how challenging or easy the workout is. If you are young and healthy and push yourself at every workout station, your heart-rate will be up and you'll be sweating in a few minutes. If you are older and cannot tolerate vigorous exercise, the program is flexible enough that you need not worry about injury. The Curves program targets all muscle groups and includes stretching after the 30-minute workout to increase the benefits of the exercise and increase flexibility. Carol, the owner, is always there to guide you if you need help or advice. I have been going to Curves for Women at The Rotunda since it opened in 2004. This is the first form of exercise that I have been able to stick with for so long. One surprising advantage of exercising at Curves at The Rotunda is the great camaraderie and many laughs that make you feel "at home." I highly recommend it to all women. Try it once. You won't be disappointed.
The Curves workout is terrific...especially at the Hampden location. I have been a member of many fitness clubs and find this is the most personalized workout for the price anywhere. The staff members know your name and know what you can and cannot do...they'll even customize the workout to fit your needs. All people feel welcome and there are members all all ages, sizes, and races...and all are welcomed by both staff and other members. Everyone is encouraged and encouraging. The results come if you put in the effort....there are so many sucess stories. I have attended many clubs where the staff spend their time talking with friends and don't even try to get to know you...or you have to pay extra for personalized attention. But not at Curves. All clubs get members to commit to a year or more membership with automatic payments and most members appreciate the convenience and the "nudge" to keep working out. Try it, it's the easiest way to get and stay fit and healthy.
What a delightful way to exercise! The Rotunda Curves is great. I like the staff...as well as the comraderie of the members. The place seems to be a great meeting place where people from all walks of life are getting together with a common goal...to get healthy. This Curves,especially,seems to have a great cross-section of people...and I like that. The staff will offer positive suggestions and correct you if you're doing the machines incorrectly...they remind you that it's to your benefit to use the machines correctly ,that you have done the important thing...have gotten yourself there. They also offer encouragement to members and seem to be sensitive to whether or not they want to excercise quietly or be part of a more vocal group. I've been to lots of exercise places and really like that about this place. This Curves is a good place to be and I,for one,feel very fortunate to have found it.
