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.
In my many years of trying to stay fit I have joined countless health clubs and find myself enthusiastic and compliant for the first few months then the excuses start to mount--bad hour for class, too crowded and noisy etc Then last year I tried Curves in Hampden. I have not only increased my attendance time since starting but have also lost pounds and inches. Why the difference--no fixed "class" times, can go nearly anytime during the day. Work at your own pace. Instructors are helpful but not overbearing. And most of all it has become a family. We are all there for the same reason for the hour or so and the friendly chatter makes it all the more delightful..Try it, you'll love it.
I've really been enjoying my 6+ months at Curves, especially the Monday night Zumba classes! It's a very non-threatening place to start a fitness regimen, especially if you're joining because you feel that you're out of shape and could stand to lose a few! Women here are of all ages, shapes, weights, and fitness levels. It's a collegial and non-competitive environment. No spandex required :-) You are your own &quot;competition&quot; and the staff is very good at helping you to measure your progress over time through computerized tracking and periodic weigh-ins and body measurements.
I've been coming to this curve for a few months now, and have really come to enjoy my membership with them. I must admit that at first, I was hesitant about coming there, considering many of the members are older than I am, but when I refocused my thoughts, I realized 1) that the workout was about me, 2) many of them are more in shape then I am lol, and 3) it really is a place to come without having to feel self-conscious about who I am, and how much I could or could not endure. SInce then, my progress has been great, so long as I show-up, which is definitely on me. No regrets!
I have been a member of Curves in Hampden since 2009. I've found that in order to achieve the results you aspire to obtain; a three day workout session is necessary. My goal weight has been fulfilled and I enjoy every workout. The atmosphere is fun and energetic. The Curves staff and also my fellow workout clients are helpful and encouraging too. So COME TO CURVES IN HAMPDEN AT THE ROTUNDA!!
I really like this place. The most impressive thing is how clean it is. The workers are constantly cleaning. I have been to a lot of gyms and this is the cleanest. The clientele come to work out and not to socialize. However, most of them are friendly and say good morning. I get a good workout there.
This is a wonderfully affordable way to stay in shape and the supportive village atmosphere keeps you coming back. The staff is really knowledgeable and helpful and I hope it stays in the area forever as it's my best hope of staying healthy.
Curves at the Rotunda is great. I see people I've gotten to know and like, I can go almost any time and the half hour routine suits me really well.
I go here every week. What I appreciate about this gym is that the athmosphere is really conjusive for lifting weights. I love it here definitely.
