HI guys and welcome back to my blog! Today I am talking fitness. OK, let me stop you. I know there’s a ton of judgement that comes in when I say that I went to Curves® to workout. They invited me to attend their 25th Birthday. Let me tell you they are throwing on heck of a party- the largest Birthday party ON RECORD. I really enjoyed this event and meeting some local blogger babes too. I get invited to a lot of events. However, due to the fact I still have a day time job I can’t make it to everything.
So I walk in and think- these machines are going to do nothing for me. I train with a personal trainer that does international competitions and this will be a piece of cake. Birthday cake, haha. Any who it was actually harder than I thought it would be. I broke a sweat, definitely got my heart rate up and I was burning calories!
It’s basically a simple 30-minute workout. You spend 30 seconds on each machine (giving it your all) then 30 seconds on a mat doing jumping jacks, butt kicks side crunches etc… You get the idea. So you repeat each machine 2x. That’s how you get to your full 30 minute workout. Don’t get me wrong– it was a FULL BODY workout!! There’s no certain time you have to do come in. You can jump in anytime you want. You get a card with your membership that goes into each machine that has your level of intensity pre-programed. Curves® is a lot more high tech than I thought.
It didn’t bother me one bit that there were no mirrors. I don’t like seeing men when I workout. So that was a nice break feeling from a typical gym. I did wear makeup, that’s just my schedule. I usually workout at the end of the day. Find a location near you HERE.
Something that I was refreshed on while there (need to get better at) is stretching. At the end of the workout you spend another 5-10 min on their stretching jungle gym. Stretching is great for circulation, flexibility and strength training buying muscle. Curves® can help with meal planning and they offer different varieties of workouts too. Kick boxing and Yoga relaxation classes are a few other they offer.
THEY GIVE BACK
They are gifting 25 female Veterans $25,000 each to open their own Curves location. I think that it pretty amazing to give these women a head start into a fun ownership where it seems to me you get to hang out with friends.
