“I was sick, & desperate to lose weight! 

I wrote the letters T.I.M.S. on the back of my hand. Stands for Tight In My Skin - to stop me from opening the pantry or fridge thinking I was overeating.

That wasn’t the problem & Curves Complete helped me sort out my food portions and I have never looked back. 

Thanks to Curves, I feel healthier & happier”

Amanda's Story

Heathier, fitter and happier mum

AMANDA

Club: Morisset

Age: 31

Weight Lost: 15 kg

 

I have been a member at Curves Morisset for many years but it wasn’t until the last two years that I really used my membership to its full potential. I had just had my third baby in three and a half years and with each pregnancy I had added extra pounds and with this came more and more health concerns including bursitis and hypothyroidism. I have been going to the gym every weeknight at 6:30 pm, leaving my three children under 6 at home with my husband when he comes home from work. I managed to lose 15 kg, tone up and get rid of my bursitis. In the process I have also reduced my medication for my thyroid condition and become much healthier, fitter and a happier mummy for my three kids.

Zania's Story

 

Nothing is impossible: I have kicked all the bad habits

 

ZANIA

Club: Morisset

Age: 31

Weight Lost: 19.8kgs

CM Lost: 106cm

 

After years of battling my weight, things finally came to a halt when I found myself tipping the scales at 103 kg. Along with health issues that included pre-diabetes, food intolerance’s and high cholesterol. I had also been fighting anxiety and depression since I moved to Australia from New Zealand when I was 21. Food and alcohol were a comfort to me. After getting married, I continued to live on junk food and alcohol. Shortly after my son’s first birthday, I was diagnosed with post-natal depression and was put on prescription medications. As much as I tried losing weight, it was not happening. A year later I was pregnant again. I was overweight, suffering severe sciatica and I was struggling with the day-to-day needs of being a wife and mum. In 2015, a doctor told me I had a number of food intolerance’s including wheat, gluten, soy, dairy and peanuts. She said I was pre-diabetic and that I needed to do something about my lifestyle or I would not see my kids grow up. That was a huge shock for me.

January this year, I was at the Morisset show where Chris Ducker had set up a stall promoting Curves Morisset. I talked with Chris, who offered me three free weeks and after giving her my details, I walked off thinking nothing more of it. The following Monday, Chris phoned me and I reluctantly agreed to go in for a consultation. I thought Curves was for older ladies, but after my consultation I signed up because Chris seemed to really believe I could get my life back with the kind of program Curves offered. Soon after, I entered the 12 Week Challenge but half-way through the challenge I fell off the wagon. I went on a huge bender and eating plates of my old “comfort foods” and when I awoke the next day, I felt as though I had been hit by a bus. At our challenge meeting that night, I spoke to one of my coaches, Cheryl, and told her what I had done. She encouraged me to write down the pros and cons of my food choices. That same night, the challenge group talked about food hangovers and realised the kind of eating I had just engaged in was not worth it. Now my confidence and self-esteem have never been higher. My life could not be better since I have kicked all the bad habits. I barely drink these days and stay away from highly processed and fast foods. My depression and anxiety plus the diabetes are in the past, along with all the medications. I wake every day feeling great because my dream of believing in myself, helped by my coaches and members at Curves Morisset, has become a reality. I have achieved the “impossible.”

Sue's Story

Determination improved overall well-being

Club: Morisset

Age: 64

CM lost: 72 cm

Weight Lost: 14 kg

 

Curves at Morisset saved my life. Not only was I overweight when I joined, but I had serious health problems. I was listening to doctors and taking medication that would only mask the problems, causing other problems that needed more medication.  There seemed to be no end of doctor and specialist appointments. Starting my journey with Curves Morisset was a big step for me because I had never been on any type of food plan and I didn’t exercise. From the time that I started my journey with Curves Morisset, the support and coaching that I have been given over the last two years has given me the motivation to not only continue with Curves Complete but also the realization that this really works and I feel fantastic.  Doctors told me the continuous pain in my right leg was coming from my spine and recommended a cortisone injection, but when the doctor told me losing weight would help, I cancelled the injection as well as the booked arthroscope and joined Curves. At that time, I suffered also from asthma, constant urinary tract infections and celiac disease. I was tired of taking medications and antibiotics and felt they were taking a toll on my body. I was also physically tired and lacked the energy to enjoy my five grandchildren. I was determined to lose the weight to improve all my health issues.  I was 72 kg when I joined Curves and today I am 58 kg, I have lost 72 cm and 6.4 per cent of body fat and I am now a size 10 down from a size 14! If that isn’t enough, I no longer take constant rounds of antibiotics and other prescription medications and I can now look after my grandchildren. There is no better result than to not have to take pain killers and not to have to undergo intrusive procedures that for me is and has been the best part of my journey since I have joined Curves Morisset.

"My major deterrent was me, I simply wasn't in a place where I believed I could improve my health, wellbeing and mobility."

“Having got to my Goal Weight in May2014 after a long time of being overweight and unfit, my testimonial speaks clearly of regular exercise, and for me that means the Curves Circuit.

I find the Curves coaches all very cheerful and inspirational.”

I wanted to be healthy again!

“I had already started to lose weight when I joined Curves.  Once I joined Curves, I learnt about nutrition and toning my body.

Curves has been great for weight loss and I now feel healthy!”

Thanks Curves Morisset”

Margaret's Story

Trimmed, toned, taut and terrific!

 

MARGARET

Club: Morisset

Age: 78

CM lost: 26 cm

Weight Lost: 4 kg

 I have been a member of Curves since 2007 when I was 69 years old. I have always been an active person, I’ve raised a large family, worked and moved to the Morisset Peninsular in 1987. I have a motivated, early-rising, competitive, road racing cyclist husband who gets me out and about early. I was walking 4 – 5 kilometers, 5 days a week, every morning. When Curves opened locally, I decided that I should “give it a go.” That decision was a positive life changing challenge. One of the questions asked of me when I first joined Curves was, “what are your goals?” Answer: “I would like to lose 5 kg” Well I never did attain that goal BUT I am a steady weight at 56 kg (I was 60 kg) and I have lost 26 cm. I am trim, toned, taut and terrific! As well as strong, fit, healthy, energised, motivated and I don’t puff when running up stairs! Chris Ducker and her wonderful staff at Morisset Curves, keep us motivated, keen and entertained. My closest circle of friends are the girls who are with me at 6:30 am – 5 days a week. We socialise frequently, coffee and outings and we laugh a lot. I also have two daughters and a granddaughter who attend Curves at Nambucca Heads so  it’s a family affair. I have now completed 2220 workouts! I had always whinged that walking was either too hot, too cold, too many dogs and never a toilet nearby! Curves allows you to work at your own pace, encouraging you to work harder for positive results, using the Curves Smart tag keeps you motivated. Once a person achieves their results it encourages them to greater effort AND it’s never too hot, too cold, too wet, too many dogs & there’s ALWAYS a toilet when you need one!

What Motivates Us?

 
What Motivates Us and Do We Really Need the Power of Why?

In Tokyo, under the Ginza railway station, there is a famous restaurant run by Jiro.

The spotlight is obviously on Jiro, because of his Michelen-star status.

Among all the restaurants in the world, few restaurants get the privilege of getting an extremely high rating in the food industry. And in this unassuming 10 seat restaurant, Jiro doesn’t work alone. Instead there are a host of helpers that seem to be almost invisible.

Some of them simply chop the veggies.
Some of them take out the garbage.
Some of them make sure the rice is right.

Why would you?

Why would you go about cutting vegetables and moving sticky rice for years on end, with no perceptible reward in sight. Sure, you may well become a sushi chef, but it’s a long ten-year journey. So why bother? And at least until recently, a large part of the East didn’t understand the West.

The West was obsessed with why.

Because WHY brings a sense of deadline or end purpose

When you were really young, you never questioned why, did you?
Why did you learn to speak your native language?
Why not learn Cantonese instead?

A lot of our very early learning is not dominated by why. And with the East, just as in the West, the WHY does come up. Kids grow up to be curious and ask WHY.
But in the East, they’re told to simply obey and the results will come. So the goal becomes not so much to find the answer, but to find the teacher. And the teacher has a system, and the results come from that teacher and system.

WHY is a natural question, but not a particularly important one

When you ask WHY, it may well be to satisfy a curiosity. But often the WHY comes more from the urgency.

Why are we doing this?
Why will this benefit me?
Why, Why and Why?

And even when the answer is satisfactory, the urgency remains.

But if you’re a sushi chef, the goal is to learn from the teacher. The WHY slides a bit into oblivion.

And while all this stuff about sushi-chefs is important, it’s also important to note that WHY does help.

Knowing WHY you’re doing something gives the something a sense of purpose.
Does that help us achieve our goals?

Not necessarily. We step into a task with great vigour and then we lose our way, despite knowing WHY we’re supposed to do something.

WHY is nice.
It helps us understand purpose. But it can be overrated.

So What does it take to Motivate Us? Habit…yes…habit!
Coming up with rituals or habits will get you what you are looking for, fitness, health, reduce the waistline, whatever is your Why.

Successful Curves members don’t worry about the Why, they create a habit. Margaret G, for instance, has completed over 2200 workouts.  How did she do it? Habit. Margaret turns up every morning at 6:30am, she rarely misses. 

How about Amanda R? Amanda has three young children, she waits until her husband gets home from work and heads to Curves. She is at the club most days at 6:30pm, gets her workout in, no problems.

What have these two members done? They have created a habit and stuck to it. Have they achieved their respective health & fitness goals? The Why they started in the first place? You bet. This is just two examples of many more members achieving their Why.

If you’re having problems getting to your Why, start with marking yourself in your diary and stick to it. You are important…and no one is going to do it for you.

Yours in good health, happiness...& creating your own healthy habits,
Chris and the Team :)

CURVES ~ Ideal exercise for PREGNANCY

Curves Workout & Pregnancy

The Curves 30-minute workout combines smooth, hydraulic resistance with low-impact aerobic activity. Similar in movement to water aerobics, this strength-training and cardio workout is safe and effective for women of all ages and fitness levels, including women who are pregnant. As with any exercise during pregnancy, some modifications and precautions are necessary.

A Complete Exercise Program

The Australian Physical Activity Guidelines recommends that pregnant women get at least 30 minutes of exercise most-if not all-days of the week, incorporating activities that strengthen the muscles as well as the cardiovascular system. The Curves program combines the five components of a complete workout into each session: warm-up, strength-training, aerobics, cool-down and stretching. Many Curves facilities use CurvesSmart technology, which can be programmed to keep your workout at specific level of effort.

Getting Started

Low-impact exercise during pregnancy can increase circulation, improve balance, reduce aches and pains and prevent injury from falls. If you were not already exercising when you became pregnant and want to begin a routine, start slowly. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends that you work at a reasonable pace, dress comfortably and drink plenty of water. Whether you are new to Curves or a veteran, work with your circuit coach to set specific goals and check in weekly to discuss your progress.

The Curves Equipment

Specially designed for women, the Curves low-impact, hydraulic resistance equipment uses pushing and pulling motions rather than lifting and lowering of weights, which means it is safe to use throughout pregnancy. However, exercises that compress the stomach should be avoided, so skip the ab-back machine during the third trimester or earlier if your range of motion becomes limited. Avoid the leg press if you feel off-balance or have difficulty getting on or off the machine.

Make the HARDER Choice...

Make the HARDER Choice...
Get Active 
Eat Healthy
Be Fit

It's often said the harder choice & the right choice are often the same. You can choose to take the escalator or the stairs. You can choose to hit the snooze button or get up immediately.
Take the time now, to assess where you're at! Grab your diary and program the ME time for your health & wellness.

Remember Curves takes just 30 mins for a total body workout. Cardio & Strength training at the same time!

So...Make the Harder Choice...and make it this moment!

Congratulations to Members of the Week ~ Daphne & Renai :D

Congratulations Margaret on achieving 2200 workouts!

Well Done Bree, that's 2.5kgs (5 tubs of margarine) in Body Fat lost :D
