We understand how busy life can be and finding time to exercise can be tough. But with Curves, 30 minutes 4 times a week is all you need.

The Curves circuit is an efficient full body workout designed specifically for women. In just 30 minutes, you work every major muscle group and burn up to 2000 kilojoules through a proven program of strength training, cardio, and stretching. Plus you can join the circuit at any time, from any station and start working out when it suits you (within standard opening hours).

The circuit is made up of hydraulic resistance machines, which are designed to create resistance that increases with effort. As you get stronger, you can push harder and the machines will respond with more resistance making them perfect for women of any fitness level to continually achieve results.

Our Body Basic circuits will add variety to the traditional Curves circuit. Workouts include simple movements with multiple levels of difficulty so that all of our members can enjoy their workouts.

We pride ourselves on the service we provide for our members. Some of the benefits you will receive include monthly coaching sessions to keep you on track and a friendly and community type atmosphere where you will feel welcome at all times.

No matter your level of fitness, size, shape or age, you will find the variety and support you are looking for to help you work towards your health and wellbeing goals at Curves Belconnen.

Read about the real life success stories of our amazing members at Curves Belconnen!

Cheryl - Member since November 2015

Cheryl was slim and fit at the beginning of 2011. Then life started “shoveling” her difficult times. Work, family and health stress led to stress eating and by 2015 Cheryl looked at herself in the mirror and was horrified to be 89.5kg.

Cheryl joined Curves Jamison, determined to be her old self. She now uses exercise to deal with stress (3x per week at Curves plus walking) and has changed her eating habits – high protein and low carbohydrate. With new medication for her diabetes, Cheryl has lost 13kg and no longer requires insulin. She drinks Bragg’s cider vinegar and 3-3.5 litres of water a day.

Now weighing in at 72.5kg, that’s a loss of 17kg since November 2015! Cheryl’s next goal is to weigh 70kg by June 2017.

I would like to thank the staff at Curves for all their support”.

Susan - member since February 2015 and just completed the BioAge challenge

I started my Curves Complete and Bio-Age journey back in September after having returned from traveling for three months. I was frustrated with being in my early 60's and feeling frumpy and uncomfortable in my clothes. Initially the results of my Bio-Age test was only one year less than my actual age. I was determined to improve on that. With the encouragement of the staff at Curves Jamison I really enjoyed my sessions at the gym and found that after the initial few weeks my strength improved significantly. It was only a few weeks later that I realised my clothes were fitting better and in fact I was able to fit into dresses that I had not been able to fit into on my return from holidays. I was attending the gym at least three times a week and some weeks got in four sessions and the more I did the more I wanted to do.

Ann - member since April 2015 and just completed the 8 week BioAge challenge

Our lovely member Ann recently completed the BioAge program with amazing results - losing nearly 10 years from her biological age! This is what Ann has to say:

"I've loved doing the BioAge program and I've loved the results. The program and the weekly coaching are great motivators. Brought out my inner competitor (against myself). Hoping that I've established some great habits.

Thank you to Mariana and Marie Ann for being wonderful coaches."

Meredith - Member since February 2016

I hadn't worn a dress in around 30 years, as I had been overweight all that time. Since joining Curves in February 2016 and losing 14.5 kilos (and 50 + cms), I decided it was time to get a nice dress for my nephew's wedding. I hadn't seen a lot of family and friends who were attending the wedding from out of town and was stunned with the amount of compliments I received. My own family is also very proud of my achievements.

Thanks again to Anita and the wonderful team at Belconnen, I could never have done it without you all.

Gael - Member since May 2016


I came to Curves Belconnen when I came out of hospital following major depression. I was so tired and everything was an effort, but the women there - especially Anita, Justine and Mariana - embraced me with such warmth and kindness that it helped give me the strength and motivation to keep coming back. Going to Curves and getting fit again was instrumental in me getting well again. I am so grateful to the wonderful team there!

Toni - Member since November 2014 and our Healthy and Inspirational 2016 Curvette Winner

“I can finally say I love the way I look and feel and my self-esteem has never been better.”

Thirty-five years ago at her wedding Toni wore a size 16 wedding dress, which was the smallest she had been until now. Three years ago she was at her heaviest weight of 127kg.

Having tried to lose weight all her life, Toni found that exercising often led to injury. She was taking many types of medication to deal with her health issues and found it difficult to prioritise her own health and exercise over her other work and family priorities.

Toni’s journey back to health began with her doctor. She managed to lose 25kg before joining Curves in November 2014. Thinking she had lost all the weight she could, Toni felt she only needed to exercise to tone up. She discovered through Curves Complete that the structure and meal plans of the program were perfect for her.

Within two weeks of starting Curves Complete Toni was taking no insulin and no blood pressure medication. For the first time in her life she looked forward to hopping on the scales each week. It took her three months to lose the final 13kgs.

Toni doesn’t need many of the medications she was previously taking. She now averages 85,000 steps a week and attends Curves three times a week.

Sarah - Member since July 2015 and our 2016 Inspirational Curvette Entrant

“I am loving this journey and feeling fantastic.”

Two years ago I was offered a wheelchair. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis when I was in high school but I managed to cope with it for many years. That was until 2013, while living in Melbourne with my husband I had a severe flare up. By the end of 2014 I had piled on the weight, unable to walk or move too much. I was lucky to get through a full day without needing to have a nap. I was unhappy.

By 2015, my husband and I packed up and moved back to Canberra for the support of family. July that year, my mother and I joined Curves Belconnen and I have never looked back. At the start I was only able to go once or twice a week and would have to skip many of the machines. However, the Curves coaches were so supportive, and with their help, I strengthened my joints and muscles. In February 2016, my mother and I decided to give the 12 Week Challenge a go. With the amazing support of our one-on-one weekly meetings, I learned how to eat right, stay focused and increased the amount of times I worked out – I lost 14.8kg. Today I feel fantastic; I wake up feeling energetic and able to go to the gym 5 – 6 times a week. Since joining Curves I have lost a total of 26.3 kg. I still have more to lose but I’m loving this journey and I am looking forward to seeing what I can achieve with my new energy and support that Curves Belconnen gives me.

Lyn - Member since August 2015 and our 2016 Senior Curvette Entrant

“Curves has lifted the cloud in my life.”

I joined Curves to aim for a healthy lifestyle and get off the vicious cycle of feeling down and hating getting older, gaining weight and no exercise. I’ve been a member of a number of gyms over the years and have successfully managed to keep my weight down. However, as I got older and approached my mid 60′s, I found it quite hard to stop the cycle of eating, then feeling guilty and hating the idea of getting old. It really took hold of me and my weight was going up fast. I believe I was quite depressed but really wanted to do something about it.

Crazy thing is, once I got involved in the Curves 12 Week Program, the cloud lifted and I never looked back. It wasn’t easy, but the support and enthusiasm of the staff especially my Curves coach, as well as the variety of programs offered at my Curves gym changed my life!

I’m reaping the huge benefits of a healthy lifestyle and I feel great. I’m now embracing my age and realise how lucky I am to be healthy, able to go to a gym and lead an active life.

Thank you my Curves team!

Muscle & Metabolism

Metabolism. Sounds familiar right? You know having a high metabolism is a positive thing. You also know a goal is to increase metabolism. But you might be wondering, why?

Let’s refresh our memory and answer the question, what is metabolism? Without going into university level scientific detail, metabolism is your body’s ability to break down food for energy and burn calories, even while you’re catching some Z’s. That’s right, burn calories while you’re resting! It’s a no brainer you want to increase your metabolism. The higher your metabolism, the more efficient your body is at breaking down food and burning more calories.

There are a few factors influencing your metabolism that you can’t control like your age, genetics, and your gender. That’s ok though, we can have an impact on a couple factors that largely influence metabolism, and those are physical activity level and lean muscle mass.

Increasing your physical activity will increase your body’s need for energy. This means your body will burn more calories for fuel and this will increase your metabolism.

Strength training requires a lot of energy and builds lean muscle mass. In order to repair the tiny tears created in your muscle fibers after we strength train, your body needs energy for that too. So, building lean muscle will rev up your metabolism.

Your Curves Workout includes strength training for every major muscle in your body. How convenient is that? At Curves, strength training occurs on the hydraulic machines. Check out these 5 tips to make sure you’re getting the most out of your workout and each machine!

-Learn to Love the Squat! You’ll strengthen large muscles so you can burn more calories on this machine compared to other machines. So while you’re burning calories and building your metabolism, you’ll also be building a firm backside, and who wouldn’t want that?

-Recovery Stations are for……Recovery!Use the recovery boards to do exactly that, recover. Rest your muscles so you’re ready to push hard on the next strength machine.

-Say NO to Gravity’s Help! On some machines, gravity wants to lend a helping hand by pulling the handles down for you, such as that pesky Shoulder Press/Lat Pull Down. Well, the more you let gravity help you, the less benefit you get in return. So, say thanks but no thanks. Instead, YOU do the work to get the reward!

-Always UseFullRange of Motion! You know the saying “less is more”? That can be true in some cases. While using the Curves Strength Machines aim for QUALITY over QUANTITY. Once you have great form and range of motion, and then pick up that speed!

-Last but NOT Least...Stretch! Stretch after your workout. It only takes 5 minutes and can help you increase your strength by up to 19%.
