We understand how busy life can be and that finding time to exercise can be tough. But with Curves, 30 minutes, four times per 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 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 what your level of fitness, size, shape or age is, at Curves Belconnen you will find the variety and support you are looking for to help you work towards your health and wellbeing goals.
CURVES BELCONNEN OWNER ANITA'S COMMITMENT TO YOU
Member to owner – how a health journey inspired me to take on a business journey
Twelve years ago, I was wedged firmly in the daily grind. I worked full time (and then some) in a stressful job and felt lethargic and flat most days.
Inspired to do something about my health, I entered Curves in Weston. Over the coming weeks I kept coming back for the customer service and community spirit. I’ll be honest, the workout was challenging, but the time flew by and I was able to give the workout my all because of the support network I was seamlessly accepted into. I found my tribe.
After a month I had lost centre metres from all over my body and I had gained a renewed enthusiasm for life and friends who are still dear to me.
With my new-found energy, the daily grind of my 9 to 5 (or should I say 7 to 7) became even more of a drag. I couldn’t ignore that I was not working in a place that filled my purpose. I had always wanted to be a small business owner, but I also wanted to wait until my three children were grown so I could commit fully to a business I was passionate about – I knew that working a purposeful role would be all consuming, and it is, but not in a bad way at all.
In 2008, I saw a notice that Curves Belconnen was on the market. From that moment, I knew I’d found my calling and through a whirlwind of ups and downs, of quitting my job and planning a trip to WACO Texas to do the Curves Owner training, I started my role as an owner of Curves Belconnen in September 2008.
At this point, I was one of a three-owner team where my contribution was to be a silent partner focusing on the financial side of the business – using my accounting degree. I was living part of my purpose and over the next few years I was driven to learn and grow to become the sole owner of Curves Belconnen and work directly with the amazing women who fulfil me every day.
To do this, I had to invest in myself. I had to embark on a path of continual learning. I had to gain knowledge and qualifications in the fitness and nutrition industry.
While this journey is mine, I can honestly say it has not been (and will never be) a solo journey. I have had so many teachers and collaborators over the years. I have had so many amazing staff, including one (Mariana)who is now a best friend and someone I look to like a business partner. Together we are gaining our Certificate 4 in Fitness, and we continually add more strings to our bows, including qualifications in wellness, pilates, yoga, zumba, counselling, mental health awareness, women’s health and sports nutrition.
All of this development is to serve my purpose of helping women live their best lives through fitness, nutrition and community. I am honoured to hear and witness countless stories of life and health improvements, everyday. This is why every day as a Curves business owner is fulfilling. Even on the tough days in business and life, I can smile and feel pride in what I do and who I come into contact with.
As I continue to train and grow, I am pleased that the Curves global franchise is also growing. There are exciting new developments and a continuous investment in research and development to understand and support women’s health. I am so very pleased to be a part of this community and I will continue to work hard to help improve the lives of women across Belconnen (and beyond).
Yours in Health and Happiness, Anita, Owner Curves Belconnen
