A good club is measured by it's members and the results. We have many members reaching workout milestones. Our longest standing member is Joy Clarke who has completed in excess of 1800 workouts. Joy has recounted her experience with Curves........
Well where to begin. I started Curves just over 5 years ago and have since completed over 1800 workouts. The benefits I have gained are incredible.
I started because after being diagnosed with osteoarthritis in both my hips was determined to increase my mobility and strength, and also to do something for me. I found that the improvement to my hips(less pain) happened in about six weeks and I was able to drastically reduce my pain medication.
I come to Curves just about every day, not that I am obsessed with losing weight, (not my ultimate aim) but just because of the sense of wellbeing I get after a workout. I now rarely take any medication and sleep much sounder.
The benefits to my overall health has been amazing. I am so much stronger and fitter and my mobility is fabulous, which makes it easier to cope with the everyday hassles of life. I have lost a couple of kilos (a bonus) and have lost a lot of centimetres, my body much more toned than it used to be. My Doctor has also hinted at reducing my blood pressure medication, and encourages me to keep doing what I am doing-going to Curves.
The friendships I have made both with Staff and Members is also a bonus, I love being part of the Curves Sisterhood. I must thank all the Staff very much for their genuine concern about people, having helped me through a couple of difficult times over the past couple of years both with family and the loss of a very dear friend.
Most of all the best thing about CURVES is having FUN!!!(especially Zumba-give it a go!)
My commitment is strong and I have reaped the rewards-so come on girls make the effort.
