  • Curves Blows

    Feb 27, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Great for the extremely overweight, infirm and out of shape
    Cons: Not challenging enough and just too BORING

    Summary: My daughter gave me a gift membership for 2 months to Curves and I couldn't wait for it to end. By my third time there I was totally bored with the "workout" and the "change stations now" recording every 30 seconds was driving me nuts. I was actually ... read more

  • "one-year contract" may be misleading

    Feb 16, 2006 by
    Not rated yet
    Pros: easy and quick, convenient location
    Cons: sneaky "rollover" contract, annoying religious music, poorly trained employees, minimal effectiveness of workout

    Summary: I have read the reviews that mention the "one-year contract" and think it is important to clarify that if you choose the automatic payment method, which saves something like $10 a month, the automatic withdrawals will NOT stop at the end of the year of ... read more

  • Curves Fan

    Feb 1, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Works for anyone committed to the program, plenty of support on and offline.
    Cons: In my mind there aren't any cons.

    Summary: Realizing Curves isn't for everyone, I have to say it seems to be helping a huge demographic of women who really didn't have many gym/workout choices before Curves came along. Speaking from my own perspective, as a 40-ish woman who cringed at the ... read more

  • Not challenging enough, workout is the same every time.

    Jan 29, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Easy to do, music is great. It's the fastest workout that I have ever done.
    Cons: Workout gets boring after awhile. you can't change the flow of the workout.

    Summary: The workout is not challenging enough. You can't do anything different. I leave feeling as though I have not had a workout. Your body gets used to the same workout after a while and you won't see any results. After 1 month of working out there, I got ... read more

    Pros: Fun, supportive environment.
    Cons: Limited hours at some locations.

    Summary: I started at Curves for Women over 3 years ago. I started off well at first, and lost about 10 pounds, but then stopped going and gained it all back plus more. I went to 186 pounds. I got the courage to go back and it took a while, but I am now under ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: In and out in 30 minutes
    Cons: 1-year contract. Not much on cardio, at least for me.

    Summary: I'm a 44-year old runner who runs an average 20~25 miles per week, and I needed a way to cross-train every other day on my non-running days to build muscle and strengthen my upper body and core. I've been going to Curves for 8 months now and I have gone ... read more

  • Great workout, but lousy hours

    Oct 11, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Easy-to-use equipment, friendly environment, good results in terms of stamina and muscle tone.
    Cons: Unsatisfactory weekend and evening hours.

    Summary: I love the Curves workout, and have been pleased with the results in terms of increased stamina and muscle tone, but it just doesn't fit my schedule! I have called 10 Curves franchises in my urban area, and they are ALL closed evenings, Saturday ... read more

    Pros: QUICK, EASY, FRIENDLY AND INEXPENSIVE.
    Cons: BORING, CHRISTIAN MUSIC, UNKNOWLEDGEABLE STAFF, REPUBLICAN DONORS.

    Summary: I ENJOY CURVES BECAUSE IT IS QUICK AND NONCOMPETITIVE. AT ANOTHER ALL LADIES CLUB PEOPLE HOGGED MACHINES AND THERE WERE EVEN CONFRONTATIONS. NOT COOL. I HATE THE FAKEY CHRISTIAN ROCK AND THE STAFF ARE EVEN LESS KNOWLEDGEABLE THAN I AM, AND GIVE ... read more

    Pros: FAST FUN EFFECTIVE WORKOUT
    Cons: N/A

  • Bad business. Beware.

    Mar 11, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: I don't know since I never was able to exercise there.
    Cons: Very bad business ethics. Don't trust them.

    Summary: I signed up with Curves, paid a big sign up fee, plus one month's exercise fee and gave them access to my bank account. Shortly thereafter, I became chronically ill, disabled, and handicapped (I now walk with a cane). I have fibromyalgia and severe ... read more

  • curves not for working women

    Feb 6, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Fast workout, many locations
    Cons: Hours not geared to working women

    Summary: Curves is not for the working woman. The franchise hours are set up to cater to stay-at-home or retired women. Eighty percent of their open hours are during the time period that many woman are at work. On weekends they are only open on Saturday ... read more

  • A good workout, when the place is open

    Jan 7, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Easy to use machines, never a wait to work out
    Cons: Hours change capriciously, at least at my local Curves.

    Summary: I joined a year ago and worked out regularly (3-5 times a week) for the first six months. I only lost a few pounds, but I did lose inches. (Muscle weighs more than fat). It's a good program for newbies, especially if you join with a friend. I got bored ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: quick workout, cardio/resistance training combo works great staff are very supportive, pleasant atmosphere
    Cons: does not work your abs

    Summary: I think curves is a great place if you are serious, dedicated and have reasonable expectations. NO it's not your typical gym but that is obvious as soon as you walk through the door. I joined hoping to lose inches and maybe 5 - 8 pounds. I have been a ... read more

  • Curves for Women

    Rated Show
    Pros: If you really think about it, you can do almost anything for 30 seconds.
    Cons: The blasting of Christian music, "14 beats/minute" is an assault on the brain cells.

    Summary: The initial view of the Curves for Women program looked good .. 30 minutes a day of moderate exercise in a women-only setting. The 'atmosphere appeared to be supportive of women of all shapes, sizes and moderate fitness levels. However, after a brief ... read more

  • Curves is Unbeatable

    Oct 5, 2004 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: The caring and support attitude of the staff
    Cons: Probably not as effective as weight lifting

    Summary: I joined Curves approximately one year ago. Up until then I had been sedentary for 15 years. Curves is not going to give me a rock hard body but it does wonders for my self-esteem and sense of well-being. Whenever I walk in the door, the staff not ... read more

    Pros: Energetic, simple, friendly, results.
    Cons: Some of the clubs have restrictive hours, but its not a problem for me.

    Summary: I love Curves. I joined in August, and I go 3 times a week. It has been well worth the money. I went from being an excersise-a-phobic, to looking forward to my 3 visits a week. In under 2 months, I have lost 9 pounds, 7 pounds of body fat, and 7 ... read more

  • Curves not worth it

    Aug 15, 2004 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Only 30 min.
    Cons: Too expensive, not physically challenging enough, year-long contract.

    Summary: I have been a Curves for Women member for about 7 months. I have seen no results and I found that it is not challenging enough for me. I don't even break a sweat. I am pretty young--22 yrs old--and not overweight that much (I just wanted to lose 10-15 ... read more
