I walked into the Tillsonburg Curves for the first time knowing that I was ready to make a change. I’d been so busy taking care of the needs of my family, that I was a becoming a distant memory of who I was. I was overweight and a couch potato. My excess weight was physically hard on me and I suffered with pain in my knees, which made it difficult to walk and to keep up with my active teenage daughters.
The first time I tried the Curves circuit, I was nervous and worried that I would not be able to do it. I admit it was difficult for me at first and I was tired, but I resolved to keep going. I went to Curves 4 times a week and slowly but surely my endurance, breathing and fitness level kept improving. The more I worked out on the circuit, the more I felt stronger and more powerful than before and capable of achieving anything. The Curves circuit is a great way to not only strengthen your body, but I found it also to be a great stress reliever. The Curves’ coaches make it fun and encourage us to put our best into each workout and to challenge ourselves. Even today as a seasoned member, the coaches make sure that I am using good form to get the most out of the 30 minute circuit. After every workout I feel more empowered. I am so glad that I took this chance for myself.
I learned so much by following the Curves Complete program. Using the tools provided kept me going and wanting to succeed. The meal plans, with the use of exchanges, were the key. They were easy to use. I learned how to eat healthy and live my life. The motivational videos were inspiring. Every week I was always eager to get to the next one. My favorite part was to review one and then go for a walk afterwards and focus on what was said. It became a special time for self-awareness.
Joining Curves has made a huge difference in my life. I love going there and working out with other members and the coaches. At every visit I am inspired and encouraged. I have rediscovered myself and I like who’ve I have found! I lost 48lbs. and 50.5 inches.*** I’ve gone from a size 12 to an astounding size 4 and can now share clothes with my daughters.*** One of my daughters has also joined Curves so we get to work out together too. Not only do I look and feel younger, I am more confident in my abilities to take on new challenges and to succeed at them. I ran my first 5K this year and it won’t be my last. Just to prove to myself how far I have come, I went back to my high school track to run a mile. As I did it with ease, I remembered the agony I felt when I was a teenager and I had to run a mile to pass gym class. Each lap seemed endless as I counted them down barely making it to the finish. Here I am in my forties and in the best shape of my life. I am so proud of myself for what I have achieved. I would tell anyone wanting to join a gym that Curves is the way to go, as it can work in a busy lifestyle that includes a full time job and a family with kids.
Thank you Curves I am truly blessed.
