Exercise & Health

Exercising if you have osteoporosis means finding the safest and most enjoyable activities for your overall health and amount of bone loss, so there’s no single best exercise for osteoporosis.1 Strength training exercises, such as the Curves workout for women, are often the exercises recommended for people with osteoporosis because regular exercise is essential for treating and preventing osteoporosis. Stability and balance exercises are also beneficial to better prevent falls, so our Balance and women’s Boxing classes are great options to help improve your stability. As with all medical conditions, if you have osteoporosis and you’re thinking of taking up or returning to exercise, please consult your physician.

Some exercises are inappropriate for women with endometriosis but engaging in regular physical exercise can have protective effects against endometriosis as it increases antioxidant and inflammatory markers within your body.2 As with all medical conditions, if you have endometriosis and you’re thinking of taking up or returning to exercise, please consult your physician.

There are many key health benefits of exercise that you’ll enjoy when you join your local Curves gym for women and attend workouts regularly. Benefits include building muscle, improving flexibility, boosting your metabolism, and burning fat. Combined with a weight loss diet plan for women, such as our balanced and sustainable Curves Nutrition and Weight Management program, you’ll see permanent results and set the stage for a healthier, more active future, empowering you to live the life you want.

No. Many women are afraid that if they lift weights, they will get bulky. Resistance training exercises, like the Curves workout for women, will help you get stronger but won’t make you “bulk up.” With strength training, you may add a few pounds in the short term — because muscle is more dense than fat — but that muscle will contribute to a leaner and healthier you. What’s more, if you don’t preserve your muscles with strength training, you will lose about a 3-5% per decade after age 30.3 Strength training is a key component of a full body workout for women that can help you lose weight, get healthier and enjoy a more active lifestyle.

Though there are many diets and exercise trends that come and go, one of the most reliable ways to lose weight is to eat healthily and exercise. The Curves strength training for women , combined with our Nutrition and Weight Management program, is a great way to set yourself up for success in losing weight. Plus, you will have a Curves Coach to offer motivation and support to help keep you on track.

The Curves women’s gym workout is designed to strengthen your whole body in just 30-minutes and combines strength training, cardio, and stretching to improve your cardiovascular health and increase your flexibility, too. If you’re new to exercise or it’s been some time since you were active regularly, our low-intensity Balance classes are ideal for improving stability and creating a strong core. If you’d like to focus more on strength-based functional movements which emphasise arms, legs and core, our medium to lower-intensity Body Basics women’s gym classes may be ideal for you. Contact your local Curves club to find out which strength training class is right for you.

Yes and no. Resistance training is a type of strength training, so all resistance training is strength training. Resistance training means you’re building muscle by overloading the muscles—whether from your own weight, free weights, a resistance band or a machine — but building muscle isn’t the main goal of resistance training, increasing strength is the primary goal.

The best way to stay fit and healthy is to eat healthily and exercise regularly. The Curves workout program for women, combined with our three-phase Nutrition and Weight Management program, is a great way to maintain your health and fitness. Plus, you will have a Curves Coach to offer motivation and support to help keep you on track.

That depends on several factors, including your personal health goals, your age, existing medical conditions, and how quickly you want to see results. The World Health Organization recommends 150 minutes of exercise per week.4 To achieve this, working out at Curves would be three to four 30-minute sessions, plus one or two 30-minute at-home workouts with MyCurves On Demand.
