In 2007, my primary care physician told me to join Curves and lose 30 lbs. I had worked out in traditional gyms in the past, but none in the past few years. He also diagnosed me with Osteopenia and encouraged any activity that would strengthen my bones. I joined Curves the next day.
I didn't expect much from a few machines and a small circuit after being accustomed to the large gyms. I was wrong. I discovered that using the machines properly and pushing to work out a little harder each time brought results. After one year, I joined the Curves Complete program and lost 30 lbs. in eight months.*** In fact, at my last doctor visit, he suggested that I could wait another year to have my next DEXA scan since my bone density had improved so much.
Both of my parents had heart disease and my mom also had cancer. Because of regular workouts and healthy living choices, I have avoided falls and live a more active lifestyle. It only takes 30 minutes out of your busy schedule to become healthy and fit. The friends I have made at Curves are an extended family to me. I don't think I could ever workout anywhere else, and look forward to many more years of healthy living.
