After my retirement, I finally looked at myself and my plans for the future. When I looked in the mirror, I saw an overweight woman with bulges everywhere and no consistent shape. I suffered from hypertension and arthritis and took medication for both conditions. I have always been overweight and constantly on some type of diet or an exercise plan. Joining Curves empowered me to address the issues with my weight and motivated me to transform my physical appearance, to improve my health and to lose weight.
The innovative exercise program designed by Curves worked my entire body consistently but not strenuously. The program allowed me to use all the muscles in my body while motivating my mind that I could do this. The fitness coaches were inspiring, supportive and motivating, and worked closely with me to ensure that I was using each machine to receive the maximum potential and ultimate benefits.
Within months, I began to see many positive changes. For once, I had a waist line and uniform curves. My health began to improve. Noticeable changes were seen in my joints and I could exercise without pain and swelling. My blood pressure was lower and my body mass index decreased by double digits. The inspiration and the support from the Curves Coaches encouraged me to work harder for a new, healthy me.
