I know people who have lost weight with Curves, they love it! For me, it's too small, I feel weird working out with people face to face with me. The ones around here are super small because I live in a small town. If I were in a city and they had bigger facilities, I would probably have tried it out a bit more.

emoticon My Spark Friend LJCANNON lost a lot of weight by going to Curves and making some moderate changes in her Diet. She does go to Curves almost every day, and she Walks a LOT, too. Recently she started doing the Treadmill and Recumbent Bike several times a week.

Curves will recommend that if your focus is weight loss, you walk everyday and do their workout 4 X/week. It is a fun and totally do-able, individualized workout that targets alot of your large and small muscle groups and you get a bit of cardio in as well. I wouldn't say that there is enough cardio in the workouts themselves to stand alone, but added to a regular walking or other cardio routine, it is great.

Now, Curves also sells a very nutritionally sound, healthy, 12 week eating plan called Curves Complete which can help you to jump start your goals. Talk to your Curves owner or manager about this and she'll tell you all about it. Trust me, if you follow it, it works. I had been on a plateau after successfully losing 74 pounds for over a year and CC was the only thing that helped me finally start seeing results again (along with my workouts and supplemental cardio at home).

Some Curves also offer Curves Smart which are computerized little coaches that help to keep you working as hard as you can to improve your results. Some Curves also offer Zumba classes and you can do Zumba iin the Circuit or often choose to just do the Zumba. FUN and total calorie torcher.

Let us know how it goes.

Personally, I really like Curves. You get in your strength training and cardio at the same time during a 30 minute workout. I've been able to reach my goal weight and maintain it. I know that it has greatly improved my muscle strength because I used to go to the gym and use their machines. Then I started going to Curves instead. One day I wasn't able to go to Curves, so I went back to the gym. I was able to lift a lot more weight on the gym machines than I was able to before going to Curves. I also use the gym once a week and walk and bike outside when the weather is nice, in addition to Curves. But Curves is the place I go consistently 3 times a week. I really enjoy it. I've been going for 19 months now.

Yep, that's entirely true. Nobody "lost weight by going to curves". If they lost weight and were doing Curves at the time, their loss came from their nutrition, mostly.

What you eat is going to do FAR more for your weight goals than how you work out.

It's important TO work out, but not important HOW.

I agree with Luann, weight loss is 80% nutrition. What type of exercise you do doesn't "really" matter. Obviously, some things burn more calories than others. If Curves seems like something you'd enjoy, go for it.

Actually, you lose "a lot of weight" by controlling your calories. Weight loss is 80% nutrition!

Give Curves a try... many people really like it. And cardio is good for your body, that's for sure.
