OK - so where does that leave Curves machines. I have been told because their machines work off of hydraulics they are all safe, but two of the machines that we use are listed here. I have back issues and I do not want to agravate them. I had started to work out and they got worse, then I herniated a disk, had to have the shot to take down the swelling and did not work on the Smart program for five months. January I started back on the program and my back started spasming again. I felt it was the machines and so I told the club owner (wonderful person by the way) and she is working very hard with me. Point is, if I need different exercises than those machines and if the machines are going to continiously irritate my back, is it worth it. I love going there and enjoy the people.
Anyone have an opinion or know anything about those machines?
