I am looking forward again to adding Jillian to my regular curves.

I can't do the lunges because it hurts my knees, but I tried to do all the other moves. I have to say, I can feel that it works my muscles in different ways. For example, there are moves that work the core, and honestly, I can feel it in my abs, sides and back. <BR> <BR> Many of the women at our club are resistant and complaining an...

But if you say to yourself, ‘I can’t believe I did that! I might as well eat whatever I want today and start my diet again tomorrow,’ you could gain two pounds over-night.

I LOVE my local Curves, I have met so many wonderful friends there, and look forward to working out. For most of the last part of the 2 years, I have been able to maintain my current weight (Which isn't ideal, but at least I wasn't gaining!). In the last 4 months, I have been really counting calories and using the heck out of the food tracker here, and have managed to lose 30+ lbs. I just had my measurements done again today... Thu, 30 Sep 2010 22:16:20 EST Beginning Curves Diet on Tuesday We are having a Biggest Loser competition at my office and ironically enough it coincides with my decision to start the Curves diet the day after Labor Day.

I joined Curves last year and I have not lost weight, infact I have stayed the same but I have lost a total of 12 inches. So now I want to rev up the weight loss. So if any of you have some ideas send them my way. I also swim and bicycle. I thought I'd start walking also.

Fri, 20 Jun 2008 15:06:19 EST Curves Equipment for Home? Does anybody know if there is any equipment like the type that Curves has for home use, not using the weights, but with the smooth movement that is easier on the muscles, etc. like what you experience at Curves? <BR> <BR> Maybe one of those all in one large pieces with multiple things as part of it? I have an 11x16 room that I could devote to that, and maybe an elliptical and/or a recumbent exercycle? <BR> <BR> I know these pieces of equipment would be relatively high quality, not disc...

Thu, 12 Jun 2008 10:46:12 EST CurvesSmart What do you think of the new Curves Smart progam? <BR> It was just introduced at our local CURVES this week. Sounds really good, but kind of expensive. An initial fee of $25 and then $5.00 a month here in Helena, Mt. <BR> Wed, 21 May 2008 15:07:33 EST Hi Just wanted to say hi. <BR> I joined curves two days ago on their Avon fitness study. Its a 30 day study where they take my weight and measurments now and again in 30 days ..costs $30.00. <BR> FIngers crossed I can do this. <BR> <BR> Im planning on joining after the 30 days. <BR> <BR> Today was my first real workout, it was weird to have someone pushing you to work harder. The trainer would walk over and if I was not pushing myself she would try to get me to push harder..I really need that. Sat, 17 May 2008 01:39:08 EST Hi Hi,I signed back at Curves on Monday, I had to quit going about a year ago when I hurt my back, now recovered from that and really need to get rid of the pounds I have accumulated. I really love Curves workout. Wed, 14 May 2008 13:16:15 EST Calaries burned on circuit at Curves Hi everyone I have heard different amounts on this subject. Can you please let me know what you have heard or know. I have heard that you burn 500 calaries when you do the complete circuit 3 times and get your heatbeat up to where it should be. Then I was told that Sparkpeople say it is only 200-300 calaries burnt. Where do you go on Sparkpeople to find that out. Your help would be appreciated Thankyou Starr Wed, 14 May 2008 09:02:08 EST New to Curves Hi there My name is Starr and I joined Curves last week. So far I have lost 30 lbs but I am stuck now and cann't seem to lose the last 23 lbs to reach my goal. So I thought I would join Curves to enhance my exercise routine and to get the scale moving down. They tell me that you burn 500 calaries when you do the 30 minute workout. I think that is great I sure hope I can stick with it. I am going to give it my best I am so determined to lose these last pounds and I will do it.

Have you ever felt compelled to say something when you have overhear something at Curves? <BR> <BR> Last week I overheard one of the Curves trainer talking about how she had one member who was up to 5 times round the circuit.

Mon, 28 Jan 2008 23:32:15 EST Smart Training I just found out last night that we are going to be getting the Smart Training machines in April. Has anyone else heard about this? The gest of it is that the machines will tell you if you are going to slow. I think this will be great! I think we will see more inches lost. I know for a fact that I have weak upper body (arm) strength, so this will be great for me. Thu, 24 Jan 2008 10:06:18 EST Hi, new today I just joined this group as of today.
