Curves for Women

First opened in Texas in 1992, our review of Curves for Women should help you to decide whether - as a woman - (because they are ladies only gyms) whether their network of 9,000 gyms worldwide is for you. They have over 90 locations in the UK.


Our review of Curves for Women gyms shows they are Ladies only gyms, they are weight loss and fitness centres and they are also a motivating factor for many women to work out!

Curves for Women operate slightly differently from normal gyms in that they focus on 30 minute fitness workouts as the foundation of their success.

Providing a supportive, friendly environment, and their workout programme that allows you to get a complete aerobic and strength training workout in just 30 minutes, this ladies only gym could be your answer.

There's two key concerns for many women :

  • Finding the time - long workouts don't work for many people's daily lives
  • Privacy - many women are uncomfortable working out around men

What do Curves offer?

Their specially designed workout is suitable for all ages and includes all the key elements in one thirty minute session.

The beauty of this is that everyone can find 30 minutes in their day for a fitness workout that includes :

Warm-up - Cardio - Resistance training - Cool down - Stretching

The secret to it is a series of easy-to-use hydraulic resistance machines, which provide steady resistance. You can thus adjust the machines to your ability, and move quickly and easily around the circuit.

Facilities & Equipment

Every fitness centre has slightly different facilities but as they focus on their 30 minute fitness workout, they all have the following :

  • 30 minute fitness program
  • Ladies only facilities
  • Nutritional advice

Women members from Curves gyms have said the workouts are fun and that there is a definite level of support over and above other health clubs.

Added Value

Women find that this is an experience unlike any they've encountered before. They feel supported, they make progress, and it's fun! Why don't you check out your local branch to see what they can offer you?

We found them to be very helpful, a good encouraging environment and not at all intimidating (as some gyms or health clubs can be).
