Why should you read this? Im a real Curves success story and any woman you know can be, too. You may think Curves is just like any other gym, but Im here to tell you that Curves is not like that at all and that's a big deal!
Four dress sizes ago, I decided to check out the Curves I pass everyday on my way home from work. I called and found the voice on the phone friendly and I could hear uplifting music in the background. I asked a few initial questions, liked what I heard, and dropped by that day after work. I wanted to go check it out and take a look around. I asked lots and lots of questions and liked the answers, the friendliness of the ladies working out, the cleanliness of the facility and, of course, the music. I never once felt I was getting a sales pitch that sounded too good to be true and thats something I liked very much. I tried out the equipment and it seemed like something I could do. You see, Ive never been athletic and I didnt like physical education classes in school. I never was really good at sports and Ive been the last one to be picked for a team. At Curves, I feel like I have my own personal team who sincerely want me to succeed. They cheer me on, like my very own personal cheerleaders. Since losing over 50 pounds and lots of inches, my ego has been boosted and my self-confidence has increased (and it doesnt hurt to have people say how good I look and whistle at me either)!
When I travel, I visit other Curves clubs and that is so much fun! I am always welcomed by friendly members who are anxious to tell me the best places I absolutely must see while Im in their area. Theres camaraderie at Curves, no matter what city or state youre in and thats an amazing thing to see.
Anyone who knows me will tell you I like to talk and I have made so many friends at my Curves, which has been an added bonus to losing weight and inches. I now count among my friends a chemist, a private investigator, a school board administrator, a baker, a business owner, and even a former teacher of my moms! I probably would never have met these ladies if Id not joined Curves.
When new members join, I try to encourage them so theyll have a good time and keep coming back. I have been humbled and honored to have many ladies tell me how Ive been an inspiration to them. That is pretty amazing. So I hope by your reading this, it encourages you to tell a woman you know to check out a Curves nearby (and I hope youll vote for me, too)!
