Curves machines are specifically designed for safety, simplicity and effectiveness, automatically adjusting to every fitness level. The equipment provides the benefits of cardiovascular exercise and weight training with the safe movement of hydraulic resistance, giving an effective workout while protecting bones and joints.
Studies show that regular exercise, reduces the risk of conditions such as coronary heart disease, stroke, cancer, Type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and high blood pressure. It also helps to control weight; contributes to healthy bones, muscles and joints; helps to relieve the pain of arthritis and fybromyalgia; and reduces the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Specially designed for women, each low-impact machine works at least two muscle groups and as many as four at one time because you push and pull, rather than lift and lower weight. Alternating upper body, lower body and core muscles, the Curves circuit provides a full body workout in just 30 minutes.
Strength training can provide up to a 15% increase in metabolic rate, which supports more consistent weight loss and is essential to long term weight control.
High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is the good cholesterol, which removes harmful bad cholesterol from the bloodstream. Exercise, like the workout you get at Curves, is one of the few ways to help elevate your HDL levels.
Decreasing hypertension is extremely important and healthy habits like maintaining a healthy weight, increasing physical activity, and eating a healthy diet moderately low in sodium can make a difference.
Research shows type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed by making key lifestyle changes – healthy eating, a 5 to 10% weight loss and 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week. The strength training and cardio you get from a Curves workout, along with a healthy diet and moderate weight loss, can help reduce your risk.
There are many factors, which can help in the prevention of cancer. One of the most important is a healthy lifestyle. A few lifestyle choices you can make are reaching a healthy body weight, eating a healthy diet and being physically active on a regular basis including strength training and cardio, avoiding tobacco and using appropriate sun protection.
To prevent osteoporosis, engage in regular strength training exercises, take your daily-recommended amounts of calcium and vitamin D, and avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.
Regular exercising helps you to strengthen and balance the muscles that surround the key joints in the body. You are likely to take pressure off the joints, and add mobility and support while decreasing the amount of wear and tear on those joints.
Muscle weakness is very common and a combination of pain, fatigue and inactivity often leads to muscles weakening. This can make it even more difficult to do normal daily activities. With the Curves circuit, your muscles will become stronger as the machines work according to your own strength thus leading to less strain on your muscles.
Coronary Heart Disease
Coronary heart disease is a disorder that affects the coronary arteries around the heart, these supply oxygen and nutrients to your heart. This means that the regional blood supply doesn’t deliver the oxygen needed by your heart. With regular exercise, you can prevent the blood vessels from becoming narrower as well as maintain a normal heart rhythm. With these changes, you can reduce the pressure on your heart at rest as well as during your workout which will lead to lessening the symptoms.
Moderate exercise has been shown to bolster the function of certain components of the human immune system - such as natural killer cells, circulating T- and B-lymphocytes, and cells of the monocytemacrophage system - thereby possibly decreasing the incidence of some infections. The brief increase in body temperature during and directly following exercise may prevent bacteria from growing and also may help the body fight infection.
Good blood circulation is essential to maintaining a healthy body. Blood is responsible for transporting required nutrients and substances to all organs, cells, bones and muscles. Regular strength training and cardio exercise can play a significant role in good blood circulation.
Regular strength training and cardio exercise can serve as a distraction to your worries, allowing you to break out of the cycle of negative thoughts that feed anxiety, depression and other mental and emotional problems
Strength training provides similar improvements in depression as anti-depressant medications. Currently, it is not known if this is because people feel better when they are stronger or if strength training produces a helpful biochemical change in the brain. It is most likely a combination of the two. Sleep Deprivation/Insomnia: People who exercise regularly enjoy improved sleep quality. They fall asleep more quickly, sleep more deeply, awaken less often, and sleep longer.
