Curves has designed an amazing circuit workout involving Strength Training, Cardiovascular Exercise, and Stretching.
The circuit incorporates specially designed hydraulic equipment which has been designed so to efficiently provide enough resistance to build lean muscle - this does not mean that you will bulk up.
Strength Workouts Myth vs' Fact
Strong muscles provide the support for bones and joints that keep your body stable and working properly.
Doing strength training as you lose weight, your body will prioritize and protect muscle tissue and tend to burn more body fat for energy. When you are trying to lose weight and keep it off, it is critical that you do all that you can to burn primarily body fat and preserve muscle mass. Check out all the ways your life may be improved through strength training at Curves!
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 Cholesterol
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.Hypertension
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.Diabetes Prevention
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.Osteoporosis
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.Managing Pain
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.
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.Blood Circulation
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.Depression
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.
At Curves, we focus on both high and low intensity activities.
Our equipment is based on the use of hydraulic resistance. This unique feature makes it possible to perform strength and cardiovascular training at the same time. By working muscle groups that oppose each other, you work muscles symmetrically or in balance. This aligns the muscular-skeletal system to improve functional posture and movement.
FACT - Our strength training promotes the building of lean muscle; giving you a toned and firm appearance.
There are many myths that surround strength training and weight loss. Our mission at Curves is to educate women on the facts of strength training and healthy living.
