No but I used to go to a ladies only gym and tbh I find the over fit, pert bottomed women more intimidating than the men at the mixed gym!

Blimey! Curves is nothing like that.....In my local club there are ladies from 17-79!......It's so friendly and supportive....All shapes and sizes as well.....I am about 8stone overweight so no pert bottom here I can assure u!.....Yes you do get the occasional slim and fit lady but they weren't always like that...they have had to work hard and they are actually a real inspiration for people like me.

I never thought I would enjoy going to a gym...but I have managed to lose nearly 2 stone since January 14th this year.

I was really hoping that there was going to be a Curves area on this forum as the American one is very very American (if u know what I mean!)

I haven't seen a Curves gym before. Are they a big chain?

I had a great personal trainer at my old gym though, that was the only thing I missed

I really want a personal trainer, I need someone to kick my arse into gear when I really don't feel like doing anything but they are expensive aren't they?

I'm sure there are quite a few ladies who use Curves. I used to go to my local one but kinda lost interest - that's why I'm still the size I am - no staying power!
 

SO MUCH TO LOSE!

Must do it this time

Hello Taz.......I kind of have a 'personal trainer'....Sharon is the Manageress and a really inspirational and motivational superstar! She helps to keep my eye on the goal.....She weighs and measures me every month.....We have such a laugh! I used to be addicted to crisps and cakes....now I'm addicted to Curves!! This is the 1st time in my life that I really feel I can get to the weight I want to.....and to stay there!!......I look forward to going to Curves 4-6 times a week...and as the circuit only takes 30 minutes I can fit it into my busy lifestyle (work full time and have 2 teenage kids)....

I had a medical at work last week and for the 1st time I can remember my blood pressure was normal....and my cholesterol was normal as well....

I must find a tracker and jazz up my profile...hopefully have time later..

Ladies, I must thank you for such a friendly welcome xx

I checked out the Curves website and there aren't any at all in my area!
 
#12
Oh Taz! I'm sorry there isn't one in your area.....Move to Somerset?:p

I wrote a story in our local paper last week and 27 ladies have joined my gym this week!

I am so desperate to hear from other ladies in the UK who go to Curves.....The American website is pants!

Maybe I should start one?.....Only problem is I wouldnt have a clue how to start....hey ho...xxxx

Tell u what I will do though Kaz....I'll have a word with the owner of my gym...I wonder if she is aware that there is an oportunity to move into the Bristol area.....

I joined curves 2 years ago and lost NOTHING. 1 of the girls I work with was the same and another is doing it now and is very disapointed.

I wouldnt waste my money on them - spend it in a proper gym.
 
#16
I disagree completely....it's an amazing gym....I wouldnt set foot in a normal gym again...I was bored stiff at a normal gym...surrounded by skinny women and pumped up sweaty men....All the ladies at my gym lose weight regularly.....:)

Not really much use now but I used to live in B-o-S so the Bridgwater one would have been ideal. Tell them to open one in Bristol!

oxoxallyoxox, why do you think you didn't lose weight? Were you dietting while you were gyming?
 
#18
Taz...I'll ask tomorrow :).....

I dont consider myself to be on a diet....I have just changed my whole attitude to food....I make healthy choices now...but in a way that I can stick to for the rest of my life.....I enjoy the things I used to hate and am happy to avoid all the naughty things I used to eat.....All I do these days is think to myself.....do I want that packet of crisps or do I want to reach my goals?.........No contest really....

Wow I wish I could be so restrained! I usually eat the crisps then think That really wasn't worth it!
 
#20
Taz.....I honestly used to be exactly like that......It's my 21st Wedding Anniversary at the end of May and I want to lose 3 stone by then.....We're going to Paris for a week to celebrate.....Then I want to lose another 2 stone by the end of September before we go to Kefalonia for a little holiday......Then another stone by Christmas..........So....instead of saying I want to lose 6 stones I have broken it down to achievable chunks....Wish me luck? xxxx
