As you know, early this year, I made a promise to myself that I will take care of myself more and go back into fitness, and I'm happy to tell you that I somehow achieved my goals (see my blog about it HERE).
The easiest way to stay fit is to do exercises at home; however, some people are more motivated to go on the healthy route when they are surrounded with people who will serve as his/her encouragers because they all have the same objective. This is the reason why fitness centers were created, to build a community for people who are doing something to improve their health.
There are different types of fitness centers, depending on their services and what kind of fitness program they can offer to the members. Some fitness centers focus on strength building, some for endurance, some specialize on organizing group classes, among others. I also have tried going to fitness centers in the past, I enjoyed exercising together with others who have the same fitness goals too.
However, there is a fitness center that caters to females only. This is Curves, the world's number 1 fitness gym for women. Apart from being a fitness gym for women, it only takes 30 minutes of workout when you visit Curves. Every time you visit Curves, there is a coach who will encourage you and teach you the correct form in using the machines.
The machines at Curves are not the usual gym equipment that we use. It is designed for women of all ages--yes, even seniors can use the machines without hurting themselves!
In the Philippines, there are five Curves fitness gyms in Luzon. The branch that I visited last February was Curves Magnolia.
Curves Magnolia turned a year old last February and invited bloggers for a morning of fun fitness event. Curves Magnolia is spacious, with lounge, lockers, and shower area for members. Curves Magnolia thought of mommies who need to bring along their kids with them that is why there is a small space allocated for the kids to wait for their mommies to finish their workout.
