Curves Heathridge helps women get fit faster

INSTEAD of spending hours at the gym, women can become fit and strong through just 30 minutes of exercise three times a week at Curves Heathridge.

A scientifically proven half-hour workout is one of the key ingredients behind the global success of Curves women’s fitness and weight loss clubs, which are designed for women of all ages and fitness levels.

With a Curves coach on hand at every workout to teach and motivate women and machines equipped with CurvesSmart technology, members enjoy a personalised environment in which to achieve their goals.

The Curves Heathridge centre also offer Curves Complete, a tailored weight loss program that combines fitness, personalised meal plans and weekly in-club coaching.

Curves director of exercise and research Katie Mitchell said the use of hydraulic resistance exercise equipment was integral to the Curves workout.

“Most women only have a small amount of time to fit exercise into their schedule so every minute counts,” she said.

“That’s why the Curves Circuit includes hydraulic resistance exercise equipment.

“This type of equipment gives women the ability to strength train opposing muscle groups at the same time, cutting down workout time.”

Ms Mitchell said hydraulic resistance equipment was generally safer than free weights and women work out in 30-second intervals in the circuit.

“30 seconds is the optimal time to allow muscles to work at maximum capacity before fatigue sets in,” she said.

“This means members can recover more effectively between strength machines and sustain heart rate within their target heart rate training zone.”

The environment at Curves Heathridge and other Curves centres is safe, welcoming and friendly, aiming to provide somewhere women can work out individually but in a motivating group setting.

Women in the northern suburbs do not have to travel far for a supportive place to get fit and healthy, with Clarkson, Hillarys and Duncraig joining Heathridge.

“It’s exciting to have been a part of the community for so long, providing women with weight loss guidance and a fun, doable program,” Curves Heathridge owner Nola McLean said.

“We feel our success stems from not only the strength of the Curves brand, but our dedication to helping women in our communities get fit and healthy.”
