Curves hosts open house

Curves fitness centres, including Vernon, are opening their doors this week

Curves fitness centres, including Vernon, are opening their doors this week.

Open house week runs Monday to Friday and provides women with the opportunity to take some time for themselves.

According to a new survey by Harris Poll on behalf of Curves, nearly seven in 10 women responded they would like more “me time” in a given week for their personal interests and hobbies.

Fitness and wellness activities such as going to the gym or exercising rank among the top four ways to spend “me time,” but six in 10 women feel that typical gym workouts are too time-consuming.

“As women look for efficiencies amidst busy fall schedules and aim to maximize their me time, a 30-minute Curves workout is the perfect option,” said Mike Raymond, chief marketing officer at Curves International.

“The circuit affords women a great full-body workout while still leaving time for other personal interests.”

Curves in Vernon will offer a free walking clinic Sept. 22 at 9:30 a.m., free zumba classes Sept. 23, meal planning Sept. 24, Jillian Michaels workouts Sept. 25 and  Curves Smart Info Sept. 26.
