Any women here tried Curves?

My mom wants me to join Curves, and I'm thinking about telling her it's OK to get me a membership for a Christmas gift.

But, I have some buts....

- I hear this chain is owned by millitant evangelical Christians who support anti-abortion causes in a big way (milllions). I'm anti my revenues being turned into support for anti abortion groups.

- Is this going to be some "feel-good" place where perky women expect me to be perky in return? For example, one Curves owner once told me that they give a name to the sound that signals the time to switch machines, and they call this sound by that name and think that's real cute.

- Is the workout any good? (It's 30 mins cardio/resistance, alternating every 30 seconds.) But I'm used to a 50 minute hard swim. Will I bedisappointed?

- The closed-on-Sunday thing really bothers me. That is 15% of total time closed.

The classes at curves are really easy and you just get used to them and don't get the best results. If you have a Lifetime fitness nearby go there , they have excellent classes and are open all the time.

Soon to be available for download : 2004 Petrova-Henin USO Capriati-Sharapova 04 Berlin I like any player who produces a good match and is a sportsman.

We have Gold's and I hate it. I don't want to join a health club. I would just join my pool, but I hate swimming in the winter.


Appreciate your input about Curves.
