Curves & Weights

The genius who came up with the idea for Curves — a women’s-only fitness chain — knew what she was doing. Gym-going men, please take note: No woman likes being hit on while she’s covered in sweat. Period. And, in another stroke of genius, Curves has broken down the ideal workout — one that combines strength work and cardio — into easily manageable, bite-sized chunks, also known as “circuits.” This Saturday, to celebrate the addition of its brand-new stretching circuit, Curves (located at 3888 State Street) will host a grand re-opening party, at which the first 100 women to join will have the $149 membership fee waived. The party, which lasts from 2 p.m. - 6 p.m., will include live music, food, and a raffle. If only every trip to the gym were as much fun!
