I'm thinking about joining Curves For Women. I will be going past it with my new job, so it will be convenient. I recently tried out some different classes at the "Y" too, but my fitness level was not ready for those I tried. BUT...I DID keep moving, even though I couldn't do all the movements. My thighs are really strong and I do some free weights for upper body, but my balance is awful and flexabiliy poor. Also, osteoarthritis in my knees. Wow, I sound like a mess, but love to walk, do my mini-stepper, sometimes my treadmill, whatever, usually 5-6 times weekly. I also think I could benefit from a yoga class. Any thoughts?

Hi all. Couldn't get back for awhile, but just read your posts. Thanks! I'm not exactly an exercise novice, but think I need something more well rounded, so do plan to check out Curves and/or maybe a wellness center in my area, both close to where I'll be working. Yes, I have heard that after a while, you "grow out of curves" because you get too used to it, but I'm thinking it will be a good change and add to what I already do. Well, we will see. I agree that yoga can be awesome, but there are different kinds. I am interested in something to stretch, lengthen, tone, improve flexibility, etc., but not too demending, maybe to go along with Curves? Could just be a DVD to do at home, but would have to start slow. I have through Nov. to take advantage of the special at Curves, but will do the free week first to see what I think. Oh my gosh, LOL, I just now heard this news story about a drunk women that allows her 5 yr old son to drive her when she's drinking. "Yes, but he's a good driver." Sounds like some of my growing up stories! Lord, how did some of us survive???? Oh, I just edited this to add one more thing for the poster who didn't like where some of the curves profits go? Where do they go?
