Curves was established in 1992 by Gary and Diane Heavin in Harlingen, Texas, with the goal of creating a fitness center for women with emphasis on weight loss guidance and strength training. This proved very popular with the women in the area and within three years they were franchising the gym. As proof of their success, the company is now recognized as one of the biggest franchise firms in the world, with thousands of franchise now operational.

Today the company is operating not just in the United States but also in Japan, South Africa, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand and Australia. In Russia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Kazakhstan, Bulgaria, Serbia, Slovakia and Ukraine it is known as FitCurves. Even though the company has gone through numerous changes, they remain true to their vision of developing facilities for weight loss and fitness for women. As pointed out earlier though, some locations allow men.

Curves founder Gary and Diane Heavin are also known for their charitable acts and activities, including contributing more than $1 million to the American Cancer Society in 2009, and the following year in 2010 Gary Heavin used their company jet to bring doctors to Haiti to aid victims of the earthquake.

Membership Fees

The membership fees depend on where you apply and the membership plan you avail of. Most locations though, charge $12.95 a week and this includes coaching, training and meal plans. If you are interested in the Curves program you can sign up for a free consultation. Taking all the expenses into account, the monthly fee comes to around $39 to $49, although in some areas it could be higher, and in some locations there is a $99 joining fee too. If you are planning on joining you need to contact the one nearest you to get an accurate estimate.

Membership Benefits

Those who join Curves will be able to participate in the core program, which centers around circuit training and the use of special hydraulic resistance systems to attain the desired goals. In addition to this, the Curves strength training program incorporates full cardio training, and as noted earlier it also comes with personalized meal plans and coaching so you know exactly what to do. But the biggest benefit that Curves offers members is that the workouts are tailored made for women, and is aimed specifically at women who have very little experience gym training but serious about getting in shape.

Unlike other fitness centers that just focus on training, Curves has coaches who will help address any confidence issues that you may have.Curves offers a comprehensive workout plan, with slight variations depending on the locality and your plan. Generally there are sixteen stations and you spend around 30 seconds on each, which slowly increases your strength without causing the frustration that comes with using strength machines extensively. Curves working stations are also varied, consisting of recovery pads and strength training.

Those who join the Curves program can use these strength training stations to burn calories rapidly, and the more effort you put in the quicker you will lose weight. The presence of the recovery pad however, prevents any burning out or any kind of joint injury. While many of the workouts are low impact, they have been proven to work, and it’s also the only fitness center that allows you to dictate the pace.

How Effective is the Curves Fitness Program?

In 2002 research was done at Baylor University’s Exercise & Sports Nutrition Laboratory to determine the long term effect of Curves’ training regimen. After extensive research it was proven that the Curves program is successful helping women shed off pounds, reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis, and at the same time maintain weight loss. At the same time the study showed that the meal plans employed in the Curves program helps in weight loss by keeping fat storing hormones at bay, something that is usually released when you are trying to cut down on calories.

These studies have been verified and published in several health and medical publications including Nutrition and Metabolism, the Sports Nutrition Review Journal, Medicine & Science in Sport & Exercise and the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology Journal. Following this study, several other researchers have come to the conclusion that Curves’ aerobic exercises will increase metabolism and strengthen the joints, muscles and bones, leading to better overall health for women.

  1. To the curves women’s gym group.Iwent to the local curves at port Macquarie to get an idea of monthly costs per month for gym only.I was quoted $79.00 dollars per month.This seemed a lot dearer than all my friends who are paying an across the board $60.00.This disappointed me as these friends all enjoy your gym ,but I can’t afford this amount. Please reply with information regarding this .Yours Sincerely Louise Green

    • We will look into that price quote one more time. Also all of these Gyms are franchise businesses so they usually decide on the price per month of each individual Gym membership. There will not be one price same for all of the gyms.

  2. I used to belong to Curves in Savannah, Ga, the Waters Ave.location.
    At that time WELLCARE participated in the Silver Sneakers program, but no more.I loved going there. My purpose was to build muscle weight, being that I am underweight. Unfortunately I can’t afford to join 🙁
    Do you not have a Senior citizen rate for people 55 and older? (I am 63)

    Thank You,
    Suzanna Bettencourt

  3. These prices are outrageous! Planet Fitness has a room that is set up similar to Curves set up and it is $10.00 a month! Planet Fitness opens earlier and closes later, as well.

  4. When I first joined Curves — maybe ten years ago or more — I was told I would pay a joining fee only once in my lifetime. I exercised at Curves for several years and then moved to Tasmania for a year (where there was no Curves facility).

    Upon returning to the US, at some point I rejoined the Curves exercise experience and did not have to pay joining fees. Then the Curves I was using closed and there was nothing close to me to join.

    After a few years, I returned to the place where I had started and tried to rejoin Curves. I was told that I would have to pay joining fees because my membership was not continuous.

    Somehow I have heard two different promises. What IS your policy?

  5. I called to get a quote. They wouldn’t give me a quote over the phone!!! They said I must make an appointment to discuss membership fees. No thank you!

  6. Initiation and Membership fees are not accurate. Please update your information. The Curves Enrollment fee is generally $99. per membership, with a monthly membership fee ranging from $34-79, depending on the membership option chosen.

  7. I belonged to Curves in a small town in OR. My insurance covered Senior Sneakers program and they paid the monthly fee and I paid Zero. I signed up for the 3 month meal plan. I was able to remove an item I didn’t like and substitute for another. I loved it. I lost inches and pounds. We moved to another area cloves by but that particular curves closed due to Curves raising prices for franchise owners and she couldn’t afford them. There is no Curves in my area. During the move I accidently tossed my 3 month meal plan away and I so very much regret that. When I see joining fees, monthly fees, etc I am blown away. We are planning to move to South Carolina within the next 2-3 months but I WILL NOT pay those prices. I will join a gym and hopefully they will have a meal. I would join Weight Watchers but I won’t support Oprah, I despise her.
