Curves International goes by several names such as Curves, Curves Fitness, or Curves for Women. It was founded in Harlingen, Texas in 1992 by Gary and Diane Heavin, and is headquartered in Waco, Texas. It is an international franchise with centers in the United States, Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, Central America, and the Caribbean.
Curves was originally designed as a way for women to incorporate strength-training and aerobics in one 30-minute workout session. It involves a series of machines focusing on various muscle groups to be performed in a fast-paced circuit. At its peak, Curves had over 10,000 locations across the world with two-thirds of those being in the United States alone. As of 2019, it is reported to have 367 franchises still open in the United States. The machines are specifically built for women though some locations allow men to join the club as well. Over its lifetime, Curves has added personal training programs, one-on-one nutritional coaching, meal plans, and workout gear.
Curves locations are independently owned franchises and may offer different promotions to new members from time to time. New members can expect to pay a $75 enrollment fee and agree to a three or six-month commitment. Membership fees are advertised at $12.95 per week plus applicable taxes, which comes to $45 to $50 per month. This may be lower on longer-term contracts.
