Curves is a female-only gym and fitness center with locations throughout the United States and the rest of the world. Reviews on Viewpoints note that gym employees are generally friendly and dedicated; however some complain that the atmosphere in the gym is overly sociable. Many women cite the absence of men in Curves gyms as a positive, as it increases their level of comfort and decreases self-consciousness.
Complaints about Curves on Consumer Reports include difficulties with payment plans and membership cancellations. DietSpotlight.com notes that the gym has two separate corporate websites, which may cause confusion among users.
The gym closes relatively early in the evening, making it difficult for women who work full time to schedule a workout. Some reviews on Consumer Reports and Viewpoints note that the workout programs at Curves generally focus on beginners and older women and do not achieve the level of intensity desired by experienced gym-goers or athletes. The core Curves workout is a 30-minute guided circuit training routine. The routine combines cardiovascular and resistance training but does not require participants to have any prior knowledge of strength training.
