I was a member of Curves for almost a year. I really started out enjoying it. It did become very boring and routine after a while which made it hard to keep going. The staff really tried to make it interesting and interacted alot. The equipment felt challenging in the beginning, but toward the end felt like I was not getting any benefit from it. The other thing that makes it difficult is the hours. The do open early but close for 2 hours in the middle of the day. I never understood the logic in doing that. Curves is a good place for a workout-be careful of boredom.
