My mother and I recently joined Slim and Tone and I love it! It's kinda like Curves but the machines are different and you only do 20 minutes on the circuit and then the other 10 minutes or more is spent doing just cardio and then 5 minutes of stretching. Everyone that works there is so nice and very helpful. You basically have a personal trainer each time you come to workout. They have 2 treadmills and 3 elipictical, a recumbant bike, they offer kick boxing classes and they have other equipment there to keep you busy.
