When Connie Ruble, owner of Curves in Great Bend, opened the business seven years ago, the mission was to give the women in the Great Bend community a complete aerobic and strength training workout in a fun, supportive environment.
“It’s exciting to have been a part of the Great Bend community for so long, providing women with weight loss guidance and a fun, doable program,” said Ruble. “We feel our success in Great Bend stems from not only the strength of the Curves brand, but our dedication to helping women get fit.”
Since Ruble opened Curves of Great Bend in May 2004, women have been able to exercise in an environment designed strictly for them.
To celebrate the anniversary, Curves of Great Bend is not charging a fee to join during the month of June.
Under the direction of Richard B. Kreider, PhD, FACSM, scientists have put the Curves fitness and weight-loss program to rigorous testing, scrutinizing its effects on hundreds of women. The results? Curves works! Women on the Curves plan have lost weight and kept it off, boosted their metabolism, lost body fat, gained muscle, and enjoyed several other significant benefits.
According to Ruble, the Curves plan focuses on firing up the metabolism, small meals throughout the day, a broad variety of healthy food and strength training. Curves’ exercise program consists of thirty minutes of exercise three times a week, during which participants work all major muscle groups and receive a great cardio workout. It includes all five components of a complete exercise program: warm-up, strength training, cardio, cool down, and stretching.
In addition to a proven workout plan, Curves of Great Bend offers various programs to help motivate and assist women in obtaining a healthy lifestyle, including: CurvesSmart™ personal coaching system, a new technology pioneered by Curves that offers a precision designed workout, moment to moment feedback and progress reports to keep members motivated while they work out; and www.CurvesComplete.com, an online weight-loss subscription service that provides subscribers with diet and fitness information, tools, experts and motivation to achieve their weight-loss goals.
“We look forward to continuing the Curves program in the Great Bend area and helping women achieve their goals,” said Ruble.
