Founders Gary and Diane Heavin, committed veterans of the fitness and advertising industries, are considered the innovators of the express fitness phenomenon that has made exercise available to more than 4 million women worldwide. They share a passion for and commitment to women’s health and fitness. The Heavins opened the first Curves in 1992 in Harlingen, Texas. Their innovative, 30-minute fitness concept combined strength training and sustained cardiovascular activity through safe and effective hydraulic resistance.
The very 1st Curves in South Africa opened in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu Natal in September 2005. Since then, Curves has opened 110 locations across South Africa and neighbouring African countries like Botswana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Namibia and Nigeria!
Created specifically for women, Curves offers a complete fitness and nutrition solution. The 30 minute workout exercises every major muscle group and burns up to 2 000 kilojoules through a proven programme of strength training, cardio and stretching. In addition, club promotions and events encourage women to support charitable causes, learn about health-related issues and forge lasting friendships as part of the global community.
Enhancing the workout is CurvesSmart®, your personal coaching system. CurvesSmart® individualises and customises each workout by monitoring heart rate, workout intensity, range of motion and repetitions and then providing a progress report including number of calories burned!
Over 4 million women all over the world choose Curves to help them get the best fitness results.
