Why Curves Will Put Inches On You

  • Hey Fit Body's,

    Many, many people desperately want to lose
    weight and feel better, but are deeply afraid
    of joining "the gym"...

    that's where specialized places like "women
    only" gyms became popular because they
    provide a non-intimidating environment
    to help women get in shape.

    There's just one problem with places like
    Curve's---they will put inches on you.

    Here's the deal. Take a look inside most Curve's
    and what do you see---machines.

    What's wrong with that?

    Well if you consider that the majority of people
    who join Curve's to lose weight lead sedentary
    lives therein lies the problem.

    Why in the world would you come from a world
    where you spent a lot of time sitting, only to
    do more of the same when you go to the gym?

    It just doesn't make sense. Researchers have
    proven time and time again that the more muscles
    you use during an exercise the more calories
    you will burn.

    Sitting in a machine and moving your legs in
    and out...not so much.

    If you joined Curve's to lose inches and fit into
    smaller clothes do yourself a favor,
    get outta those machines.

    Still not convinced?

    I actually got into an argument with a Curve's
    owner about this next subject.

    The machine's inside Curve's are always the
    same---meaning you do the same exercises
    over and over and over again.

    Your body will easily adapt to new exercise
    in about 2 weeks.

    If the exercises in Curve's never change
    how is your body supposed to adapt and
    continue to lose inches?

    When I posed this question to the gym owner
    she said they get around this by "...switching
    the order of the exercises."


    So you switch the order of the exercises but
    you're still doing the same exercises?

    Sorry, that just doesn't work. Your body is
    smarter than that and will not adapt by simply
    re-arranging how you do things.

    This is a one-way ticket to a plateau. That
    bad, dark, scary place where you can't
    lose anymore inches, because you've been
    doing the same thing for weeks or months and
    your body is yawning through your workout.

    Well...what's the fix?

    Boot camp.

    Yes, I know it sounds biased because I own
    a boot camp, but just look at this:

    You get exercises without machines
    Workouts with infinite combinations
    A push or shove to work harder than you ever would on your own
    Motivation and support up the wazoo (nothing like crushing a hard workout with a group of like-minded people)
    Meal planning to button-up your eating (80% of your results come from what you put in your face)
    Increased energy
    Feeling better, looking better, and yes fitting into smaller clothes
    Well there it is. I'm going to stop myself here
    because I'm getting worked up about this and
    my diarrhea-of-the-mouth could keeeeep going---

    but let me leave you with this

    If you're already doing some the things I mentioned
    like mixing things up regularly, and not
    sitting down to workout, then pat yourself on
    the back and rock on.

    If you're not doing those things then take
    that step (bring a friend or two) and get
    your butt to a boot camp : )

    Committed to rocking your fitness,
