I chanced upon Curves Magnolia and learned that this is a fitness gym just for women. I was surprised because I have yet to encounter a gym that is exclusive to a particular gender. It is one of the franchise of Curves International, which is apparently one of the largest fitness centers for women in the world.
During my visit, I met one of Curves Magnolia’s coaches, Coach Jessie. She explained that their popular offering is the 30-minute Circuit training program. The training is said to work on every major muscle group with strength training, cardio, and stretching. Inside the gym, there are several machines spread across the floor which members use during the training.
Coach Jessie did a demo of the Circuit training and I even tried some of the machines. I was so surprised how you can feel the muscles working while on the machines. And unlike other fitness center where you need to hire a coach, Curves Magnolia makes sure that there’s a coach always available to help members with the correct posture, to answer questions, and offer support and encouragement.
I was envious that the girls can have this kind of workout at Curves Magnolia. But as Coach Jessie pointed out, they can’t open up to male clients because that would be against Curves International’s way of operating. All I can do is be glad that there’s a gym that women can use exclusively.
With issues about sexual harassment and similar security concerns, I think having a place where women can exercise without men looking on and roaming around is great. I’m not saying that men at the gym are security risks. I’m just saying Curves Magnolia is a fitness facility that women can enjoy fitness while feeling safe and secure.
Curves Magnolia’s 30-minute Cicruit training is ideal for those who don’t have much time to spend on the gym. With that short of time to exercise, you cannot say you don’t have time to be fit. And with the all-women fitness center, women can get into the exercise and feel more safe and secure inside. But don’t take my word for it. Check out Curves Magnolia for yourself and see what I’m talking about.
