    As the COVID-19 virus epidemic forced fitness centers and gyms to close suddenly and unexpectedly, Curves women’s gyms faced the unprecedented challenge of mobilizing at a moment’s notice to help their franchise owners and members.

    Fortunately, the Curves corporate team had spent the past two years implementing a new operating system and an updated website that provide at-home workouts, mass emails, app notifications, messaging platforms, product purchases, and more.During the current crisis, many Curves franchisees are leading or sharing Curves specialty classes for their members on their Facebook pages. These classes feature Curves coaches and owners conducting fitness classes, often live and in real-time.

    Members can access workouts through most any smart phone, tablet, laptop, or even streamed to a smart TV. The program replicates the in-club circuit using a resistance band in place of the machines.Curves’ most recent launch is its Six Weeks to Better Balance class, part of the Curves Health and Wellness Education Series. This series offers self-paced weekly exercises along with tips and strategies to help improve balance and posture.
