Curves Complaint - Curves Is A Ripoff, Don't Do It!

Review by annelong on 2008-11-04
Curves is a complete rip off. I was promised that curves would be enough of a workout for me because of their new "Curves Smart" program that stepped up the workout.

I have been on that program for 5 months and have seen no results. Half the time the system is down and does not work, even when it does it is a joke.

I filed a complaint with the owner, manager, and corp. They tell me "Curves is not for everyone." This was not in their sales pitch prior to me signing a year contract that they now REFUSE to let me out of.

I know people who have gone to Curves and love it but I could never do it. The idea of working out in a big circle with a bunch of other people and being told how long I can be on a certain machine bothers me. I'm a grown woman, I think I'm capable of making that kind of decision for myself.

I've never heard of a curves? Is this an all women's gym? What kind of place is this?

Yes, Princi. It is a workout center that employs only women and is for only women. They have a round-about workout system. Some cardio some strengthening. It runs about 30mins-1 hour if you do the reps twice. They have a website about their mission, costs, etc. We have 3 here in my town. I thought about going to it, but financially could not afford the monthly dues. So, I go out and walk a few miles or walk up and down my stairs.

Thanks SilverWings. I looked them up online and they have a facility here in town. But I think I'd rather just stick to my routine at home.

Yeah, that doesn't appeal to me either. There are certain machines I cannot physically "do," so I wouldn't enjoy it there. I also don't like the idea of signing a long contract. I think it's like $30 a month.

$30.00 a month!! That's expensive!
