Staying fit and healthy has become a regular lifestyle for most. The importance and visible results of physical and health fitness cannot be downplayed asides from the fact that you get to look totally amazing you also get “a sense of purpose and value, a better quality of life, improved sleep, and reduced stress, as well as stronger relationships and social connectedness.”
What happens when you really want to be about the fit-fam life, and you are finally ready to work for that summer body? Or on the long run, the all year body you have always dreamed of? but you don’t feel motivated to work out alone in your apartment, or you find it a tad challenging to work out in a mixed gym.

What is the Curves?
For many of us the first thing that comes to mind when you hear that word, is the lady curve, the main physical feature that distinguishes women. Her hour glass, her figure 8 or many other names given to it. The curve in this case is a women only gym founded in 1992 by Diane and Gary in the united states, with the aim of providing women the needed facility to work out openly without having to be self conscious of their looks or worry about being looked in a certain way by the opposite sex, where they can get to work on themselves in relative privacy. 25 years after this business which caters for women in this demographic was founded, the brand has become an international household name, with 7,000 outlets all over the world, with two of those outlets here in Lagos Nigeria.
