...no - this isn't for the debate board! I'm trying to decide which one to go to. I'm wondering how many women here go to a gym that specializes in women only, and how they like it. It sounds like there is quite a following for Curves here. I haven't priced Curves yet, although $$ isn't really a problem. I REALLY need to start an exercise regime. Are the Curves places generally open 7 days a week? - or does it vary by location. Does Curves have treadmills & bikes as well as their specialized equipment? I know it's time to go & visit each - but I'd like to hear from women who have tried one or the other (or both!) Thanks.
