Curves fitness facilities are not like typical gyms. They offer 30-minute circuit training for women only.
â€œItâ€™s a workout for any woman, no matter what age or fitness level,â€ said Kaarin Mantz, who manages all three Fargo Curves facilities. â€œIt is planned out for them. They donâ€™t have to come up with a new routine each time.â€
Angela Jordahl-Olson owns the Curves territory rights for Fargo, West Fargo and Horace. She bought the three Fargo locations in September 2007.
â€œBecause it is all women, itâ€™s very safe. â€¦ Weâ€™re all in the same situation. Our needs are similar: to tone and firm and lose weight, so itâ€™s nice that weâ€™re all working toward those goals together,â€ Jordahl-Olson said.
All three of the clubs have been remodeled with new paint, carpet, window coverings, signage and dÃ©cor.
Curves has more than 10,000 locations worldwide. According to the company Web site, Curves is the worldâ€™s largest fitness franchise and the tenth-largest of all franchise companies. More.
