I’ve tried circuit training at a different gym / sports house before and I felt that my head was spinning and that my heart would jump out of my ribs! Yes, that exaggerated. When I read that it is going to be part of LayBare’s blogger’s activity, initially I thought I’d like to skip.
On the morning of the event though, something tells me that I have got to go… and so I did. Boy was I glad I did! We first did a fitness assessment to identify where you are at your goal and how to achieve it by proper diet and exercise.
Our body measurements and body fat were taken, then we are all ready to start the workout. Their gym is female-friendly — there are no posters of buff body, just inspirational words to look at and live by. Do you want to know exactly what the Curves circuit is like?
The Circuit is made up of 12 strength-training stations (resistance machines) that work every major muscle group, two muscles at a time, where you elevate your heart rate. There are also recovery boards situated between machines which is a multipurpose recovery stations where you can walk, run or jog to maintain your heart rate by moving lively at the recovery boards.
Curve’s circuit training provides a complete cardio and strength training, total body workout in just 30 minutes. With a system that can burn up to 500 calories and work every major muscle group, you get an efficient and effective workout every visit.
After this workout, my view about circuit training totally changed 360 degrees. I am very interested with the concept of 30-minute-workout = 500 calories less. If you haven’t already, I urge you to try Curve’s circuit training. Check out either of their 2 branches.
Thank you to the wonderful ladies at Curves BGC for making my experience an enjoyable one!
