Recently, while visiting Norma and Raechelle, the mother/daughter owners of Curves, it was interesting to learn they have gone “high-tech” and “Go for Green” which is a perfect match in our community. We asked the ladies for
an update to share with the community so you can learn more about this business. Through the High Street Association Merchant’s Committee, we will continue to feature “Issaquah Highlands Retail News”.
Smart Workout Ahead of the Curve
Imagine having the world’s most advanced fitness coach at your disposal. This coach customizes workouts based on your body structure and endurance and adjusts each exercise machine’s intensity based on your recent progression. It monitors your energy level and range of motion continuously to ensure you are achieving your personal potential. Then the coach automatically computes your workout data to produce a progress report, including the number of calories you burned and 3-D anatomical diagrams to show which muscles you’ve worked and how successfully.
This is exactly the role of the CurvesSmart™ personal coaching system, a new technology pioneered by Curves and powered by MyTrak that offers a custom, individually tailored workout, moment to moment feedback and progress
reports to keep members motivated while they work out. Curves of Issaquah is pleased to offer its members this revolutionary equipment upgrade.
After a member’s personalized profile is determined by a Curves staff member, the member is issued a CurvesSmart ID Tag. The tag is electronically recognized by the monitor at each station, automatically retrieving the member’s
profile to determine the specifications for her workout.
The monitor indicates: whether her heart rate is in the target range; whether the member is achieving her target intensity level; the range of motion for each repetition; and the number of repetitions. If the woman is exercising
correctly, all indicators on the monitor will be green. Members are enthusiastically encouraged to “Go for Green!” Following the workout, the system produces a progress report which allows the member to see, instantly and in quantifiable terms, her strengths and weaknesses.
“The CurvesSmart technology offers women the benefits of a highly skilled personal trainer without the expense,” said Norma. “It’s the world’s most advanced fitness training system. We expect our members to be thrilled with how this amazing workout will help them achieve their goals even faster.” Curves of Issaquah is taking new appointments to get started on the CurvesSmart workout on a first come, first served basis.
