Yes, it is that time of year again when we tend to want to make positive changes to our health and lifestyle. Like many of us, you may have gained a few pounds over the holidays and need to reset your health and fitness goals.
This is the time to visit the Aptos Curves facility and have a chat with owner Annette Hunt or one of her coaches, Charlotte, Laurel or Megan.
Any one of these experienced trainers will happily listen to your health goals, and help you come up with a fitness plan to become that healthier, stronger you. There is never any pressure — they understand and are genuinely on your team to help you be the best you can be.
Curves specializes in a full-body, low-impact 30-minute workout that is fun, fast and safe. Each workout targets specific muscle groups while still working the body as a whole unit. The Curves coaches work with you one-on-one, and in a group fashion assuring proper form and safety while motivating you to achieve the most effective workout possible.
Annette is a firm believer in low-impact, high-intensity movement to achieve and maintain a strong core for balance, correct body alignment for posture and an overall strong body for daily movements.
Along with her bachelor’s degree in dietetics, she is qualified to teach you how to make the right dietary choices to live a long, healthy life. If losing weight is your goal, Annette can help you obtain and sustain your new weight while protecting your muscles and bone density.
“Our Curves workout regime is safe for all ages and fitness levels,” says Annette, who has several longtime members — over 20 years.
“The entire Curves facility and program is designed for any age, any athletic ability, and it is inspiring to see our community of women work out together,” she says. “Our members range in age from 22 to 90!”
Curves is a lifestyle change.
“Exercise is a way of life and our coaches are here to help you stay accountable,” Annette says.
For those needing additional assistance with balance and posture, as well as pelvic floor strengthening, Curves Aptos offers 6-week classes with one-on-one and small group sessions addressing these specific needs.
