curves could be the gym to fix it.
Hannah Davis knows why.
In an increasingly obese culture (
All the side effects of it (
Who are we and the gap between the gym
The people we think we should be have been expanding.
Bridging this gap is undoubtedly the secret behind the success of the curve.
Curves is located around the women\'s gym in the suburbs and residential areas, encouraging women of all shapes and sizes to come in and exercise.
This is a resounding success story.
Although it took McDonald\'s 25 years and 26 years to open 6,000 franchise stores on the subway, it took them only seven years to do so.
Enter the curve gym on the inconspicuous Ludden Road in karcoz north of Tynside and you will be impressed by the complete lack of the usual \"gym man.
On the contrary, there are
Elderly women working in T-
Shirts and sportswear.
None of them are very small and most people are chatting happily.
The operation is Sholeh [OK]
Cox, 33, is an American who fell in love with 30-year-old George Danny while they were all working in Hawaii.

Danny\'s mother [OK]
The 59-year-old is the secretary of stori and Parker, and father Cyril, 60, is the retired chief technology officer of Newcastle College.
While Sholeh was sitting in the gym chatting, a woman in her 40 s was walking with an enthusiastic friend.
The woman looked nervous, but after looking around and chatting with the receptionist, she seemed relieved and decided to sign up, which pleased her already a friend of the member.
\"We chose to build a base in people who want to use our community,\" says Sholeh.
There will always be a place for people who use the downtown gym, but that\'s not what we want.
\"People who come to the curve will never go to the city center.
They hope that their friends and family will be able to give spiritual support and that they will be able to easily integrate into their lives.
\"One of the main reasons women come to us is because we don\'t get into their homes.
\"In support of this Sholeh handing over a bunch of questionnaires filled out by members.
They were asked why they went to the curve.
The answer follows the pattern: * it is easy to schedule the exercise time in one day.
It\'s convenient for all the ladies and small ladies.
* Women only, close to home and short meeting time.
* Personal recommendation, convenient location.
The curve is based on the principle that muscles burn more calories than fat.
Its workout is based on a range of machines that work and strengthen different muscle groups.
\"Sometimes people say they don\'t want muscles anymore, but I tell them they want them, but they don\'t realize that.
\"The problem is that people think they will end up with bodybuilders or Madonna --
Typing the arm, but this will not happen with the curve exercise.
\"It strengthens and adjusts their arms and other parts of their body so that they are healthier, more energetic and easier to lose weight.
The comments of the members supported the theory.
Someone wrote: \"I \'ve been around and I \'ve lost my spare tire and felt more energetic.
The other said: \"This is the fifth week, I lost 10 to 11 lbs (
I am very satisfied with the result.
\"But the curve is not just a question of exercise.
Sholeh will soon launch a diet program to The Cullercoats group.
It\'s not about eating less, it\'s about eating better.

Founder Diane Sullivan.
So far, there are three curve groups in the north. East (
Located in the heart of Brighton, indarlington and new calcoates.
\"In the United States, the curve is huge,\" Sholeh said . \".
\"I was very surprised when I found out that there was no one near the North City.
Like Danny, I lost a lot of weight with curves.
When we moved to the north
We think this is what we really want to do.
\"Most curve franchisees are former members who understand philosophy and believe in it.
\"The curve is about fitness.
One side effect of this is weight loss, but we are not trying to make the body thin.
We all care about healthy bodies.
