Who wouldn’t take even a nugget of Jillian Michaels‘ sage advice about fitness? Her latest tip, provided in response to a reader question at EverydayHealth.com, has her recommending Curves for those who are stuck at a sedentary desk job.
Jillian responded with this question, “Is it possible to use your lunch break for physical activity, and eat at your desk when you get back? Take a walk around the neighborhood, or sign up for a quick, 30-minute class at the local Curves.”
Sharing that she once had a desk job herself, Jillian said that she had to make exercise a priority for herself “for my physical and mental well-being.” She says that any extra activity you can fit in to your day, even if it’s just 30 minutes a few times a week, is better than nothing.
Which is why a Curves workout would be perfect for the career woman, or even a stay-at-home mom with just as little precious free time. The female-only gym has several thousand locations in the U.S. and abroad. Women attend three times a week and complete the Curves Circuit, a 30-minute circuit training program that includes warm up, aerobics, strength training, cool down and stretching. A Curves trainer leads you through the entire workout.
Curves often provides free guest passes so that new members can try it without any obligation. Each franchise is priced differently, but it’s usually less than $50 per month. Keep an eye out for special sign-up offers.
