Curves Food Drive

Curves “Feed the Need” Food Drive Kicks Off On March 11 In Food Drive’s 15th Year, 100,000 Donation Goal Will Benefit Local Food Banks and the Children’s Charity “Blessings in a Backpack” Curves Will Waive Joining Fee for New Members Who Donate Vernon B.C. March 10, 2013– Curves International announces its 15th Annual Food Drive, “Feed the Need,” and challenges Curves’ club members in the U.S. and Canada to meet a goal of 100,000 donations during the two week period of March 11 – March 23. Each club, including Curves of Vernon, is asking its members to donate bags of non-perishable food or cash to support their local community food bank. In addition, Curves of Vernon will waive the joining fee for new members who bring in a bag of non-perishable food or donate $30 to their local food bank during the two week period.* When combined donations from all Curves clubs reaches the goal of 100,000 donations, Curves International will donate 10% of March 2013 profits to “Blessings in a Backpack,” a non-profit organization that ensures that impoverished elementary school children are fed on the weekends throughout the school year. “This year’s theme, ‘Feed the Need,’ really represents both what we want to accomplish with this year’s food drive and what we do as a business,” said a Curves of Vernon staff member. “We want to help feed local families and school children who would otherwise go hungry on the weekends – and we also want to ‘feed the need’ of local women seeking a health and fitness program that fits their busy lifestyle.” Since its inception, the total contributions to local food banks from the annual Curves Food Drive exceed 75,000,000 pounds of food, according to Curves Vice President of Marketing Mike Raymond. “Each year, we encourage our clubs and members to donate even more than the year before. Our annual Food Drive is a great way for members and their communities to fill a real need by restocking the shelves in local food pantries across the U.S. and Canada during a time when they are usually low.” For more information about Curves of Vernon, located at #1 2901 27th st, and the 2013 Curves Food Drive, contact a Curves of Vernon staff member at 250-503-1129 or 117963@curvesmail.com.

Curves® of Vernon Introduces New Weight Loss Program that Burns More Fat than Diet Alone

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact:Angela YablonskiCurves of Vernon250-503-1129117963@curvesmail.com

Curves® of Vernon Introduces New Weight Loss Program that Burns More Fat than Diet Alone

New Curves Complete® includes exercise, meal plans, and coaching - for as low as $14.95 a week and no joining fee!

Vernon, B.C. (Grassroots Newswire) January 14 - Curves of Vernon knows that most people who are serious about losing weight know that they won’t get the results they want by just dieting. They also need to exercise and they need encouragement to stick to the plan. This was the thinking behind the revolutionary new weight loss program Curves Complete® - the only program of its kind on the market that offers exercise, customized meal plans, and coaching in one integrated program. And, according to a Curves of Vernon staff member, the cost is comparable to what other programs charge for diet alone.

Just ask Emily Dirkson, of Montevideo, Minnesota, who lost 38 pounds and four dress sizes in just 90 days on Curves Complete. "I gained a lot of weight during my two pregnancies," Emily said. "I never lost all of the weight from the first, and after the second, I felt just terrible about the way I looked. Throughout this process, I have learned many things. I learned a lot about serving sizes and about how metabolism works. This plan has been a great success for me. After 90 days, I am now 38 pounds lighter and about four sizes smaller!"

What makes the program so successful?

"It’s really as simple as 1-2-3," said Curves’ Registered Dietitian Nadia Rodman. "The Curves circuit gives you strength and cardio training to protect your muscles and burn fat, our proven nutrition plan is fully customizable to your lifestyle, and your Curves coach helps you set goals and reach them one-on-one. If you simply follow the plan - which you can print as a weekly tracking sheet and take to your coaching sessions - you simply can’t help but lose. Or rather, win."

Preliminary results of Curves members who participated in the program prior to its January public launch have been phenomenal. Findings indicate that nearly 100 percent of weight lost on Curves Complete is body fat, compared to conventional diets in which weight lost typically includes up to 30 percent muscle tissue. By preserving lean muscle, Curves Complete helps maintain or even boost the body’s metabolism for better long term results.

Just ask Anne Scott, from Calais, Maine, who lost more than 26 pounds in 90 days. "I have always been an emotional eater," said Anne. "When I feel bad, I eat. Curves Complete taught me how to cope with these feelings and make better choices. Recently, I had a day where everything went wrong. I was at a low - a deep low. But during that day, eating junk food never entered into my thoughts. I found that I did not need to eat to feel better. I just coped, and got through my day. I’m proud of myself."

Curves Complete is the culmination of years of research involving thousands of study participants. "Ninety-five percent of dieters fail - or lose weight only to gain it all back - not because there’s something wrong with them, but because there’s something wrong with conventional diets," said Curves’ Director of Exercise & Research Katie Mitchell. "It takes a combination of three things: exercise, diet, and coaching, or motivation, to successfully lose weight as body fat rather than lean muscle and then keep it off."

For Patricia Culbertson, from Ocean City, Florida, the program has been nothing short of a miracle. "Three months ago, I was suffering from depression, hypertension, and high blood sugar from the excess weight I had gained over the years," Patricia said. "My doctor told me I would probably have to start diabetic medication at my next appointment. Thank goodness for Curves Complete and my coach, Joni! I’ve lost 25 pounds and my blood pressure and blood sugar readings are very good. I can’t wait for my next appointment with my doctor. I have a new outlook on eating, dieting, and motivation, and I feel really good about myself and my accomplishment."

"The success of the program hinges on the Curves Complete coaches, Certified by Cleveland Clinic," says Mitchell. "After all, it doesn’t matter how much you know about proper diet and exercise - if you don’t have the motivation and accountability to follow through with them, the knowledge is useless. Curves collaborated with the prestigious Cleveland Clinic, ranked among the top four hospitals and the No.1 heart hospital in the United States, to create the Curves Complete coaching certification for its clubs."

Curves Complete includes a Web portal which features easy meal planning, recipes and shopping lists, goal tracking, motivational tools, a vibrant online community for support, and more. And once a Curves Complete member, always a Curves Complete online member - the Web portal and tools remain 100 percent free for life.

"With the launch of the new Curves Complete program, Curves becomes the first and only company to offer women a complete weight loss solution - exercise, meal plans, and coaching - in one convenient location and for about the same price as other weight loss companies charge for diet alone," said Mike Raymond, Vice President of Marketing at Curves. "This is an important step in the fight against the chronic obesity that plagues our society. Curves is proud to offer this revolutionary new weight loss program and make it accessible and affordable for millions of women."

For more information about Curves Complete, please contact Curves of Vernon, located at # 1 2901 27th st, at 250-503-1129 or 117963@curvesmail.com or visit www.curves.com.

Curves Of Vernon Reinvents as a "Curves Complete" Club

Curves of Vernon has now got it all - diet, exercise and motivation - and they’re offering a FREE WEEK TRIAL!

Vernon, B.C. (Grassroots Newswire) June 8, 2012 -- Losing weight isn’t easy. It takes real commitment to make the necessary changes to diet, exercise and lifestyle.  And, for most people, it takes a plan. That’s why Curves, the fitness franchise designed exclusively for women, has developed Curves Complete, a simple, easy-to-follow weight-loss plan that combines the three keys to taking off weight and keeping it off: diet, exercise and motivation.

Curves is the only place you can get all three, and Curves of Vernon wants you to try it FREE for one week.

"For many women, managing the simple logistics of sticking to a diet and exercise plan is what defeats them," says Angela, Vernon Curves Owner/Manager. "Meal planning and preparation, shopping, designing an effective and age-appropriate exercise plan, coping with everyday emotional highs and lows - it can be overwhelming. Sometimes it seems easier to stick with the status quo. That’s why our new Curves Complete program provides a foolproof plan for dealing with all of these diet challenges - and helps keep women on track for success."

The Curves Complete program incorporates all three key components of a successful weight management plan and is designed to help dieters lose up to 20 pounds and 20 inches in just 90 days. Women are seeing real results and sharing their success stories with others at www.facebook.com/curves.

Research shows that up to 95% of dieters regain their lost weight, and then some. It’s not because there’s something wrong with them, it’s because there’s something wrong with conventional weight loss plans. To lose weight and keep it off, you need three secret weapons:

· Diet: Weekly personalized diet plans and shopping lists created through the Curves Complete website, available exclusively to Curves Complete members. These tools help dieters enjoy the convenience and portion control of expensive mail-order diet food programs while shopping at their own grocery stores - and for a fraction of the cost! The plan even offers a convenient new Heat & Eat option so that dieters can include healthy frozen food choices like Lean Cuisine® and Healthy Choice® in their diet plans.

· Exercise: Workouts at Curves of Vernon that combine metabolism-boosting cardio with strength-training and stretching while providing a continually more challenging workout experience as fitness improves.

· Motivation: Daily motivational videos produced through a partnership with the renowned Cleveland Clinic that offer advice and strategies from a panel of experts to help you make healthy choices and keep the weight off. Plus, one-on-one time with your personal coach each week to support, encourage and motivate.

"Personal coaching is the heart of the program," said Yablonski. "All Curves Complete participants receive a Health Assessment and a 15-minute, personalized, weekly coaching session with a certified Curves Coach that includes a weigh-in, progress assessment, goal review and monthly body measurements to track results. That extra accountability is very motivating, and the coaches help you develop simple, practical strategies for getting and staying on track."

Curves Food Drive 2011

Vernon, B.C. (Grassroots Newswire) May 1, 2011 -- Curves, the world’s largest fitness franchisor, today announced that the 2011 13th Annual Food Drive brought in 1000 pounds in Vernon which will benefit Vernon’s Salvation Army. Worldwide, Curves members have donated more than 61 million pounds of food since 2004.

Angela Yablonski, Vernon Curves franchise owner says, "Our members have generous hearts. So, it’s no surprise to me that they rallied behind the food drive." she explains, "We set a goal of collecting 1000 pounds of food and we met that goal! I am really proud of our ladies."

But the food donations weren’t just from the Vernon Curves members. Non-members also brought in bags of groceries in exchange for an opportunity to join Curves with a waived service fee. It’s notable that in these tough economic times, thousands of women took advantage of this opportunity to help themselves become healthier while contributing to the needs of their community’s less fortunate residents. Last month’s Food Drive accounted for 28 new memberships at the Vernon Curves.

"Curves and our members are delighted to help our community," said Yablonski . "The Food Drive is an excellent program that fits perfectly with the Curves philosophy: promoting the health of the whole woman. The opportunity for our members to give back to the Vernon community promotes the spirit of giving."

Motivational Minute

A recent study found that most people want the same thing: happiness. How do we get happy in our lives? Do we wait for the happiness fairy to sprinkle us with happy dust or plan for the day the happiness stork delivers a bundle filled with smiles on our door step? Sorry, no. We must figure out what will make us happy and then go out and get it. We've figured out that being healthier will make us happier, so we go to Curves and we eat better. Not so miraculously, we feel better about ourselves...and happier. Now just expand on that. Look at your happiness factor in your relationships, religion, job, being creative, etc. Focus on one and a time and see what you can do to improve your happiness quotient.

The Canadian American Business Council, the voice of the Canadian American business community, announced today the recipients of the prestigious 2010 Canadian American Business Achievement Award Winner. 

On November 5, 2010 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia, Curves International of Waco, Texas, and Mytrak Health System, of Mississauga, Ontario, will receive the award for their collaboration in designing, developing, and installing CurvesSmart, a tangible method to successfully motivate club members by displaying to them the health benefits and disease prevention that is directly associated with their increased fitness.

"We are honored to receive this recognition," said Curves founder and CEO Gary Heavin. "To further our mission of strengthening women, we're priveleged to work with MyTrak to make CurvesSmartthe world's most advanced fitness coachavailable to millions of women globally."

CurvesSmart is a state-of-the-art personal coaching system that has been incorporated into Curves’ 30-minute circuit workout. It works by storing each member’s fitness information and giving them moment-by-moment feedback. CurvesSmart automatically adjusts to an individual’s endurance level to allow members to stay continually challenged and achieve their potential on each machine, during every workout. CurvesSmart then automatically computes all of the workout data to produce detailed progress reports that show overall muscle strength, fitness progression, calories burned and more.

Development of CurvesSmart began in 2005, with a national US launch in the fall of 2008. Currently, there are more than 4,300 Curves locations offering CurvesSmart in nearly 20 countries.

Each year, the Canadian American Business Council (CABC) identifies innovative and successful alliances between Canadian and American businesses to recognize the benefits that these partnerships bring to both countries – in jobs, innovation, and revenue creation. The group of judges (made up of prominent members of the Canada – US business and academic communities) considers sustained profitability, job creation, financial strength, environmental responsibility, and exceptional innovation. Past award winners have included Research in Motion (RIM), Intel Corporation, CMC Electronics, and Active Control Technology. 

“The judges for this year’s Business Achievement Award were not only impressed by the working partnership between the two companies but also by the positive impact their solution has on improving the lifestyle and health of individuals in North America,” said Jordan Robinson of CABC’s Board of Directors and Chair of the 2010 Judging Panel.

“The CABC is pleased to recognize that through their joint efforts, Curves International and Mytrak Health System have created a technology and a very successful cross-border alliance that serves as an excellent example of Canadian and American companies making things together.”

Curves Hosts 2nd Annual Zimbabwe Walk

On September 26th, Curves Vernon will be hosting its 2nd Annual Zimbabwe Walk to raise funds for the Zimbabwe Project, an initiative that financially and physically supports projects such as building feeding centers, washrooms and dormitories for those suffering in Musana and neighbouring villages.

The event will commence at 1:00pm and consist of an approximately 8km walk with a break for refreshments and snacks at the downtown Curves location.  The $20 registration fee includes a participant t-shirt and all proceeds are forwarded to the cause.  Additional donations are always welcomed (tax receipts provided). 

“This year we hope to reach our goal of raising $6,000”, said Angela Yablonski, Owner of Curves Vernon.  “This amount will feed and educate 200 orphans for an entire year - a little bit goes a long way in Zimbabwe”. 

Peter Maguwu, one of the Zimbabwe citizens Curves Vernon works with regularly, said “the Zimbabwe Project has been playing a vital role in life support for the Zimbabwe people…a project which the Zimbabwe government was failing to do due to economic hardships”. 

“Curves Vernon has always been dedicated to improving someone’s life – through weight loss or a charitable initiative.  We’re excited to be able to make a difference in a country where they need it so much” said Yablonski.   

Join us in making an impact on the lives of Zimbabweans.  To learn more about the cause visit www.zimbabweproject.com or if you would like more information about the walk and how to get involved call Curves at 250-503-1129.

CurvesSmart Personal Coaching System Keeps Motivation High with Real-Time Feedback

Angela Yablonski, Vernon Curves Owner knows that for many women, finding the motivation to begin an exercise program is easy.  The real challenge is to stay motivated and to continue to work toward fitness goals. Recognizing this problem, Curves of Vernon has implemented the CurvesSmart™ Personal Coaching System.

"CurvesSmart is a personal training monitor that provides minute-by-minute feedback on the intensity and effectiveness of your workout to help keep you motivated and on-track," says Yablonski.  "And right now, new members can join for just $30, so it’s the perfect time to experience the difference that Curves and the CurvesSmart system can make in your life."

Mounted on each piece of equipment in Curves 30-minute circuit, the CurvesSmart monitor is programmed with each client’s fitness information to provide personal feedback during each phase of the workout. The system automatically adjusts to each individual’s endurance level to ensure that the client stays continually challenged and achieves the full potential on each machine, for every workout.

"Knowledge is power - and that drives motivation," explains Angela.  "That’s why the CurvesSmart system provides feedback during and after each session." In addition to the feedback that displays during their workout, Curves clients receive a detailed progress report after their session based on the workout data collected by the CurvesSmart system. The report computes overall muscles strength, calories burned, and progress toward personal fitness goals. 

"When women can see that their workout level is effective and can review their progress toward their goals regularly, it’s easier for them to stay motivated and on track," says Yablonski.  "We are excited to offer this state-of-the-art personal training system to women in the Vernon area, and hope that they will take advantage of our Join for $30 promotion to begin to discover their inner strength today."

What's different about the Curves Weight Management Program?

Many women have a list of diets they've tried over the years and the one thing all these diets have in common is that they often fail. Why? They leave you hungry and deprived, and they slow your metabolism, setting you up for a never-ending cycle of yo-yo dieting. The Curves Weight Management Program changes all that. Here's how:

It Revs Your Metabolism
This is perhaps the most significant aspect of the Curves weight-loss plan, and it's what allows you ultimately to be delivered from dieting for good. With a higher metabolism, you burn more calories all day long - even when you're sitting on the couch. The Curves plan raises your metabolism through eating - yes eating - and strength training, which builds calorie-burning muscle.

It Allows You to Eat
On the Curves plan you eat all day long - five small meals rather than three large ones. This helps keep you from feeling hungry even during the low-calorie phase of the plan, which lasts only one week, and it keeps your metabolism revved. Once you reach a plateau in your weight-loss efforts, you eat more, not less, to kick your metabolism into a higher gear.

It Offers a Wide Variety of Food
Curves has 2 diet solutions; one is higher in protein and one is higher in carbohydrates. The protein intake ranges from 30% to 45% depending on the solution that you choose. The plan recommends limiting your intake of refined carbohydrates and sweets, but no foods are off-limits. There are also Vegetarian and Gluten Free meal plans.

It's Healthful
Diets that deprive you of certain foods also deprive you of the nutrients contained in those foods. Because the Curves plan not only allows, but encourages you to eat a wide variety of foods from all the food groups, your diet will be rich in the nutrients your body needs.

It's a Diet You Can Stick With
By now, you've probably already figured this one out. The Curves meal plan satisfies your hunger, your taste buds, and even the occasional less-than-healthful craving, making it easier to stay on track.

It Provides Permanent Results Without Permanent Dieting
The real magic of this program lies in the fact that it helps keep metabolism high as it helps you drop pounds. You often reach your goal weight with a higher metabolism than you had when you began. And if your metabolism does diminish from significant weight loss, Curves has a method to raise it without regaining weight. The payoff? Dieting ends - for good. You'll be able to eat as much as 2,000 to 2,500 calories a day without regaining weight.

It Works
Does it all just sound too good to be true? Under the direction of Richard B. Kreider, PhD, FACSM, scientists at Texas A&M University have put the Curves fitness and weight-loss program to rigorous testing, scrutinizing its effects on hundreds of women just like you. The results? Curves works. Women on the Curves plan have lost weight, boosted their metabolism, lost body fat, gained muscle, and enjoyed other healthy benefits.

But don't take it from us. Enroll in the Curves Weight Management Program, a unique nutrition program with classes where you'll learn to lose weight and keep it off for good.
