I think Curves would be a FABULOUS place for you. I recall several threads like this from a few months ago so check the archives for better answers....but there is a gal that just started at my club, probably two or three weeks ago. I haven't heard her say it but from her general movements, I believe she has fibromyalgia and she's made so much progress since last I saw her (was like two weeks ago and I saw her again last night). She's still slow to get around the circuit but it's certainly faster than the first time I saw her and I think she's really seeing progress in other areas of her life.

A lot of people will tell you Curves was mainly designed for older ladies and people needing physical therapy and while I don't agree totally with that (My friend who's an avid athelete, hockey, softball, water sports, just joined and she finds it challenging!) I think it is a great place. Someone talked about a lady at her club that started out using a cane to get around the circuit and now she doesn't even have to use it to get in and out of the club!

Curves will certianly help you gain muscle mass and strengthen your joints. I say give it a try, you have NOTHING To lose. and if you still aren't convinced, try the free week trial and see how you feel :)

Good luck!
