I would really suggest going to a Curves in your town to see what we are all talking about. It doesn't look like much but ask to do a workout and you'll see why it works!

A pad is another word for the recovery board. It;s a board that you use to bring your heartrate down after being on the machines. It is cushioned so you can jogg in place or do jumping jacks if you want although most women just walk in place.

The machines are hydraulic-resistant machines which means they don't require weights. The faster you pump the machines, the more resistance you create and the harder it works your muscles.

As for the amount of time you spend working out, 30 minutes 3 days a week is the recommended amount since you get very little benefit from going less than that or working out less than 30 minutes. Depending on your personal fitness level, you can go as many times as you'd like for as long as you'd like.

I've always been in great shape and I can honestly tell you that 3 times around going as hard as I can is enough for me. But each person is different.

Good luck an I hope you become a part of the Curves family!
