If you happen to have missed the grand reopening of Curves, located at 72 Woodruff St., Saranac Lake in the Warehouse Laundry-mat Plaza, stop by some day and take a look at what they have done. Newly done over inside, more spacious with the machines set further apart and a new changing room. Heather
Sprouse, manager, will gladly give you a tour.
Gary Heavin and his wife Diane are co-founders of Curves. Around thirty years ago he dropped out of pre-med school and took over a failing health club, which became a learning process. They owned and operated several women's health clubs over the next few years. Thirteen years ago they opened their first curves in Harlingen, Texas, followed by another two years later. Then Gary and Diane realized it would help the women more if they could franchise using primarily members of Curves. This proved to be the right move. Curves is the ninth largest franchise company in America and represents one out of every 14 health clubs. They have one location for every two McDonalds. They have fitness franchises in Canada, Mexico, Australia, Spain, Ireland, Tokyo, Buenos Aires and South Africa.
Curves' focus is providing a fast, fun and efficient workout in a comfortable environment. Also offered is an effective weight management program, taught in 6-week sessions by trained franchise staff. In this comfortable environment women support and encourage each other. Curves gives back to the communities with fundraising for local food banks. 0ne article said, "Weight loss center has food drive."
Stop some day and have Heather give you the Grand Tour of the redone Curves. Sign up for your workout. It only takes half an hour.
