Hoboken Curves closing?

Got a tip that the Hoboken Curves may be closing due to lack of membership. While their local website is still up and running, they’re no longer listed as a current location on the main Curves company website.

If true, and as suggested in the photo below – maybe the tasty bakeries (Choc-o-Pain) and sweet-laden cafe’s (La Bouche) that surround the place were just too tempting for the plump ladies?

Perhaps 20 lb. “Cheese Danish Dumbbells” would be a better way to workout and stay in business?

I have met a few women who have gone there. No raves. Low key workouts. Note, if you care: the founder “has been criticized for his conservative political views and donations to anti-abortion causes. Some members have quit the clubs over his political stands.”

I toured it last year. It was small–just one room that you walk into when you open the door– and the equipment appeared to have been used very hard for a very long time. You work in a circle, doing each station for a short period of time. There’s some signal and you switch to the next thing. I think they aim for a half hour workout, but this was some time ago and I can’t swear to that. I also think there were some classes offered, but their schtick is the circuit. The price was very reasonable.

A few years ago when they first opened this particular location, I found out that Curves was (not sure if it still is) one of the fastest growing franchises at the time. Anyway, if you are looking for something very low impact and quick, this is… Read more »

my old roommate used to go and liked it –low impact; if you want a little circuit training and a way to get your heart rate up…also if you’ve never worked out before, it’s a good starter gym
